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!

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?

Last week our neighbor's dog got cut up from a cougar. He shot in the air, cougar ran. Bears around a lot, I've seen Moose, Elk, Coyotes, 1000's of deer, racoons, etc. in the past few months here. I have rubber bullets and flashbang rounds in the shotgun because we don't live in the city and we see more animals on our property than people. Better to be safe than sorry. Not every animal is nutz, last time we were on the island, we spent a night with a pack of these friendly guys (my wife is behind the wolf, camera is a 14mm lens 2' from the wolf, it got nose marks on the lens later)...

Don't be misled by the fact that there is a lot of support for the NRA up here.

In Canada it stands for "No Rifles Allowed." :) :)

Good morning friends, causal bystanders and cross dressin, orgy havin weirdos.



Another beautiful morning down around the Howe sound.

Bruce how bad is the sewage treatment plant stench at the elements?

I'm so glad we didn't go the town house route, we are extremely pleased in our little slice of paradise here in Britannia Beach.

Aislinn and I had looked at quite a few town houses when we were first looking to buy. We actually had agreed to buy in Mountain Mews for 305 but thankfully there was another offer on the table pending sale that miraculously went through.

Here is a lurker Kyle photo I nabbed from squamishclimbing.com

Well that's good that the stench doesn't linger your way.

Gun shots? Yes, the property at the top of the hill seems to fire guns quite
regularly.

Hey look its kyle on Perry's lieback!

What is that climb above.

Gotta do it.

Had a tentative trip planned for late summer early fall but I don't think that is gonna happen now.

I'll get there sooner than later though and when I do I gotta do that climb.

More info please or just a link...

Figured it out sorry.
