amc Posted January 22, 2009 Report Share Posted January 22, 2009 So, Amy and Lana drove from Oregon to Denver in 2 days. Our big adventure was trying to find ice cream in Winnemucca yesterday, 1/20. Lana's GPS, "Gerbil", told us there was a Baskin-Robbins on Winnemucca Blvd but darned if we could find it. We decided to get a soft-serve at McDonald's but upon arriving there, the guy told us they didn't have ice cream cones (never mind we could see the ice cream machine..NOT ON THE MENU, so not available!) Yikes. So we consult Gerbil again; she tells us that there's Shamrock Ice Cream in Winnemucca. We dutifully follow her convoluted directions into a residential subdivision (surely this CAN'T be right...) until we round a corner and there.........in the corner of a driveway, is........... a SHAMROCK ICE CREAM TRUCK which is FOR SALE. This is toooo scary. We decide to make one more attempt at the alleged Baskin-Robbins on Winnemucca Blvd; Amy thinks it might be inside this seedy casino that we bypassed twice, so we park and go in. Lana asks a slot machine attendant where is the B-R, and she replies "Oh, we don't have that any more BUT we do have an ice cream shoppe back there.....so we headed "back there" to find a Dreyer's shoppe. Yay! And it only cost us about 45 minutes! We cruised into Denver at around 6-ish this evening after surviving pea soup freezing fog across the Utah salt flats and are happily and comfortably ensconced in the Marriott TownePlace Suites. Our dogs are happy and we are happy, after feasting on delivered Thai/Chinese/Vietnamese food (us, not the dogs!) We'll head over to the Stock Show tomorrow to check out the dog sale and the trade show, then prep mentally for the elimination cow dog round. Amy's running Marti 4th, and Lana is 40th with Kell. 50 dogs are entered. Hopefully we'll both make it to the Saturday morning Finals! Geri and Elizabeth fly in on Friday evening to run in Open sheep on Sunday. We'll expect them to cheerlead for us in Intermediate Sheep on Saturday, and in the Cattle Finals should we make it there. More good news as it happens! Amy and Lana Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
