My last entry reminded me that I had to point you all to http://www.giantlavalamp.com/.  Before we got to the wine Gretchen and I completed this road trip. On the way you pass by the third world Town of Soap Lake WA .  Ignore the description from the road trip or state tourism notes.  Once in soap lake you’ll find an RV parking site, rednecks, a glorified pond, rednecks hanging out at the gas station, some sort of nasty gnats at the waters edge, rednecks bathing in the mud, and water that your dog will turn his nose at.  The Indians once believed in the healing powers of the lake, however, you’ll see that even the Indians gave that up a long time ago.  Bestowed upon one run down three story building you’ll see an image of the center of town replete with its own 65ft lava lamp.  Speaking to the locals at the gas station revealed that they sincerely believe it will increase tourism and usher in a new wave of success to their community.  As soon as they offer up a chance to have your name enshrined on the side of this giant lava lamp for a small donation I’ll be first in line.
