I’ve been mostly off line for over 10 days for a trip to Las Vegas. I went along for the ride as Himself attended Def Con 25 It’s a “cyber security” (hacker) convention.
2017 0723 (Sunday): Outbound to Twin Falls. We were up and on the road by about 0800. Uneventful, but boring trip, arriving Twin Falls about 2030. Long stretches of wide open land. And very hot… 106 degrees. We entertained ourselves with listening to podcasts: mostly “Hidden Brain” from NPR, Malcolm Gladwell’s “Revisionist History” and a couple NPR Science Friday.
2017 0724 (Monday) Twin Falls to Vegas: We left Twin Falls about 0730. Google had told us the shortest route was straight south. Turned out to be a 2 lane road through rather desolate countryside with very few services. There wasn’t even cell phone coverage most of the way! One of the pit toilet “rest stops” had a sign warning to beware of rattlesnakes.
Once checked into the hotel, we made it straight for In n’ Out Burger! It is THE BEST and we haven’t had any in years as they are only available in California and a couple neighboring states.
Over a couple days I worked on this journal page about the trip.
Also did a postcard to send to a friend:
