The REAL adventures of terapined

Thanks
Will look all that up and probably check those out
I move every Wednesday
Even though it's a bit of a pain to move, it's my favorite day of the week now.
I just love moving to a new area. Go on TripAdvisor and google to see what's around and plan my days activities
I simply love exploring places I have never been before
Going to the same casinos playing the same games over and over. Pretty boring if you ask me

The REAL adventures of terapined

Moving to a new area is like a box of chocolates
You never know what you will find
I love museums.
If people think something is worth looking at, then I want to see it
This got to be one of the weirder museums
Museum of Osteology
In OKC
It blew my socks off
All skeletons, just about every animal you can think of
Whale, horse, dogs cats, bears.
All skeletons,
Fascinating.
They have ethics
The whale was dead and beached for example
A lot are road kill
Some were pets

If you're looking for a dangerous time while playing slots, I have a casino for you. The Golden Pony in Okemah, Oklahoma. Step inside, and you'll swear you're visiting a sister to LV's The Western or the old Gold Spike, only not as classy. You sit down and expect Danny Trejo to come up behind you with a machete. The effect is heightened if you visit at night.

When I stopped in, I found it absolutely charming that the life-sized golden horse statue out front had a missing member. The statue had been anatomically correct, and now it was not. Somebody had broken off the horse's member.

Interesting place.

I just took a look at those places
Virginia , Tahoe , Incline village . I'll definitely check those out in a few days
Goldfield and Scottys closer to Vegas
Will keep those in mind when I get back to Vegas
After Reno
I'm in the Elko area for a week. Anything out there?
I'm not expecting much but then I wasn't expecting much in El Centro and instead found Slab city

If you are ever around Philadelphia, you need to check out the Mütter Museum.

Hmm
I lived in Philly back in the day
Went to Drexel
But
Never heard of this museum
Have to check it out.
Kind of into different things at that age
Is it related to those crazy new years celebrations in Philly?

Great report! Best in a long time by far!

It's nice to see someone who's just chronicling his adventures without constant bravado.

Nah, those crazy drunk New Years parade dancers are the mummers.

Itís a medical oddity museum, but that description doesnít do it justice. Search it on google or YouTube and you will see some cool stuff if you are into this type of thing.
