Atomic City is one strange place
We thought it might be fun to stop at the mini-mart/ice cream sundae/dessert/food/bar, but to be honest, I started getting a little freaked out by the place. What goes on in Atomic City? I saw a whole bunch of abandoned filing cabinets strewn for acres, which I immediately assumed came from one of the many high-security ultra secret massive fenced-off-in-every-direction-for-miles "testing facilities" (perhaps in error, though, honestly, I'm sure there's no where else they could have come from considering there's really no commerce or industry for 50 miles). There was not a single soul to be seen in Atomic City, yet the neon sign in the window of the mini mart said open. We were both too afraid to turn off the engine.
