The best part of living in the California mountains is the ease of feeling 1,000 miles away, by just posting up next to the local lake. On this particular evening, we headed to Donner Lake and posted up on the public dock. A father was teaching his son to fish- the casual passing of an age-old skill. We hitched a ride for a few laps on a friend's wake surf boat. The troubles of the world melted away. We donned new soft, bigtruck® t-shirts and sweatshirts and reveled that recycled water bottles blended with cotton could feel so comfortable. Sometimes it is the simple things.
