It's just that we have few Asian tourists here. I mean, if you go to Las Vegas around Christmas, it's jam packed with Asians, but here, even at peak tourist times, there are few Asian tourists. So it was surprising to seen bus loads and car loads full of them. I know that there are many many wealthy Chinese, but this isn't a place that wealthy people think to come.

Also in the above pics, the Toyota FJ did not pull out the RV. It was a crazy notion anyway. the FJ is so much lighter than the cruiser. But, you can't tell men these things, you have to let them convince themselves. But -- physics, folks.
