When I was a kid, my parents got me an educational toy made by Texas Instruments called Voyager. It was a headset that had these cartridges you’d plug into it and it would talk to you and you’d play games with it and it would recognize your voice as you played along. Simple “yes” and “no” stuff, but now that I think about it, Voyager probably had a big impact on my curious nature. One of the cartridges was focused on United States landmarks. You can see where I’m going with this. Take it away, Texas Instruments Voyager!

Don’t disturb that survey mark, or it’ll be 250 dollars, fella!

I guess that covers it pretty well, huh? Anyway, maybe in my mind I’m trying to visit all the spots Voyager told me about. Hoover Dam – check.
