Larry & Betty Fulfilling Our Dreams travel blog






We had a great time up in Virginia City..always enjoy.

Last local camping, with Greg and Ginny, before heading out May 15th for the Oregon coast and more before returning in mid-August.

Weather turned South late Thursday with rain and colder temps but the other days were very nice.

Saturday, good weather early, we did view the Fourth Annual Police Memorial Week Parade and what we thought might only be 10 min. turned out to be close to an hour of cool older police, fire and ambulance vehicles and motor cycles. Participant vehicles from CA, Winnemucca and Vegas and every place in between make it an annual event.

"The 2012 parade brought more than 100 entrants from both Nevada and California including bagpipers, color guards and honor guards, motors, in-service vehicles, and even mounted officers. Vintage restored police vehicles were included as the museum holds their Comstock Restored Emergency Vehicle Show on the same day and show participants also parade along with local docents dressed in period western lawman outfits. The parade follows a plan of moving through time and tradition of law enforcement as the visitor lined main street is filled with cops of past and present."

Check back as we will have updates on our stays on the next leg in our Journey.
