I was in my office at work, wrapping things up to head to Reno the next morning.

We actually kept our plans for heading down. We drove down on Wednesday and were in the stands early Thursday morning. My logic was that, even with aviation shut down, the races would be allowed to fly in their well-defined box.

I would call my logic flawed, except that I wasn't the only one with that line of thinking. After some delay, they launched a Formula 1 heat and I thought that we'd see some racing, but they were quickly called back and that was the closest that we got to racing. If I remember right, they did have some military planes do some fly-bys. On Friday, we went out to Virginia City. On Saturday, we took a leisurely drive back to Seattle, with some side exploration down some Forest Service roads in Oregon.
