2002 - Who in his right mind travels to Reno, Nevada?
Here in Los Angeles, when you live closer to the pumped
up gambling mecca that is Las Vegas, why on earth would
you choose to go to Reno? Frankly, you don't. Reno chooses
taking family car trips to Reno in 1969, solely because
my grandparents moved to Reno in 1969. Gramps took a job
with The Wooster Brush Company at their new manufacturing
/ distribution facility, and for a couple who had lived
in Wooster, Ohio their entire married life [37 years at
that point] Grandma and Grandpa genuinely came to enjoy
Reno. It had a comfortable, small town feel, but with better
weather. And anyway, it was work related.
Otherwise, who would choose to live in Reno?
my sister Sue and her husband Ken did. They moved from Thousand
Oaks, CA to Reno in 1994, and had two kids right there in
Reno. But they actually lived in Sparks - the sister city
of Reno. Which is somehow different. To the people of Sparks.
Sparks is to Reno, what Henderson is to Las Vegas. What
Roseville is to Rocklin. Yeah, I don't really get it either.
me, it's Reno.
