This is going to be a quick post, since I'm writing from Bruno's Hotel in Gerlach, Nevada. I think the population here is about 75, and 90% of those people are a stone's throw from this room.As you may have read, my friends and I come here frequently, but not frequently enough to be locals. We are going to a friend's bar b que later if the weather eases up (it's gale force winds, thunder storms, and torrential rain right now). It has been a great day and a half.
You may have read yesterday's post about the last time we went to our 4th of July camping trip.
As I said, this camping trip has a long tradition behind it, so here are some photos from my previous excursion in 2008.
My first dog, Diva, was still with me and in prime form, as you will see. She was a mighty and wonderful friend, and I still miss her. We had many adventures. She is the dog in my tattoo, which our logo is based on.
For many years, my friends and I went camping to a desert in Northern Nevada on a moderately regular basis. Since Russ and I have been working, we haven't been able to enjoy this passtime very often and it has been sad.
This year, however, we're shaking off our soap shavings and heading out to the same desert with a couple of our friends.
Because these aren't your neighbor's travel slides, I figured I'd share them with you. Hopefully you'll enjoy them...
I've been going to that thing in the desert since 2001 and this is one of two years I've taken off... and the other time was so that I could go to the regional burn in Spain. This year, we're just not going. But that doesn't mean we don't desperately...
