Back in the Bay

I got away from Fernley just after noon, but because of the bad experience I had over Donner Summit my last trip westbound (the lanes have been split into two single westbound lanes while they work on rebuilding the road, causing massive backups), I decided to go via Carson City and South Lake Tahoe. This turns out to be somewhat longer both in distance and time. It's a lovely drive in places, but you have to pay closer attention; furthermore, there's enough two-lane sections that a nervous driver like me ends up with a tail of cars wanting to get around as soon as I can find a place to pull over. Also motorcycles. Lots of them, heading back from Street Vibrations in Sparks. The trip took me 9 1/2 hours. Bleah.
