I just looked it up. Reno to Carson City is 31 miles.

Is there anything between the two besides the geothermal plant?
I mean such that it could be considered an extended metro area as it might be Baltimore to DC?

Or just desert with an occasional cow skull? :BigGrin3:
Actually it’s kind of nice between the two. There is a small lake (Washoe Lake), some farms and a small town (Washoe City). The town is off the main highway though. It has a cool little candy shop. The Geothermal plant is just outside of Reno

I think eventually, as both Reno and Carson grow it might be an extended metro area, but not yet

Small time burglar who decided that killing his victims was the best way to not get caught. To quote The Joker, "This town needs a better class of criminal".

Yeah, but you can just take up my new hobby. Upvoting EVERYTHING.

Someone says "I just had a baby."...like.

Someone else says "I just got diagnosed with terminal cancer"...also like. It confuses the hell out of people.

Oh hell no. Supporting those people is expensive. There are all the normal expenses + chemo, doctor's visits, etc.

You know those little mini-libraries that have become a thing recently? The ones that are little boxes with some books in them and anyone can take one to read.

Some asshole around here is stocking them with Neo-Nazi leaflets.

This is why we can't have nice things.
