When I last posted, I wasn't sure what was next. Well, I think Joel was having a little separation anxiety and wanted to get back to Sparks and get back in the Beaver so we made a B-line for Reno. We left Tucson on Thursday and made it to Boulder Beach, Nevada the first night, and then to Sparks/Reno on Friday. We stayed at the Nugget Casino for two nights and then headed up to Boca campground near Truckee, California for the night and then to Portola to drop of my Born Free. On Monday, Joel drove back to Sparks pulled the Beaver out of storage and headed for Baldini's Casino for a couple of nights and I stayed in Portola to winterize and clean the Born Free. I was glad to get into the Sparks Marina RV park on Friday. Baldini's is really noisy.
So not much has been happening. We did wander over to the new Legends Mall in Sparks where they were having a Splash Dog competition. What fun!
Below, is one of the interesting sculptures in the outdoor mall.
Baldini's has now tightened up their RV parking and limited it to Player's Club members and only one night is allowed unless you get your permit extended. The City of Sparks is enforcing their "no overnight camping" ordinance unless you are in an RV park.
Fall is my favorite time of year in the Reno area and I talked Joel into driving the short distance over to Lake Tahoe and were treated with some spectacular scenery.
We started working at Amazon two weeks ago and are already counting down the weeks. Joel is working in stowing (putting product in bins) and I am working in picking (picking the products from the bins and putting it in totes to go to the packing department). The days are long, 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. but they go really fast. The warehouse is huge, and unlike last year I am working different "mod" (areas) and I must walk 10-15 miles a day...at least my feet feel like it at the end of the shift.
Well, that's about it for now.
