We drove over passes and encountered some weather but the trip was easy. We stopped at Susanville, CA for lunch and headed on towards Reno, NV. I remembered that our childhood friend Gail and her husband John lived somewhere near Reno. We called and spent a lovely evening with them. On the way we met Steve's good friend Roland and hid wife Judy in Reno. They had rescued some of Steve's art from a gallery that closed and we stopped to pick it up.
