    I have used that site for a few years. It has some interesting stuff for sure!
    The pictures and descriptions are a good read when planning a trip.

      Roadside America is a great sight that I have used many times over the years.  And I'm not just saying that because they feature the space ship in my hometown!

            That book is how I got to sit on top of a giant jack rabbit and take a picture of the Cadillac Ranch. 
            It gives you places to stop when you're driving through a lot of nothing.

                It sure sounds like fun, but how is their New Year's Eve celebration?

                    They are not known for their New Year's Eve celebrations, but they do have "Night of Destruction" - usually on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  What better night to get the family together for a little redneck fun?  They do Figure-8 School Bus Race, Ghetto Trailers and then Demolition Derby.  Good, wholesome, family fun...and great for people watching.

                          I got talked into driving in a ghetto trailer figure 8 race about 6 years ago.  For being a redneck sport it was actually quite fun.  The sensation of feeling someone plow through the trailer you are pulling behind you can not be described.
                           
                          It was all fun and games until the tow bar was pushed thru the axle and I ended up on my side and what was left of the trailer on top of the whole mess.
                           
                          Needless to say I have NO trophy for the event!!  I did take home some cuts, scrapes and bruises though!
