GUEST BLOG SERIES SPECIAL - Dave D - Only Googlebot Reads This Blog - Bears Across America: The Hoover Maneuver

I am Dave, I do stuff
Meet our friend Dave from Only Googlebot Reads This Blog. He shares with us a series called “Bears Across America” where Dave and his wife pack up the toddler and the dog and hit the road for the ultimate three week adventure. It’s nothing but fun, great pics and geocaching the whole way as told by Dave. Enjoy!


Bears Across America: The Hoover Maneuver
April 26, 2011 saw the continuing adventures of a bunch of bears on their journey to the wild west of America.  Todays journey brought us from Flagstaff Arizona to Las Vegas Nevada.

In between is a little engineering project called the Hoover Dam.

Visiting the Hoover Dam proved to be the most annoying experience I've had this trip.  The issue is that for some bizarre reason I could not have a dog in my car and park it in the parking lots close to the dam.   I can understand not having a dog walk around the dam, but why the restriction with them being in a parked car?  Government Restrictions I was told.  bah.  So we parked in the far lots, and walked down to check out the dam. The fact that you can walk over the dam and look down, way way down, to the bottom is cool.  Otherwise its a huge chunk of concrete in the middle of a desert.



The dam itself is a pretty impressive piece of engineering, and beautiful in its own way.  It is not a surprise that this is where they kept the All-Spark, and Megatron.

Lake Mead, the lake created by the dam, is also beautiful, tho not as big as I expected.  The drop in water levels as the Colorado River is drained for use in Las Vegas and LA is remarkable (thats the white band you see in the photos).  Just goes to show the hubris of Man to build major cities out in the desert.

After we spent 20 minutes at the dam we headed west again and arrived in Las Vegas in time to put Zeke down for bed.  Las Vegas itself is an amazing place to drive into.  Desert, desert, desert, middle of city.  There is no middle ground :)

Stay tuned for more from our adventures in Las Vegas.

This is a great post and awesome pictures! Looks a lot like our world headquarters.
I really like this whole series. Only four more weekends, booooo. Dave I think you should have another adventure and pick up right where you leave off. Thanks!

You took some great pictures of the impressive Hoover Dam. The water levels in Lake Mead have, for the most part, dropped steadily over the last ten years. I think it's now only around 40% capacity or something like that!

Thanks for sharing your visit there with us.

We visited the Hoover Dam a number of years back. We met up with friends from WI in vegas. I remember being "taken in" by them when Phil showed me a "jackaroo" in a glass case in a cafe/museum. Yes i was taken in! Lol. Hubby took a video of the dam way way down and up to the top. Once home we showed our daughter the video but she couldn't watched it as it made her dizzy lol

It is unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding kamaspelltemple@yahoo.com. For the past 2 years, I have been so depressed after losing my husband to another woman. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I had have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn’t know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as DR Kama has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. i decided to contact Dr KAMA and he assured me that I will get my husband back in 48hours, after the spell has been cast. within that 48hours my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my HUSBAND who has not called me for past 2 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR KAMA released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I'm writing this testimony right now I'm the most happiest woman on earth and me and my husband is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that's why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR KAMA for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in case you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. kamaspelltemple@yahoo.com tell: +2347063258525.
