Why our Tahoe-Reno trip was so awesome!


For many, its just another vacation, but for me, its one overwhelming experience, the squaw valley slopes reminding me of what happened on the icy Himalayan glaciers of Sar-Pass,  an helicopter ride over the Emerald Bay sliding me into a nostalgic silence of an armed life I have missed severely, a quick lift in a 1949 studebaker champion starlight coupe car with the 79 year old driver parading his ‘little stinker’ so proudly almost pushing me into a deep thought of my own spectacle of pride… and Yes! the long and royal white car that was driven by the King of Rock’n’Roll – Elvis Presley – which made my heart sink with jealousy and pain..

Nothing less for the time we spent together as a family, here are only a few of those fantasy moments 🙂

Future Pilots? Not sure, but I definitely want them to grow up ‘wholesome’ without any myopic attitudes these rich parents forcing on their children nowadays.
