There's really not much to say about Reno, so this will be a very short entry.
We literally just spent a night in Reno with no purpose except to sleep in a bed for the night en route to Oregon.

Our meals will get better as the trip progresses), took Roxie for a few long walks (this park has 3 mini dog parks) and enjoyed the evening with Pam and Bill under a beautiful starry sky. What a wonderful way to start a vacation. Cheers ...
