On the road back from Yuma

Finally the end of the road trip! I know a 3 day trip was stretched into weeks of blogs, however, you saw something different each time. Trust me went to DQ at least once a day and I have pictures from each time that I could be regailing you with!

We left Yuma in the afternoon, so we did hit many places in the dark.

On the way out we stopped at the phallic big gun by the Yuma armory.

We saw funky little businesses in the middle of nowhere.

Look at all the services this one thing provides- AND IT WAS CLOSED! That looks like a place that should be open LONG HOURS.

We saw the sun set

And finally we came upon the honey place again. Can you believe that my friend never had gone into it. Something about she being female and that being a dodgy trailer advertising self-serve honey. However, I was all over it!

There wasn't a creepy person in there, he left a notepad and sold on the honor system.

I looked around for the mansion that this little honey empire built, but I didn't see it. Probably because it was too dark I am sure.

But the funniest part, was a little town called Searchlight, Nevada. It is where Senate Majority leader Reid is from. Now Searchlight is teeny tiny, so not a big budget for policing.

They even move Officer Stiff around so people wont get used to him and, I dont know, pass him off as "human."

Next post I plan to bring some culture to the blog and post about my latest museum trip.

you are so lucky that you get to travel so much! I am not sure I would want to go get self-serve honey either! Then again, I did see the movie the Hills have Eyes!

I love the help-yourself-honey 'store' - I hope people didn't rip them off.

When we lived in Boulder CO (1993-95) they started to put dummies in police cars too - it was really effective, surprisingly enough!

Bringing back memories when we lived in 29 Palms and had to go thru those places. I do hope noone takes advantage of the honey guy.:(
