Describe your perfect Tahoe summer day: Get up when the water is calm on Tahoe and go for a paddle board session. Then go boating with the family and maybe a few friends for the day. Come home and throw some food on the BBQ with friends and enjoy!
If it snows 2 feet overnight,: Duh…..powder day of course. Hopefully it’s on a weekend day when I can get out and enjoy some fresh turns with the family. Once our legs can’t stand another run we go grab a yummy bite and relax. Then it’s the dogs turn. Take the dog for a walk out in the meadow and let him get his freshies.
Favorite Tahoe trail? Most traveled is a great little foot trail by my house in Prosser. It connects with Emigrant Trail in Truckee and you can go for miles. In the basin I would have to say any part of the Rim Trail where you can catch sight of the lake for part of the hike.
Favorite Tahoe beach? Speedboat beach is the prettiest, but Meeks Bay is the most visited by our family. Sand Harbor is also amazing-just too crowded for me!
Favorite celebrity? Hummmmmm Ellen - she is so frick’n funny, and just a good person
What was your first concert? Cheap Trick
What is your dream vacation? I would love to go to New Zealand with the family and have some adventure time, then head to a lovely Island country close by and be located right on the water’s edge for some relaxing and moderate activity time in the water.
What is your motto? Don’t worry, be happy
