Over the 4th of July my boyfriend and I headed to Tahoe Via Las Vegas. What is in between Las Vegas and Tahoe one may ask. The answer to that is NOTHING, it is many many hours of desert. Hot and dry, 107 degrees outside. We did find this little town, I'm sure anyone who does that drive stops here. Beatty, Nevada is a small little roadside stop where you can stock up on garlic stuffed olives and beef jerky use the restroom and keep on trucking to the next stop. While in Beatty I talked with Ron. He is a veteran and has lived there for many many years. He is the owner of the olive and jerky shop and was very happy to talk with us. As we were very pleased to exchange stories with him.
