OT - Highway 95

I was fortunate enough to make it to the Vegas Summer League this year, if only for the weekend. It's been a while since I had driven by way of Highway 95. I had forgotten how picturesque and desolate (and hot!) this part of the country is. My son, Andy, who is also a Blazer fan, came along for company and to do most of the driving. Old mining towns like Hawthorne and Tonapah provide the needed rest breaks for stretching and eating. And, for comic relief, the famous roadside brothels with names that make you chuckle: Wild Kat Ranch...Cottontail...Shady Lady...

There's almost an imaginary line you cross as you leave desert behind and come into Las Vegas. I always wondered whose idea it was to make a city in this particular corner of the world.

I saw Dave and Ken at the Sunday game. Andy got lots of autographs. It was a great weekend. I recommend the trip to anyone who enjoys travel and basketball.
