Jul 30, 2017 - Leeds ND
Sun, 30 Jul: Continuing north and west—so why is it so hot? We appear to be amidst a bubble of hot air. When one is at 46° north latitude it should be a tad cooler. At least that's what it sez in the book (the "book" is often very, very wrong...) As we anticipated, about 1730 yesterday we fired up our generator to cool the coach and provide power to "nuke" our dinner. We ran it 3½ hours, after which we were quite comfy. Once the generator was shut down we opened our bedroom windows and ran the salon ceiling vent fan, which...Jump to full entry

Jul 8, 2008 - Leeds!!!
We arrived in Leeds today! North Dakota...a little different to Yorkshire, especially the weather!! Stopped off in Rugby (I know!!) on the way. It is the Geological Centre of North America, so we stood right in the centre of USA, Canada and Mexico!! Great visitor Centre where we picked up brochures and road maps for all the states we have got left to visit. Also saw loads of oil wells. The lady said that oil was found in North Dakota in the 50's but during the past year it ahs really taken off. We didn't expect to see that but it was...Jump to full entry
