Going to Yellowstone


We woke up really early since we knew the ride was going to be through nice country however it was a windy 12 Deg C which was more than what we were prepared for, so we stopped and put on our cold weather gear.


Also I managed to book two rooms in Yellowstone for the same day which is very difficult since it is usually sold out, as a matter of fact all the camp sites were sold out and all we could find were these two rooms overlooking yellowstone Lake.

We entered the park from north entrance, and and stopped at the natural hot water springs which some smelled like rotten eggs or Sulfur, and to us oil company workers (H2S).
We continued our ride through the park and reached the Park Ranger Museum, and found out that originally the army stater patrolling this park in the late 1800s and early 1900s to stop poachers from killing the animals,and preserve the wilderness.

On out way to the hotel we were confronted by a buffalo in the middle of the road, and later witnessed several along the way, every time on was seen the traffic stopped while tourists took pictures.


We reached the hotel around 6 pm, and found out there was no internet, TV, or cellphone reception. So we slept early.

  1. Salam to all. Beautiful pictures, a wonderful video and soothing Native American music(I don,t know what you are doing on bikes, you should be movie directors). I always thought buffaloes are aggressive animals but it appears they are familiar with human being specially those ones on bikes. I have come to conclusion that Kuwait and USA have two things in common, 1st is the concrete barriers in your picture(we have thousands of them over here)and 2nd is the H2S lake, While you have experienced it in nature we experience it when carpenters visit us. ما شاءالله you all look well and would like to tell you that while you are freezing at 12c we are experiencing boiling temperatures of around 120F. Take care and God bless you and keep you safe. Bu abdulrazaq

  4. Salam to all.I understand you are taking flight to London today, have a safe journey. Few Kuwaiti news papers wrote about your adventure today. The article "Three Kuwaitis dream of traveling world on motorcycles".The content was very good and your statements on the objective of your adventure was even better namely your local and international messages. I feel the media should do more but unfortunately they maintain focus on politics and economy as if there are progresses on both issues!!!. Take care and may God go with you. bu abdulrazaq
