Prostitution is legal in the US only in certain counties of Nevada. It is illegal in the two most populous counties even here though - Washoe (Reno) and Clark (Las Vegas). In 12 of the other counties, prostitution is operated quietly under the watchful eye of the community. The more lenient viewpoint towards the world's oldest profession arises out of the mining traditions of the State. Of course, that does not mean prostitution does not exist in Vegas or Reno either - just look at the over 100 pages of ads in the Las Vegas telephone book for 'Escort Services' - only that it is not as obvious as say Pahrump ('A hundred dollars Pahrump!') or here, along US 95 just south of Goldfield. The Cottontail Ranch is for sale if you are interested. Complete with its own airstrip. http:www.bordelforsale.comRelated to:

Whatever you do, please dont...
Whatever you do, please dont jump! Very high suicide rate when it comes to Hoover Dam. OH and dont let them lie to you about the history of the dam. People were buried there. Take the hard hat tour and the river rafting tour. Great place to visit. And hit up Lake Mead. Always a dead hooker or two showing up there. I wonder what Jimmy Hoffa is doing?!
Tips on tipping: Because Vegas...
Tips on tipping: Because Vegas is a service-based city, tipping is a big, big deal. Just ask the IRS. You may not be sure how much to tip and when, so here's a quick rundown.
Bellmen: They usually receive $1 a bag, but an extra tip is suggested if you ask them to make show reservations or if they help you with taxis, etc.
Valet parketing attendants: We suggest $1 to $2 for valet parking attendants and for maid service each day.
Cocktail waitresses: About $2 per round is sufficient for a small group (two to three people). Increase it for larger groups. Don't fail to tip, even if your drinks are comped.
These are just suggestions -- you're always welcome to tip more!

Dumb Nevada Laws
It's still 'legal' to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property.
It is illegal to drive a camel on the highway.
An ordinance makes bringing a concealable fire arm into the county illegal unless it is registered with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. In order to register a handgun, however, it must be brought in to the police station. Furthermore, you may not register a gun on the weekends, but the police may prosecute you at that time.
Everyone walking the streets is required to wear a mask.
Men who wear moustaches are forbidden from kissing women.
A man is forbidden from buying drinks for more than three people other than himself at any one period during the day.
If you're prejudiced, watch...
If you're prejudiced, watch yourself. People there are very open minded. If you're opinionated or egotistical, watch your attitude. They don't mind an opinion, but don't push. People from all walks of life live in Nevada and visit. Just be friendly and see how the other people interact. Also, don't be afraid to ask for directions. You don't want to end up on the wrong side of Vegas. Trust me!
The Mojave Desert is home to the Joshua tree. I took this picture not too far from Beatty on highway 95. While I was at the gas station, a group of young motorcyclists from Oregon were stopped working on one of their bikes. The one man said, "I just love the desert. I started getting all misty-eyed when I saw the Joshua trees." He wasn't from Nevada, but I figure a lot of people have the same thoughts. The desert can be lovely.
This tree has to be old because... it's huge. Quite a few are tiny, and have only one stalk.Related to:
