My step-sister, Ashley, left on her mission this past July. She was called to serve in the West Indies mission. She is now sharing the gospel in Barbados. We love her and miss her.

Wells, Nevada is "The Gateway to the East Humboldts." Growing up, my family would drive clear through to Reno before stopping to spend the night on our way to Cali. I thought that we would take it a little slower, and that meant not traveling as much on our first day- just a few hours. So, we called Wells home for the evening. It is a very small town with a couple motels, a gas station, and that's about it. We stayed at the Super 8 because the prices were cheap, and they had 2 queen beds, a refrigerator and microwave and continental breakfast.
|We are standing in front of the building next to our motel. It's an old rundown closed casino.|
When we got there, we found out why things were so cheap. The place was old. The laundry was out of order (not that we needed that). There were little tiny bugs in the bathroom sink. I don't know how long it had been since some one had used our room. It wasn't dusty/dirty necessarily, and I checked the beds for bugs and they were clean. But the old front door was sorta brittle and didn't close very well, so all you had to do is push, and you were in. In fact, we were glad we used the swinging lock thingie at the top of the door because at midnight, we had a guy try to walk into our room. Besides giving us a heart attack, there was no harm done. The guy was staying in the room next to ours, and he accidently got the wrong door.
