Here's a pic of Eric B doing the Starfish Traverse, while belayed by Uncle Fred. It looks a lot like Big Jim, but it's not. Big Jim had bigger pipes! Note the classic hammer in back pocket of jeans stylin'.

That pic makes Banana Peel look badass, which I thought was impossible.

Yeah, why isn't he walking across that sidewalk? Hanging by your hands off the curb is just weird.

Banana peel was the first climb I ever did back in 1982. I also aided the first pitch of exasperator as it looked impossible to climb at the time.

Hi Tami! I thought the book was lost. Then an old roomie called up and said he had it and would return it to me! WOOT!

USPS IS bad, but not THAT bad!

Time to put some more pictures/vids/stories up! Is it raining there right now though? I'm thinking about moving from the Okanagan because I miss granite, does Squamish need a dentist?

does Squamish need a dentist?

Isn't that like asking, "does West Virginia need a dentist?"

WTF

$429000 for a condo!

Sorry I want my own house without a neighbor in sight for that kinda money in a mountain paradise like Squamish.

Condo is fine for city living I suppose but not part of my mountain town dream..

Nice condo though!

Sanskara - a sh1tbox of a house in Vancouver goes for a million bucks. So half-mil fer a condo is lux.

F*#k!

No way I am going anywhere near Vancouver with the bed bug epidemic so thats off the table regardless. Who am I kidding I an American so it's all off the table north of the border as much as I may dream!

Looking at the Bishop thread also blows my mind how expensive property is all the places I might fantasize about living. I am thinking Ouray or Durango might be my best bet. Patagonia but that ain't gonna happen either. Sigh.......

My 2-3 bedroom 1 bath 1100-1600 square ft house depending on how you slice it updated very nicely and very well cared for 20 minutes west of Boston in a well desired town to boot is only worth $425000 on a good day. The potential for employment world class health care so forth and so on is comparable to few places one could choose to live. The only thing missing is the mountains.

I guess it just blows my mind how expensive everything has become regardless of where you go.

Yup. Lots of those around here. Lots of small towns in bc that are way more affordable, but they just don't offer world class recreational opportunities like the sea to sky does.

Squamish can always use more people who know how to drill....

As for dentists and West Virgina, is that the state where "anywhere else they'd call it a TEETHbrush"?

Yeah, the only thing I don't like about it is the high prices and no acreages. Right now I can shoot on my land, or next door on crown land and see no neighbors. Moving to a city.....hmmmm...

Nice joke opalanx. They teach that day one in dental school.

Nice townhouse Bruce, are you leaving?

Why is that? Not enough sport climbs for you?
