    The Wahweap camp grounds at Lake Powell are right on the border and a nice view.

    Chongo is a hog. He would never let Mason drive. Ok We have it all worked out except for Twin Falls. I'll have to figure that out tomorrow.

    Wait a minute.

    Where's Sin City? I don't see it anywhere in your drive plans. How is it humanly possible to drive anywhere in a north-westerly direction without going through Las Vegas...hanging out at the blackjack tables...getting free drinks...checking out the unbelievable women who perform at the cabaret shows...and dropping a few $$ on the very attractive (and legal) hookers?

    Oh wait. This is a family trip.

    In that case, leave the kid and wife in the car while you have your fun.

    Thx...Doug
