    Hey guys I just got back from a trip to Vegas for the World Monster Truck Finals! It was my first time in that part of the country and the first time in Nevada and I had a blast. It was just my dad and I and we loaded up the car and drove the 6 hour trip there and 7.5 hour trip back (huge traffic jam). Anyways I had fun and thought that you guys would like to see some pictures of the trucks.

    We were driving along in the middle of the desert stuck in a 1.5 hour traffic jam so I set the mp3 player that we had a little FM modluator for on random, out of 1700 songs I had loaded on there it chose.....

    I did not go to the race, but I was at the pit-party during the day, on Saturday before the race. I always take my little 6-year old boy to the pit- party they have before the race to see the Monster Trucks, and take that one ride in the back of a Monster truck.

    Let me guess. The traffic jam was either coming out of stat line or at the four corners outside of barstow.:doah:

    Digger won the races....Meents won freestyle.
    Yeah I'm not super farmiliar with those hwy's but it was just over the border on hwy 15 (like the only way in and out I guess) and there's some stupid stop light in the middle of no where and it backed us up for an hour and a half.
    I'm sure some of you guys know where I'm talking about.

    Yup, That's four corners. Also known as Kramer junction. They need to blow that intersection up and make it an over/underpass. :mad:

    Sounds like a good idea to me....it's the only light for miles so I don't know why they slapped it in instead of just going over and under each other like you said. :dunno:

    Well being that I'm 16 and there w/ dad it isn't exactly on the agenda. I did find that vegas is one huge city built completley upon a foundation of call cards though, there everywhere! In the bushes, streets, ground, fences, everywhere!

    I don't know honestly, from what I saw I think that it wouldn't be a place that I would want to live but with any town what you see as a tourist vs. what you see and do living somewhere are two totally different pictures. I did see some huge tracks of homes that looked a little more realistic compared to what I was used to seeing which looked like a nice place to live.
