Jun 10, 2013 - Reno,Nevada

Dear Diary! The next state was Reno in Nevada! Reno knows as "The Biggest Little City in the World". Reno is famous for its casinos. Reno is the fourth largest city in the U.S. state of Nevada. The city sits in a high desert valley at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. The highest building of Reno is the "Silver Legacy hotel and casino". The hotel is 125 metres tall and have 38 floors. First we looked after the casinos and shops. Later we went to the National Automobile Museum. Inside there are more than 100 cars.

Jun 7, 2013 - Reno, NV

June 6, 2013- Reno, Nevada After much discussion last night, we decided to forego going to Yellowstone NP for various reasons: (1) we had been unable to get a spot on the RV park in Yellowstone itself. After our experience in Yosemite, where it was 5 miles to the entrance of the park and then another 25 miles of twisty-turney roads just to get to the Valley and at least 30-40 miles to get anywhere else in the park, we wanted to stay inside the park but had not booked far enough in advance. We could have stayed outside the park for $64.00...

May 31, 2013 - National Automobile Museum - Reno

We visited the National Automobile Museum located in the Reno with Evelyn and Ernie. It was amazing! The displays were great and the layout was very good. The galleries are positioned so you would progress thru the years in order. It was fun seeing things as they happened in time. Not much more to say but please enjoy the pictures. We are very happy we decided to go there. Until the next time ........ Have fun and stay safe. God Bless Ken and Fran

May 27, 2013 - Reno, Nevada

After Leaving our rest stop, we stopped at the Historic Martin Hotel and Restaurant for lunch Winnemucca, Nevada. This is a Basque Restaurant, Reggi had Lamb Shanks and i had Beef Tongue (my first), it was good, the texture is different. Martin Hotel - Sometime between 1898 and 1908 Alfonso Pasquale opened the Roman Tavern and Restaurant here. In 1913 Augustine A. Martin and Elisee Henri Martin, both of France, acquired this building and the business was named The Martin Hotel. They catered to the sheepmen and cattlemen. Although they were...

May 21, 2013 - Past Mammoth to Reno

The area north of Bishop and close to Mammoth Mountains is called Long Valley. About 760,000 yrs ago the Long Valley Caldera was created by a blast 2,500 times bigger than Mount St. Helens. The eruption deposited ash as far east as Nebraska. It created a huge oval shaped depression (caldera) 20 miles long by 10 miles wide. Hot springs, fumaroles and mud pots also attest to a geologically active area (like Yellowstone National Park). The Sierra Nevada mountain range to our left with sharp peaks and this valley we are traveling in was formed...

May 19, 2013 - USBC Women's Championships in Reno

Just a short note regarding the USBC Women's Championships that Fran bowled in May. On May the 18th the teams bowled and Fran was looking for a sub for one of her teams and guess who she found!!!! Wendy Macpherson !!! The pro-bowler! We had met Wendy a few years back and she was in town bowling in the USBC Open Championship and she was happy to help Fran out. Both teams was excited to be able to bowl with Wendy. The guys always watch the women bowl but this time I think they really hung around for Wendy. On a sad note, one of the bowlers...

May 14, 2013 - Lake Almanor, CA to Reno, NV

We left today and went as far as Reno, for an 8:15am appointment to have the A/C on the trailer fixed and have the wheel bearings packed. The RV repair place suggested we stay in the parking lot of Baldini's Casino, since it was only about a mile from them. It was really windy but we didn't care; we weren't BBQ-ing tonight or eating outside. We left the trailer there and went to the Atlantis so I could have my raw oysters and Dave could have his clam chowder-bread bowl. We gambled a little at Baldini's; I lost $40 and Dave won $10. We were...

Apr 18, 2013 - Santa Rosa & Napa Valley

We started our day at the Santa Rosa Visitors Center, where they suggested we take two loop drives, the first took us through what were described as mom and pop operations then out to the Pacific Ocean coast and back to Santa Rosa. The other would take us through Napa Valley. Our first stop was Ferrari- Carano, which as you can tell from the pictures is a pretty successful mom and pop. Jean picked up her first bottle, and declared this was going to be a very good day. Our second stop was Raymond Burr’s, very neat place, but she didn’t find...

Apr 16, 2013 - Reno, NV

Monday morning the winds seemed to calm down a bit so we headed North for Reno, NV. Our thought was to stay east of the mountains hoping to avoid some of the very high wind warnings. We decided not to revisit Sequoia, Yosemite, or Lake Tahoe, primarily because the passes were closed, due to snow and wind. Our plan worked at least partially; we avoided the really high winds, predicted to be 85 mph in some of the canyons, but we did buck some serious head winds all day. Gas mileage was about 7 mpg and we had no trouble staying under the 55...

Apr 5, 2013 - Lincoln to Chester to Reno

Okay, okay. I'm fine and safe and enjoying every day! I spent two days with my dear friends Jo and Wayne in Lincoln, about 20 miles northwest of Sacramento, playing lots of Scrabble. Not quite enough, however, as I left paying Wayne $.78. It's much more fun when I take his money. They are wonderful hosts and Hunter and I had a fabulous time playing with them and their two dogs, and one of Jo's friends who joined us for games in the afternoons. From Lincoln I headed north up Hwy 99, took a right in Red Bluff onto Hwy 36 then spent the night...

Apr 4, 2013 - Two Marathon Days

After sleeping in and getting some household chores done we were downtown by 11:30. I dropped Mary off at Harrah's then I continued on walking through most all of the casino downtown in my quest of collecting casino club cards for the collage I plan to make someday. I wish I had started collecting when we first started out because I would have had quite a collection by now. Besides adding to my card collection I got a few free plays on the slot machines, a slot tournament and a free buffet dinner at the Silver Legacy Casino. After dinner...
