Oatman, AZ & Laughlin, NV

Yesterday, Sunday, Larry G., Mary, Teddy & I took a day trip to Oatman, AZ and Laughlin, NV. Oatman is a historic western ghost town and mining camp located on old Route 66. During the day wild burros wander into town from the surrounding hills and feed on carrots and other goodies handed out by tourists. Periodically a wild west gunfight is reenacted on the main street in front of the old hotel.

From Oatman
we drove over to Laughlin, NV to the Colorado Belle Casino for dinner.
Laughlin is a mini Las Vegas with several large gambling casinos located SE of Vegas across the Colorado River from Bullhead City, AZ. Here's Teddy gambling away our retirement savings. We are now pennyless and will have to move in with Mike & Toni for the rest of our lives.
