Today's Morons...There's no licking at the grocery store

"One of things that this terrible global pandemic created for all of us a whole new category of war on in the news. And that's the person who thinks the viruses a hoax and they go in and they commit all sorts of acts of assault and vandalism using their bodily fluids and coughing sneezing as more of the day is Jennifer Walker. She comes to us from South Lake. Tahoe and she went into a first restores. Landau a safe place for. She's fifty three years old by the way so for anybody that thinks. Oh these kids today. Every one of the people that are doing that have done. This kind of crime are all at least forty years old. She's fifty three years old. She walked into the grocery store and she began licking things and ultimately she licked nearly two thousand dollars worth of merchandise all of which had to be trashed because none of it was being saved for sale. She's been charged with felony vandalism because guess what after she licked everything it touched everything and then lifted. Some more turned out that she wasn't going to be able to pay for single one of those items so they arrested or charged with felony vandalism. They talked her into L. Dorado County jail which sounds like something on but cowboy movie. She's being held on ten thousand dollars. Bond. And because we've never had a situation with the woman living in today it's kind of unclear. What sort of punishment? We're going to have people to do this kind of thing. If you WANNA see what a fifty-three-year-old grocery licking evil person looks like tech the word Moron to eighteen sixty seven or seven. We will send it straight to your phone and you'll be automatically entered to win our special Bobby Terry Hand sanitizer which is called people. Make me sick. You know. That's the second woman in the last week or so. Who has done something like that? Do you remember the story? I had a woman who licked something like thirty two thousand dollars worth of groceries and meats and seafood and and then was arrested taken right to jail and they. That store wants money. Thirty two thousand dollars you know. Here's what I'm thinking. There is somebody who's either online or he's got a radio show. Tv show and he's calling bs on all of this and he's telling people to do things that are disrupted and there are certain amount of people who are stupid enough to listen. It's like we learned from the dark night. Some people just want to watch the world burn We had that woman in Wisconsin. Movie linking the handles of a grocery store freezer. And I don't care what you believe. Don't believe what you think or don't think if you're willing to put your tongue on something that a million people have touched you're

Choosing the Right Tech Stack with Dave Paola

"It's so great to talk to you again. Dave thanks Brian you hello from South Lake Tahoe. Awesome Dave what is your developer. Origin story developer. Origin Story I am one of those weird people who got into coding. As a young kid I I started messing with Ms dos batch files on my parents. Samsung three eighty six When I was in middle school probably fifth grade. Or something like that Dos Batch files quickly led me to Q. Basic so shout out to all the old school basic programmers listening Then I kind of throughout high school Expanded my programming knowledge again. All for fun Just Doing things visual basic six Eventually progressing to Java and then I was lucky enough to really awesome university the University of Illinois Indiana Champagne And I was involved in the group there where I met just a bunch of world class. People who really kind of added rocket fuel to my programming My programming experience Yeah that's pretty much. That's pretty much. How did that? And then after after college I moved out to the bay area to pursue the proverbial startup the startup gold rush. If you will so David. Such an interesting question. Because I spent a couple of years in San Francisco and I'd love to get your take on this. Do you feel any more. That potential founders need to move out to the bay area well so I do have a new startup in South Lake Tahoe. Um and so I I lived in the area for about eight years. Six of which were at block So most of my tenure in San Francisco was at a start up and I'll be honest I think I did leave San Francisco and I left for a variety of reasons that we can probably guess what they are but I do think that. The one thing about Doing a startup in particular outside of the Bay as I think that the most difficult part there will be finding investors. I still think that the the the money that is available in the bay is unmatched anywhere else in the country But I think barring that I see no reason we've been perfectly successful. Jelly switch Without being in the bay near the of course so I can go down to the bay whenever I want but I actually haven't been there in many many many months So I definitely don't think you need to move to San Francisco to do a start but you'll definitely need to spend time there. I would imagine If you want if you're interested in raising money from a VCR or a group of angels such good insight so how much has ruby on rails made an impact on your career Yeah that's a good question. While I was first exposed to rails in college there was another student who was just getting into it and this was probably this was two thousand. I WANNA say two thousand six two thousand seven and so I'm not I don't remember if it was rails one or two at the time but we kind of went through the the d. h. h build a blog and ten minutes built a blog and five minutes with the rail scaffold command and it really opened my eyes at the time I was really knee deep in in skull. I believe Doing doing kind of exploring the the the world of the JVM and the whole world and the thing that really struck me about rails. I was introduced to like many people imagine introduced to Ruby at the same time and I remember trying to get This is I think before her. Roku was even around. I'm not sure I remember trying to get a ruby on rails a rails to project running on using passage. Gi under Apache on a on some kind of a A digital are some kind of a cloud host somewhere I really liked coming from both the python world and the world of Java. I really like the the emphasis that Ruby has on on programmer productivity and I have all sorts of thoughts and opinions an an a hobby explorations I've performed in the small talk world and The lineage between Ruby and small I think is fascinating but the thing I love about rails in particular and the thing that the the biggest impact that it's had on my career is that I like I really liked doing big things with small teams and I think that's one of the one of the philosophies if if not explicitly mentioned I I took that quote From Sam Stevenson. Who's one of the developers of base camp? So that's that's my favorite thing about rails and I found this really allows me to do is move really quickly on things like side projects rapid prototyping and now for probably the third or fourth time. It's been possible for me to move really quickly with a really small team moving from the prototype into an actual product that can be sold in the real world as a business and I. I'm not sure I'm not sure that there is another framework out. There that is as tuned to that objective as rails. I completely agree so we met when I was first a student and then an instructor a block which of course you founded and because of that and all of your experience around boot camps and watching the evolution of them. I wanted to give you a space where you can just kind of. Tell the listeners about how you feel about boot camps at this present moment yes so that could be a really long topic I was not the sole founder. I was a co-founder actually. We had we had a couple of other folks Involved as well gosh that the journey occupied six years of my life in my in my mid to late twenties and we we grew the company from basically for people to over one hundred hundred ten or maybe a hundred and fifteen people When I left in two thousand seventeen and in between two thousand twelve and two thousand seventeen. the bootcamp world just kind of exploded There was a there was a huge amount of interest In that in that industry. So I mean if you want my thoughts on on boot camps in general I've been fairly unplugged from that industry for the past two years But I will say that I believe that. The rising tide lifts all boats I think it's great that there are young talented resourceful people doing their best to change people's lives. We had A. We had a phrase that block. I don't know if you remember this or not. But we phrased that. We saw that all too often when capitalism and education meet that the result is exploitation. And we really didn't believe that that was an inevitable thing so we really really tried hard not to not to have that happen at block And for me personally. One of the one of the unique things about block. It's been awhile since I've been in touch with anybody there but so I'm not sure if this is still the way they do it the way we always try to structure. Our programs was very different than the classroom And the the word that we chose very deliberately and thoughtfully was the word mentor and so we wanted to every student to have one mentor that they had that was an experienced practitioner in the field That could help them learn and the reason for that was because first of all for me personally. I know that I've learned the most by just working alongside really talented people who are much more experienced than I was and so. I don't know that there are a ton of programs out there that think about it. That way There might be a few of them out there now But I do know that for the first couple of years we were the only ones That was really fun. the other the other thing. I don't like about blue camps honestly and this is something that we kind of discovered later on block and attempted to to kind of course correct With kind of attenuated succession. I say is a lot of times employers very skeptical bootcamp Grad sometimes. It's sometimes it's unreasonable skepticism or unfair skepticism. And other times. It's it is reasonable skepticism. There's only so much you can learn in three months and employing a bootcamp grab junior developers a very different thing than employing a potentially someone like a college undergraduates. Coming out of a computer science degree and so a lot of a lot of programs aren't really that well equipped or experienced and employing people like that but I know from a management perspective it is it is different it is different so I on the whole though. I think I think. Boot camps are a force for positive change There's always going to be a bunch of bad apples. That kind of ruined the The phrase they ruined the much of bad apples ruin the whole thing for everybody even just a few of them but I think overall it's been a positive positive movement. What about you? What do you think about boot camps? Yeah so I. I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have block because I had moved to San Francisco discovered that I couldn't be a technical product manager without learning how to Code. I needed to take a job as you know. It's so expensive to live in San Francisco and so I needed a boot camp option that I could do at night and block just seemed like the obvious choice and I really loved being paired with that mentor and learning quickly and you know that mentor encouraged me to go out to meet UPS. And that's how I found my first technical job and really haven't turned back to have been a developer sense and really loved being a mentor block. Some of my students are still people that I get along with today and who still reach out to me with job Updates and whatnot. Which is terribly exciting. I I think for a lot of people will join a boot camp because they hear that you can make a lot of money. But they haven't proven that they actually enjoy. Coding and I think it takes a somewhat special personality to really enjoy coding. And you have to make sure that you know that before you get into the boot camp because I certainly had students who just really never really clicked with it and then I had students that were just amazing prodigies who were a goat farmer in Florida I had a Barista in Seattle. They were just incredible students. And if it hadn't been for a boot camp they never would have gone down that path. So you see these bootcamp starting to close down that over promised and under delivered and I got to. Your point is the world kind of course correcting but for me the boot camps a really special because a lot of them taught ruby on rails. And we're getting to the point. Now that those students who came through and learn ruby on rails maybe five to six years ago which is how long it has been for me are now in those intermediate and senior roles and really keeping the ruby on rails community alive so I think boot camps actually played a big part of that. I think that's I think that's well put us especially your point about kind of first generation or second generation of bootcamp. Grads are now far enough along in their careers that they can certainly influence the hiring decisions now at companies So I think I think you could see a catalytic effect here. I don't I don't stay in touch with the industry as much as I used to. So I don't know if this is the case but we. We always kind of look forward to that at block where we could Face less of an uphill battle to get our grass hired So yeah I think we're getting the point though like where the HR person might see a resume with a boot camp and be like. Oh no we we don't hire from boot camps and then someone say actually did you know that Suzanne like one of our best engineers came from Goo camp. I think we're starting to get to that point. Which is fantastic. That is outstanding to

A Sneak Peek of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival

"What is the wild and scenic film festival? It's it sounds like a bunch of hippies drinking up in Nevada Vada city. You're not wrong The Wild and scenic film festival is a opportunity for filmmakers and activists from around the world to come together to tell the stories that they care most about About protecting the environment. And this is your first podcast so low right you. You had all the equipment you went up you. You didn't know who you can exactly interview. What was it like Well it was exciting I did lose my phone with all the recordings on it for a period of about twelve of hours but luckily thanks to the The kind hearted people in Nevada city. I was able to get my my phone back with all these interviews. So crisis averted so Nevada city is like the heart of the like eighteen fifties goldrush right the forty niners that that's where everything happened is amazing when you go there because it looks looks like this old gold town. That's right it's it's right in the Sierra foothills in it it does look like and feel like in some ways that you're going back in time and and Melinda The Executive Director of the South you've ever citizens league tells us a little bit about Nevada city and history in the ways in which the Yuba river in particular has really shape the town cool so his Sarah talking with Melinda booth. Who's responsible for bringing this huge festival together every year? Uh So this film festival is now in its eighteenth year and it's an environmental an adventure film based festival here in Nevada city and Grass Valley California. So we're we're in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains about halfway between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe and we had some beautiful snow last night. Blanketing our town. But it's sunny and melting and we're ready for the eight thousand people that are going to come to our small foothills town for this. Annual event. So South River Citizens League we affectionately refer to ourselves by our acronym circle was founded back in nineteen ninety-three and a bunch of concerned citizens came together when dams were proposed on the South Yuba River and they decided that's not what they wanted for the river in their community and they banded together and fought those dams over sixteen years. It was a sixteen year long fight but they were ultimately successful in protecting the river by by achieving California State designation for wild and scenic status for thirty nine miles to the south you bought which permanently protects it this community really is all about the Yuba River. It's an economic driver for us. It's a place of renewal. It's a place of recreation. It's habitat refuge. It's definitely one of the most scenic rivers in California cornea and you have these beautiful smooth granite boulders. You have these emerald waters you have deep pools. It's relatively warm in the summer and it's a magical place. There's more folks who enjoy the river naked than clothed but. Tell us a little bit about the film festival. I see that the Tagline is where activism gets inspired tired so back in nineteen ninety nine. One circled did achieve that wild and scenic status for the river they were to crossroads and decided You know they achieved what they set out to to do. And so then the question was okay well organization done. Did we reach our goal or is there more to do and they quickly realized that. Gosh there's so much more to do. Circles mission is to unite the community to protect and restore the river. And there's lots of work to be done year round so we're focusing on that mission throughout the entire watershed so from the headwaters waters up at sugarbush ski resort if people know the area that's near the headwaters all the way down to the confluence with the feather river in Marysville the founders of the film festival were very very forward thinking and realized if they could create something that could create a sustainable funding source to help the organization that would be a real help to achieving in our mission and so wild and scenic film festival was created. It was of course named after the win of wild and scenic status and it started as two nights heights and one venue back in two thousand and three and it's grown here in twenty twenty to take place in two towns. We have venues and grass valley and Nevada city. It's five days as we have ten film venues. We have activists workshops we have celebrations. We have virtual reality lounge. We have an environmental art exhibition. There's really a whole lot. Outgoing on does the film festival travel and are there ways for people that live elsewhere to enjoy the festival and enjoy these films. Yes so we kick it off every year in January January here in the foothills in Nevada city grass valley in January but then we hit the road and we take these films on tour so you might see a wild and scenic event near you we have about two hundred and fifty events annually reaching more than sixty five thousand people with these inspiring stories and you can search for an event in your area and if there's not one you can be a host so what we do which I think is really incredible. Is We're actually partnering with Environmental Organizations. Really any kind of organization who want it to host a festival in their area so that they can raise awareness for issues in their community and raise funds for the work that they're doing so it's a really cool partnership a way to get these films seen inspire more people and really Increase the groundswell for the environmental movement. As a whole I love that Can you give us an example or tells Tulsa story about maybe the most inventive or unusual way that people have brought the wild and scenic film festival to their community. I love it when people do outdoor screenings screenings. It's really great so we have some folks in Florida with their shoes off toes in the sand. Watch these films at night outside so one of the cool things about living in Sacramento obviously is the Sacramento River. And I've always had this dream of going being from reading down to the sea. One of the cool movies that you've got to see them super jealous about is cold the Sacramento at current speed and these guys go in that story story which is a teeny little boat and floated down and you go to catch up with them. Tell us about Tom and Mitch. Thomason mentor great to me. They really exemplify the film festival which his in many cases transforming what we might consider to be ordinary people. That didn't you know. Set their careers to be filmmakers or even necessarily activists who fell in love with place and wanted to tell that story to others. And that's exactly what happened with Mitch and Tom. They would go out occasionally with each other with their wives on the river and in came to be Really compelled by the river and wanting to protect it and so they made this film Which ended up winning the twenty twenty people's Choice Award a really beautiful film and Really Beautiful Film and story and I thought it was special to that. Of course the Sacramento River flows through Sacramento so we've paddled on it and Goes through the very place where a lot of decisions about water in the entire state are made so just a lot of Nice different connections with this one. Sara Fest Out Utah With Mitch Dion and then with Tom Bottles who made the Sacramento at current speed. Which won the People's Choice Award The wild and scenic Film Festival Mitch starts by explaining how the idea for the film was launched? A was just looking for a place to row my boat down a river. I Love Rivers. I really like my little dory boat and I live in truckee aunt kind of stumbled on the Sacramento as a place to do some overnight trips without having to drive halfway across the country to Utah. Colorado or Idaho so Several years ago my wife and I didn't overnight trip on a section of the upper for Sacramento where we through our bikes into the boats camped overnight and they invite the shuttle back up to the car and we had so much fun. And we were so enamored with with what we found down there that I started doing longer trips. and Um Tom and I done lots of adventures together. But we've never took advantage Jeff. Our professional lives. He's a videographer and has made lots of films so I started telling her friends. It's about the project down here on the Sacramento and Tom's ears perked up and he said found sounds very well. Maybe you should make a movie of IT and So just hopped in my boat and Loaded up with camera gear and some food and crackers and smoke cheese and took off below reading and Started in a two week journey down the SACRAMENTO Some of which I done before and below Qaluza all the way down into the Delta was was unknown unknown you. I know that people navigate this piece of river all the time but whether we could actually row it and make it out there we really have. I've no idea all heard that the winds were extreme down there that Might be a really difficult journey. And Good Luck. What is it that you wanted to share with people the Sacramento River? The big thing is this water belongs to all of us and people may not realize that it's public domain. It's the water is supposed has to be managed to use for the use that's most beneficial to the most number Californians and you know we know that's a simple concept and after after that everything gets really complicated because a lot of give and take in tug of war but we need to be wake watch. What's happening attention to what's going on Out there because it belongs to all of

"lake tahoe" Discussed on The Practical Wanderlust Podcast

"Not either need to put chains on your car or have have all wheel drive very important definitely recommend especially if you're renting a car. Just go for the four wheel drive. It's worth it because chains you can't rent them because you can't like reuse them you can by them along the way you can buy them along the way. They're fairly expensive. Depending on where you go you can get them cheaper if you get closer to chain control but you're just kind of rolling the dice there that they suck doc to put on this sucks so much to put on because you're just like in the snow putting on chains. It's the worst thing called. It is almost as bad as getting stuck there for four months and having. I'm sorry I couldn't almost that. I made it for math so these days. We go at least once a year at least sometimes more honestly eh usually bring a big group of friends and we get cabin. We gotta make sure that there's like a hot tub. Everybody brings snacks and cook a big meal together and have us go. Go to a ski resort. It's really fun. And it's like one of our favorite things to do. We actually just got back this last weekend. We went to a group of friends took ski. Listen I did. I took one ski. USN go cried like a lot. But I finished it. which was my goal? My number one goal was finished the ski lesson. My number to stretch goal was like don't cry so I didn't hit that goal but I did finish the ski lesson and I'm very proud of myself. You can see me being a majestic baby giraffe on skis on my instagram stories under the Tejo Highlight we usually go to South Lake Tahoe mainly because I really like Sierra The thing about Tahoe in the winter though is that in the summer are you can drive from north to south and that's totally fine and it's a beautiful drive and you should do it. It's a beautiful drive also beautiful hike but in the winter you have to commit to North or South because you can't. I usually take the highway route around because it's usually snowed in Yeah so we usually do. South Lake Tahoe but actually both of them are really nice. There's there's very similar things about both of them. Neither of them have like a very walkable. Downtown area I've heard truck. He is really cute but we haven't actually been neither of them had like amazing. Seizing food like Tom. Who is not a foodie destination? Hold on there's the German restaurant I do love the German Restaurant House House. You've never really good special there. It's like my favorite post hike post skiing now that I've done one ski lesson food. And those also Bob dog the dog a bout. It is pretty good pizza. But it's not it's not like a foodie place you don't go there for the food so honestly picking North or South Lake Tahoe depends entirely on which ski resorts you prefer. and which ones you're going to now. You should know before you go there if you're an east coaster who moved to California and you're like I have skied before you skied a hill. These are gigantic granite mountains mountains. And I say this as somebody who was born in Massachusetts and went to school in Massachusetts and. Yeah he's right it's totally different so there are a ton of ski resorts in Dachau and we can't cover them all here but we can talk about some of our favorites. What is your favorite mine? I always go back to his Sierra. Tahoe it has a special place in my heart mark. The first one I went to. It's the first major wine you hit when you're heading into South Lake and it's one of it's one of the cheaper options and they have a lot of really good I'd like beginner. And Intermediate runs their blues are a little bit easier than most places. So beginners have a lot there. it's also the least crowded. I don't think there's ever been a day where I've where I've waited more than two minutes for a ski lift. which is crazy yeah? It wasn't all this weekend and it's one of the only remaining independently owned ski resorts in Tahoe. Which is really nice? You can tell it's got that like family kind of vibe. It's not like one of the big crazy ones that has like the flashy village or whatever never in it's also sponsored by Subaru which has no bearing on your experience but I just think it's kind of a fun fact. Is that because we own a saber. Al Yes the Saverio belonged to my late grandmother who was also a Subaru Person. She was wonderful. See people we love them. There's boreal mountain boils like probably the most budget friendly but the thing about it is that they have have a freestyle terrain park. That does not sound like my cup of tea. There's there's runs. That aren't the train park. But that's like the main that most of them are terrain. And you pass right by the Donner Party Memorial morial on your way there take it back. We have to go there. That's my new favorite ski resort. I love free styling. I love people. I have to sleep next tonight. This is weird. There's home would which is on the West Shore. It's really small inexpensive and it's got the best view because it's right on the shore. That sounds sounds actually really nice. View is the priority. Then that's the choice for you. Yeah actually that sounds wonderful and last time we were at Costco because we always stop at Costco. Go to see if they have discount lift tickets usually they have Sierra tickets But this year they had homeward think. There's they've stopped carrying zero. It's hard to know but definitely stop by Costco to see if they have discount lift tickets because they usually got something home woods mostly intermediate. But it's still a fantastic option. Let about the Philly higher priced options. So so there's two that immediately come to mind when you think of Tahoe and that Squaw Valley and heavenly it is actually so having these avail L. resort probably the most famous in Tahoe. It's also the largest. It's got a couple of base lodges in one of them is actually in the town of South Lake. Tahoe if you like a walkable area with like shops and stuff heavenly village is definitely what you're looking for. They have a Gondola from the actual town. That's like on the main dragon. A teachable all the way up the mountain and it's right on the border with Nevada. So if you like casinos. They're right there for you. Listen we're going to be honest. We are very very biased towards the California side notice. We have not talked about the Nevada side at all 'cause casinos mostly sorry and then there's squad Alpine So a squad is like for serious people or people who WanNa get lost in Siberia It hosted the Winter Olympics in nineteen eighteen sixty. So that's like that gives you a gauge of how challenging the terrain can be. But it's you know it's like an all all levels resort because it's a major resort. I've actually heard that it's like a really early. Like advanced resort for people that are like very serious about being eighty ski montage stars. They do have beginner runs. But they're typically at the lower side of the mountain and then sugarbowl resort. I like sugar bowl resort because it is another independently owned resort and their claim to fame is being one of the oldest ski resorts in the West and having the deepest pissed and most ridiculous. No out of any of the tahoe resorts and also and this is fun. Little facts which is a semi related. It's located on Donner summit at Donner Pass whereas Donner Pass. Jeremy What does that have to do with We're just talking about. Do you do you everything to come back to the Donner Party. Everything has has to come back to the Donner Party. But also Disney which is my other obsession because Walt Disney was one of the original founders of this resort. That's going to be a trip soon. Actually that's GonNa that'd be the next episode. We're GONNA do it. There are some luxury ski resorts. Kirkwood northstar lovely. How are they couldn't tell you? Never been if you are the type of person who goes to luxury ski resorts. Please let us know how that is. How how that life is like? We are very curious. Now you might be asking like isn't Lake Tahoe. Oh always expensive and the answer is that it doesn't have to be. It really doesn't like you'd think that you know everybody going to Tahoe. Every weekend is super rich and yes. It's true skiing and snowboarding are not the cheapest sports but it doesn't have to be you. Don't have to go skiing snowboarding. While you're there you can go to a budget place and get a cheaper ticket. There are so many ways to make your trip to Tahoe. Oh affordable and the first step that is just google anything about budget tahoe winter and go to our website Yes that's so convenient that we have a giant practical guide ride to planning a lake tahoe winter trip on a budget or you can just click the link in the show notes that works so you might be asking. What else is there to do? If you're not into skiing skiing or snowboarding because you know Donna party breaking your leg all right have. We not moved on from the Donner Party. Jeremy it's just getting really annoying at this point and I wish he would stop. So there's sledding into being you can You can tube Sierra and you can rent the tube and go up this little moving sidewalk or or you can do it the hard way and by a to Amazon. They have some really fine line animals in silly shapes. There's like a fire dragon. He's Kinda my favorite and you can just like go to a good health so we went to spooner summit last year and just like walked up Capitol Hill and then tube down the Little Hill and It was a very good workout and also a lot of fun. There's also snowshoeing. Most of the major resorts will have snow shoe trails. uh-huh Kirkwood has like a whole snowshoeing center. Yeah which is basically just hiking but like legalizing on top of this now. She's pretty awesome. There's my favorite Tahoe in winter. Tippety which is just sitting in a hot tub if you're GONNA rent a cabin and Lake Tahoe which showed there are some available like VR B. O or AIRBNB. There are some. I'm pretty strict laws now surrounding that. But you can still find them and do not rent without a hot tub because they should have one that is like that is a requirement. I think that I think uh-huh some point it might have been state mandated that. Yeah Yeah it's actually part of the like contentious new laws about AIRBNB. Apparently some do she millennials from in the bay area where like enjoying themselves too loudly in the hot tub And that is why Verron out stricter restrictions so if you go to the hot tub you do so quietly also trying to slip on the stairs because I did last week and my entire but is black with bruises. Yeah it's rough speaking of falling on your but you can ice skating at heavenly village. That sounds Cathodic so hard. Pass on that. There's dog sledding. It's coie which sounds adorable. There's huskies that you can you can. Dog sled with sounds amazing. I'm not sure the ethical side of it though so you got to look at it. I'd have to do some research. I have been dog. sledding in Norway in it was ethical you can definitely have awesome ethically responsibly treated dogs but they are not. There's no consensus on whether dog sledding is ethical. It depends on the place so I can't tell you if they have been vetted or not. I have not done that research. If you want something that Leah will never do or I will never do you go cross country skiing Royal Gorge which is the largest cross country ski area. Are you in North America. I don't know why you would say that I would never do it because you should know that. I love Scandanavia one of my favorites. We've come full circle. I really do want to go back to Tahoe again.

"lake tahoe" Discussed on The Practical Wanderlust Podcast

"Valley being like. Ah We're going to do some coach. It was weird like Bay area thing. I thought you said we're going to do some coke later and then I realized you say code and I was like either one you. They're one area so it's tradition to stop at an in and out and it should be the UC Davis one. In my opinion there. Say Hi. It's also never as cold hold in the actual town. You'll go through this snowstorm because there's always like two miles of chains and it's always like this really like billowy snow and you're like Oh my God there's going to be snow in town and then you get there and it's it's like well but even when they're snow on the ground you can still walk outside and like not very many layers and it's just it's the weirdest thing it's like fifty degrees even when it's snowing rolling in town and the thing about going every single time you go with people especially a big group. There's somebody who's never been there. They always get scared because every time you go there you get a warning that there's a snowstorm that's going to come and it's every single time somebody like there's a storm coming in. I don't think we should drive up there this weekend. I mean to be fair. The snow warnings are terrifying. It's like there's GonNa be twenty six feet of snow expected you're going to have to turn back brings snacks grumble Bob doing so. No that's just my go-to go to accent. But it is. It's like really scary sounding and I get why but nowadays when we read the winter snow storm warning. We're like ooh. It's going to be nice and snowy. So you did mention chains and I think we need to talk about that. Chains are very very important. You can't drive to Lake Tahoe on a good weekend and not either need to put chains on your car or have have all wheel drive very important definitely recommend especially if you're renting a car. Just go for the four wheel drive. It's worth it because chains you can't rent them because you can't like reuse them you can by them along the way you can buy them along the way. They're fairly expensive. Depending on where you go you can get them cheaper if you get closer to chain control but you're just kind of rolling the dice there that they suck doc to put on this sucks so much to put on because you're just like in the snow putting on chains. It's the worst thing called. It is almost as bad as getting stuck there for four months and having. I'm sorry I couldn't almost that. I made it four minutes so these days we go at least once a year at least sometimes more honestly eh usually bring a big group of friends and we get cabin. We gotta make sure that there's like a hot tub. Everybody brings snacks and cook a big meal together and have us go. Go to a ski resort. It's really fun and it's like one of our favorite things to do. We actually just got back this last weekend. We went to a group of friends. You know and you took a ski. Listen I did. I took one ski. USN go cried like a lot. But I finished it. which was my goal? My number one goal was finished the ski lesson. My number to stretch goal was like don't cry so I didn't hit that goal but I did finish the ski lesson and I'm very proud of myself. You can see me being a majestic baby giraffe on skis on my instagram stories under the Tejo Highlight we usually go to South Lake Tahoe mainly because I really like Sierra The thing about Tahoe in the winter though is that in the summer are you can drive from north to south and that's totally fine and it's a beautiful drive and you should do it. It's a beautiful drive also beautiful hike but in the winter you have to commit to North or South because you can't. I usually take the highway route around because it's usually snowed in Yeah so we usually do. South Lake Tahoe but actually both of them are really nice. There's there's very similar things about both of them. Neither of them have like a very walkable. Downtown area I've heard truck. He is really cute but we haven't actually been neither of them had like amazing. Seizing food like Tom. Who is not a foodie destination? Hold on there's the German restaurant I do love the German Restaurant House House. You've never really good special there. It's like my favorite post hike post skiing now that I've done one ski lesson food. And those also Bob dog the dog a bout. It is pretty good pizza. But it's not it's not like a foodie place you don't go there for the food so honestly picking North or South Lake Tahoe depends entirely on which ski resorts you prefer. and which ones you're going to now. You should know before you go there if you're an east coaster who moved to California and you're like I have skied before you skied a hill. These are gigantic granite mountains mountains. And I say this as somebody who was born in Massachusetts and went to school in Massachusetts and. Yeah he's right it's totally different so there are a ton of ski resorts in Dachau and we can't cover them all here but we can talk about some of our favorites. What is your favorite mine? I always go back to his Sierra. Tahoe it has a special place in my heart mark. The first one I went to. It's the first major wine you hit when you're heading into South Lake and it's one of it's one of the cheaper options and they have a lot of really good I'd like beginner. And Intermediate runs their blues are a little bit easier than most places. So beginners have a lot there. it's also the least crowded. I don't think there's ever been a day where I've where I've waited more than two minutes for a ski lift. which is crazy yeah? It wasn't all this weekend and it's one of the only remaining independently owned ski resorts in Tahoe. Which is really nice? You can tell it's got that like family kind of vibe. It's not like one of the big crazy ones that has like the flashy village or whatever never in it's also sponsored by Subaru which has no bearing on your experience but I just think it's kind of a fun fact. Is that because we own a saber. Al Yes the Saverio belonged to my late grandmother who was also a Subaru Person. She was wonderful. See people we love them. There's boreal mountain boils like probably the most budget friendly but the thing about it is that they have have a freestyle terrain park. That does not sound like my cup of tea. There's there's runs. That aren't the train park. But that's like the main that most of them are terrain. And you pass right by the Donner Party memorial memorial on your way there. I take it back. We have to go there. That's my new favorite ski resort. I love free styling. I love people. I have to sleep next tonight. This is weird. There's home would which is on the West Shore. It's really small inexpensive and it's got the best view because it's right on the shore. That sounds sounds actually really nice. View is the priority. Then that's the choice for you. Yeah actually that sounds wonderful and last time we were at Costco because we always stop at Costco. Go to see if they have discount lift tickets usually they have Sierra tickets But this year they had homeward think. There's they've stopped carrying zero. It's hard to know but definitely stop by Costco to see if they have discount lift tickets because they usually got something home woods mostly intermediate. But it's still a fantastic option. Let about the Philly higher priced options. So so there's two that immediately come to mind when you think of Tahoe and that Squaw Valley and heavenly it is actually so having these avail L. resort probably the most famous in Tahoe. It's also the largest. It's got a couple of base lodges in one of them is actually in the town of South Lake. Tahoe if you like a walkable area with like shops and stuff heavenly village is definitely what you're looking for. They have a Gondola from the actual town. That's like on the main dragon. A teachable all the way up the mountain and it's right on the border with Nevada. So if you like casinos. They're right there for you. Listen we're going to be honest. We are very very biased towards the California side notice. We have not talked about the Nevada side at all 'cause casinos mostly sorry and then there's squad Alpine So a squad is like for serious people or people who WanNa get lost in Siberia It hosted the Winter Olympics in nineteen eighteen sixty. So that's like that gives you a gauge of how challenging the terrain can be. But it's you know it's like an all all levels resort because it's a major resort. I've actually heard that it's like a really early. Like advanced resort for people that are like very serious about being eighty ski montage stars. They do have beginner runs. But they're typically at the lower side of the mountain and then sugarbowl resort. I like sugar bowl resort because it is another independently owned resort and their claim to fame is being one of the oldest ski resorts in the West and having the deepest pissed and most ridiculous. No out of any of the tahoe resorts and also and this is fun. Little facts which is a semi related. It's located on Donner summit at Donner Pass whereas Donner Pass. Jeremy What does that have to do with We're just talking about. Do you do you everything to come back to the Donner Party. Everything has has to come back to the Donner Party. But also Disney which is my other obsession because Walt Disney was one of the original founders of this resort. That's going to be a trip soon. Actually that's GonNa that'd be the next episode. We're GONNA do it. There are some luxury ski resorts. Kirkwood northstar lovely. How are they couldn't tell you? Never been if you are the type of person who goes to luxury ski resorts. Please let us know how that is. How how that life is like? We are very curious. Now you might be asking like isn't Lake Tahoe. Oh always expensive and the answer is that it doesn't have to be. It really doesn't like you'd think that you know everybody going to Tahoe. Every weekend is super rich and yes. It's true skiing and snowboarding are not the cheapest sports but it doesn't have to be you. Don't have to go skiing snowboarding. While you're there you can go to a budget place and get a cheaper ticket. There are so many ways to make your trip to Tahoe. Oh affordable and the first step that is just google anything about budget tahoe winter and go to our website Yes that's so convenient that we have a giant practical guide ride to planning a lake tahoe winter trip on a budget or you can just click the link in the show notes that works so you might be asking. What else is there to do? If you're not into skiing skiing or snowboarding because you know Donna party breaking your leg all right have. We not moved on from the Donner Party. Jeremy it's just getting really annoying at this point and I wish he would stop. So there's sledding in tubing you can You can tube Sierra and you can rent the tube and go up this little moving sidewalk or or you can do it the hard way and by a to Amazon they have some really fine line. Animals in silly shapes. There's like a fire dragon. He's Kinda my favorite and you can just like go to a good health so we went to spooner summit last year and just like walked up Capitol Hill and then tube down the Little Hill and It was a very good workout and also a lot of fun. There's also snowshoeing. Most of the major resorts will have snow shoe trails. uh-huh Kirkwood has like a whole snowshoeing center. Yeah which is basically just hiking but like legalizing on top of this now. She's pretty awesome. There's my favorite Tahoe in winter. Tippety which is just sitting in a hot tub if you're GONNA rent a cabin and Lake Tahoe which showed there are some available like VR B. O or AIRBNB. There are some. I'm pretty strict laws now surrounding that. But you can still find them and do not rent without a hot tub because they should have one that is like that is a requirement. I think that I think uh-huh some point it might have been state mandated that. Yeah Yeah it's actually part of the like contentious new laws about AIRBNB. Apparently some do she millennials from in the bay area where like enjoying themselves too loudly in the hot tub And that is why Verron out stricter restrictions so if you go to the hot tub you do so quietly also trying to slip on the stairs because I did last week and my entire but is black with bruises. Yeah it's rough speaking of falling on your but you can ice skating at heavenly village. That sounds Cathodic so hard. Pass on that. There's dog sledding. It's coie which sounds adorable. There's huskies that you can you can. Dog sled with sounds amazing. I'm not sure the ethical side of it though so you got to look at it. I'd have to do some research. I have been dog. sledding in Norway in it was ethical you can definitely have awesome ethically responsibly treated dogs but they are not. There's no consensus on whether dog sledding is ethical. It depends on the place so I can't tell you if they have been vetted or not. I have not done that research. If you want something that Leah will never do or I will never do you go cross country skiing Royal Gorge which is the largest cross country ski area. Are you in North America.

I know we were just there two days ago days ago. It's been it's been a while I would like to go back really miss it you know. Yeah and while we were there I would like to go to The memorial please.

"lake tahoe" Discussed on The Practical Wanderlust Podcast

"Don't teach this in the history books and Kentucky you know because why would they should. But I'm so weirdly obsessed with it. It's just like tugs at my heartstrings. I don't know why so speaking of Tahoe and winter. That is the most awkward transition. Okay here's some Upbeat music to help with the transition. Look speaking of Tahoe and winter. It becomes this winter or wonderland and it's just the most beautiful place imaginable. It is like if you're not stuck there in a cabinet meeting everybody rates no okay. I'm sorry we're done we're done so they're actually some things that like. Nobody told me about John Before. I went in winter for the first time so okay. First starters. Driving talk from the bay area on a Friday night is like this big communal road trip like so everybody's paying attention to win Tahoe get snow and as soon as they get snow everybody grabs their friends. Friends grabs their boards jumps in the car and from like three. PM till like seven PM. It doesn't matter when you leave because you're still going arrive at eleven pm because of the traffic. It's like crazy. Yeah I always deny that. That's actually GonNa Happen and I'm always like we got to leave early. We got to leave early and then we arrive at our cabinet and our friends were like. Yeah we loved it like seven. We got here right before you. Yeah and it's like you're in this giant caravan of Bay area cars pretty much the whole time and everybody stops at the exact same place. which is the in and out in Davis and it's the best in and out on the whole route? You cannot okay. I agree that it's the best one but I still maintain that you only think that's tradition. Because we do it. I don't know you walk into that in and out and like the entire in and out it's like three college students being like a God Bay area people again and then like fifty five like eighty s montage ski brose from Blake Silicon Valley being like. Ah We're going to do some coach. It was weird like Bay area thing. I thought you said we're going to do some coke later and then I realized you say code and I was like either one. They're one area so it's tradition to stop at an in and out and it should be the UC Davis one. In my opinion there. Say Hi. It's also never as cold hold in the actual town. You'll go through this snowstorm because there's always like two miles of chains and it's always like this really like billowy snow and you're like Oh my God there's going to be snow in town and then you get there and it's it's like well but even when they're snow on the ground you can still walk outside and like not very many layers and it's just it's the weirdest thing it's like fifty degrees even when it's snowing pulling in town and the thing about going every single time you go with people especially a big group. There's somebody who's never been there. They always get scared because every time you go there you get a warning that there's a snowstorm that's going to come and it's every single time somebody like there's a storm coming in. I don't think we should drive up there this weekend. I mean to be fair. The snow warnings are terrifying. It's like there's GonNa be twenty six feet of snow expected you're going to have to turn back brings snacks grumble Bob doing so. No that's just my go-to go to accent. But it is. It's like really scary sounding and I get why but nowadays when we read the winter snow storm warning. We're like ooh. It's going to be nice and snowy. So you did mention chains and I think we need to talk about that. Chains are very very important. You can't drive to Lake Tahoe on a good weekend and not either need to put chains on your car or have have all wheel drive very important definitely recommend especially if you're renting a car. Just go for the four wheel drive. It's worth it because chains you can't rent them because you can't like reuse them you can by them along the way you can buy them along the way. They're fairly expensive. Depending on where you go you can get them cheaper if you get closer.

"Oh no you're just going to shoot at us in each other. Never mind so bad where you can Vilnai's them but also you know those status quo. Yeah they didn't. They were terrified right like the entire time. They were hiking along for several months. An indigenous peoples had basically been gently picking off their oxen oxen. One by one. And at this point they were very scared of the indigenous peoples but there are like archaeological records showing that the Indians had helped them so mm-hmm and then and then in April they made it out. There were ninety people in the Donner Party when they first started about ninety that we know of and and forty-three died. Wow that's brutal. This is one of the worst pioneer disasters one of the most brutal. But it's also been very well recorded so we mentioned the indifferent stars about. It's an excellent book. Also the last podcast on the left which we did a little shoutout to have an excellent episode about this. We actually highly recommend listening to it while you're driving to or from Lake Tahoe. It really sets the mood. We were driving back and we were. It was like right after a storm. So there's a ton of snow and we're just like blank stare driving listening to and then they'd cut out the liver of. That's not what they sound like. It's not at all like but it's so good it's really well done. I don't know why I have such weird fascination with the story. I'd never heard it before. I moved to California. Like they don't teach this in the history books and Kentucky you know because why would they should. But I'm so weirdly obsessed with it. It's just like tugs at my heartstrings. I don't know why.

"About his. Toes. Are, can't be found. Show. Okay the Ghost of Captain Dag will try to find your toes. I wonder how many dead bodies there actually are in Lake Tahoe I. Actually looked up and there are rumors that mobsters used to dispose of bodies in Lake Tahoe, and because the lake so deep and so cold, those bodies are still in perfect condition, just like at the bottom of the lake. That is creepiest. Fuck luckily is not actually true. A few years ago, a team of divers spent a month exploring the lake and find any bodies supposedly. There's an article in the Orange County Register with the very disappointing headline. Lake Tahoe underwater explorers find old boats and ancient trees, but no mobster bodies. No mobster bodies what Obama they also didn't find any sign of Tahoe. Tessie I'm sorry. Hilton hotels he tahoe's version of Nessie Loch ness monster. ADORABLE! That's so cute. Cute or haunted and frozen, so maybe there are frozen and preserved bodies floating around in the lake, but you gotta wonder like how hunted is Donohoe Oh. It's hell a haunted. Really, yes, so there's a hotel in northlake called the Tahoe biltmore and has a resident ghost Mary who like roams the halls, and it was the site of the Para retreat in two thousand eighteen. What is the Para retreat? It's the paranormal retreat, and it's like paranormal comic on I was thinking. It was like parachuting end if you will parachute into para con patriot. I would assume so, but they'd be wearing like a ghost costume. and that's so cute. We should go, so there's also the Helmet Erman Mansion on the West Shore. has they said that there's like a presence and everyone who works? There just feels energy they have to go and Viking Home Vikings home is haunted to, and the rumor is at. It's haunted by Mrs Nights Husband. Parties TANABE A-. I bludgeoned him to death with a key cattle. On him now yawns every tea party I have. Okay.

"Anxious for your safety so besides omens what is there to nothing less podcast over that was it. We just wanted to tell some stories about ourselves on the next episode. We're going to be talking Well let's talk about summer. I so by everything to do in Tahoe John. The summer is go camping. We mentioned deal bliss. It's like one of the best campsites in I think ever in the whole world it's awesome we might. I have an unfair opinion here because one time we rolled into. Dl Bliss like just trying to find a spot and we actually got the nicest campsite. They're probably ever just like show up at a spot you do. It's very competitive to get a spot and deal bliss what we usually do. There's something you can do on reservation dot Gov where you reserve federal campsites. It's you can basically choose your weekend and set up an alert and if somebody else cancels their spot you got their spot. So that's how we roll up with the best campsite because we had gotten somebody else's spot did actually book six months in advance. Like you have to do to get a good spot. All thanks goes but that was really really nice. There was like a bridge in the camp site which was awesome. And they're all right next next to the lake There is a beautiful private beach in that camp site. It's awesome it's really really nice. there's also Meeks Bay so many spe is Down on the shore of Lake Tahoe. And there's Meeks Bay resort. You can camp there as well and that's kind of like right across the street from sort of one of our favorite hikes which we'll talk about In a minute so you get the campsite on the beach and then What are some things that you like to do over there? Well obviously there. Is the beach like tacos awesome beaches. I mean and this like we say that coming from California Allegra we just got beaches on beaches all over the place both sides. It's awesome And you can swim swimming. A swimming area Out like all right off the shore basically basically it is a little cold but compared to the Pacific Ocean. It's actually not that bad people actually rent boats and you can go boating. Yeah we haven't been fancy and acting like a big you know schooner sooner sooner sooner or yacht are those those things are called. We've never had a We have gotten kayaks though which which is great kayaking is one of my favorite things to do when they tahoe and supping. Yeah you can do stand up paddle boarding. Yeah we did that what happened. Do you remember what happened. Do you remember what happened. Tell me about what happened. What happened Leo was was better at it than you? The person who can't even stand up straight because her balances so bad was better at stand up paddle boarding. Yes the world is then. I tried it again in Panama and I was really bad at it. And you're way better at it but I was better at it in Tahoe. And that's what matters you'll talk to you about it in Panama. Yeah well it only happened once. But that's why I stand up. Paddle boarding in lake. Tahoe is the best in the world. 'cause let me twice and I was better at it in Lake Tahoe You can also go waterfall hopping. There's like waterfalls all over the place I was GonNa make a joke but then I realized that we did that in the episode description of the title of the episode episode. Last time. I know as long as you don't make me waterfall. Repel I'm good. Tell me about these waterfalls world. Luckily they're smaller than you're used to. Eagle falls is an Emerald Bay. It's there's a little alcove in the lake on the southwest side and and It's a short hike of a hill and you'll just follow the crowds from the Emerald Bay parking lot it's really pretty And it's really like a very quick hike. We say very quick and we're the ones saying quick. He knows actually probably like a one minute. Walk if you're in the south there's also horse tail waterfall. So it's on your way into South Lake Tahoe. The actual town It's eight hundred feet tall and so it's the largest one On thank you. It's the largest one in the area and there's Glen Alpine falls which is right about Fallen Leaf Lake where I've actually gone in hiking a few times around fallen leaf lake and it's cute little ache much smaller than Lake Tahoe. But absolutely beautiful but that one is cool because the water kinda like cascades down these little cliffs so it has has like that waterfall staircase look which really like. Looks like a damn screen saver and you are a really serious hiker. You can attempt the Tahoe rim trail. So let me just give you the backpacker spiel about Tahoe rim. So backpacker describes it as a great long trail for beginners or a laid-back laid-back. Walk in the woods for seasoned Thru Hikers. That sounds perfect for actually. Yeah it's one hundred and sixty five miles long over mind cause all the way around the lake but the good news is there are a lot of places where you can stop and the cop off your hiked. Lots of towns stopping got refuels so it actually does sound like a fairly beginner entry level through hake AAC And it takes about ten to fifteen days though honestly like if we can get back in our hiking I would not mind doing it. Sounds pretty awesome. Actually I really liked desolation wilderness. Elder nece what's it called the solution. That sounds johnstone sounds scary. I was imagining fog everywhere and being lost in like a murky haunted forest filled with like rabid bears fresh carcasses like this is going weirdly. Donner Friday thing. Just let it go all right. Just hold on a few minutes. I was expecting slender Mandalay. Give me directions but actually it's it's gorgeous and really stunning scenery. Probably the most money scenery in Lake Tahoe. Oh yeah there are like a bunch of charred trees which does give it like that creepy. Feel that I was really wanting Because there was a wildfire that went through a while ago please be safe about your fires. y'All leave no trace race but actually no. It's it's stunning gorgeous. And we did that hike. Do you remember Meeks Bay to cry. Lake which is like nine miles round trip desolation wilderness is actually a really big stretch of land so the great thing about it is that you can kind of do an out and back over you want so. We chose Craig Lake. Yes startling across the street from the campsite Meeks Bay and when we started. Actually it was foggy Augie like we had a little bit of that ownby all scary fog which was fantastic. Everything was a little bit eerie. So we just kind of hiked into desolation wilderness nine miles and a and we climbed all the way up. We want some rocky granite cliffs which is a tongue twister Saudis George views and. Then we started hitting these lakes like one. After a- another there was all these Alpine lakes about five miles in you start hitting them and we wanted to stop it every single one of them. They were all gorgeous. I know we didn't think that it could possibly get more gorgeous. This but Craig Lake is the best one every other Alpine Lake is inferior to Craig Lake worth continuing. Its in. This valley created by mountain peaks and the lake is just a perfect mirror. It's so instagram. I know we had lunch there. And then we head back and it was perfect. My other favorite favorite hike in Lake Tahoe. I think this one is actually like the one to rule them. Aw Is Rubicon trail so rubicon trail starts at dl bliss. It's about another like nine mile round trip very similar so you basically we started using bliss. You're going to hike all the way down from because the Elvis is far above up on the cliffs above Lake Tahoe. You're going to hike down until you got to assure sure through all these like pine trees and granite with just stunning views. Because you're along the Tahoe shoreline but above it. So you're GonNa have all these beautiful views of Lake Tahoe the whole time. Then you're going to get all the way down there There's GonNa be like these meadows that you go through and then you're just gonNA hit a random Norwegian castle and you can get some ice cream there. Yeah which is a wonderful midway point to hike before they go back. There is a Norwegian castle in the middle of the hike. Yeah so it's called Vikings Home Castle which which I feel like if you're gonNA make a Norwegian castle and stick it in the middle of Lake Tahoe that's exactly what you should call it And it's located right along the shores of Emerald Bay. Why okay so so long story? Short rich people tracks. So there's this guy named Ben Holiday and that is his actual name And he decided to build the first summer home in Lake Tahoe.

After a- another there was all these Alpine lakes about five miles in you start hitting them and we wanted to stop it every single one of them. They were all gorgeous. I know we didn't think that it could possibly get more gorgeous. This but Craig Lake is the best one every other Alpine Lake is inferior to Craig Lake worth continuing. Its in. This valley created by mountain peaks and the lake is just a perfect mirror. It's so instagram. I know we had lunch there. And then we head back and it was perfect. My other favorite favorite hike in Lake Tahoe. I think this one is actually like the one to rule them. Aw Is Rubicon trail so rubicon trail starts at dl bliss. It's about another like nine mile round trip very similar so you basically we started using bliss. You're going to hike all the way down from because the Elvis is far above up on the cliffs above Lake Tahoe. You're going to hike down until you got to assure sure through all these like pine trees and granite with just stunning views. Because you're along the Tahoe shoreline but above it. So you're GonNa have all these beautiful views of Lake Tahoe the whole time. Then you're going to get all the way down there There's GonNa be like these meadows that you go through and then you're just gonNA hit a random Norwegian castle and you can get some ice cream there. Yeah which is a wonderful midway point to hike before they go back. There is a Norwegian castle in the middle of the hike. Yeah so it's called Vikings Home Castle which which I feel like if you're gonNA make a Norwegian castle and stick it in the middle of Lake Tahoe that's exactly what you should call it And it's located right along the shores of Emerald Bay. Why okay so so long story? Short rich people tracks. So there's this guy named Ben Holiday and that is his actual name And he decided to build the first summer home in Lake Tahoe.

"lake tahoe" Discussed on The Practical Wanderlust Podcast

"We are talking about arguably my favorite place on earth and that's Lake Tahoe for that. You are going to home where you live with your wife but wow okay. Tahoe's cool as standby if someone were to make a California bucket list. I think that Tahoe should be on it twice twice twice twice once for winter and once for summer well that makes sense. You know what I always say though. The best time to visit Lake Tahoe is any time other than the winter of eighteen forty saks. We are not a minute in and you've already made a Donner Party joke less and if you think that this entire episode is not actually about my obsession with Donner party you are completely wrong or try to keep uh-huh a dull roar by well. I'm going to do my best. I promise less party jokes. So here's the question. Why why is everybody so obsessed with Lake Tahoe? Like I you know. I didn't grew up in California and it wasn't like I knew about it but I think I always thought of it as like Lake placid like that one movie. You know what I mean. There's just alligators waiting to eat. You didn't know anything about it. So why is it such a thing. Here it's just like this glorious lake in the middle of the Sierra Nevada's you like go over the Ridge and it's just this huge blue water towering behind trees Alpine meadows it's gorgeous. You don't even mentioned the granite. You really take for granted don't you. I Call Dibs on that joke before we started recording. Wording and I'm a little salty about it well should have made it. It is actually. It's a giant lake the largest lake in the US that isn't a great lake and just for the fact checkers out there by volume. Look it up. It's on Wikipedia. We did some deep research. We did very very much research. Yeah and the great thing about Tahoe is that it's it's good for summer and winter. It's got these beautiful beaches and crystal clear water ridiculously clear but it's also ridiculously cold And and then in the winter it's like some of the best slopes in the country. People actually like professionals actually go out there to experience. It professionals ski as yes. You know the people that have it really rough. Yeah you know what I what I always think of. When we talk about professional scares is like eighty ski montages? There's like the Ragtag group at the cabin who have to take on the local ski team and it's.

"Well come to the wild west podcast. Today I'm very excited to welcome. My Guest Troy Caldwell. Troy is a former pro skier. Who as a young man bought this incredible piece of property? The Lake Tahoe Mountains. It's right between squaw valley and Alpine meadows to of Tahoe's Premier Ski Resorts and for the past thirty years. Troy has has been planning and plotting about how to use the land to develop his dream backyard ski area and he calls the whole thing. White Wolf every riskier and Tahoe has heard of White Wolf. Troy is something of a local legend in the area. And he's been pushing this idea for three decades so people know about it but he only recently submitted submitted his big proposal of this project to Plaster County for review. And so after all this time of hearing about this thing people finally get to see see what troy actually wants to build. So here's the basic overview. It'd be a private ski area with two chairlifts thirty home units. What's this fifty thousand square foot lodge and then other amenities around like a tennis court and a warming hut and an ice skating rink and stuff like that? It's the kind of place that troy wants to live in. We decided coming from the ski industry and living in the ski industry and wanting to be involved with. Is it that We wanted it to something that we felt comfortable. Living with the really fun thing about White Wolf is that is key to this huge huge plan that squall Alpine the neighboring resorts have to build a Gondola through the mountains that connects the two resorts. So that Gondolo would need to have a mid station and the best place for that is troy's White Wolf property so once this happens it could effectively link these two big excuse resorts through Troy's property and opened up more terrain for skiers on the same lift ticket. Some people think that this kind of infrastructure development represents the future of Lake Tahoe ski industry. You got to open up more ski terrain between these big resorts and then effectively. You could create these. A Big Ski. Touring corridors kind of similar to what you see in the mountains of Europe. There's a lot to unpack your about. What's going on so the other day? I drove up to Troyes property property to hike around and get the whole lowdown on how this all might work so without further ado. Here's Troy Caldwell..

California Businesses Face Another Round of Blackouts

"A fire in Sonoma's county sparked on Wednesday has grown quickly fueled by strong winds and dry conditions forcing the evacuation of hundreds of residents in northern California the fire is now burning over ten thousand acres and threatens to endanger area ranches and wineries the heightened risk of fire has also forced California Utility PG and e. to begin another round of blackouts the utility says it will cut power to one hundred seventy nine Zain customers that's far fewer than the seven hundred fifty thousand whose power was cut in the last wave of blackouts earlier this month but residents and businesses are struggling our Jim Carlton checked in with some of them and joins me now from San Francisco so jim when we think of businesses that might be most impacted by these blackouts. I think obviously people in the food business come to mind restaurants that have to make sure they have fresh food and then grocery stores who have to ensure that it's stored properly but you spoke to us their businesses ranging all over the map including art galleries tell us what you heard from small businesses amid these blackouts you come across the board they're talking about pretty a surprising amount of losses I talked to a custom framing gallery in California and that's kind of a cute tourist town on on the way to Lake Tahoe surrounded by beautiful trees pine trees and in the summer the shops are filled with tourists and whatnot and also in the winter when skiers went up and I talked to Daniel Anderson who owns pop art custom gallery in he said that they lost during the shutdown two thousand dollars a day and lost business and not only that but also lost you know the some of these people won't give referrals so it's kind of lost potential businesses well and so in all he lost about eight thousand dollars so as a pretty significant blow to him and what are you hearing from restaurants and people in the food business about efforts to preserve their product accent what they're struggling with y'all so there's another grocery of cold mill creek grocery and they had problems last a lot of groceries. I think the California Grocers Association estimated that the losses of something like three hundred dollars to one thousand dollars per day on the small markets you know lost produce and whatnot there's actually a company that the new leaf community markets in Santa Cruz County they have portable refrigerated trucks and they would go around and try to do you know save as much merchandise as they could but I mean so really I mean the groceries though have a very hard time because they have so many items comes in so many perishables and the bigger chains railly's is a big chain out of West Sacramento they have generators you'll safeway they have writers about these small mom and pops they may have a generator but might not be big enough to really absorb the impact Jim overall our business owner's feeling amid what might become a new normal for them. PGE has said it plans to continue doing these blackouts win high winds become a risk they are super angry I mean I mean I've heard this from the residents but I mean the the businesses are just like you know I mean the first shutdown was hard enough on them and you know and get that they don't want I mean I mean of course it's preferable to a wildfire destroying their community but you know like you know Daniel interests telling me I mean this this is not our fault this PG. appea- Jenny didn't make the necessary investments in the pinion of him and many other people in the state to prevent US equipment from igniting wildfires and so now these businesses are having to pay and this is the worst part is that they really can't get reimbursed is kind of a gray area the you know there's insurance they don't think it's going to cover all the losses governor Gavin Newsom did propose PG handout checks of two hundred fifty dollars per business to compensate them for the losses from the last outage and Miss Anderson call that a slap in the face it's just a drop in the bucket in almost an insult so they're not happy and how is pg responding to those concerns each time that CEO Bill Johnston addresses the press he's been doing nightly press briefings at their headquarters in downtown San Francisco he's always quick with an apology he also points out he's only been on the job six months but he's looking forward not backwards but they acknowledge that you know things could have been better the pass they're looking towards the future and you know he says these planned power shutdowns are necessary to prevent another catastrophe like you know wiped out the town of Paradise last year so they're kind of between a rock and a Hard Place Wall Street Journal reporter Jim Carlton Joining us from San Francisco thank you so much Jimmy thanks

Rescued girl was target in abduction that left parents dead, police say

"It's not very common. But it does. In fact, happen. I think of when we start thinking about these stories I start thinking well. God bless this woman. Like, I said she is a young girl who was going to be brought. Well, where not home, but her she's got a grandfather that I saw interviewed. I don't know if grandma's ally. But grandpa is so that's her family, and she has an aunt. That is the I dunno sister of her father or mother, but an aunt that is also responding to all of this. So she has family, but her mother and father are dead. And again, I cannot imagine. But I just assume the worst one I think about what happened to this young girl. Thirteen years old. And the guy who abducted her is a twenty one year old guy. From Gordon Wisconsin. Gordon is about an hour north of where she lived. I don't know. What is wrong with this guy? He does not have a criminal history. He's not employed. He you know, you can look at the mug shot of the guy, and you go he looks kind of well, whatever I don't judge people on their looks. But what Jamie did was she got out of the house that he was keeping her in which was in a very rural area in northern Wisconsin. And this area. Is mostly it's on a on a lake. And it is apparently populated during the summertime, but during the wintertime, most of the homes are empty now. I don't know if this was his house, but it was sixty five miles north of where she was last seen. So she comes out of the house on foot. There was a woman walking by the area walking her dog. And this girl came out of the house screaming help me help me. Well, apparently in that part of Wisconsin this young girl's face has been plastered all over the area. She was -ducted in October. So it's been four months, but the people they're all said, oh, yeah. We all know all about that. And when they when this woman was walking the dog saw her she knew immediately who she was she took the girl and went to a neighbor's house banged on the door, and Peter Casson Khusein Casse who was the neighbor opened his front door to find his neighbor standing there with this disheveled, girl. I was seeing a ghost because we've seen the billboards and the commercials and all that and there she is in my kitchen. He said she appeared thin and ragged wearing what looked like leggings a sweatshirt and oversized men's tennis shoes. And it was about fifteen minutes until the police arrive. She sat there very quietly they offered her food water. She didn't want anything they had a puppy. In the house, and they brought the puppy to her and like dogs little puppies will do she cheered up holding this little puppy. But her parents were shot to death in their home in October fifteenth, and she has been found alive there. What what what's why I want to talk about this is because I cannot help. But think. There are others that are being held right now. They're all they are are on some list of missing people. We don't know who they are. We don't see I don't even know. Our milk cartons still a thing. Yeah. They are. But I don't remember they used to put photos of missing children on on. No cartons. Why did why did that stop? I know they're plastic now. But can't you put they put signs? I don't know they plaster their their logo on there, saying the XYZ milk company. One percent two percent, whatever it might be. So this is a very troubling story. The woman who found her asked that her name not be used because she was very unnerved by the dramatic events of the day. All she said is Jamie came up to me and said she wanted help. So she was pretty sure who the girl was most everyone who lives in Wisconsin. Has seen her photo over and over and over and over, and there is no doubt. When Jamie gave her name, and they made their way quickly to this casts and cast house a neighbor's house. The area is in the Oakland acres cluster about thirty homes originally built about fifty years ago. It's cabins along the river. But like I said most of the homes are not occupied during the winter sparsely populated about eight miles east of this little town of Gordon. It's hilly. It's heavily forested. And the homes are set back in the trees. So she got away, but I cannot help but think. These are great stories when they happen. But there was Elizabeth smart who was taken from her home. In the middle of the night and found a couple years later. I think something like that. There was the kidnapping of jas J C Dugard from Lake Tahoe. And it was she was eleven when she was found when she was adopted. She was twenty nine with two children when she was found the guy who objected her and his wife. Impregnated her and has two children from this guy who abducted her. So that was an Antioch California where she was found so Cleveland, Ohio Ariel Castro abducted three well, one young woman in two underage girls. Michelle Knight, Amanda, berry, and Gina. Zeh who's who's kidnapped by Ariel Castro and held captive in his home started in two thousand two and finally one of them escaped in two thousand thirteen. So this Ariel Castro was found guilty sent off to prison and the coward that he has he committed suicide a month later. But this the guy Mr. Castro worked as a bus driver for the Cleveland school district. And they were all kidnapped after accepting a ride from him. Michelle. Knight was twenty one years old at the time. Amanda, berry was the day before her seventeenth birthday and Gina the hey who's was fourteen. So I just look at this, and I go this is a good story. This is a feel good story. But it doesn't feel all that good. Because I think she doesn't have her parents to go home to. I don't know how. How she was able to even function to get out of this place in but be there for four months. The others have been held longer. And then I I just know that there are missing persons that people have given up on. And you know, that there is some freak out there who has these people these young girls, mostly not all some boys held in some basement somewhere. And I can't help. But wonder do we pay any attention to our neighbors? Do we know member of the family in southern California wars at ten kids twelve kids there were their children, but they were shackled in their home. Nobody knew. Are we watching our neighbors?

"lake tahoe" Discussed on San Francisco Chronicle Business & Technology News - Spoken Edition

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. South lake tahoe's measure to ban vacation rentals squeaks to victory by Kathleen Pender from business a ballot measure to ban all AK shin home rentals in south lake tahoe's, residential neighborhoods after three years and reduce their occupancy. Limits almost immediately has passed by a margin of fifty eight votes. The elder auto county elections department announced Tuesday, the city council plans to meet Monday to accept the final results of the November election. Ten days later measure t will take affect said, Chris fury. A spokesman for the city any voter can demand and pay for a recount, but that doesn't seem to be in the works despite the measures thin majority of fifty point four two percent. We've talked about a recount, but I don't believe we're going to ask for one said Jerry Williams, president of these sustainable community alliance. A group of home and business owners who opposed measure t where disappointed in the outcome. But. Remained committed to working with city leaders in protecting jobs and tourism, the measure can only be overturned or modified by another vote. Williams said his group has not discussed of subsequent ballot measure, and he's not heard if anyone is planning a lawsuit to challenge measure t the measure applies to homes rented for thirty days or less outside the city's tourist core. The core generally runs along highway fifty from ski run boulevard to state line. There are about fourteen hundred short term rentals outside the core. And only four hundred inside the voters have spoken, and we respect that fury said don't we think we can do is wait for the fiscal shoe to drop that has been our concern all along what it will do monetarily to the city of south Lake Tahoe. The city estimated that it could lose up to four million dollars a year in tourist taxes and other fees. A group of residents called Tahoe neighborhoods group gathered enough signatures to place the measure on the ballot although homes in the city have been rented to. Locations for decades their numbers have increased with the growth of rental sites such as Airbnb and VR -bio measure t opponents said tourists don't belong in neighborhoods zoned as residential. They say visitors disturb their peace and make it harder. For fulltime residents to find housing, are you go. The city limited vacation home rentals to fourteen hundred outside the tourist core and imposed stiff rules and fines aimed at cracking down on loud parties parking problems and late night. Hot tub us opponents of measure tease said these were working, but many neighbors were still unhappy. Our mission was to get this in front of the voters. We felt the broader community hadn't been listened to said Peggy Borland a member of the neighborhood group. Their victory is a caution for our community and all communities. She said a similar ballot measure in Pacific grove near Monterey passed with fifty seven point five percent of the vote that measure will prohibit short term rentals in residential areas outside the coastal zone and face out existing. Ones within eighteen months. The California coastal commission plans and regulates land and water use along the state's shoreline, excluding the San Francisco Bay in partnership with local governments the commission opposes blanket vacation rental bands along the coast and is found them inconsistent with the state coastal act because they unduly limit public recreational access opportunities. It said in a December twenty sixteen letter to coastal communities in del mar a south of San Diego, the city council adopted an ordinance that would limit short term rentals in residential areas to twenty eight days per year with a minimum stay of seven days the commission refused to certify the ordinance proposing. Instead a minimum stay of three days for up to one hundred days per year. The city council has taken legal action challenging the Commission's authority some states have taken stronger steps to limit local authority on short term rentals. Arizona Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Tennessee, and Wisconsin have enacted legislation prohibiting short term. Rental bands. The national council of state legislature said in a report in south Lake Tahoe. The fourteen hundred homeowners with existing vacation home permits in non-core neighborhoods can continue to operate them for three years those permits cannot be transferred to anyone including a new owner wants measure t takes effect the city can issue. No new permits outside the core. After December thirty first twenty twenty one anyone still operating a bake ation home rental outside the core will have to stop although they could rent it for more than thirty days. At a time measure t also reduces occupancy limits on short term rentals outside the core. Effective December twentieth. The current limit two people per bedroom, plus four per home will shrink to two per bedroom. Period. And no home can have more than twelve occupants fury said the city will issue permits that reflect the new occupancy limits by January seventh, but that it will enforce them the same way we did before the city response only when it gets a complaint the. Will give affected owners until January seventh to bring their ads and property signs into compliance with the new limits. Michael Keller, a real estate broker and owner of Keller properties in south lake. Tahoe said the cap imposed last December and uncertainty over measure t have already impacted the market, especially large homes designed for families and groups after the city imposed the fourteen hundred home limit last December the waiting list for vacation home permits grew to about two years. He said he listed a newly built seven bedroom. Six thousand square foot home on Regina road near the base of heavenly ski resort at two point two five million dollars in August twenty seventeen after seven price cuts. It's now listed at one point five five million dollars at that price. The owner an investor who built it as a -cation rental would take a substantial loss color said the majority of the buyer pool for that type of property has disappeared a new owner could rent it out for more than thirty days at a time. But it's not the kind of. Property that would be turned into workforce housing lower and moderate priced homes have been less affected because many people who buy them as a second home may rent them out as a sideline they also could be more easily converted to fulltime rentals. Evan golden lives in Menlo Park. But couldn't afford to buy a home there. So he bought one in south Lake Tahoe. Instead he and his wife use it about half the air and rented short term the other half in the five years. He's owned it. He's had no violations and paid the city about fifty thousand dollars in taxes and fees. I'm really disappointed and worried about the future of south Lake Tahoe. The whole it will blow in the budget and all the businesses that have started up in the last few years golden said personally, it's disheartening to have my property rights taken away. We're not some giant company just one married. Couple that owns one home and are not sure what to do measure t does not impact homes outside the south Lake Tahoe limits, but El Dorado county is also discussed imposing a moratorium or. On vacation home rentals in unincorporated areas from an economic standpoint that can have some of the same effect as an outright ban Keller said.

"You get in bed? Yeah, I try to read and it just sort of my mind wanders little bit. And and like you could say, well, you're relaxing yourself, and it's good to be relaxed, and that is a pop, perhaps a valid argument. But it sure feels like I have a whole lot more time when I don't drink at night. I do almost. Recently the summer jazz, our has turned into. Pushing the stroller around the Lake Tahoe wake. Yeah. And you know sometime not definitely not every time, but it's maybe once a week or something we'll we'll make cocktail and with us. And. Always on those evenings. You know if I had plans to do something else to get some things done outside or to Mark or whatever, you know they never happened. We end up just, you know, hanging out or watching a movie you. Yeah, and that might be good, especially if it's once a week or whatever the amount is that you deem appropriate because it's really good to not to have some amount of like not being productive because you truly just enjoying the company of someone else or relaxing. So I'm not saying that it's a bad thing. I just think it's valuable to know that and then I realized that it comes at a cost and might might benefit probably the answer is somewhere in the middle, not necessarily for drinks, but you know, in terms of things that help you relax versus things that keep you in your most productive state. In addition to that the morning also find that if I don't drink the night before, even if I'm, you know, I'm not not definitely not could be hung over for like two glasses of wine or whatever. It's from the night before, but. Much less likely to wake up on time to go for my. Winning run or to wake up, and you know, do some writing first thing in the morning or be productive in some way, get home. That's I don't even think of that. But just about any amount of alcohol, I feel like affects my sleep in some way or another, and you don't necessarily attributed up the next morning, but I do think that you know there's a little bit of minutes of lost productivity for sure. Yes, definitely. I love. I love me last one and the harder stuff as well. The serious drugs they can somehow speed and whatever else you can actually be more productive with that stuff. Yeah, actually tend to do my best work when I'm so that's one of our axes find that drug that really's beat you up. And then this is new. This is where do we do indoors. Really. I think I think anything that's up in any message with about, I think almost certainly comes at a cost and it will result in a crash. At some point, there's very little free lunches when it comes to energy, what about much? That's the new free thing, right? No crash. Is that right? Gotcha. Much agreeing t have been seeing some stuff about that recently. I don't believe it that energy came from somewhere. I agree. Maybe it was unlocked in your cells. It was locked up locked. It Cole. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, if macho I don't think has much in terms of caloric values, what's not giving you energy in that sense, it's been speeding your body up and even if you don't experience a crash later, there is adrenal fatigue and all that stuff that happens. And I, I don't know, also love coffee, but I don't pretend that energy doesn't get paid back late in the day by being slightly more tires. Do you do any of the mushroom stew. Talking about hard drugs. The mushroom coffee or tea? I don't. I think it might be good idea for different reasons. I think I think mushrooms are really good food, but I just would rather eat them. I just don't want them to my coffee. I don't know. We coke with a few times a week probably, and I think that's all right. But I think people do sit does that right? Is needed mushroom something. Yeah, I think so. Maybe I don't know. Yeah, I see people the thumper food guys do it. Oh, yeah, that's right. Maybe that's one I'm thinking. Have you have you done it? No, I haven't. Nowhere to get it. I guess you can get a hold. It sounds a lot like between about. You gotta talk to the guy at the end of the corner, mushroom guy..
