Mrs Lifecruisers contribution to theme On The Road
In a Jeep on the Greek island Crete 2004. Down in the low hill landscape - otherwise there is stunningly beautiful, high, narrow mountain roads (no fences!), which made me covered in sweat every time we arrived at our goal.
Not for sensitive persons:
Mr Lifecruiser had nightmares about falling from the loose edges. We almost succeeded once when we came around a mountain (height 1600 m/5250 ft) and the wind grabbed the roof (fabric) of the jeep and almost swept us away down the mountain side! Mr Lifecruiser had to step on the acccelerator to avoid it. That was a little bit too close of being blown away! I had no intention to start a new trend of Jeep surfing…

    Whooo, I guess I am sensitive! and wind is a 4-letter word…glad nothing happened! happy saturday! my pic is up :cool:

    Lifecruiser: Pheeeew, me too! I’ll pop over as usual as soon as my nose let me ;-)

    Dani UNITED STATES said:

    LOL Great photo! Take care. Dani

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Dani, you too :-)

    Wystful 1 UNITED STATES said:

    Yes, indeed….that would give me nightmares too. Great story behind the photo.

    Mine’s posted.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks, I’ll pop by later :-)


    Yikes, that would scare me as well. I don’t handle even 2 story malls well; much less a road like that. But I’m sure the scenery was gorgeous!

    I played for the first time this week too. :grin:

    Lifecruiser: I know, we’re afraid of heights too, both of us!

    Pam UNITED STATES said:

    GREEEAAATTT shot. Scary drive huh?
    Mine’s up.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Pam. Yes, it was terrifying.

    sisiggy UNITED STATES said:

    I guess I have to cross Crete off my list. You probably need to keep your eyes open to enjoy the experience and I’m afraid that would be impossible for me. Well, not without the screams of terror, which tends to rattle whomever is driving, WHICH WE DON’T WANT TO DO AT ALL COSTS!

    Lifecruiser: Or, you could just drive on the so called National road from east to west, no mountains in the way there….

    Maribeth UNITED STATES said:

    That is beautiful!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it truly was :-)


    Whoa, scary. Just reading the story could give me nightmares!

    My photo is up.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it’s that kind of experiences that kinda hang over you for ever and ever… pheeew…

    Bethany UNITED STATES said:

    What dramatic color. I guess it goes well with the story!

    Lifecrusier: Yes, it’s that beautiful just before sunset color they have over there.


    Beautiful photo! Though the idea of falling or blowing off the cliff is extremely frightening!!! YIKES!!!

    Happy Saturday, my photo is up!!

    Lifecruiser: I still get covered with sweat just by the thought of it… *lol*


    Another awesome pic from Mrs. Lifecruiser, as always! :mrgreen:

    I would be a NERVOUS wreck riding up that mountain… I’m not fond of 2 lane roads! And windy, mountain roads w/no lines in the road… even worse! ha! I’d want to cover my eyes w/a pillow, but the scenery is so beautiful that i’d have a hard time figuring out what to do!! ha!

    Have a great weekend!! ♥

    Lifecruiser: Thanks froggie mama, let me tell you that I was closing my eyes sometimes. And very foten I leaned over away from the edge when sitting in the jeep. As it would help… *lol* Hope your weekend is great too!


    Jeep surfing :shock:- I’m on- just so long as we are using your jeep. Amusing post!

    Lifecruiser: The new trendsetters ;-)

    Pat FRANCE said:

    Great photo! There are many of these same sort of roads in Morocco - lots of close moments!

    Lifecruiser: Pheewww…. Let’s not go there, not these two places after each other at least, we need to calm down in between ;-)

    Tricia CANADA said:

    Great shot. I love the shadow of the jeep - it sort of helps show how steep the angle was that you were traveling.

    The photos are always beautiful here. :)

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Tricia :-) Yes, I love the shadow too, you can actually see us sitting there too if you look close :-)

    pamela UNITED STATES said:

    What beautiful country! Wow, that must have been a heck of a gust of wind to catch the roof like that…Good that your hubby thought to accelerate!!! :mrgreen:

    Lifecruiser: Me too, I don’t even want to think about what could have happened! Pheeew.


    That’s an adventure!:grin: LOL :wink:

    Lifecruiser: Yes, somehow we tend to have some adventures when we’re out :-)

    Janet UNITED STATES said:

    holy MOG! THAT sounds scary!!!

    Lifecruiser: It truly was… pheww!

    tnchick UNITED STATES said:

    holy MOG? LOL

    WOw, cruisers… I’m so glad you’re here to tell the story!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, we really can be glad to be here today :-)


    My dream has always been to visit Greece, the Acropolis….Parthenon…island of Crete ! Wow….but the Jeep-surfing brings this idea to a whole new concept ! tee-hee Great photo…I see your shadows…way cool ! Mine is finally up…was a little under the weather today….but am alert and alive now.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, there is a lot fo things to explore - you forgot the famous Knossos ;-) Glad to hear that you’re better now!

    eija FINLAND said:

    Ok, I got worried last night because I didn’t check out your photo - but I was too tired to open the computer anymore. And then you had visited me! Thanks for stopping by :)

    I was once down at Crete. It was… hold on… Must have been 1985! Wow, that makes me feel old! I hate those mountain roads - they make me sick to my stomach - and that’s why I avoid the northern parts of Sweden and Norway too…

    Lifecruiser: I guess I’m just dumb as a donkey - I hate the heights but can’t resist the mountains beauty :-) I avoid the northern parts of Sweden mostly because of the short summer they have - and all the awful mosquitos they have.

    eph2810 UNITED STATES said:

    Oh - awesome picture. I wish I could visit Greece one of these day…Maybe in the near future - who knows.

    Lifecruiser: I do hop that you will be able to do that, it’s so worth it :-)


    It is a great shot but no I am terrified of heights and this sounds way to much for this ol girl .lol

    Lifecruiser: He he, i know the feeling, but I tell you it’s hard to resist when you’re there :-)
