  • Team Fjeldheim to support the Tahoe Rim Trail

    Just met with Josh, Jamie, Kerry and Jason here at Fjeldheim to talk business, and none of them want to do the ToughMudder with me. They looked at me like I was crazy.  So I guess there will be no "Team Fjeldheim" doing the ToughMudder after all. (But "Team Fjeldheim" is going to do some cool stuff this coming calendar year, stay tuned!)

    But during our meeting, the idea did come up: how about raising money for a local charity? Next year will be Fjeldheim's tenth year in business, a good time to start giving back to the local Tahoe community somehow.  Since a good part of Fjeldheim's summer charm is the hiking, biking, and equestrian trails all around us, why not support the premier hiking, biking, and equestrian trail of the Tahoe Basin-- the Tahoe Rim Trail?

    All were in favor, so we will find out more about what that might look like. At the very least, we can run the ToughMudder in honor of the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, perhaps raise money or at least awareness of this great Sierra treasure. Right everyone? "Team TRTA?"

     

    ...crickets...

     

    Okay, so I'm still running the Tough Mudder Tahoe alone. But at least I'm doing it for a noble cause: support the Tahoe Rim Trail!

     

    If you haven't heard of the Tahoe Rim Trail, it's worth looking up. Their site has a good assortment of maps, lots of information, and a roll call of the 165 Mile Club, all those who have "through-hiked" the TrT all the way around.  I've wanted to hike the whole TrT every since I first heard of it.

    Trail maintenance takes constant vigilance, especially in the Sierras, where it's hard work to maintain high-country rugged trails like this one.
