I'm not going anywhere really exotic. No Hawaii, no Bahamas, not even Southern California. But we are going to Reno.
Now, often when I say Reno, people think this:
But for us, Reno is this:
Hot August Nights
If you've never heard of it, it's a HUGE classic car show
that takes over the city for a full week.
Every parking lot of every hotel is lined with classic cars.
Parades of cars, show & shines.
Hubs is in heaven when he's there.
Oooh, and last time we saw Fonzie, Ralph and Potsie
(If you have to ask who they are, I'm too old to be talking to you)
Virginia MountainsAnd most importantly, family we haven't seen in two years.
We'll be doing a road trip with the boy and the dog. Instead of driving straight through, we'll be visiting Klamath Falls, Oregon for a night, and taking a side tour past Crater Lake.
Then we'll arrive in Reno in time to take in the last weekend of the car shows, and then have a week to have fun. The strapping young lad is going to work with my dad and step-brother for the week. They own a paving company and are putting my kid to work. I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be good for him to find out what real physical labor is all about.
Any summer travel plans for you? Exotic vacation? Camping? A little Staycation?
