    Okay, here's a challenge for a list member living in or visiting
    southern Nevada or northern Arizona.  Drive out to Hoover Dam.  The
    Arizona/Nevada border runs right down the middle of the Colorado river.
      The two states are in different time zones (Pacific for Nevada,
    Mountain for Arizona).  Plus Arizona does not observe Daylight time.
    (The time zone difference is uniquely emphasized by clocks at either end
    of the dam showing local time.)
    US highway 93 runs right across the top of the dam.  It would be an
    interesting experiment to track cell phone time display whilst driving
    across the dam...
