Packed for my last adventure of summer 2010

Rachael and I will be traveling first to the Burning Man festival, then completing a driving tour of the upper Midwest (by way of Salt Lake City) which will go as far east as Alexandria MN. We're taking her Prius, rather than my Civic, for the sake of improved gas mileage.

Staying at Cal Neva

It's one of the cheapest places to stay in downtown Reno, and where I stayed the day before Burning Man last year :)

Two levels of protection...

As an establishment catering to gamblers, this hotel offers two levels of protection: since you can't open the windows you can't kill yourself by opening a window and jumping out, and since said windows are reinforced with wire you can't shatter the window and do the same.
