Top Ten Reasons the Roaming Gnome should have come to Tahoe

travelocity-gnome-tahoeTop Ten Reasons the Roaming Gnome should should have broken his Cabin Fever in Tahoe rather than Utah in Travelocity’s Top Ski Destination contest.

1.     Ski in two states at the same time at Heavenly while looking at the deep blue of Lake Tahoe, even with your narrow gnome stance

2.     Go on a blind date with Tahoe Tessie (Lake Tahoe’s mythical resident “sea creature”).

3.     Depending on how the date goes, perhaps a quick wedding and an even quicker divorce in Reno.

4.     50 Tram laps at Squaw Valley USA to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first televised Winter Olympic Games.

5.     Tempt fate with a visit to the Donner Party museum,  just hope they don’t think you’re a chocolate filled gnome.

6.     Our drinks have personality with drinks like the ‘Wet Woody’, the ‘Scorpion’ and the ‘Flaming Kava Kava’. Gnomes keep your beards away from the flames!

7.     Forgot your skis?  No problem, where else but in Sparks can you get your skis, ride a Ferris Wheel and drive a NASCAR simulator in one mega sports store?

8.     Follow in the footsteps of Ol’ Blue Eyes and Marilyn Monroe in the tunnels at the historic Cal Neva Lodge

9.     Spend a little downtime at the spa before heading out for a long night in Reno

10.    Satisfy a late night hunger at what has been heralded as one of the best burgers in the country, the Awful Awful, awfully big, awfully good, don’t be scared my friend, you can do it.

    Don’t forget the Nevada Day beard contest, in which our gnome friend could certainly be competitive.

  2. I really enjoyed this web log – very creative and good points. Plus this is a very diverse area of the west so gnome’s are welcome!

    It’s all about the awful awful and the Tahoe Tessie! And even without the local-and-proud sentimentality, I’m not sure what travelocity overlooked Reno Tahoe.

    If anything, it took me two years to appreciate Reno Tahoe as much as I do now.

    Acquired taste, perhaps.

  4. Dude.. I am not much into reading, but somehow I got to read lots of articles on your blog. Its amazing how interesting it is for me to visit you very often.

  5. Aloha! I want to say gracias for an interesting website about a something I have had an interest in for many years now. I have been lurking and reading the posts frequently and just wanted to thank you for providing me with some very good articles. I anticipate more, and taking a more active role in the conversations on your site.
