What makes a Tahoe local? Is it living here for five years? Ten years? Acquiring the three “Ds”? (If you know, you know). When I first moved here in 2010, that was always a question I asked myself, and it was always a topic of debate. It’s a subject that comes with some static, whether it be serious, or in jest. Most of you reading this right now have probably lived here long enough to consider yourself one, or maybe not. Either way, we all learn quite a bit tailoring our lives to the rules of these mountains. It’s not easy to survive in Tahoe. We have high gas prices, rough winters, no housing, and low paying jobs. No matter how long we’ve been here, we’ve all gained some knowledge to share. This month, Moonshine Ink hits the mean streets of North Lake Tahoe to ask our locals, “What advice would you give to a Lake Tahoe newcomer?”
