Travel day to Sparks Nevada

Our last update was Friday the 23rd, our travel day to Hawthorne Nevada and there isn’t much to report on for Saturday the 24th. It was a simple day around camp with a couple nice long walks with jack out behind the RV Park.

===============================================================

Sunday 5/24 was a travel day. Not a long one but that was nice, we had only 130 miles to drive and 95% was out in the open country on highway 95. Not a lot to see but peaceful.

When leaving Hawthorne we did notice a few areas where a person could dry camp for a few nights along the lake. We will keep those areas in mind in case we pass through the area again. They were within the first 20 miles north of town.

Pretty mush what we saw on our journey from Hawthorne to Sparks.

Our new home for a week is at Sparks Marina RV Park in Sparks Nevada. We have been to the Reno / Sparks area numerous times on either motorcycle rides t Street Vibrations or for work purposes over the years. In fact back in the day I used to come to Reno every month for meetings. That long stretch broke me of the novelty of gambling LOL!!

The first thing we have planned is to just get through the holiday weekend and let the crowd dwindle down before we venture off to far. In fact it is Monday now and I have already seen a few rigs taking off. Should we be ashamed for taking pleasure in such a thing LOL!!

Our spot in Sparks Nevada for a few days. OH, that's not real grass, it fake turf but much better than dirt.

There is a nice park like setting right by the RV Park with a marina where I’m sure we will be spending some time lounging around in the grass with Jack this week. The temps are supposed to be around 80 so it will be perfect for that.

Did I ever show the plaque we had made?

And I’m sure we will go into Reno to walk the strip just for old time sakes. But the last couple of times we visited Reno the town seemed to be drying up and getting run down with casino’s closing their doors. It was rather sad to see because of all the really great times we have had there over the years.

On a parting note let me just say one thing, Round Abouts are the dumbest thing ever designed to be used on roadways. Just plain stupid if you ask me. There,, that’s out LOL!!!

Less than one week and we will be back in the Grants Pass area!! Can you tell we are starting to get a little excited about that?
