Fallon's 95 degrees is cool fulltime residents say

Shade? You call that shade?
   FALLON, Nevada - The Red Writer arrived this afternoon at 3 p.m. after an up-and-down, 4-hour drive from Ely, Nevada.
     The up and down was from crossing a half dozen (or more!) passes, all well-paved, marked and nothing - really nothing - compared to the white-knuckle experience with the Vail Pass, brake-screeching episode last Sunday.
     The Fallon RV Park is an OK place, but lacking shade. Today, given that is 95 degrees at 5:30 p.m., throwing a little shade over The Red Writer trailer would be a really nice addition to the park's amenities.
     Several local folks told me I should have been here a few weeks ago when it was hitting 110 every day. No thanks, amigos.
     As it is, the ever valiant AC unit is chugging along, trying to make life inside the trailer passable.
     It's a good place to nest for this last night of the cross-country passage that started two weeks ago Sunday in Watkins Glen. At least it will be once the AC catches up.
      In the meantime, a bottle of J. Lohr wine is chilling in the Yeti cooler, a bottle picked up in Delta, Utah yesterday.
      Maybe the wine will cool things down.
Gotta love that 95-degree sun hitting a red paint job

RV Park, gas station, store and souvenir shop - all in one
