Yo Jer, When do you need the money? Is it first 40 people and then the door is closed, or can there be more than 40? is it $500 1st year and every year (as long as the thing stays open) or just up-front and then a smaller amount each year after? can you buy-in after the thing is up and running (i'm ...

$125 each way. you can try to walk an old trail from Portou Cove to Furry Creek, it's 20 min hike and goes AROUND the rock-slide.... don't know where you'd park and you'd need a ride on the "other side". we are still flying... flying all day. weather is ok... rain is fine, just can't go through clou...

the "Squamish Inn on the Water" aka. the "Hostel" is EXPENSIVE!!! (if you're staying for any length of time). I recomend the Ocean Port Hotel, it's right down town and recently renovated and WAY Cheaper for long-term (more than a week) stays. http://www.oceanporthotel.com/rooms.php Inn on the Water:...

how much does camping cost? isn't it like $20 a day ($600/month) or something crazy like that??? if so... why don't you look for somewhere to stay in town.. rent a room in a house rather than camp. it makes it much nicer to live and costs the same (for me the only reason to camp is if it is FREE). I...

check out the web cams on this site:

can't see the chief, it's under a cloud. it's damp but "do-able" depending what you want to climb, i think it won't get worse. the pavement is dry so the rock should be ok too.

Take an Aviation Meteorology Class, you'll learn ALOT!!!! i can't believe how much more accurately pilots assess the weather than climbers do (short-term forecast; we're REALLY good at predicting 24 hrs ahead and getting the "big picture" of what's going on around where we are). http://www.flightpla...

Dogs

That being said... like everything: "The few ruin it for the many". i was in the Pet store the other day to get Chava (that's my dog) some dog food. like always, i have him ON-LEASH, but to my di...
