Hello there !!

We are presently at Bob's cousin's place in Carson City, Nevada.
My laptop is not working and I'm having a fit about that.  We've had a good time so far, but he's getting upset at the gas prices.  We've found it up to $3.29 a gallon in California and his big truck only gets 10 miles to the gallon.  Plus the air conditioning in the truck is not working and if we go to Arizona as planned...it's very hot there.  So far we've been lucky.  We came thru snow in the mountains between Oregon & California.  Cool temps going over to eastern Calif.  My cousin lives in Lincoln, CA and we spent last Tuesday night with her.  And we missed seeing Robin & Gabby, tho and I'm sorry about that.  Hey Robin, that's a nice Wal Mart in Marysville...is that the one where you had the problem a few weeks back?
Bob skied (sp?) 2 days at Northstar ski resort up out of Truckee, CA.  Wow that place is la-te-da !!  Very beautiful resort and I took lots of pictures which I will post after I get home.   From there we went to Reno, NV.  I left about $30 there and decided, if I never go in a casino again it will be too soon.  Today we went up to Virginia City, NV and walked around there a couple hours.  I think we're going back again Monday, because we got there late in the afternoon and they roll up the sidewalks pretty early on Sunday.  
The weather here in Carson City is not really cold...about 65* but it's real windy tonight.  Bob's cousin has a big commercial building below their living quarters, so we've pulled the camper into that.  We have power and everything.  Quite a change from the last two nights in the parking lot at the Alantis Casino in Reno, where we were roughing it.
Well, his aunt has fixed some supper, so I'd better get off here and go eat.   More later...hope everyone is ok.
I sure miss my kitty.......................Linda

Hi Linda sounds like you are having quite an adventure, cant imagine anything nicer than travelling and seeing new places.  Tell Bob in Ontario, gas is currently $4.16 a gallon not to feel too bad, lol.  As I am an avid photographer I will be looking really forward to seeing your pics.  Take care and have a great trip.  God bless.

Good to hear from you, sounds as if you're having quite an adventure.  Beats going to work. Hah!  Sorry about the air conditioning but warm weather sounds great about now, it snowed around here somewhere last night, up by Everett I think.  What's with the laptop?  Should be able to stop by a Comp USA or something and have them help you.  Well off to the dentist.  Hope everything keeps going well.  Joni

It sounds fun Linda! I don't like gambling either, may as well give your money to the casino owners! Enjoy the rest of your trip! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/
