me and doc at the dam in the morning
So remember that drink i had, yeah well here is where it comes back into the picture. me and doc had hired a service called "pink jeep tours" to take us to the hoover dam. the guide shows up in, Surprise! a pink jeep, or in our case a pink suburban. everything was going great we had a father and son from australia with us and the guide was some 50 something chick originally from oregon who knew everything about vegas and its environs. it took about 1.5 to 2 hours to get to the dam. when we got there we took the tour waaaaaaaaay down inside. which was cool except for the elevator, which holds about 60 people and they make sure it's filled to capacity. we saw the generator's and all the diagrams, overall it was pretty cool. then we went back up top to take pictures. and lo and behold my drinks form the night before decided that they hadn't come quite far enough up yet. so i yakked all over myself while we were walking through the little electrical power generation display. yeah, it was awesome! luckily i was wearing a sweatshirt, so the puke was mostly on that, mostly. and so i rode the entire way back to the wynn with my puke filled sweatshirt in my arms, and the wonderful aroma of puke all around me, dude, don't drink absinthe and kahlua, NOT COOL!
