The First Step Of Our Journey From Fantasy To Reality
Song: Welcome To Your Fantasy
Group: Future World Music
We have found our new home in Reno, Nevada.
This is to be our new base of operations for Alex.
Although his acceptance to the Davidson Academy is by no means assured
this is a first and necessary step for us to secure him a possible spot in a year or two.
We are heading to Reno...
across the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.
I had scouted out the house first and I had selected it based upon our needs.
My wife had only seen pictures of it...
she and Alex are to see it for the first time during this trip.
The house itself sits in the hills approximately another 800 ft.
above Reno City...which itself, sits at approximately 4,500 ft.
This puts the house at approximately 1 mile above sea level.
The air is crisp and clean...I have always loved high country.
Although it is almost half the size of our current house...
it is still roomy enough for us.
Views from the house
A view from the porch
A view of the main living quarters.
We are just a little ways by car from the University Of Nevada
(Davidson Academy location).
It is dead quiet in the neighborhood...perfect.
We shall be actually moving our furniture in 3 days.
We are very excited with this move.
We all like the neighborhood and the house.
Reno itself has many restaurants and activities for us to try.
All around Reno there are many places of natural beauty in close proximity
for us to fully explore.
Just being on this journey toward fantasy fulfillment is high adventure.
So...welcome to the first step of our fantasy.
