Marie and I have been wanting to get out of town for quite a while,
so we loaded up the bike and headed to Reno. Reno is only a little over 220 miles away, so it's just one tank of gas.
We hit Hwy 80, not one of my favorite roads, in Valejo then on to Sacramento. Hwy 80 over the Sierras is beautiful, but challenging riding.
We made reservations at the Silver Legacy Hotel. What a bargain, $59 bucks for a nice room and some coupons for meals and drinks that saved quite a bit of cash. We played a few machines, wined and dined and generally relaxed.
The next day after a good breakfast we went to Boomtown to check out the new Cabella's store. We topped off the tank and headed back over the mountains.
We'll be doing this trip again
