Hello from Nevada. We arrived at the home of Bob's 90 year old aunt & his two "boy" cousins yesterday afternoon. We got to Reno Sunday evening after planning to stay in Lincoln, CA with my cousin. When I called her, she informed me she was over in Reno skiing with a friend of hers and to come on over. So we checked into the RV Park at the Sierra Grand and Monday morning headed up to Mt Rose Ski Resort. It's at about 8,000 feet above Reno. The hills all around Reno are covered with snow, the sky was blue and of course there was lots of snow on the mountain. It was absolutely breath taking !!! Yes, I took some pictures. The three skiers wore each other out on the slopes, while I went back & forth between the camper and the outside deck of the lodge. It was a very relaxing day. And before we left the parking lot, my cousin Susie showed me how to "cast on" so I could begin knitting. Although I have since gone to Wal Mart and bought some fatter needles and bigger yarn at her suggestion. Bob & I headed back to the RV park and plugged in and watched TV for awhile, although he was exhausted, he's not used to skiing at that elevation in Washington. Tuesday after we checked out we went to Sparks to the J.C. Penney Outlet store. I got some really nice Reebok's for $22 and some other odds & end. Then we headed south to Carson City, where we are now,
We have seen lots of snow all along the way but the roads have been clear and dry. The hills around this desert area are covered in snow, with the blue sky, behind...oh my gosh...just breath taking !
What happened Saturday evening, was we went as far as Canyonville, OR to the Seven Feathers Casino Resort. Bob's brother & sister in law were caravaning with us (they were headed straight to Las Vegas) and they had a room reserved there and we just parked in the back of the parking lot for the night. We all went into eat dinner and on the way out Bob was first in line to pay. He handed the cashier his credit card and she asked for ID, so he gave her his driver's license and she processed his charge, had him sign the slip and handed him his receipt and card. But apparently not his drivers license. When we went in there the next morning for breakfast, he again handed her the credit card & the cashier asked for ID and he went thru his whole wallet and that's when he discovered his drivers license was missing. We went to Security at the Casino and talked with them, they looked all thru their lost and found and nothing....they had him fill out a lost and found slip and said they would call if they found it but so far nothing! He always drives carefully anyway when he's driving the big truck and camper, so is not concerned about getting stopped. But it's sort of un-nerving wondering if someone is out there using his license for something fraudulent. He does know his drivers license number by heart, so we wrote it down on a piece of paper and put it with his insurance information and he also has his passport along for the cruise on March. So that's a good source of picture ID.
My cousin is still in the area and is coming pretty soon with her niece (my other cousin's daughter) and picking me up and we're going to lunch. So while Bob and his "boy" cousins are solving the problems of the world, I'll be off with the girls for the afternoon.
When I left home I had 42 emails, when I logged on here on Ian's computer, there were 257 emails. So I may not get to all or any of your journals. I hope everyone is well.....and I'll keep in touch as I can. Have not found anyplace to use my laptop as yet, so have been suffering "internet withdrawals." LOL
Until next time.....Linda from Nevada By the way I've put $10 into different slot machines with NO return, so I'm done with those things !
