> Took Becky, Dustin and Jennifer to Boulder City I let everyone drive around on the dry lake on 95.
Also taught everyone how to use a wrist rocket. Shot off a bunch of fireworks. yippee!!! Saw the carshow in Boulder City along with their Octoberfest celebration
I was amazed at how many cars that were there, that I had owned in my life (65 Chevy SS, 74 914 Porsche, 63 Chevy, 62 Chevy, 65 Chevy, 72 Nova, 75 Mazda, 74 Cadillac, 72 Vega). I guess now they're all classics. I sold most of them as junk, I only paid $25-$300 for a car in those days. Drove up boyscout trail just south of Boulder City
Going up was strange. We passed a rocky field with air ducts coming up out of the ground. Then we passed an iron smelter. THEN, we came up to what looked like a flat radio telescope. At the end of the trail, there's a point where you can see Lake Meade, Railroad Pass Casino, and Las Vegas. What a view!

> Went to Boulder City to visit some friends in a band.
Missed Chuck Shepperd, but connected with Mark and Sandy. They're fun people. Mark plays in a band, and they own a small janitorial business. Crazy people (like Becky and me).

> Drove 200 miles touring Nevada Primm, Nevada. Visited the Dry Lake
Just north of Buffalo Bills is a dry lake that's 2 miles wide, 5 miles long. It's perfectly flat and perfect for trying out your vehicle at high speeds. You can do anything safely out there in a vehicle! Visited Goodsprings.
This old town (founded in the 1800's) is home to a haunted bar, old mining buildings, houses and trailers with a backyard Sandford and Sons would drool at. Visited Sandy Valley.
I remember when this town was hot in the real estate arena. I knew people out there. The girlfriend I ended up married lived there. - I could have died near Sandy Valley in a high speed motorcycle wreck
I left the road over a hill with an unmarked curve doing 80mph. I got bloody, with bunch of stitches, but I survived.
- The people who bought out there bought on speculation. What a hype. Its a sandy valley with a collection of some very strange people. Someone built a porch surrounding their 20' travel trailer. Very Odd thing to do. Someone else planted a strip of grass 5' wide by 100' long. I guess they like to mow grass. It looked kind of stupid.
- They have gliders out there, a dome building, some kind of ranch, and off road races. Drove 20 miles through the desert to Pahrump.
If you haven't driven through the desert, you're missing a real treat. Some of the trash is over 50 years old.
How does it go, bury a cheap Timex watch in the desert and in 1,000 years it becomes priceless! Bought $40 worth of fireworks in Pahrump.
For me, that's a life time supply of cherry bombs...Yippee!
Pahrump has casinos, brothels, fireworks, fish farms, turf farming, and lots of trailers. It's a town out of this world and one step out of time!
