We had been thinking that we needed a new location for our northern home. We’ve been living in the Columbia River Gorge (White Salmon, WA) since 2001. Washington decided to pass a capital gains tax of 7% that starts in 2022. Since we have our fingers crossed that there will be significant capital gains from selling Seeq shares in the future, it forced us to accelerate our planning.
We considered many locations but decided that the Minden Nevada area offered good summer weather and a tremendous soaring opportunity. Steve decided that he really wanted to pursue soaring as a hobby again. So we decided to make the move.
Ultimately we bought a property in Genoa (a few miles from the Minden airport) and we hope to build a house over the next 2 years. In the meantime, we bought a transition house in the historical section of Genoa that we really like and we think it will be very comfortable while we consider new house designs. The general layout of the area relative to beautiful Lake Tahoe (about a 30-minute drive on windy roads) is shown in the picture below:
We made the move about Labor Day and missed the worst part of the California forest fire smoke spilling into Nevada.
The house was recently renovated and Nancy is adding her touches. You will get a flavor for the house in the pictures below. Friends and family are invited to visit during our summer stay, generally May through October.
