I take part of the parade with the Kerak Shriners in my Tin Lizzy mini car, always fun to see the smiling faces of everyone young and old :)
This is a once in a lifetime experience. If someone does not go on the drive one could always wait until the cattle drive makes its destination through Reno. Almost more cowpokes then cows but the finale though the streets is worth it. Also keeps the street sweeper busy afterwards.

Sitting in the saddle for five days driving 300 head of cattle 100 miles will certainly help make your dream come true. Everything from the strict dress code (cowboy dress only), the... More
