May 25, 2012

H and Daisy Water Dog, enjoying a glassy Lake Tahoe morning.  Stand up Paddleboarding (SUP) has become wildly popular on Lake Tahoe in the last few years.  Can’t imagine why. Lake Tahoe has many nicknames.  One of them is Big Blue.  Yes, the water really is that shockingly blue.  Tahoe  is one of the deepest… Read More ›

Reports from Kauai- SUP surfing on the Garden Island

Our trip to Kauai was primarily for SUP surfing and trail running/hiking.  Since we normally surf in cold water (50F), the warm water was a dream.

Why we hate Tahoe

So why “Tahoe Sux?”  Isn’t that a bit negative for a blog? Here’s a snapshot of a conversation we’ve been having for 6 years now. “Well this sucks, I’m missing General Hospital!” Me- “How’s the weather?” H- “Oh it sucks today.  Glassy lake, blue skies, 70s” Me- “Wow that does suck?” or H- “What did… Read More ›
