Gen! Thank you so much!
We have been checking out movie-locations.com - as well as movie location overviews at imdb.com, and we have a long list of movie locations that we haven't gotten around to write about on the site yet. But it's easy to forget some movies when the focus is on the road, and I'm so glad that you made me remember two of my own favorites. The Bagdad Café is a sure stop (and I'll rewatch the movie tonight!) - and of course: the Whistlestop Café in Juliette, Georgia!! Wow, that's a place I've wanted to visit since I first saw the movie! If only Igdie could be there as well!
As for the Thelma&Louise-locations, we're planning to see many of them as we go into Utah. We're probably staying in and around Moab, Utah for a day or two, and sooooo many movies, from Stagecoach to S&L to recent Wim Wenders masterpiece "Don't come knocking", were shot in that area.
But we're thankful for all tips about movie locations as we know that there are several movies and locations slipping our minds! (I'm also searching through this site to find other movie location tips - like your post about S&L locations =)
Syv, thank you for your tip about the National Parks Pass! We're planning to visit some National Parks along the road, and we have been reading about them at the nps.gov site, but I wasn't aware of the possibility to buy one pass to enter all of them.
And thank you both for your input on the insurance thing. We might actually tro to get some advice from the US Embassy here in Oslo, even though getting into it these days is pretty much like entering a fortress.
BTW - I had a look at your pictures, Gen, and they were really inspiring!!
