I found the rules for crossing Hoover Dam. http://www.usbr.gov/lc/hooverdam/crossingguide.pdf

I still think we are going to do it. My lab will be in the crate in the bed of the truck.. she will not be happy about it. Especially if they use a sniffing dog.

Greetings from Hoover Dam

There's a little bit more progress with each picture.. The inspection was very formal and once I opened the door to the trailer he walked through and then stepped out and said i can go .

He then gave his water bottle contents to our dog that was already well hydrated but gave him the sad lab eyes..

The bypass is amazing and the Hoover Dam is always a must see.
