My last loan to this part of The Sierras was a blast. It was a bus man’s holiday of sorts. We showed up little later in April and during the drought but I was driving my old dog catcher truck. I’ve never worked in the snow but it can’t be that much harder. I’ll do the best I can. It was on one of those back roads where I met a relative of German General Friedrich Paulus. I noticed his last name on the trouble ticket and before long, we were checking out some his memorabilia.
They’re putting us up at a Holiday Inn Express on the main drag. I have quite a few points there from my ill fated attempt to help someone a couple of years ago. Now with no Toonce to worry about, I don’t need to rush back. On the final day of the loan, I will drive back to Oakland, pick up Tashi and head to SFO.
The good thing about this hotel is they do a pretty tasty breakfast and thus the 45 dollars meal per diem can go for a good dinner. Back to the snow. I’m not worried, it’s going to be in the seventies and sunny. I think Grass Valley is below the snowline though the above picture looks a bit snowy. This too will pass
