If you live around Reno and Sparks, there is plenty to do within a two gallon radius of the Truckee Meadows. You will have to define your own distance since I don't know whether you are driving a Hummer or Honda. In some cases, you can get to the fun without buying any gas at all. Just because you can't afford to buy much gas doesn't mean you have to hunker down at home.
