Bo Grebitus is related to the Pioneer Dodson and Breuner families (California arrivals in the 1840s and 50s). He spent many of his childhood summers at Lake Tahoe with parents, grandparents, and any relative that would keep him in the basin. A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, he once worked the west shore Obexer boat docks and Market in Homewood. It was during those summers that he hiked the basin, developing a keen interest in Tahoe history along the way. Bo currently owns a real estate inspection business in Granite Bay, California.
