Bruce, I dun keerected yer post to dat udder plitical tred for ya:

Bookworm and you will be happy to know that our right wing provincial government is doing its best to bleed our provincial parks system of the required funding and human resources it needs via lowering taxation of corporations and higher incomes and depending on wildly oscillating resource royalties, which of course they low ball to start with.

Sounds familiar? If you deliberately make it weak, you strengthen the case for an alternate system - privatization.

Pretty good but not a real mountain. No mosquito's, Moss, Mud, cedars, glaciers, slide alder, devils club, old logging equipment, rednecks, sasquatchs, Ogopogos, shitty weather, cross border drug runners, Sledders or BCMCers so it hardly rates as a mountain but it was a pretty good rock climb,

This describes almost every mountain in the Sierra

Thanks, Bruce. I wonder why there isn't a public meeting in Squamish?

Yeah, that's very disappointing about the heli stuff. I had REALLY hoped that they'd phase it out. Maybe it's not too late. Fill in the comment forms, people. Deadline is Jan 10 but the sooner the better.

Whistler Blackcomb is a major player in the Heli Business.... They own Whistler Heli now... I very much doubt they are willing to let it go. It will be a hard road to fight. Especially with the current political climate.

Hahaha that relic shot kills me every time I see it. I was holding onta that pic since Natedogs birthday.

I don't usually do request numbers...unless of coarse I've been asked to do so.

As requested by Mike here is a brief report of the Croft presentation last night.

The Spearrhead Soirée

The evening started with Jacqui Hudson(I think) presentation, she had a great collection of photos put together of her and some friends doing some bass ass ski traverse in AK, I think it ways from Haines to Cordova, possibly vice versa or I might even be wrong all together. Some where in there, I'm sure of it, they climbed mount Logan and skied down the other side.

Jayson Faulkner did a couple speeches and laid out the plans for the 3 hut system in the Spearhead, and brought everyone up to pace on where they're at.

The dude introducing Mr. Croft reminisced of a previous Croft presentation in which Peter was asked afterwards what the scariest route he had ever done was. Apparently he answered White Lightning.

Triconni was sitting in the front, left of Center. His haircut is unmistakeable from behind, I wonder if he waxed his noging, sure is shiny. Relic should grow a doo like that.

Peter started by telling us that Greg is his best friend, and that they've done tons of climbing together with out many epics. Then went on to tell us the first two times he went out with Don Serl he was absolutely certain he was going to die. One of those stories has been posted at the start of this thread(good luck finding it) . He showed an awe inducing set of slides of the trio doing the first complete traverse of the Waddington range. It was frikin rad.

A wonderful slide show by Peter, for sure. Good evening (but expensive: I went overboard on the silent auction).

Thank you sir! I was wondering how it went! I wanted to go but the mountain sapped my energy yesterday so I am glad I decided against it. Climbing this weekend maybe?

If it's drying up as Ryan says, it'll be no good then.

Not to worry Fishboy. Conditions look prime later in the week for some Squishy climbing.
