Web Cams

I know you like to look at the webcams. We used to be able to reset the top of Eagle cams from below, or a volunteer would go up and reset at the patrol hut. We haven't been able to reset them for awhile. Now we know why. The top of Eagle cams have been stolen.

Monday Update

The background "stuff" is still going on, and there is a little "puttering" going on up here. A few of us stood in view of the webcam today, in case JWB was watching. I am feeling more positive, but nothing is for sure yet.

Is your cabin winterized?

If you haven't already done so, it is time to put some heat on to avoid frozen pipes. A burst pipe and water leak triggers an alarm and costs us all money to have an operator come out and turn the water off.

Evening Skies - from McKinney Road

The clouds and the fall colours have been great the last few weeks. Here are a few of the sky.

Phone Call Day

Today was phone call day. I know that you are anxious to know, but I can't tell you any more than I have posted here. There is still stuff going on. I know enough that I still have hope. I don't expect to get an update before next week.

When the droplets turn to flakes that stay, I'll post that too.

If things come together, we should have awesome snow at Christmas, because Ron the Dentist has booked to go somewhere warm.

Sunday felt like summer at Mayne Island - warm evening breeze walking down to the Springwater Lodge for dinner - fresh shrimp - looking out over the water.... hmmm, maybe I should have stayed there longer.......

Riding the Rollercoaster, and you know that I don't dance on tables..............

Well my friends, I don't really have anything to report, but since you read the blog so often..................

Several weeks ago, I was contacted by one of the prospective buyers - he outlined his plans to me, and indicated that he would be closing a deal very soon. Well, "very soon" has passed from my perspective, and it appears that his deal did not complete.

I am still hopeful, as there is a lot of "stuff" going on in the background.

Rollercoasters aren't fun for me , MMT, his family, and the team that will be needed to get things running in a short time frame.

Fingers still crossed.

Snowshoe/Cross Country Trails Wow - Thank-you Wayne and Jayne

I knew that Wayne and Jayne were hiking a lot this summer, but just found out that those hikes included brush and chainsaws! They have cleaned up most of the trails. You'll notice a huge improvement when you strap on your snowshoes this winter.

I first met Wayne in 1977, when the "Clarke Hilton" and my cabin were both under construction. Wayne and Jayne are now full-timers at Baldy.

I will give them the maps from Paul and Dave, and hopefully we will have updated maps available soon. They have used a lot of flagging tape to improve the trail marking.

Blog Hits

The daily blog hits are much higher than normal for this time of year. Of course that includes a "Baldy Snowbird" down south, and a "Baldy Babe" in Kirkland - both checking several times a day.

I don't have any news for you, and I guarantee that I am way more anxious than you are to hear some good news.

A little bit of white stuff up top....
