Well, we didn't really have stop in Nevada, but the bus went through and left its mark. We were there for the weekend so we stopped at a few casinos. Good times. I didn't really spend much the first night at a place called Wendover, NV, right across the boarder from Utah. It just had a few good sized casinos. Played a bit of craps and a few slots. to my disappointment, none of the casinos had a sportsbook where you could bet on soccer or tennis. Boo! So I reverted to internet gambling.

We then drove through Nevada, real boring in some parts, cool mountains in others. Our destination was the Biggest Little City in the Word, Reno. It was better than I expected, pretty much a scaled down Vegas. I spent a lot of money. Lost big on craps and roulette, but did good on the slots. Got lots of free drinks and I got to watch the Australian Open final, a very good match, but my bets (again just online) did not come through. I probably was about $100 dollars down, maybe more, and all of sudden it was 4:00 am. I kept going on one slot machine which seemed to be doing well for me. I had $300 in my pocket and was ready to go when I decided to stick with my machine. Good idea? Usually not.
$100 goes pretty quick in $1 slots, especially when you always double or triple the bet. Yeah, so I was down to about 20 0f the hundred when I hit big, or at least big for me
Triple Bar/Triple Bar/Super x5 Star. Yeah, so that was a $60 win times five. Nice.
So all and all I made some money and left with 5 bills in my pocket. A pretty good feeling.

Yeah, so that was Nevada. Now, like Biggie "I'm going, going back, back to Cali, Cali" except I've never been to Cali before. I have been looking forward to this all trip. And our entrance to Cali, not at all what I expected. Cold, snowy horrible weather. We had to put chains on or tires, which in the cold snow is one of the least fun things I have ever had to do in my life. Yeah, the Seirra Nevadas were pretty nasty. It took us about 5 hours to do 30 miles. Man. But we made it. Is the rest of California ready for us?
We shall see.
