Reno Pics

Great Salt Flats near Wendover

Reno Mission Accomplished

On the Road Home We stopped at the Truckee River

Roxanne was having Fun taking Pics of the Letters on the Mountains outside of the Little Nevada Towns, Then sending these to her Niece and Nephew, A Fun Game while we Drive Home...



Reno Trip with Mom and Roxanne

Mom (Burke is writing this) has not heard from her oldest Granddaughter Jennifer, Who might as well be Moms youngest Daughter, in over a year and a half,...Moms letters to her have been returned with no forwarding Address available,...Finally last Monday she got the Address where Jennifer is staying in Reno, NV. (From Jennifers Friends Mom) She was ready to go right then and told Dad lets go.... NOW!!!...Dad "We are not going until the Coach is ready for a long Road Trip"...Mom and I though maybe a Family member might want to do an Out and Back Road Trip?( I looked into renting a Car), Then Roxanne calls Weds and says she has some time off .. Lets go Friday Morning and Return ??? Mom and I never told Dad we are going cause He would only tell Mom NO, You CANNOT GO.... with no explanation...
Friday Morning Roxanne comes over around 09:00 and goes in the front Door to see and tell Dad we are going to Reno....OPPS, We never mentioned Dad had no Idea we ARE Going... He told Roxanne
“Mom can't go”!
Mom and I are Ready to go, We load the Car... Next Stop Salt Flats for some Pics, Wells for Fuel, Elko for Food, Fernley for Fuel, Check in at Sparks Motel around 5:00...We then head up the Hill to Knock on Jennifer's House about 5:30 (North Reno, Lemon Valley Area), Darrin Answers (Jennifer's roommate and best friend)...He Looked Shocked! We asked to see Jenn, He will be right back, After a few minutes He returned to say “Jenn is Crying, She can't see you now...Can you come back Tomorrow?” Yes We can “09:00 or 10:00?” OK, We will be back at 10:00 am.. We then took the 395 South all way thru Reno to Washoe Valley, There is a new Freeway and a BIG, Beautiful Bridge,..Very Nice!! We also stopped at and Quickly left the Peppermill Casino, This is the only time We spent being Tourists....The next day we are back up at Jennifer's House right at 10:00 am...Only Mom went to the Door and knocked Hard....No answer, She tries again, Still no luck,. Mom has a check (Proceeds from Land in Fountain Green that came from Moms Dad), This is a Legacy and would have went to Larinda, All us Kids got one (Thanks MOM!!) Her and Roxanne slip a letter and the Check under the Front
Door .....We are outta Here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Next Stop Truckee river for more Pics, Next Fuel and Starbucks in Fernley...The rest of the drive back was sooo nice, Even though it rained almost the whole time ,Roxanne wanted and did take Pictures of the Local Town Letters on the Mountains...FUN and Funny!!! We also Stopped a 2nd time at Costa Vida in Elko for Lunch where we met “Kenny” The founder of This Restaurant Chain...We arrived back in SLC about 9:00 PM (Roxanne still had to drive to Utah County) Thank You Mom and Roxanne for a VERY Pleasant Trip …...We never seen Jennifer BUT did meet our Goal...OUT AND BACK Delivery
