Birthdays in Tahoe Suck
For my birthday, I think I’d like a long SUP paddle, a white sand beach all to myself, and a nice trail run.
For those that haven’t spent time on the lake on an SUP or kayak- make time. You’ll never experience Lake Tahoe as vividly as you can while under your own power, gliding silently along with no noise but the lapping of water. Late September is a great time to be on the lake. I’m thrilled when the motorboats leave, taking their noise, exhaust, blaring music, sedentary passengers, drunk boaters, wakes, and trash with them. It’s just a different mindset, I guess.
We put in near Meeks Bay and paddled South toward Emerald Bay. About 8 miles out and back. Easy cruising pace along Rubicon Bay and D.L. Bliss Park.

Turning 41 years old was sort of anticlimactic. You know you’ve arrived when you want to do the same things you do almost every day for your birthday. I’m very lucky… and grateful.
