A Night in the Anza Borrego

Back to Basics

I have spent the time after returning from Las Vegas planning one of my own field herping adventures. I visited the Las Vegas Reptile Expo as you may know to cover it for this site. While my son Austin and I were inLas Vegas we had the opportunity to go out and do some field herping with a local and three other guests of the expo. To say it would turn out to be a night to remember is an understatement.

After another exhaustive two hour search we finally pulled into the Motel 6 and no, Tom Bodett did not leave the light on for us. We checked into a room with no internet access and discovered that we had a roommate as well. We immediately named him Pepe and allowed him to stay in the bathroom. He wasn’t looking so well after all. We suspect that he was the victim of alcohol but we will never know for sure as when we returned from the show later on Saturday Pepe had left the room. We suspected kidnapping but have no grounds to prove anything. By the way did we mention Pepe was a roach?
