They had a security checkpoint which consisted of us rolling down all our windows and a guy in uniform asking if we had any firearms.
I hope you are aware that you do not have to answer their questions or permit an inspection. The best answer is always, "I don't answer questions. May I go now?" Even if you are innocent - especially if you are innocent - answering official questions can be dangerous.

I think I know why. Arizona went "constitutional carry" meaning anyone over 21 not prohibited from having a handgun may carry one, open or concealed. Nevada permits open carry but requires a permit (not difficult to get) to carry concealed. It's really none of their business, but some people have to be given make-work jobs, I guess.

I don't understand why you refuse to get your quotes right, when within 20 seconds you could confirm them for yourself:
How about I say, "Nobody ever responds to what I say, not even to tell me I'm not funny., or didn't like what I had to say, or liked it. So I wanted to see f anyone noticed" That's not the real reason, but it'll do.

Duuude, weed is Legal here?
Only in Nevada. 'Vark, if you plan to partake in this, use all of it up before you leave the state (unless you're going to California.) Recreational marijuana is not legal in Arizona, only medical.

Yeah, if you get caught in Arizona with weed, that's what is likely to happen.

Its best not to fuck with those guys. I once came back across the Niagara Falls from strip clubbing with a group of friends, in 2 cars with cb radios for communication with each other. After the first car went through, my wonderful friends in the first car started yelling "boog, boog, boog" through the radio as we talked to the black border guard. He searched our car.

And Freemont St.

Thinking about going to the airport and getting away from the homeless people. Plus there are no smoking sections there and we can get away from all the people smoking weed.
I'm for legalization, but not at work. I saw and smelled a LOT of service employees toking up at the registers and places on the strip.

Both my son and I learned important life lessons the evening I took him down to Freemont Street.

There were a couple of nuns that stripped down to unsightlyness and a coupe of fat guys in bras and bunny ears that I desperately want to un-see

Where was that picture? Looks like a convenience store? God, Vegas has gotten even worse than I saw it 2 years ago.

we were sitting in a sidewalk Starbuck's and I zoomed in between the bars of the beggar fence. She was dancing* out in front of the Whiskey liquor restaurant.


*flopping is a more accurate term

Home now. Awake for 26 hours, couldn't sleep on the plane, too much turbulence. Had 10 minutes to get off in Detroit, run all the way thru the airport and get on the connecting flight. 40 minutes later we landed in Rochester.
Hot shower, little bit of real food and now im sleeping till noon tomorrow.
