You guys have a beautiful state

My girlfriend & I (also an FTE ) just got back from a camping trip in the high desert. We spent the weekend at Spencer Hot Springs near Austin. Any other hot springers out there?

We came back burned, but relaxed and happy. We had a great time.

I love Nevada - the endless miles of untouched land. Theres something beautiful about it. Id live there if I could find a job.

I really miss the desert there. I was born and raised in Nevada and I know just about every square inch of Washoe County's back roads. If you like hot springs, you should try going to Wally's Hot Springs in Genoa just outside of Carson City. It's a great place to just lounge.

And take it from me, living in Reno is expensive. When I moved here to Montana, I was amazed at the difference in the cost of living. At least in Reno it's expensive, I'm not sure aboot Elko, Winnemucca, etc.

Yes, Nevada is beautiful country. Vegas isn't the only reason I moved here. As to that, I did choose Vegas just because there are soooooooo many job opportunities here. This has to be the best place in the US right now for opportunity. And yes, I do have to put up with the craziness that living in a growing city with a huge transient population means, but I'm banking more than enough $$ to support my future desires and will let me spend the kind of time I want in those endless miles.

Wow, you've actually heard of Spencers? (let alone been to it?) I'm impressed Andy.

We are both hot springs fans, but she's a little newer at it than I am. I've been to at least 15 or 20 of them throughout Nevada and the eastern Sierras. There is something incredibly relaxing about sitting in the hot water where all you can hear is the wind and the animals.

We didn't see much wildlife this trip. In the past, we've seen antelope, wild burros, wild horses, big horn sheep, bald eagles (that was actually northwestern AZ), and of course lots of jackrabbits.

Dave, the mormom crickets weren't as plentiful as they were last year when we went. I remember the state DOT putting up mobile signs on the road saying watch out for slippery conditions. Cars running over a couple hundred thousand crickets over a mile stretch of road will do that.

I actually lived in Vegas for a while. I didn't care for it. The worst drivers I've ever encountered and the rudest people I've ever dealt with. Not that everyone there is like that, but I sure couldn't take it. I hope you bought property. That's the easiest way to make money, except for taking tourists money at the poker tables.

What line of work are you in? Here in the northern part of the state mining is booming, & all the mines are looking for people, especially maintinance personel, an expererianced mechanic can easily pick up a $20-$26 per hr job,

Living here in Golconda Hot springs are pretty common, Not counting the local ones there are at least three others within 25 miles of home,
