    hey all.. just grew a wild hair and want to plan to take a little road trip this summer while i am out of college. I am going out west (will be driving all the way out there since i cant rent a car ... not 21 yet..)ive been to yellowstone and glacier... but other than that.. no where out that way. i do want to go to vegas though and spend a night there. i know i cant gamble or anything (can i even play the slots?) but im sure theres more there than just gambling. i want to hit hoover dam and the grand canyon. where else should i go? btw.. im planing about 3.5 weeks. i just need to get out and live a little! being stuck at home working while im this young all summer sux!


    thanks for the input guys/gals

    Must go to Santa Monica peir and 3rd street province, lots of cool thinge to do and the beach is a minute away and the weather is the best. Another good place is pismo beach where you can hit the dunes and a great place to eat there is a small resturant called SPLASH. Those are my favorite places to visit.

    What about the Meteor Crater that is east of Flagstaff? Went there as a kid, was pretty cool.

    If you make it up north you should go through Lake Tahoe you could even check out the start of the Rubicon trail.

    I'd make a point of hitting up Moab and Arches National Park. That whole area looks amazing to me. Thats one of the places I wanna hit up when I do a road trip.

    Bring your MTB if you come to Vegas. We can hit some single track or I can show you some downhill if that's your thing.


    EDIT: I just saw you mentioned in the summer. Nevermind. Unless you like riding at night, that's when we ride during the summer months.
