To Reno We Will Go

This morning we were on the road very early so that we could get to Big O Tires in Reno when they opened at 7:30 this morning. That's because the left-front tire on the Astro has been slowly leaking for a while now, and it was presumably covered by warranty. They found the problem, fixed it, and also rotated the tires as it was time anyway, all covered.

Based on the weather forecast next week, it's looking increasingly like we'll need to travel to SMOFCon in Lisa's small orange pickup, which is nowhere near as comfortable as the minivan, but Lisa's vehicles are 4WD with snow tires, and there's a pretty good chance that we'll need that to get over the top on Thursday morning (or possibly Wednesday afternoon, depending on our last-minute plans.

After dealing with the tires, we went to the Peppermill for Saturday brunch. Luck was with us on keno: I won $10. (One more number in the right place and it would have been $100, but that's how it goes.) We then had some shopping to do, both for ourselves (we both needed shoes, and SAS was running a buy-one-get-one-half-price sale) and for others (we picked up the stuff for a gift basket for my sister) before heading home. Weather was good. Traffic was not bad. It was a pretty good day.
