    Hey Brent and Sharon!!

    Watching History Channel, How the States got their shapes. One guy said virtually all of Nevada is either Gov't land or belongs to a Casino. Does that mean you guys are a Monarchy? We could use some royalty here......Duke & Duchess of ???? And of course, the royal pooches.

    Very, very large swatches of Nevada are owned by the guvmint, and they let you go and play around on a lot of it.

    No royalty here. But we are happy enough with our little patch of sagebrush and rocks! LOL

    There is one guy around here that claims to have turned his property into a sovereign nation, but I haven't tried that yet...

    I like the way this guy thinks. I wonder if he has a newsletter.

    Me too. I've seen him on TV. He appears to take it 'sort of' seriously...

    The guv'mnt (I should say, we the people) owns it because no one else wants it

    Which is fine with me...I love cruising through the mountains and valley floors at 85 mph with no one else around...

    Wimp. It's more sporting with a few bazillion other cars on the road doing it. Come visit LA. We'll show you what fun it can be.

    (I'm seriously envious of you guys' location.)
