Tahoe is Lake Tahoe California, Reno is in Nevada. The connection is 
the two of the cities are connected by I80, The same road you'd take to 
get from Boston to Berkeley.  Lake Tahoe is a resort area in the mountains 
about 50miles (or so) west of Reno. 

In those cities sawing the branch your sitting on may well be a paying 
bet or a reason to party.
