Charlton Lewis ’48

I was deeply saddened by the recent death of our classmate Bud Lester. Bud and I roomed together on the third floor of the Upper School. We were both on the gymkhana team. We camped together on extra day trips in the Sespe. And much else. Bud may have been the most popular guy in […]

Art Wahl ’72

It was my great pleasure to lead about 75 members of the South Coast Geological Society on one of their annual field trips, this time into the local patch of “Franciscan mélange” located near Midland School. Pictured is the group assembling on a blueschist “knocker.” I revisited this area – after mapping it 30 years […]

Tyfahra Singleton ’96

Recently became Executive Director of a summer camp for Bay Area kids from low-income communities. Kids, many of whom have never been away from home, spend 3 weeks in beautiful San Gregorio near Half Moon Bay, swimming, camping, hiking, reading, doing adventure math, visiting farms, bonding and being kids. I spend a lot of time […]

Seumas Sargent ’95

Back from a month of salt water and sunshine cure in southern France (read: little family, surfboard, tent, gas cooker, waves pounding just beyond the dunes) and now shooting a new TV series in Prague called SPY CITY. Hope everyone is getting the occasional health check, finding balance in the chaos and enjoying a good […]

Sharon Karlsberg ’92

Hello fellow Toads! After 15 years with my firm, ZS Associates, I decided to create my own sabbatical program to spend the summer with family. And what a summer it was! In 5 weeks, Craig, Zachary (age 11), Wyatt (age 8), and I covered over 5,200 miles in our 1990 VW Westfalia camper van. We […]

Sarah O’Brien ’86

It was wonderful to spend a week up at Golden Trout this summer with classmates Carolyn and Doug Kirkpatrick. I loved taking my sons Pierce (12) and Ronan (10) on their first camping trip with an amazing group of Thacher Alumni and their families. The hikes, delicious food and the spectacular setting were a magnificent […]

Victor Wykoff ’88

After 5 years in Cupertino, the Wykoff-Piñón family has settled in to Silicon Valley life. Vic Wykoff (CdeP 88) celebrated his 2-year anniversary as chief data scientist at SAP Ariba this September. Vic still enjoys camping and sports, but now he’s the coach! Vic is coaching Little League baseball in the spring and AYSO soccer […]

Ella Goodbrod Moench ’00

Small family adventures this summer with my boys: bike camping, CA travel, river time, and mountain hikes… loving sharing the outdoors with people who are just getting started. Big summer bonus-seeing Juliette & her little dude Crawford! Now back to school and fully immersed in the drama and life of 7th graders as we learn […]

Tony Thatcher ’85

Greetings from Bozeman, MT! It’s been a busy year for me as I start to ramp up a new business building and repairing guitars, mandolins and ukes. A shameless plug for Mountain Whimsy Guitars (www.mwcustomguitars.com). I’m still making maps and doing GIS analysis, mostly associated with rivers and streams. During a fabulous early fall camping […]

Natalie Selzer ’08

In summer 2016 three of us from the class of 2008—Meredith Dworkin, Douglas Land, and Natalie Selzer—reconnected in the old Thacher way: during a weekend camping trip (this time with a car full of snacks parked nearby and something other than water in our Sierra Cups). Our outdoor excursion in San Simeon, California, brought back […]
