My godson Billy has seen the movie Cars approximately 3 times. Plus 109.
In honor of his 6-year-old self, we took a detour onto Route 66.
I'm going to shoot straight with you. It was a detour we could have skipped, despite the nostalgia.
Next up, was the Hoover Dam.
It really was a sight to see, although it required a vehicle pat-down before entering. Apparently several of our larger states get all their power from this tourist trap.
The best part was finding out how many ways you can incorporate "dam" into a sentence without getting a PG rating.
1. Dam tour.
2. Dam pictures.
3. Dam security.
4. Dam parking deck.
5. Hot dam.
What did we miss?
Fun Fact: Boulder City, formerly the town where dam workers were housed, still does not allow gambling within town limits, a regulation imposed in the 1930s. Boulder City is the only town in Nevada to prohibit gambling.
So we did not linger.
And the source of my mother's spiral into debauchery.
For at least a second.
