My dad started taking me out to the Death valley area when I was 5 years old, that's fifty years ago now. That's was where he told some of his best storys. Stories of the times he spent out there before me. As I got older, we would sit around camp at night, yes with a cold beer, and all of us who were there would here about the locals in Ballarat that he knew. I learned a lot of the history of the people who lived out there. I was even lucky enough to meet a couple of the old timers and those people who would some day be the "new" old times. I stared taking my kids out there when they were at an age where I thought they would enjoy it. Though my dad has passed away, my kids and I still like to visit out there as we can.
As for "Little Nimrod" and his reply, I think he really needs to take another look it it. Sure Disneyland is neat, I like it too. I love the Materhorn and Space Mountian, I could ride them all day lang. To turn down a trip to D.V. because there's no micro waves, TV, or what ever . . . well I guess to each there own. The opportunity to learn some history, meet some people, and see the real world should never be turned down. Being there, seeing it, and doing it is the best teacher of all and you'll never learn about it in the class room or the "Mine Car Ride" at Disneyland.
