My New Home

After care taking for my dad for 14 years I've relocated him to the Napa Valley, and now that I'm free I've made up my mind to live at a lower elevation during the cold winter months.  Ever since high school I've chased the storms around the world in search of powder.  In fact I have devoted 32 years of my life to snowboarding, 10 of those being a top professional.  I'm done with owning a home at 5,000 ft.  All the plowing, the blowing, and the shoveling can suck hind tit for all I care!

I now call Nevada City my home and things are good.  I've got my sweet heart, my heeler by my side, and a good solid house.  There's something strange here, there are actual services!  Anything I want can be found here and I don't have to go to Reno or Quincy!  There is water to fish, and Donner Summit is 40 minutes away to get my pow fix.  I'll still be guiding in Plumas, Lassen, and Sierra counties from May until the rivers close and the lakes ice up - When you have spent hundreds upon hundreds of days on water you know, walking away just can't be done during fishing season.  Nope, you just look to the future and hope for the best.......

  1. Nevada City is awesome! And the lower Yuba is just on the other side--big trout and steelhead in that section. Plus, the National Hotel is a great place to drink when it's cold. My dad and I used to fish a small lake close to there called, "Strawberry Lake-or Strawberry pond???? Anyway, it was loaded with trout. Next season I have to fish with you, we have family in the area so we go at least once a year. Are you in one of those way cool Victorians?

  2. Thanks, I'm really happy here! I'm not in one of those cool Victorians but a solid built home that my girlfriend's dad built in the early 70's.
