Day 14 - to Minden, NV

We departed Grants Pass for a fairly aggressive 377 mile drive to Minden, NV. The drive took us through some beautiful wilderness within sight of Mt. Shasta and other volcanic mountains. The last time we had seen Mt Shasta was in 1965. It is no less imposing.

We continued through Susanville, the first city that we encountered from the when we got off I5 shortly after entering California. We stopped for a bit to eat and rest and then continued on to Nevada. It was here that we encountered the lowest diesel prices that we encountered on the entire journey.

Minden is a town between Carson City (another state capital) and Gardnerville (home of the Palmers). We pulled into the Carson Valley Inn RV Resort around 5:30. The RV Resort was entirely paved, but very roomy. And it was only 3 miles from the Plamers.

We got set up and relaxed for a little while before we drove over to see Peggy and Brian and the kids. It was home made pizza night so you can't beat that. We had a great evening of conversation and laughs. We returned to CVI (Carson Valley Inn) and turned in unusually early, pretty worn out from a long driving day.
