This month’s question occurred to me as I was chipping ice off my driveway. On this brisk morning, I was glad to be gripping a metal tool that had slept overnight in the warm house, meaning it wasn’t sucking all the heat from my hands. I selfishly wondered what other clever practices people used, that I could poach, to make life easier in our winter playground. It was a pleasantly intriguing surprise to find that many answers were more philosophical than physical.
The #DoTell question of March is: What’s your go-to tip, trick, or life hack for living in the Tahoe/Truckee area? ~ TC
Walk slow in the snow.
If you live in a van, you don’t have to pay rent.
Don’t expect city stuff around here. Prepare to do things for yourself, and then be glad if you find someone you can pay to do something for you.
Go naked whenever you can and skinny dip in the lake every month.
Work to live, don’t live to work; otherwise, you’ll miss all the beauty around here.
And remember, we’re on mountain time.
