So it’s going to be a Looooong Drive.
3180 Miles. Yikes!
But every journey, as they say, begins with the first step –
Getting out of our parking spot at Diamond Arrow
and navigating the little winding mountain road down to the main highway.
OK, so main highway still meant winding road over mountains, but it really was a little wider!
Once we got onto I80, we just had to deal with skinny constructions lanes
as we crossed over Donner Pass and headed into Reno.
I think those first 100 miles might just have been the trickiest of the over 3000 ahead of us!
After a nice quiet night’s sleep behind the Nuggets Casino
we noticed a little problem as we hooked up the truck –
Uh-oh – it doesn’t look good!
Turns out the power steering fluid filter resevoir had lost it’s cap –
Never a good thing. And it isn’t something you have a spare for. However, we do have a quick thinking Gary along –
And it held like a charm (and hopefully will continue to do so until we can order a new top!)
As for the drive – it was lovely!
but yet, more construction….
And our resting spot for tonight –
and the campground is filling up!
250 miles down, 2930 to go. Give or take a turn or two!
