Living in Reno

Living in Reno

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Hello From Reno!

For quite sometime now, over one year to be exact, I have contemplated starting another blog.
Maybe you know about my travel blog "Traveling On A Budget With Debbie".  Maybe you're a follower.  I know I'm guilty of not sharing my travel stories as often as I should, or as you would like me to.  I will still be writing stories about my travels on my travel blog because oh believe me, I still have plenty of travel stories to share. 

But, after moving to Reno Nevada in November 2011, I have been having way too much fun living here!

And all that fun has lead me to want to share with you, why I love living in Reno! 

I've been coming to Reno for the past 40 years while living in Central Nevada.  It was always to either do some shopping or for doctors appointments.  I never really liked Reno all that much.  I thought! 

So why did I move to Reno Nevada then?  Well while living in Las Vegas, Nevada I was diagnosed with Melanoma Level 4 in June 2010.  And you all know how ridiculously hot Las Vegas can be, for way too many months.  And I love to be outdoors, cycling, hiking, etc.  And wearing long sleeves, long pants, and big hats is not the way you stay cool during 110 plus degrees!!

My husband and I decided that moving to a cooler climate would make me very happy!  My husbands that way, what makes me happy, makes him happy!  So after thinking of a couple of places where I could dress like a movie star in disguise and not be miserable, we settled on Reno.

Yes, Reno can have some pretty warm temps too, but they don't last for 6 months out of the year!!

So here I am, finally starting this blog that I have thought about for over a year!  And I already have so much to share with you! 

We have been
Water Skiing
Snow Skiing
And my new favorite
Yes that's beautiful Lake Tahoe behind me!
We've also been to San Francisco, California Gold Country and going to events like Hot August Nights, The Great Reno Balloon Races, The Rib Cook Off.....the list goes on forever!!

I hope you follow along as I share with you "Why I Love Living In Reno"


  1. Hi Debbie, Love the new blog. I also am enjoying hearing more about your life in Reno. From FB, I KNOW how much you love it there --and how healthy you are now..

    Please add a "Follow by Email" gadget on your sidebar so that I can follow this one. Thanks.

  2. Thank you, Betsy! Your suggestions are surely helping me to make sure I have a great blog to share with everyone!

    Hugs back!

  3. Yes but of course I'm going to follow you and link to your new blog. I take it you will no longer post at the old place.

    In my opinion any blogger on Blogger will have a better blog if they disable Lightbox thus enabling readers to enlarge picture not once but twice most of the time. Yours are too good not to get a much better look at them.

    1. Awe, thanks! I'm so happy you are here!! I will continue to post on my other blog....I do have many more travel stories to share! Trips like Africa, Ireland, my bike ride through Tuscany and many more! I just have to take the time (or have the time) to post them!
      Welcome and thank you again! So happy to see you here!

  4. Also Debbie I think you have to enable the the RSS feed or something like that. Come over to my place and you'll see what I mean when you click on your site which is at the bottom of the link list. It's not going to update or show the picture associated with your latest post and it looks nothing like it should. I'm not exactly sure what you change though.

  5. Hi Debbie and Stijn — great to hear from you. Glad you are doing so much better in Reno, and it looks like a lot of fun, too.
    I will definitely follow this new blog, and you never know, we might just visit some day. We didn't enjoy the 100-degree temperatures in Vegas, but Reno/Lake Tahoe might be just the ticket for a Nevada drive with the dog.
    Luv, Kay and Dick and our lovely Lindy

  6. You make Reno sound like a wonderful place. We've never been there, so I'm looking forward to learning more about it.

  7. Debbie, Looks like Reno is a great place to live. It has so much to offer as far as enjoying the great outdoors. I do hope you stay covered up, though! Great post, thanks for sharing your new life in Reno!

  8. My hometown, as seen through your eyes, will be so interesting to me!

    1. How exciting to know that Reno is your hometown!! I will do my best to bring back some memories and hopefully share what's new in this beautiful area of Nevada! Thank you for following!


Thank you for visiting my blog! I would love to read your comments about this post!!
