In early August, I went to Reno, Nevada for the first time in my life. I went to attend the 9th Annual Oregon Institute of Technology BBQ Reunion and attend an advisory alumni board meeting. I not only got to see Reno itself, but I made the trek to Carson and Virginia City as well as Lake Tahoe after visiting family in Grass Valley, California. I drove down so that I could take in the whole experience of the route from Wilsonville to Reno. I saw some pretty amazing sights along the way and met some awesome people. Next year though, I am flying down.
