    Default Reno Stead Airport 8-19-17 Report

    Cruised over to the airport to see whats going on. The general admission bleachers are going up, the Bear and 232 locked up tight, a variety of air tankers waiting to be called into service.

    The only early bird was a Cub :-)

    Swan lake has gone down a little over a foot, but I think it will have water in it for some time.

    Come-on September.
