Reno, NV High 59 Low 38
I forgot to tell you about our excitement the day we arrived here in Reno. Jim was cutting up treats for the girls with tin snips and proceeded to almost cut the tip of his finger off. I wrapped a Band-Aid around it very tightly but after two hours it was still bleeding profusely. Found an urgent care not too far away. They cleaned out the cut and determined he didn’t need stitches. They glued some steri-strips on it and because of his diabetes, put him on a five day dose of antibiotics. It’s looking pretty good now. Still sore if he bumps it but healing.
Also wanted to share this picture with you. We came over Lost Trail Pass about two weeks ago. This is what it looked like today. Sure am glad we didn’t wait any longer to head south.
Now back to the Reno area.
Street Vibrations is a celebration of music, metal and motorcycles. They are expecting over 30,000 bikers and have several stages set up for entertainment and major events are planned at Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Virginia City, and Lake Tahoe.
I understand they had some problems a couple of years ago between the Hells Angels and the Vagos gangs which would explain this sign on our laundromat door here in the park.
Lots of toyhaulers pulled into the RV park yesterday and the park is almost full. Rather noisy now with all the bikes. This is one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. Very well maintained. Friendly staff.
Huge wonderful dog walks. But those dog walks scare Skittlez to death. Even when there aren’t any other dogs in them. Not sure if she is overwhelmed with all the smells but she refuses to do what she’s there for. All of the sites have fake grass and they really don’t want dogs peeing on it. We try hard to avoid that issue.
That means we have to do something with Skitz. We do have a couple of pads in the house but she doesn’t like to use them either. However, there is a park not far from us that allows dogs on leashes so we make several trips a day to the park. The girls love it.
Sparks Marina Park

This sign made Jim unhappy.
Male ducks doing their thing when there’s a female around.
There are a few sailboats at the marina. They also use this lake to practice scuba diving. They sunk an airplane in it for divers to explore.
