First stop today - Cadlillac Ranch - Roadside America at its finest. This is right up there with, with... well National Geographic lists it as one of its Top Ten Roadside Attractions. And you know National Geographic is not going to stake its reputation on just some average roadside kitsch. Andy and Marcus must be kicking themselves right now as they read about what they missed.
