Hot air balloons gone ...Air races happening now

In Reno and the area does have lots of events going on during weekends. This last weekend we had the Air Balloon Races. Now to me watching air balloons race is about as entertaining as watching paint dry or grass grow. The people that attend this event do not spend too much in the resort/hotel/ casinos cuz they do not gamble drink or party in the bars and lounges. They are very early morning people. They do rent rooms and eat some meals in the restaurants but just are not quite like a typical person that comes to Reno to gamble, party and visit the near by legal brothels.
One night my relief floor manager called in sick so I had to work a double shift and on into graveyard which meant that I would be going home right after the sun came up. As I got to my car in the parking lot I looked up and saw all the balloons in the air at the start of the race and they were coming my direction. There must have been at least 20 or more and with the sun shinning on them and with the beautiful colors on them it was spectacular site. I stood outside my car and watched them until some of were passing over my head. They are over with and gone now.

This weekend in Reno we have The National Air Races. These airplane races do have classifications but the top and what seems to be the American P-51 Mustangs which is probably the most notable WW2 airplane cuz of the way it changed the war's air superiority. Spectators have been killed and injured at these races when mishaps and crashes occurred. This year the Air Force Thunderbird's are putting on a demonstration in their F Fighting Falcons In past years there also have been the Navy Blue Angels.

Having trouble finding final numbers on Burning Man

I did find an article saying the Burning Man promoters have reached an agreement with the BLM who is in of the Black Rock Playa, to cap the attendance of the event at 80,000. Last year Burning Man had 100,000 on the playa.

They do provide security and Burning Man does hire their own staff of security which is made up of officers from different agencies; Nevada Highway Patrol (State Troopers), sheriff deputies from different counties, police officers from different cities, Tribal Police and I have even heard of a few federal cops volunteering their time. Not only do the cops come from Nevada but also from California, Utah, Arizona and other neighboring states. They do set up a command post and have a basic set of laws they enforce plus they do patrol the event area. Black Rock Desert is US government land so federal laws have to be enforced. Crimes of violence, sexual assault, theft and drug dealers are handled. Marijuana use is more or less tolerated now.

Medical staff is donated and volunteered from doctors; M.D.s and specialist. Also PAs (physician assistants), nurse practitioners, paramedics, nurses and other medical staff and have medical tents set up. There are paramedics with ambulances and also a med-i-vac care flight helicopter available.

There are many weird situations with outlandish costumes and even total nudity and sex acts in public. It was once frequented artistic people who brought their sculptures and creations to display and they still go to Burning Man.

There was one reported death this year and some dust storms.

They even had a 747 jet airliner there on display this year. There were news reports of the plane being escorted out the NHP (Nevada Highway Patrol) at 25 MPH and did restrict traffic and cause a back up. Glad I wasn't there!

I tried to find pics just from 20 but pics from previous years got mixed on the same page.

It looks like Burning Man will be going on for years to come.

Burning man ends this weekend

So far I have not been able get much info on the attendance and other things like that but there has been death this year and not all info has been released on that yet. They did say on the local news that he may have died cuz of carbon monoxide poisoning and there may be some drugs in his system. The Pershing County Sheriff has not ruled homicide.

There was an accident on the road Black Rock during the week that held up traffic and it was handled by the Pyramid Lake Tribal Police cuz it happened on reservation land.

I will be posting updates on Burning man as I get them. Meanwhile there is a rib cook off in Sparks, which is a neighbor city of Reno and Reno and Sparks do connect together in case does not know the area.

They have cook offs of ribs and chili plus a 'wing ding' which is barbecue chicken wings in the Reno Sparks area. Virginia City which was mentioned many times in the TV series Bonanza usually has something going on. Lake Tahoe has also been in the background of many Bonanza episodes.

Husband and I will be going up Tahoe next week after the schools are back in session. There has been a beach shortage this year cuz of the wet winter and Tahoe is over full which makes smaller beaches. The water level is much higher this year.

Many of the burners started early this year and some were arriving about 2 weeks ago. According news reports they have been stocking up on bottled water and alcoholic beverages. They also a lot of food from the Reno markets take with them.

As early as last Friday there already was a at the gate going into the Black Rock Desert . That is fine for people in RVs had a restroom and could also make a sandwich or fix something eat but if you were of the people in just car and you had go or poop you would have run off in the desert brush take care of biz.

Last year there were over 100,000 at this event and it just keeps getting bigger every year.

There are many camps there and a variety such as; LGBTQ, nudists for the totally nude and many theme camps (super heroes), etc.

The promoters are doing a great job of cleaning up and staffing people to make sure the playa looks as it did before the event after it is over.

I did post some pics of past Burning Man events and will post some of the 2019 event after it is over and they have posted pics.

Fixed Husband and I a good dinner tonight from our garden

I fixed BLT sandwiches tonight for Husband and I. I went to the garden and picked 2 vine ripened tomatoes, a zucchini and a dozen green beans (bush beans).

I fried up 4 strips of bacon and toasted 4 slices of 100% whole wheat bread and spread a little mayonnaise on them and placed a slice of American cheese on 2 of the slices. Then I placed leaves of romaine lettuce over the cheese and then sliced tomatoes and put the strips of bacon over the tomatoes and the other slice of bread over and cut the sandwiches in half and placed them on a dinner plate.

While I was doing I had some green beans boiling and some sliced zucchini rounds cooking in a skillet with butter and garlic powder and when they were done I added them to the plates. We had dinner on the deck. We both had a glass of iced tea drink. It was a nice summer time dinner.

I luv the peace and quiet in here tonight.
