Tahoe & Seattle Sendoff: 2.08.17 – 2.27.17

After the chaos of wrapping up our jobs, moving, getting visas, and finalizing some of our travel plans, we headed to Tahoe for two weeks to say goodbye to our Tahoe family and then to Seattle to say goodbye to our friends and family in the Northwest.

We enjoyed some incredible powder days at Squaw and Alpine, a few sunny groomer days, a couple last chill sessions down by the lake, and backcountry tours up Rubicon and Maggie’s Peak North.

It was hard to say goodbye to these people and this place! It has been an amazing complement to our lives in the Bay Area for the last four years.  The only thing that makes leaving tolerable is knowing that we’ll always be able to come back.

Finally got to meet the Squaw dogsled teams!

Then it was off to Seattle to wrap up a few final business items and say goodbye to our friends and family.

Going to miss these people! And Northwesty microbrews… It was especially hard to say goodbye to the little guy below!

We enjoyed a few wonderful family dinners and some awesome time with good friends. Although we failed to get a group photo, our many of our incredible friends also joined us for a sendoff party on Capitol Hill. We are seriously lucky to have such amazing friends and family – we love you all!

Byeeee buddies!! Come meet us abroad! 

It’s hard to describe the feelings we’ve had over the past weeks as we transitioned from the fast-paced city life (and the weekend mountain commute routine) to a life of prepping for travel and saying goodbyes. A lot of excitement, and certainly some anxiety. It will be interesting to see how we adjust to life on the road full time over the coming months. If all goes according to plan, the next report will be coming from Indonesia! Thanks for reading, and cheers.
