Lemmon Valley for lunch

The 1955 Chevrolet has its weekly run.

We woke up to a light dusting of snow. This pattern of cold weather was the order of the day in stark contrast to blue skies and sunny weather yesterday.

Bill, Ann, Colleen and I boarded the 1955 Chevrolet for a lunch date in the Lemmon Valley to the north west of Reno. A former military base called Stead is just a little further along this road.

Bill and Ann are inveterate travellers. Long retired as teachers they have always been big travellers. This morning I read some early 80's copies of American Motorcyclist, Rider, Trailer Life and Motorhome. Bill has been a long time travel feature writer for these publications. I read his travels on his Honda Goldwing riding through South America and through Death Valley.

Bill and Ann bought their Chevrolet new in 1955. They usually travel in a 1969 Trailer (known in Australia as a caravan) pulled by their 1976 GMC Pickup. Their new Toyota RAV 4 is their current town car.

At the Homestyle Cafe we had an extraordinarily large lunch. My rib fillet steak sandwich with onion fries and salad was also served with a soup for $7.99 total.

We have had a few shopping trips (only for groceries so far). A supermarket chain here is called Raley's. It sells just about everything. A carton of beer here is around $20 for Coors, Samuel Adams or Heineken. The cost of living is markedly cheaper than home.
