I am an Air Force brat so I have lived everywhere. I was born in Japan and two years later my father was stationed in the Philippines for 10 years. When he was transferred back to the US, we were move around to different cities. He retired in Sacramento, CA. The last city I lived in before moving to Austin was Lake Tahoe. Yes, it is as beautiful as you see in the pictures. No, that’s not me in the “Come Visit Lake Tahoe’ commercials.
