The Start of Our September, 2015 Road Trip

Duke and I left Reno this morning on the start of a grand adventure. There’s not much to report today but I’m going to try to blog every day. We didn’t bring a laptop, just my iPad. I am learning to use Blogsy. We will see how this goes!
We have a five week Road trip planned. We will go through Glacier National Park into Canada, then across Canada to Lake of the Woods to do some fishing, then back into the U.S. To Minneapolis and down to Manchester, Iowa where we will attend Duke's 45th High School Reunion. From there we will head down the Mississippi and back across the southwest to Home to Reno. Today was the long drive across Nevada to the town of Jackpot on the Idaho border. We stayed here a few weeks ago at the beginning of our camping trip.

The highlight of the trip Today was watching all the people and their paraphernalia heading to Burning Man which started today. Black Rock City the camp in the Black Rock Desert that is Burning Man will be the third largest City in Navada this week! All the way along our route we saw lots of people heading to Burning Man. Fernley is the town where the Burners get off Interstate 80 and head north into the desert. When we stopped for fuel It was a zoo and lots of fun to people watch.
