Day 5: Started the morning returning the hire car and then headed to Klamath Falls. It was a nice drive through some areas we didn't except. We arrived in Klamath Falls @ 3.30pm The area surrounding the RV Park was questionable but the park is very nice. We took a small walk this afternoon along the bikeway that ran along a fast flowing creek to the shopping centre were we looked at place to have dinner later. We later returned for pizza then went back to the RV for the night to relax.

Jul 28, 2014 - Hot August Nights - Reno Nevada

Hot August Nights is another car show event (in Reno, Nevada), but on major levels (it is the largest in the United States)it ran from July 28th thru Aug.2nd this year. The show takes place at several venues up & down Virginia Ave (aka Hwy 395). Pete & I took in only one of the shows but managed to spend about 1 1/2 hours walking around, talk about walking down memory lane ! There is also musical entertainment to enjoy. I would go back & do it again, next time to take in more venues.

Jun 24, 2014 - Grand Sierra Resort, Reno, NV

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,...

Well Jim and Diane arrived Thursday night, after driving 700 miles that day. On Friday we went to see Virginia City, how disappointing Hoss or Little Joe were not there!!!.

On Sat we went to an old manison on Lake Tahoe was interesting to see out the well to do lived in the early 1900's must have been some time of life. Well the next stop is Yosemite, will up date...

May 17, 2014 - Reno, NV 2

Saturday, May 17, 2014 I had breakfast out this morning by myself as no one else wanted to go; and it was a good one. Jim and I went to a local RV parts store to pick up some supplies and the girls went shopping at T.J. Maxx. We then had lunch in our rigs and drove out to the Endemano’s home. After a nice visit with Eddie and Dee, we toured their property including Dee’s raised vegetable garden. They live north of Sparks, NV on an acre of land. It was good to see them. We then drove to downtown Reno (the biggest little city in the world)...
