Roxy of KG fame decided he was going to visit the White Pine races in Ely this summer, so me and McChump #2 subsequently formulated a stupendously brilliant plan for a big summer 2013 horse racing outing, especially considering he was thinking about going out to No Cal that summer. So I'd fly down from Missoula and meet him in San Francisco, from where we would proceed in a northerly direction to the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa, then east to Reno, farther east to Ely for the White Pine Races to meet up with Roxy and have more exciting Hotel Nevada adventures, and finally down to Vegas, from where I'd then fly back and he would drive on to ... somewhere. Brilliant. Could not fail.
The most astounding thing was, it went off without a hitch. So what the hell kind of humorous story does that make?
The Sonoma County Fair was a blast. Pictures only.
