I swear this is work, why else would I get up at 4:30 in the morning, leave for the airport at 5:30, fly 5.5 hours, and drive through the mountains to Lake Tahoe - someone is paying me to do this. The drive from Reno to Lake Tahoe is breathtaking, in more ways than one. It crosses a mountain, I passed a sign saying 8,000 feet, and kept climbing. Reno is very much a high dessert landscape, I love that landscape. The area around the like is very alpine village - I prefer the dryer side of the mountain, but the lake is very pretty. Meetings will consume most of the time I am here, and being three time zones away is a bit disorienting. I surprised by the slot machines in the airport in Reno. I spent 10 minutes in the casino at the hotel, I was $6.25 ahead and I cashed out. Now I need to stay out.
I posted the picture of me on the plane on Facebook and Ron mentioned the aisle seat. I almost always, book and aisle seat. I book as early as possible, and I always try to select seats. If I can't get what I want when I book, I keep checking back online and 9 out of 10 times, I am able to get an aisle seat on the left side of the plane, so my right arm is on the aisle side.
