US-66 didn't go through Laughlin as it wasn't even there when the highway was built. Neither was Bullhead City or the dam or nothing. This was all just open land, except for Oatman. The second pic shows Sandra overlooking the road heading east, on the way to Kingman. The third pic is all that's left of a gas station that used to be at the top of the pass back 80 or 90 years ago. You can see in the bottom pic how curvy the road was back in the day, compared to the Interstate now.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
