Greg, Dwight, Max, and Big Al >> Hi and Thanks to all of you.
Big Al >> The mountains make a nice background all year round, and I sure agree with you because they are most beautiful in the winter when they are covered with snow as seen here. (Thumbs Up)

Uwe, give me a bit of advance notice when you will be in this area and I'll be able to set up a great spotting opportunity for you (see FA gallery ... Airport: KNFL). Plus I can show you all the premier locations at RNO, too.
Actually, the offer is not just for Uwe. It is also for you, Dave, and for any of my FA friends. I do need a bit of advance notice (in other words, writing and saying "I'll be there next week" isn't enough advance notice; I'd need to know several weeks in advance), and I'll take it from there.
