Good Advice Yields Great Results
--J.L.S.

Want to get better at off-roading, launching a boat, or wakeboarding? Invite people with superior skills on your adventures. While searching for a launch site at Pyramid Lake, we met Bob Cain, a Reno contractor enjoying an afternoon of Jet-Skiing. With intimate knowledge of the area, he encouraged us to try a deep-water launch, demonstrating the surprisingly solid lake bottom by sloshing out to waist level in his swimsuit. Cain even suggested a diagonal path over a sandbar to deep water--and success! At nightfall, after discovering that we had forgotten matches, wakeboarding buddy Dan Kruger improvised fire-starting with the Hummer's cigarette lighter. Dry grass sheltered inside a paper-towel cone and some judicious blowing on twigs inside a rock fireplace netted a dandy fire. Once again, the experts had saved the day.
