When your life is rural, it is fun to dress up and go to town. It feels special to spend the night in a motel and eat at a restaurant. You are so close to God's great outdoors that sleeping under the stars is the furthest thing from your mind. You are more inclined to get away from it, with a short stop at some semblance of civilization.
I have been wondering lately where do Las Vegans go to "get away" for the weekend? Living in town, makes me itchy for the wilds. Just like living wild used to make me miss Starbucks and Chineese food.
