    Yes... I just saw your location "NY/Pittsford". I'm in Granville, so we're 25 to the Bush and 45 to Kmart. Good places to be. We'll have to meet for beers with other mags this winter.

    And my BFF's car... just finished building his ski house in Rangley. Someone will buy SB, right?!:

    I certainly hope so. Been up that way a number of times either renting a condo or a lake cabin through the Town & Lake Motel in Rangeley. It's a nice corner of the world.

    Whoa, whoa whoa...... Profane dude doesn't ski? Am I missing an inside joke here or something? I thought being a ski freak was a prerequisite around here.

    Petition signed BTW. Best of luck to you guys. The folks down the road from me (Shames) know your predicement intimately and managed to turn it into a beautiful thing. As Gary and his gang will tell you, there is hope.

    You may have to figure out how to make a living up there with something like that (clean needles?) if the economy continues to tank. The Bush isn't exactly a big cash machine. And that scamming the foreigners for green cards has already been taken by the Jay thieves.

    VT-F has some mad carpentry skills and not just on skis. He'll always have work and be in demand. Unlike washed up lemonade stand pimps in Colorado.

    I wouldn't call what you do work either ...

    Shaking down eight and nine-year-old kids is not exactly manly or a respectable way to earn a living.

    Well, hey, here's an idea. Form a co op of sorts, but with absolutely no real ownership and voting power over the mountain's business plan, get together over a few beers, sing koombaya, and sell a bunch of 3000 dollar t shirts. Oh, wait.........

    I didn't know Saddleback had closed either. I haven't been there for a few years, but it was one of my very favorite places I've skied. Good terrain and a great vibe. Hope that it makes it.

    The Bush already used EB-5. It's one of the success stories of the program.

    Actually something along these lines has been discussed for Saddleback.

    I'll throw $5 in the ring for Saddleback. First area I skied and was just 2 y.o.

    Benny Profane. What's your deal? Why are you wasting oxygen?
    Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus Flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won't bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition.
