It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.

Yes, I know you didn’t, but let me repeat myself (because that’s what I do). I spent the weekend on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe alone. I drove that road around Emerald Bay (10 mile an hour hairpin turns, … Continue reading
So, while Steve and Alex were backpacking, I was putzing around the lake, and plopped myself back down at Sugar Pine Point State Park for about 5 hours. I watched the clouds come in, and worried some as the rain … Continue reading
So Steve and Alex are on their annual Muddy Buddy trip. I remind Steve that this may possibly be the single most significant gift he gives his daughters in their life (besides college, of course). Kate started when she was … Continue reading
Steve has recovered nicely, Alex has been home with us for about nine hours, and we’re getting ready for the next fun activity. Steve and Alex have their annual Muddy Buddy trip, backpacking and bonding in Desolation Wilderness. I am … Continue reading
