Refreshing some tired wood work.
Mike and Lori are visiting from Indiana. Mike, Cliff and I are old high school friends. Mike became a civil engineer and has worked on State Department construction projects all over the wold. I had not seen him since 1968 and it was great to catch-up and reminisce about our well spent youth.
Cliff gave us an excellent tour of the Nevada State Museum housed in the old Carson City Mint building. They are standing in front of the scale used to weigh the bullion used to mint coins.
Trip to Virginia City ... NOT
Heading out to Virginia City Mike's car developed quite a vibration. We thought it was a flat, but it turned out that three studs had broken off and the rear tire was wobbling badly. He was lucky that this happened here and not out in the middle of nowhere.
The Ford dealer had him back on the road in a few hours.
