Mediterranian - Vacation in S a r d i n i a

Postby JEOH on Thu Jun 23, 2011 2:29 pm

Hi Folks,
last weekend we finished our vacation to italy and want to provide a few impressions here.
As we did no serious playin' during the annual meet with our vacation so close, we are pleased to report that 'Godzilla' with a new radiator and fresh brakes in the front has showed no problems during this trip of 4.500km - except a little noise from the front axle we eliminated with marine liquid spray and now some rattling noise from the exhaust (cat)?!

Still on a German motorway: A pre-series car from Stuttgart (probably the new GL?)
Image

Before embarging the ferry we found a good use for the sidesteps: As bistro!
Image

Another ferry took us to an island between S. and C o r s i c a

Another short visit - the chance of cheap flights will end some day...

Great track, but definitly the wrong car...
Image

Sadly there has been a bushfire in the neighbourhood a week before - watch the post under the car
Image

For that reason they got those stunning trucks now...
Image

...and for God's sake some rain. But why the h**** a little creek under our tent?
Image

Someone interested in my antique camera...
Image

Met really nice people with interesting truck
Image

And seen a solution for a winch-on-demand...

This year we had another nice vacation, GodZilla took us to beautiful places and we had a great time!
PLEASE POST COMMENTS here: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=44147

Our first goal was the Mille Miglia 2012. At Casalmaggiore we found a cheap and good Hotel - ten minutes by feet away from the main road. It is very impressive to watch these cars like an old Bentley passing the normal traffic, using the wrong lane and all oncoming trafic is pushed to the side... All these people at the street, everyone has fun - Great!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We met Lukas, a truckdriver from Germany and have been invited by friendly guas at the local Citroen-dealer to fresh Lambrusko Vine, CHeese and Ham from Parma. So I did oversleep the earthquake during the following night. When the Mrs. told me aboutthat in the morning and we heard the (bad) news we felt very awkward. In Italy you should not stay in bed during an earthquake......

We travel further to Canossa. Sadly, it kept on raining during the next days.
So we got some mud (Fango!) at the normally quite dry island. Unused with this circumstances, we had to stopo in some areas, as wet stones on a lane at a steep hill or muddy lanes near a cliff are not that good when you are on your own! Luckily, we managed to turn around without going down!

Image

Image

Rain is followed by sunshine..

Image

As usual - uninvited guests:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

BTW:If you need a thingy to lubricate the cross joints, that means in Italian STAMPA DI GRASSO.

We got this for my pleasure:

This year we succeeded in booking the "Y", not an upgrade as usual, when the crowd at the counter of the car rental has vanished :wink:

Some roads are closed and will not got repaired

Image

some are contaminated (Mil Zone - Radioactive Material) grr

Image

Some impressions of the tours...

Obviously are signs unimportant due to satnav...

Re: Mediterranian - Vacation in S a r d i n i a

Hello,

back again from an extraordinary vacation to Italy.

As our truck GodZilla seemed to be well prepared with an inspection and fresh timing belt & fluids, the problems with the rear diff cover (after market) remained and the air breather kept leaking oil! We did not want to have a break down of the rear diff, so we decided to take the now famous Greenstripe for the trip. She took us to merry old England and back to Germany. Sardinia is an island as well - so what's the difference?
The broken and shortened hose to the radiator was doing fine the last few hundred kilometers...

Foul weather near the blackwood forest in the south of Germany. Stop for the night near Freiburg.
Image

Next morning rushing through Switzerland. The oilleak was stopped by a magnifying fluid (doing fine for app 5000 km). As the traffic news mentioned a queue in front of the Gotthard tunnel, we decided to do a little curve around and take the little St Bernhards. There was still snow beside the road.
Image

Next stop was Fiorano bei Modena as we wanted to attend a concert. Finding a hotel was easy and we had a short walk downtown. But the stage was moved...
Image

and Tazenda - a band from Sardinia - had their gig in a theater, due to the rain.
Image

Next morning we looked around the sights of Fiorano. The church Parrocchia Di San Giovanni Battista…
Image

… has a fascinating adress
Image

Joh. Paul II – statue on a place named after him.
Image

Typical landscape north Fiorano - Emilia Romana
Image

Villa Clotilde with a well cared garden.
Image

Vignola near Modena - Rocca di Vignola
Image

But we wanted to go for tuscany, so we added this to our todo list...

Volterra. This was not our one nad only visit. So many things and places to see...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Tuskany - as in the ads.
Image

Truck level on the carferry from Livorno to Golfo Aranchi
Image

The ferry has been half empty. We speculated of the crisis, fuel and ferry costs. Three years earlier there were hot offers as bargain prices, now these costs have more than doubled.

Monti - shopping for the daily needs and some "housekeeping"!
Image

Image

Image

Ala dei Sardi - On the way to the ruins of Sos Nurattolos, a vilage of the bronze age.
Image

Image

Image

Near Mores an ancient bridge of roman times.
Image

What does this mean - Fine Strada Asphalto?
Image

Strada Bianca or Green Lane :dance:
Image

SatNav noticed „not digitalized“ – as we came to a quiet oasis in the middle of nowhere.
Image

Neverever had a chance to sit in such a thing till now
Image

Image

Bosa!
Image

Bosa Marina – lying on the river mouth of Temo, was called Terrida by the ancient romans.
Image

This tower has been erected by the Spains during their domination.
Image

manhunt poster
Image

Bar at the hotel – the landlord owns a Range Rover…
Image

We became a member.
Image

What car is this?
Image

Yep, a Pickup...
Image

Fabrication Gonow.
Image

Camping Nurapolis
Image

Peninsula Sinis - Beach view direction south. Weather still changing, some rain, cold. Like weather at Sibbertoft...
Image

Cuglieri - yearly stop for our oil of olive in cans. Then we found a lane looking promising...
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
.
Image

This trail to Monte Ferru was very nice: We have seen Mufflone (wild sheep) - of course no chance of getting a pic of these.
The lane was very narrow, the hose at the thermostat loosen. Have to sorten this.

San Leonardo - Blessing with some holy water.
Maybe you know this mineral water as "Siete Fuentes"soled worldwide.
Image

So we looked for a garage to get help with the hose...

Image

Image

Image

… but they couldn't help us at Oristano.

So the cat...
Image

and jay are getting irrated...
Image

as Ian takes care of some improvisation.
Image

Angle 90° replaced with some copper tube.
Image

This kept the truck rollin' and we could do some trips around leaving bad lanes out:

Basilika St. Giusta near Oristano
Image

St Giusta Statue
Image

Notice the different coloumns: Taken from the ruins of Tharros, these are from different ancient people: phoenician, etruskian and roman...
Image

Fordingianus: ancient roman thermal bath on a hot fountain.
Image
Might it be that sulfur does any harm to the radiator or the engine?

Lake of Fiume Tirso near Busachi. Except one lake all sardinian lakes are reservoires. This has several levels.
Image

Evolution step one of a provincial road for off roaders?
Image

St. Cristina - 3000 years ago a inhabited area
Nuraghe - old as the pyramids
Image

Image

Holy fountain. Twice a year the sunlight aims through the ceiling on the water.
There must have been visitors - I want to believe, Agent Mulder...

Image

Image

Red wine of Contini's - only some bottles... We need a bigger truck!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Getting to the eastern coast crossing the island: Strada Bianca
Image

with underpass
Image

In the mountains again again some correction of the water level
Image

Province Ogliastra Eastern coast
Camping Telis sunset
Image

Image

Image

Pedra Longa
Image

Image

Image

Conversion of the conversion – trying to sharpen the copper to make stop the hose slipping down
Image

Now the hose is still very tight - and the remains are more and more rotten. A cause of sulfur?

This witness doesn't know an answer to this question…
Image

Image

Image

Baunei Murales in development
Image

Local Rammstein-Fan gives a hint for a garage which might help
Image

But at Fiat/Alfa they renovated and only accepted high priority clients – Carabinieri, Guardia Finanzia and Polizia…
German AA was no help at all. Thanks to greg for communication and his efforts!

At least a friend donated a contact to a lokal workshop. Look at this

Image

So we took the lane to the valley of Codula Sisine - wanted this for years.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Golgo - Piscine with pig
Image

Baunei - honey of local production
Image

Poster advertising an OffRoad event for women
Image

old oven
Image

old cars
Image

old kitchen
Image

On a weekend during summer the old houses are opened for visitors to show ancient style of living and traditions.
At least, most houses have been left during the seventies or early eighties of the last century...

Schlampe is German and means bitch
Image

South of Tortoli
Image

River near Cardedu
Image

no coming through
Image

South of Lanusei
Image

Image

what a practical truck!
Image

Arbatax - view to Golfo di Orosei
Image

Forest north of Arzana
Image

Image

This old station is now a bar - runed by a local friend
Image

Image

Observatory Lanusei on 1000m above NN
Image

Image

Torre di Bari – picture taken an hour later
Image

Valley near Ilbono
Image

Above Talana
Image

The evening before departure we noticed som fuel smell at the back of the truck! Rotten fuel line (backflow). Next morning our new friends got this sorted as well.

At the harbour
Caution:
Image

This is tight, I say...
Image

Supper
Image

Image

Rotten Fuel Pipe... Sorted forthe moment with some glue and rubber strips
Image

Image

Hope you enjoyed the piccies!

Preparing the next trip...
Kind regards,
Ian

May/June 2014
Left Home with KMage 208.300 - End of 1st day as usual between Freiburg and Basel for an overnight. The rotten fuel pipe did not make it so far and we got support by the ADAC...

Image

... who managed to arrange a date at a workshop for Volkswagen for a few minutes of welding on a Saturday morning:

Image

Meanwhile Marion did some sight seeing.

Image

Beside the motorway traveling is much smoother.

Image

In switzerland passing Lake of Genova and Montreux...

Image

... up the mountain and to Italy taking the "Great Sankt Bernhard Route"

Image
Image
Image

following the valley of Aosta into the plain of river Po - next overnight in Fontanetto Po.
Very little place, followed just a little sign "Albergo" leading away from the main road. Very tiny and tidy hotel with a very good restaurant for supper. Seemes to have found new friends as the fare for the room changed trough the evening from 50 down to 28 euros... :dance:
Image

Rice, rice, rice and rice - everywhere you look!
Image

At Casale Monferrato viewed some churches, found the old man with the white beard.

Image

Unmarked police FIAT.
Image

Sunday ride of Motorbike-Veterans-Club Chiavari of Liguria spotted

Image

Image

3rd night of vacation on the ferry Livorno - Golfo Aranchi. Shortly after arrival we realized some destruction of winter storms!

Closed road behind Olbia
Image

Ethnographic Museum of Aggius
Typical kitchen of a sardinian house - up to the 60/70s

Image

Camping site Nurapolis near Narbolia as basic camp chosen and relaxed in a forest of pines. A bit disturbed by some news of a local magazine:

Image
Quelle: L Unione

Some fellas decided to steal a car and put it on fire in the neighbourhood. A passing driver tried to treat the flames with his exstinguisher, but a yelling from some bushes made him flee: "Pi** off, or we will shoot you!"

We visited some old friends and made new friendships, got wine and olive's oil for home's stock.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We liked to go with the MTs, but the Italian government did a law in January wich strictly forbides the use of winter tyres with speed index Q and lower between May and October. As the AT have the required speedo index, we have been on the safe side.
Our friend with the Range is not very upset, as the local authoryties are told to ignore this with 4x4 vehicles. But tell this a guy from the polizia stradale on a motorway around Milan!

Some other "sinners" with M+S during summer - TzTzTz!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Got a nice sun shield, as bikini tops for fronteras are not available. Our friend felt like traveling in the PAPAMOBILE...

Image

The girl on the left jumped first into the water. Boys are a little shy here...

Image

Comparing Gonow - Isuzu-Bedford Corp. Frontera

Image

As temperatures have not been below 30° C during daytime, we decided to leave the roof down, even with a fully packed truck during our drive to the eastern coast!
City of Ottana, famous for their carneval.
Image

Another one with the wrong tyres?

Image

Image

Met some guys from France with their Service-Truck, ATV Rallye

Image

Fountain of Su Gologone, exit of a underwater cave, emitting fresh water 300L/sec!

Image

Image

Feeding four times a day, please!
Image

Railroad - Trenino Verde, Arbatax. During the main season with a steam engine as well.

Image

Coming from happy cows:

Image

Mountain of Oline near Talana

Image

Image

Image

Image

Foul weather on the day of departure - at least our third day with some rain!
Very hard in the mountains, very dangerous for motorbikers.

Image

Calming view from the ferry in the evening

Image

Arriving at home after three weeks at KM 212.400. Technically at the truck no further faults!

Sadly I have to report Marion fell down on Friday, the 13th of course and broke two rips...

Have a nice and healthy summer to everybody!
Kind regards,
Ian

Sorry for my pigeonenglish.

Oooops - we did it again! (Britney Spears)

By a sudden there were two weeks off, weather at home was foul and cold and we decided to pack our bags and boxes, threw them into Godzilla an went off heading south.

Switzerland, Gotthard's traffic-jam caused by roadworks. Motorway was jammed as well...
Image

Top of the mountain (Kate Bush)
Image

View of the old track. We will take this one another time if
- brakes are in better condition (need new pads now after being back home)
- we have enough time left heading to the ferry in Italy
- I want to scratch some curves
Image

Autostrada A 15 Parma dir. La Spezia
Image

At Livorno. First by leaving the car a good shelter against mosquitos is essential.

Image

Image

Image

The vessel arrived with a short delay of nearly 2 hours - we have been informed before via SMS. The cause was described as "for operating reasons" turned out on the sea as some bad weather with heavy wind, more waves than usual and a bit wetness...

Image

After arrival we headed directly to Tortoli / Arbatax, friends were waiting.

Image

A new lane as a bypass through a nearly dry river. Good for us, poor for caravans and mobile homes.

Image

TOUR Monte Ferru
With assistance by a booklet for endures we found some lanes through the mountains I was keen for years:
Image

Image

Image

Image

The way to the top (app half a mile) was too steep for our Frontera occupied with three people. Put it in low gear, but caused by the automatical hubs it was difficult as the road was filled with concrete... We turned and went downhill again when a Defender simply passed by!
Maybe without the 220 pds of our friend...

Image

Image

So further round the mountain. View north to Gulf of Orsoei, the peninsula of Arbatax with 'our' campsite, a harbour, shipyard and railwaystation.The name 'Arbatax' comes from arab language and means the 14th - related to the watchtower of the Saracens.
In the following picture you can see another one at the coastline as little with spot.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

View to the south - Mountains of Quirra. Mostly rerstricted area belonging to the military. Lots of rockets on the ground of the sea and parts of tank-destroying material polluting the countryside with radioactivity. Sheeps with two heads and other birth-given defects are not rare...

Image

Image

Image

Image

While reading a Italian 4x4 magazine I found an article about Fronteras and found out that my coke had a crash before. A sign...???

Image

Guests for supper

[img]http://up.picr.de/19535132vn.jpg[/img

Image

This time we spotted even more 4x4, some shurely on their way to Africa.

Image

Hazardous goods the Italian way.

Image

TOUR Monte Idolo bei Arzana

Image

Image

Image

An angel's statue on the top

Image

Image

Upper Flumendosa Lake. All the landscape belonging to the village of Arzana.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Without a guide and unavailable detailed maps (most are based upon data of the U.S. military created during WWII !) and our SatNav saying: Not digitalized we decided to try the way to the lake next year.

TOUR Pedra Longa

Image

Image

This bar was expanded last year by these neat terraces. Service there requires a raised fee of 10% more. As I had food and drinks for 6€ it was worth the 60 cent!

Image

Image

A little party with some neighbours...
Image

... some of them still were knocked off the other day!

Image

No alcohol for the kitties!!!

Special barbecue motor made of old spares of a car. Wich one? Who cares - it works.

Image

And guest for the night. M. plays MAMA TEMBO and this is the result.

Image

TOUR zur CALA SISINE

Last year with Grünstreifen, this time with Godzilla as we had a passenger - our white Frontera is lacking the passenger seat in the back.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The last 1,5 mile has to be done by foot. Anyone who goes by car or motorbike without permission has to pay 800€!

Image

Image

Vie north to Cala Gonone

Image

Image

Image

During the way back we had to make place for a Defender of the local Police and a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport of the Mountainrescue, coming with siren and blue light. Sadly, no time for a picky.

Image

Image

Image

"Stagno" of Tortoli, no breeding of tyres but of fish.

Image

Image

This arrived last year by mail after we had left:

Image

In Lotzorai there is some old church

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Supper on the ferry heading back home

Image

Me in my hammock

Image

Image

Bilanz:
Start km 214230
Finish km 217380

Fuelconsumption average 10,3 Liter per 100km, not that bad

Technical failure a hanging 'sky'

Image

and a broken mat below the seat. Repaired by a cutting board for less than 5€ - done in a minute.
