Heard on the air near KTRK (runways 19 and 28 in use today):

Cessna:
"Truckee Unicom, Twin Cessna XXX eight miles southwest. Runway advisory, please."

Unicom:
"Winds are 190 at 20, gusting 30. All runways are open."

Cessna (slightly clueless sound in his voice) :
"Do you have a suggested runway?"

Unicom:
"Most aircraft are using 19, right traffic."

Cessna:
"Roger. 19, right traffic."
