A Train, Cool Cars and a Spooky Bowling Alley!

On February 5, 1994, I married my best friend and for our honeymoon we took Amtrak to Truckee and rented a house in North Lake Tahoe for a few days of skiing. It was a big snow year in 1994. We decided that after 24 years, it was time to take that trip again.

This time we took some very good friends and rode all the way to Reno. If you’ve never done this trip you are missing out! The Sacramento Railroad Museum has volunteers that ride the train from Sacramento to Reno and give commentary on all of the places we traveling through as well as very interesting railroad history over the Sierra.

This year the snow levels are pretty low so we didn’t get the epic white that we saw in 1994. But the ride was still a lot of fun, and the lunch and Bloody Marys were delicious!

Also, when in Reno, stop in and see the Car museum and stumble upon the biggest bowling alley I’ve ever seen and we were the only ones there!

I also came back 60.00 richer from playing a few slot machines! 🙂
