We got the wood and it was loaded into the little trailer that Ken's brother, Don gave us before he made the move to TN. It didn't squat a bit under 1800 lbs of wood! Awesome! The man that loaded it with the forklift was shocked!
We had some clouds over the mountains and then saw some rainbows. Very nice.
|Rainbows in Gardnerville..|
Across the street to Walmart, Raleys for prescriptions, some gas and then it was 1300. So we had to visit Carson Valley Inn for a wonderful lunch. So good, no dinner was needed or wanted last night.
|Just some nice clouds on the way..|
We called it a night as we had set the alarm for 0400 so we could get out of here by 0600. We did pretty good, we left at 0615. It was still very dark outside and we found it to be really foggy! We don't get much of that around here, but when we do it's really thick. Between the dark and the fog we were pretty slow going but it eventually cleared and up came the sun.
|Low fog sitting in Silver Springs..|
|Traffic along I80..nice..|
|Light fog near the scales in Truckee..|
|So cold it looked like snow on the grass..more like pogonip|
We actually had a very nice drive over I 80 to Antelope, CA. We got to Russell's house close to 1030. He was outside doing some things and saw us coming. Got the Jeep unstrapped and backed the trailer up and got it into his garage pretty easily. He's a happy camper. Now if he can find time to work on it. Their basketball schedule with the boys is really crazy these next few months. Guess that's why God gives you kids while your young, because i know I couldn't keep up! We visited awhile and then headed out about 1215.
|Getting ready to unload..|
|It's in the garage..with room for Lori's car!|
|Can't bring home an empty trailer..so we're bringing Russell's quad.|
Needs some work, but hopefully can get it going..
We pulled into the rest area at Gold Run and ate the tuna sandwiches and chips I had brought. YUM..simple but good. Back on the road and we pulled into the driveway just a bit before 1630. Not a bad drive at all! Traffic was light which was surprising.
|Mountains that should be loaded with snow!|
|Usually these mountains are covered in snow this time of year..|
Drought again in CA..
|Squaw Valley ski area..|
Ken has the fire going in the wood stove and we've got tacos for dinner. I prepped all the stuff yesterday so just cook some shells and heat the beans..easy.
You all have a good night! :)
