Yesterday morning after a breakfast of scrambled eggs with mushrooms and cheese we headed out towards Reno. Nice drive along highway 395/580 and into town. You can surely see the signs of growing in that city. 3 story apartments going up everywhere there's any room. More shopping centers being built. In an area called Cold Springs they are planning on building a 5000 unit development of homes and apartments. They are holding meetings to let the citizens "voice" their opinions. None are happy about this development but you know the council will pass it anyway. Last night on the local news they actually did a survey asking if people were in favor of the growth that's happening and overwhelmingly the poll said that over 75% of people were not happy! So glad we don't live there!
Anyway..in Reno we headed for Sears to do a little shopping. Turns out they don't open till 1100! Ok, over to Safari RV. When we bought the Jayco the showerhead is nice but it doesn't have the button to slow the water to a drip so that you either let the shower run until your done with your shower, or you turn it off and then have to redo the water temp..either way a real water waster! Safari had exactly what we were looking for, not cheap but we got it!
Back to Sears and walked out with nothing. I am one of those people that like simple clothes. Give me a t shirt in a bunch of colors and I'm happy..well not at Sears i'm not. So JC Penneys...nothing..finally said we're done. I'll try the old stand by of Walmart. We headed for Sams and got a few things. By then time for lunch so we headed for our favorite Chinese place in Carson City and stuffed ourselves. Dropped the goodies at the trailer and then to Lowe's for a few things Ken wanted.
Back to the trailer for the evening. Well, late afternoon. We watched the news (again I don't know why). Dinner was leftovers so that was easy. Some chit chat..a call from our oldest son, Bryan and eventually called it a night.
This morning (Thursday) we've got a 0930 appointment for the Tundra and then we've got time to kill until Ken's appointment in Gardnerville at 1440 for his clearance after his surgery (YAY).
If all goes as planned we'll be on the road Monday morning! Woohoo!!
I forgot to mention that yesterday was 8 years ago that we both retired from working for a living. Best decision we've ever made, nothing better than this life (as I know a lot of you who read this know too!)...
Have a wonderful day!!
