They’ll blow out quickly ...

Boulder City Correspondence – May 2016

Boulder City Discovering Boulder City Travelers tend to run into Boulder City, coming and going from somewhere else.  Going to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. Coming from Phoenix to Las Vegas, or vice versa. But there are so many amazing things surrounding the town that it gets run into a lot. I ran into it 22 years ago and found "my Mayberry" -- and made it my staging area for exploring one of the coolest corners of the Southwest. Close ...

Reno Correspondence – May 2016

Reno Whether you are a dedicated metal-head, or just an open mind seeking new forms of entertainment, Reno’s local metal scene is something you’ll definitely want to check out while you’re in town. In my personal opinion, the most rockin’ metal show of the month will be We Predict a Riot with Decades In, Contortion, and The Lives We Live. The show will be put on outside of Remedy’s in Carson City (20 minutes South of Reno) on Saturday, May ...

South Lake Tahoe Springtime at Lake Tahoe Get out the shorts and t-shirts, but don’t put your parkas away just yet.  It’s day-by-day weather up here at the Lake.  One day it can be 70 degrees and sunny, then 30 degrees and snowing the next day. Daytime activities on the South Shore become limited when it’s cold out and the ski resorts have closed.  But when the temperatures are comfortable there is outdoor fun sprouting all over.  And of course, ...

Tuscarora One Cowboy's Culinary Treat May Be Another Person's "Eww!" Old timers will tell you that some years branding calves in Independence Valley may extend from April 15 to 4th of July. It depends on the weather and the size of the herd. If it goes until July, the cowboys are darn ready to head to Elko for the Silver State Stampede and to whoop it up for a few days. An educated guess from a longtime Independence Valley rancher ...
