Here we are eating again one of Pat's delicious meals!

Ted and Pat have a great pre-washer before the dishwasher goes through...

Virg in his glory! Driving his big rig!

I was practicing my shooting.

We had a fantastic visit with our friends Ted and Pat Cox in Reno, Nevada. We parked our coach on their cul-de-sac. We slept in our own bed with Molly and visited with them during the day and evening. That worked out really well. Their hospitality was overwhelming. They wouldn't let us lift a finger to help with anything. Thank you Ted and Pat, you guys are so great! Pat and Ted cooked fantastic meals, the Chicken Marsala and the Prime Rib plus the breakfasts and the lunch pizza were all first class. Thank you Ted & Pat for all graciousness.

As you can see in the pictures, they have two wonderful dogs, Sarah and Sophie. Sarah is a Britney Spaniel and Sophie is a Schnowzer. (I don't think I spelled it correctly, sorry!) They are so well behaved, we couldn't believe it. I wanted to bring both of them along with us, but Molly wouldn't have liked that one bit!

We left the Cox's home this morning at about 8:30 arrived her at Hat Creek, CA to explore Lassen Vocanic National Park. Our campground here is the Rancheria RV Park and is very nice. There is a catch and release pond. They actually feed the fish every morning with dog food! A guy that was camped in the next spot told us that he saw trout that were about 22" long. I'm going to have my coffee out there tomorrow while they feed them. I guess they come right out of the water! I'll let you know. Virg and I bought some new fishing rods about 2 years ago and have never used them, so I think we are going to give them a try tomorrow. There are also some really nice looking creeks in the area to do some serious fishing. I'm so hungry for a fresh caught trout!

I'll send more picutes and another story tomorrow. Maybe I'll even have a picture of a fish! Love to you all.
