We usually make the drive between Eugene and Reno a two day drive, but this time we just wanted to get here and have time to relax before Dave has his "basal cell" carcinoma surgery. We both have a few housekeeping items to do.
The 440 mile drive was great and uneventful, but it did involve two driver switches. Dave started us out by driving up the mountain hwy 58 and then south to Klamath Falls where Rebecca took over. Dave took over for the last 90 miles, bringing us through drive time traffic and into the casino. A little over 9 hours, including a 30 minute lunch and two road work stops of a few minutes each.
We come to Reno this week not knowing it is rodeo week. The Reno rodeo is billed as the "wildest and richest rodeo". If you like watching the PBR and such on tv, we suggests you come to Reno. Here you get all the categories of rodeo action, such as barrel racing, calf roping, as well as the bulls and broncs! Best of all the tickets are inexpensive compared to Las Vegas and the staying cheaper with about 5 good RV parks in town.
