We lucked out on the weather since it rained the previous day and the day after the event. We had a total of 15 cars this year which tied the record from the previous year. We traveled over Mt. Rose Highway stopped at the Lake for a Kodak moment, then on to Incline Village for a rest stop at Starbucks. Jeff Warner met us there to say hello. He still doesn’t have his M5 in working order so he didn’t join us. We continued down Lake Tahoe and up Rt. 50 to Carson City. From there we went up Rt. 341 to Virginia City for a great lunch at the Palace Restaurant. Food and service at the Palace were great as always.

Virginia City is an experience going back 150 years. Let your adventure begin with a step back in time. The 19th century mining boom turned Virginia City into the most important settlement between Denver and San Francisco; and grubby prospectors into instant millionaires. They built mansions, imported furniture and fashions from Europe and the Orient, and helped finance the Civil War… and then went on to build empires around the world. The finest example being San Francisco. Click here for information about Virgina City.
