Internet

7:38am:
Our T-Mobile plan gives us 51gb of unlimited data. When we exceed that 51 gigs, our data speed goes way down. At times, so far down that it's almost impossible to browse or do email.

However, if we are in a location where there is little data usage by others, our data speed goes all the way up to high speed.




7:55am:
Reno
The Scampy Team is heading north this morning bound for the City of Reno Nevada. We believe that a 24 Hour Fitness Club is located in Reno! 😎


11:23am:
24 Hour Fitness
I've just returned from working out. Not a bad club. Of course, not even close to the 24 Hour Fitness-Balboa Club in San Diego. The Balboa 24 Hour is the best Club I ever used.

1:56pm:
Haircut Time
It appears as though I may traveling thru small towns where there may not be too many haircut salons.

So, I'm getting my hair cut here in Reno where there are many salons.


3:02pm:
Which way to go?
I am looking at a map in order to decide how to proceed out of Reno tomorrow. Our destination on this trip is Riggins Idaho and the Main Salmon River which flows nearby Riggins.

Going on I-80 will take us thru mostly the desert of Nevada. Going on US 395 takes us into California and mostly forest areas.

We like US 395 with forest areas!

    1. Hi Larry,

      You are very perceptive!

      I believe that I remained in the San Diego area for six months. It's a great place! My friend John P. lives there. A big plus for me.

      Being on-the-road again is exciting for me. No doubt about that!

      Thank you,
      George

    1. Hi Rick,

      Perhaps it is my download speed? This LA Times story did not load for me.

      I'll try again later.

  6. George, you will love Hwy 395! That's the route we are taking. Right now we are at Tuttle Creek Campground looking straight up at Mt Whitney! The sun is warm, the breeze is cool. Maybe we will see you after all!

  7. George, if you continue north on 395 about 15 miles into Oregon is a little town named Lakeview. They have a little geyser that goes off all the time, also a cheap campground. BUT there is a small restaurant in town Jerry's that has the best Rueben sandwich that Bill has ever eaten

  8. Hi George. Please check out the 2 Lifestraw water purification products on Amazon. The "larger capacity" item would allow you to extract an essentially unlimited amount of potable water from any stream... and without any need of electricity. Having a source of potable water would allow better and longer boondocking. You could buy a few gallon jugs of water and use the Lifestraw system to refill them. Great to see you traveling our beautiful country again. 80 is the new 65!
