Re: “Epic Hakuba II: Details, details

Nice read, but think you mean Norikura Onsen in the first sentence.

Re: “Let the sunshine shine

Highly offensive - "Though pillaging of the Sunshine Coast by the rapacious logging industry was worse than many places in B.C., the SCT has snatched outdoor-recreation victory from the jaws of wanton destruction. "

Could you not simply make a statement showing gratitude for the activities of forest industry for opening roads and trails that allow you access to this and many other locations.

Do you live in a house - Do you have your work printed on paper - Do you read books - do you read magazines - Do you play hockey with a hockey stick - Do you ski - or practice archery ? or is your whole world oil based and all those things are done with fiberglass forms --

Please stop being a hypocrite as you sip wine and denounce the grape

Love the Inn on the Mountain and the Miller House in PEC! Great environment, food is super and service friendly and sincere. This family business is a true landmark for the County.

Re: “More good ground

The laughing crow food boxes have genuinely been the highlight of this summer for me. It's also forced me to eat and like beets! Lol! As I type this I'm honey roasting some laughing crow beats for a very salmon and goats cheese salad for dinner! These guys are amazing and their efforts are very much appreciated

Re: “Birdland II: scratch that twitch

I wouldn't sell yourself short Leslie. I think you were already a plenty big enough asshole to be a birder long before you wrote this.

Re: “Birdland I: taking flight

So you don't like birders we get it. Maybe time to stop perpetuating decades old stereotypes about birders for some cheap laughs from the ignorant. We are like gays or students, we come from every walk of life and a few of us have mental illnesses too.

Maybe time to do an article on why most people are so stupid they don't notice birds.

Better luck on part 2 this is garbage.

Re: “Be prepared for Preppers

I have been a prepper all my life. my parents - both college grads and my father a major in the USAF - taught me to be ready for anything, especially hurricanes on the gulf coast. this winter was deadly in the north with all the snow and I saw people who knew the storms were coming and didn't even have 3 days of formula for their 2 month old baby. now THAT is stupid beyond words. my daughter has 2 masters degrees and she and her husband keep their house ready for whatever happens. I am retired now and live in a small urban apartment with lots of food and water for myself and a few close neighbors who will need help in an emergency. yes, as stupid as you are, sir, I would probably help you too.

Re: “Be prepared for Preppers

People like this author are why i am a prepper and always striving for sustainability and self sufficiency, to decry people who are capable of taking care of themselves and undoubtedly many others as some kind of fringe nutjobs with such a wide stroke of the literary brush speaks volumes of the incompetence of the person writing.

Re: “Be prepared for Preppers

I work at US Northern Command. I prep (as do others for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that we leave our homes during disasters to help others). Think about what I said for a moment Got many degrees (so what?).

Fools make themselves vulnerable. Some of the biggest fools are soft - handed intellectuals with big mouths. Are you one? No, I don't think so. I think you are actually fascinated with peppers but don't have the courage to be open about it.

It's ok. Come on in, water's fine.

Re: “Be prepared for Preppers

Being prepared should be a mainstream practice for folks from all walks of life and in all geographic locations.
Here's something to consider.....How would nearly 25 million North Americans, who don't have municipal water, get water from their wells in an extended power outage?

Re: “Be prepared for Preppers

The author claims to live in Whistler, but obviously wasn't living there in October 2003 when heavy rains and melting snow caused rivers to swell and wash out the road to Pemberton and Squamish. The two well stocked supermarkets in Pemberton where emptied within a few hours. Items like diapers, baby food, milk, etc had to be flow in by helicopter because people kept only a few days supply of such items. Meanwhile, as a silly prepper, I was high and dry and well stocked, and was listening to the chaos on the scanner and the local radio stations. It was at least a week before a temporary bridge was installed over the Rutherford river, allowing trucks to bring in larger quantities of supplies. I know of many that didn't see prepping in the same way after that incident.

Re: “Be prepared for Preppers

It's obvious when someone is using a superior vocabulary to mask a lack of substance...the mediocre journalist's equivalent of elevator shoes.

This article has likely brought you more attention than you have ever enjoyed in one sitting, but this brand of tirade only works for a very short while before the right-minded will turn on you.

You may have an uncommon grasp of the language, Les, and this may be an op/ed piece, but your inclination for smug generalization and wholesale derision undermines any credibility you may have as a journalist...it all comes off as highbrow bullying and an affordance for the belittlement of people who obviously do not see the world with equivalent cognitive horsepower.

Of course, all is forgiven if this was all some sort of satire. Unfortunately, satire only works if one lets the reader in on the joke.
