A wonderful vacation in Nevada

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Dear Editor:

I've just finished a two-week vacation in Nevada and I want to compliment the people (especially the merchants). People just seem to be openly gracious in your town. I did travel your "Crossroads to Adventure" and found activities in all directions. My vacation highlight, however, was in your hometown -- the Nevada Speedway. At 69 years of age, I experienced my first track race and it was amazing! The biggest surprise was that it's a family sport. Family groups with toddlers, teens, right up to oldsters like me were spellbound at the events. Best wishes to the owners, Shawn & Tracey Hendren, who are giving back to the city while having a grand time of pursuing their racing passion. I will see you next year and invite you to visit Colorado sometime.
