Hi there everyone,
We came to Reno Nevada this Memorial day weekend to hook up with Karen and Mike who are on their final leg of their 'Southern Safari' which has taken them all the way to Key West Florida. They embarked on the trip in February and have seen some wonderful sights of this great nation of ours during their travels. Check out their blog at http://www.oursouthernsafari.blogspot.com/
On Saturday, we went around the Reno and Sparks area looking for a few RV parts, having lunch and then taking the dogs to a local dog park. This was a great dog park in that one side of it was boardered by a lake. Guiness and Rosie had an absolute blast running and playing. Though Lilly and Nigel were active, they were more subdued due to their more 'Senior' status. In the afternoon, we snuck in a nap for a little bit. We caped off Saturday with the first 'Home cooked' meal that Karen and Mike have had since February where we had them over for dinner which consisted of Lasangna and other tasty stuff. Carol, as always is the consumate hostest with the mostest!
On Sunday, we made the trek down to Caron City to walk around inside the Rail Road museum. Though this is a smaller museum than the Rail Road Museum in Sacramento, the restoration work that they have done here is fabulous. It really gives you a sence of how our nation was built by the rail roads.
After we finished checking out the rail road museum, we drove to Virginia City for lunch and to do some window shopping. It is amazing that in late May we could find our selves in a snow storm, but we did. Virginia City is a cool little town that survives only on the tourist trade. Except for cars being on the streets, it is very much like the town of Columbia in California where you step back into time.
Saturday was caped off with a tasty dinner at a resturant called 'Brew Brothers'. The food was excellent, the service by Shad, was lousy. We haven't felt like we were putting someone out in such a very long time. Oh well. None the less, we had a wonderful dinner together.
Despite all of the good times we have had this weekend, we have not lost sight of the fact that many of the things we enjoy, we do so because of the sacrafices our service Men and Women have made since our great country was founded. We salute each and every one of you who have served our contry with honor. THANK YOU!
Happy camping! Eric and Carol Anderson
