Update: 10/2015. Now living in one of those uppity golf course communities on the side of a mountain, looking down on Las Vegas. Local fishing is now Stripers in Lake Mead. On the upside, we’re an hour closer to the Mammoth, Ca area than we were when we were in Northern, Ca and an easy days jaunt over to the Juan.
