Here’s a snapshot of a conversation we’ve been having for 6 years now. “Well this sucks, I’m missing General Hospital!” Me- “How’s the weather?” H- “Oh it sucks today.  Glassy lake, blue skies, 70s” Me- “Wow that does suck?” or H- “What did… Read More ›

Welcome to Tahoe Sux- Dedicated to Outdoor Adventures in Tahoe

“Adventures on Water, Snow, Peaks and Trails” That Pretty much sums up the Tahoe Sux blog. It’s an idea that has been simmering for some time.  We’ve been in Tahoe for 6 years now, and trying to live the outdoor mountain lifestyle to the fullest.  Our lives can pretty much be summed up as follows: … Read More ›
