Hi Terrie.....I'm guessing your town feels a little more like home this morning.....40,000 people can have a big impact!  We have a launch here today so Titusville will be more crowded than usual.  Hope you had a great time at your events.

Terrie - The more photos I see on your site, the more I think I would enjoy Northern Nevada.  I've driven through it, but have only really done Vegas.  Guess I'll have to add it to my list.

Terrie - Well as you know, I am friends with a band that "loved Lake Tahoe."  They were English, but went nuts for it.  You couldn't shut them up about it.  One of these days I'll make it up there.  Hope your week is going well too.

My body is one big goose pimple just looking at those pictures.  Looks fun but the water needs to be warm for this Southern Nevadan!

I actually don't remember a river in downtown Reno. Maybe the billions of sparkling lights had me blinded -- LOL.

I suggested way back in 1973 that they should have a river festival. Glad to know that it happened!

Mary ~ The Truckee River will is a bit cold this time a year! That is why being a spectator is much better than being a participant! Thank you.

Rita ~ Good times were had at this years Reno River Fest! Thank you for the comment.

Jim ~ The Truckee River has been a part of downtown Reno for many, many years. City officials are trying to revitalize the downtown area and are planning some really great events centered around the river to attract not only visitors but also to get locals to come downtown.

Russel ~ Wow! What a bright child you must have been in 1978....amazing it took so long for someone to actually listen to the words of a toddler.
