Very nice. I wish I could go on a trip like that again. My trip was far more lonesome, I think. :)
Fastest I managed to get up to was 109mph, on US-50 going through the middle-of-nowhere Nevada, and I think it was going down a slight decline. It just wouldn't go any faster than that.
Go back to the early 1990's, and probably almost no zoos would have had meerkats. Yes, they're cute, but for some reason every zoo seems to be required to have them these days. And penguins. I can't figure out what the big deal is about penguins, but zoos always make a huge deal about having them.
There's all these penguin movies now! And as for meerkats, I put the blame squarely on the Lion King and Timon. A lot of zoos decided they'd be an easy add- and they are. The breed plenty fine, don't take up too much space, work fine indoors or outdoors.
And admittedly meerkats are cute li'l guys. There jsut should be more mongooses. :)
