    Just like the Rona, seems like this might have a hard time staying in China.

It also costs $1,780/yr in HOA dues and $1,620 in property taxes, per year. My friend and hair stylist is trying to buy her commercial space in that building right now; we'll see how her negotiations work out for 780 sq ft.

    I know a rich guy/man about town type who just doesn't pay for parking, daily, in town. He gets a $25 ticket most days, but I guess it's "easier" than not paying for him? Drives a Defender and G Wagon, wears a Barbour jacket, etc etc.

    At least the selling agent is the real deal and good people. Lauren is Anton Sponar's wife - he runs Ski Arpa in Chile and is a Salomon/Eider spansered skier/guide here in town. Good people.

    Why is everything cheaper upstate? I mean pick a state, and just about every state is cheaper upstate. Except for maybe HI. Hard to figure out which way is upstate on an island.

    Look for the part with strip malls, Walmart, and sketchy people at convenience stores buying lottery tixs.

    Kauai is the northernmost island, and is generally expensive. The big island is the southernmost, and has some really inexpensive real estate from Hilo down to the lava flows, so downstate?

    Correct, that was not the purpose in mind when purchased. Sure, everything is double the cost of the Slowvo and maybe 50% more than the 4 series, but I factored that in before pulling the trigger.
    You really should rethink trying to cut in on other cars, as I am sure that will end up badly for you at some point and then you will need a newer car too.
    Now back to your regularly scheduled thread.

    Was waiting for someone to bite on that I’m not opposed to a wash/cut/style every so often

    She’s a friend and single mom of of twins and I’ve always tried to support her. It costs me a bit more money than the $21 barber but money goes to a person who needs it.

    IMO anything narth of Kamloops is the narth

    IME its a whole different level of cold when its fucking cold

    One can get away with alot of deffered maintenance in the winter down there but you get up to PG and that don't play so if you don't have the good battery/ studded snows/ everything working ... you will be walking

    I think you could still get a house with lake front on Tyee for < 1 million

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the same company that hands out the tickets in Breck are the ones we got here in CB this summer. Basically the same as the Simpsons Monorail guy, they came into a council meeting and said "Make parking really hard and confusing and we'll hand out the tickets". And the stupid council was like "sounds good!".

    Town councils in ski towns have totally jumped the shark these days. They just aren’t equipped to handle the plethora of societal issues caused by the virus. Cutting down on STRs is just cutting off their nose to spite their faces. It is pretty amazing to watch how inept they all are. They should really consider investing their increased tax revenue into hiring some folks that actually know wtf they are doing.

    Frisco was going to require all people staying in the town short or long term to prove vaccination or be fined. Wtf? I’m all for vaccinating everyone but what kind of stupid shit is that?

    Breck parking is pretty easy though, now that I have three different passes hanging from my rear view and a code for the app that is. Haha.
