Lately, I've found my blog less interesting already. Since I started blogging, I've only been writing about Philippines and Filipinos if not about my personal experiences. I do not write much about  my very own place Winnemucca  and its neighboring places. Since blogging is "informing", I realized I need to also feature latest happenings in my place here in this foreign land.

From this time on, I would post latest news and events about Winnemucca, Lovelock, Battle Mountain, among others.

So what's in Winnemucca? Sharin' few info about this place which according to the people I've checked-in in the hotel where I work, "a place in the middle of nowhere." Actually, it is not the only place in the middle of nowhere, it is one of the many places in the middle of nowhere here in Nevada.

According to Wikipedia:
"Winnemucca (pronounced /ˌwɪnəˈmʌkə/) is a city in and the county seat of Humboldt County, Nevada, United States.[1] As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 7,174. Interstate 80 passes through the city, where it meets U.S. Route 95.

Winnemucca is home to the Buckaroo Hall of Fame and Heritage Museum.


Most of Winnemucca's residents are employed by mining companies or by companies serving the mining industry, or by the many casinos, bars, hotels, and potato processing plants in the city. Winnemucca has several legal brothels.

Winnemucca Farms operates the world's largest potato dehydration plant. All Pringles potato chips are made in Winnemucca."
