View Full Version : Congratulations Reno, Nevada.

My 2004 award for "City I was glad to get the hell out of" goes to Reno, Nevada.

The friendliness of your local law enforcement officers stands alone. Especially the officer I approached to ask directions who then turrned around and started asking me some almost accusing questions (I don't look that dodgy do I? :( ), a big thanks to you.

Your sterile main street and breath taking casinos certainly make a person feel welcome.

The feeling of security a visitor feel downtown, especially when approached by individuals who have exhausted their play money and feel it's totally acceptable to ask strangers on the street if they could spare $5.

Biggest little city..........biggest armpit more like it. :yuk:

So THAT'S where you've been?

That San Francisco place sure is hilly.

Darn people kept stepping on my fingers as I crawled up Lombard Street after a few too many. ;)

That'll teach you not to have too many hills then.

For the Ozmates out there, I did see Coit Tower. How appropriate.

Nothing to do with Halloween you understand.

Jerricho ,
not far from the Coit tower there was a bottle shop , which rejoiced in the name of.

Coit Liquors

Perhaps even more apt?

Have taken a photo of it on every trip to San Fran . May still be there haven't visited SFO in a while.

Coit Liquors

Ahahahah! Now that's funny. I didn't see that one.

For those that haven't been there, the approach to the Coit is very difficult (if you're into that sort of thing).

and started asking me some almost accusing questions Do you have an Arabic/Mediterranean look?

How was da wedding?

25th Oct 2004, 15:03
Sure I look Arabic/Mediterranean. The blonde hair and blue eyes are a dead give away (perhaps it was the shirt?)

And I wasn't there for a wedding. One MIL is enough thank you.

Oh, and a piece of advice for you guys. If you're going to drive up to the Lake Tahoe area at this time of year, don't get a compact as a hire car. They look silly with snow-chains on them.

Then, is this you Jerricho?

I have a picture of him, but it's worth an entire thread.

Just biding my time...

26th Oct 2004, 16:08
Great picture.

Looks like Plazbot has been posting the family photo album on his web page again.

Go on Onan..............dare you.

Reno cops? you DO know they're the new stars of The Comedy Central network, (http://www.comedycentral.com/tv_shows/reno911/) don't you?

By the way, the Reno Hilton is quite a passable resort - just don't leave the property.

That dude sitting on the front of the car (in the shorts) looks just like the copper I had the misfortune of meeting.
