Ponderings and conversation about rights, responsibility, and privilege seem to swirl among us humans and our inhabitance of “our” pocket of the Sierra.
This month’s question is: What does it mean to be a Truckee/Tahoe local?
Anybody who wants to come up here and live and take care of the land and be respectful to our neighbors.
A true local is someone born and raised here. But other than that I would also consider someone who has been a resident for over a year and through at least one big winter.
Dirty feet, sunburns, and dog hair.
Loads of memories from the Truckee/Tahoe area
I prefer to not get too hung up on the definition of a local, and instead focus on treating other people and the environment with respect and love and understanding, which I think Truckee people do pretty well. I kinda wanted to throw something in with nature — having a sense of awe for these amazing, natural surroundings.
