May 27

The cask on the road at sunset.

Left Reno about 6:00pm on 5/27. Arrived in Burney Falls, CA late that evening. Prior to leaving Reno, and one of the reasons we left that late (we expected to leave by noon), was that it took much longer to pack the truck than previously anticipated, we had to deal with passers by and the media, and we needed to fix a busted tire on the trailer but were pulled over by an ambulance in the process.  After all that, we finally got out of Reno.
We spent the night in Burney Falls, CA at a state park there. We avoided paying for anything because we arrived too late and left too early. Towing the cask.
