A great interview with Alan Eustace!
A retired Google executive named Alan Eustace broke the record for the highest-altitude jump, but you've never heard of him. Here's why.

Probably the best breakfast place I've ever been to. Keep up the awesome, Squeeze In! My favorite is the Racy Tracy... their home-made sauces are to die for.

We first met Bob while skiing at a backcountry lodge in Canada, and he seemed like a fantastic resource for the Truckee area, knowledgeable and friendly! As things happened, two years later he helped us with buying our first home in Truckee, which went great! When you work with this real estate group, you have a team of top notch individuals who know the area well. We worked with Kris and Laura a lot, who were both very responsive and made sure we met our closing schedule. I hadn't realized this before, but buying a house is a 100-step process (or sure feels like it), fraught with paperwork and bureaucracy, so you *will* need the help of people to do everything right and in time. :-) I believe we communicated with them & they were working with us every single day over the 30-day closing process, especially through email and phone, and I can highly recommend them for buying the house of your dreams!

My favorite Mexican joint to hit on return from Yosemite trips. Fresh squeezed orange juice is amazing (they always have fresh fruit!) and the food is great, less greasy than usual. Love the fajitas! Staff is very friendly as well :)

I bought a used truck from Dan Wiebold Ford and they were amazing to deal with all-around! I have been looking for something very specific and live out-of-state (in California). When this vehicle popped up, I emailed them and Rob Sorenson replied right away. He was extremely friendly and patient and worked with me to answer all of my questions for several days. Then I arranged a one-way flight, and Rob picked me up from the hotel the next day with the truck - awesome! Paperwork/everything went smoothly, and they made me feel like VIP! I was out of there in < 1 hour to make the long drive home. Highly recommend dealing with them, I was nervous being out-of-state, but it was so worth it! I wish every dealer was like this, I really feel like they are unique!

My favorite sushi place in the area. The salmon nigiri is to die for! In general all of their fish is really fresh and delicious. The rolls are also great and the portions/cuts of fish are generous for the price. Staff is very friendly too!
