Pioneers towing their conestoga wagons across the 480 mile great basin desert (named by James Fremont in 1839 as he discovered no water flows out hence the name great basin) would rest, refresh in the Truckee Meadows (that's Reno). Next leg on the journey is climbing the 7237 ft Donner Summit (we all know what bad planning can lead to!) then it's all down hill to the promise land.
Those adventurous enough to undertake this journey are always welcome to rest their oxen, re-supply their wagons at our place. We have many empty bedrooms, comfortable beds, hot showers, and tasty grub to rejuvenate tired bodies for the road ahead.
Reno is 220 miles from Alameda, HQ for the Corsair National June 13-16. See www.corsairnationals-usa.com to sign up. And about 25 miles to Lake Forest launch ramp on Lake Tahoe. Ideally situated for those easterners making the trek.
All this is available for free if you will share a sailing story with the proprietors. Don't miss this opportunity for adventure, get out and sail this summer!
