You are hired, Mocha!

Wait. Does this mean we have to pay you?

Wait, do you want healthcare and a 401K too?

This is getting complicated.

It's a beautiful place. I work there for a summer when going through college.

Awhile ago there was a post that bwca.com is at/near 40,000 members. That would put the cost at a mere $72.50/member. I am in.

LOL... you think a LOT!!!

no, i don't need to be paid, but i get to live there for free in exchange for caretaking. Healthcare would be nice. 401? we can negotiate.
it's not THAT complicated... :)

$72.50... you can't even get there for that much, so it's a steal.
maybe Adam can create a 501c...or whatever it takes and we could make it a training ground for future canoeists. \
members would donate their time to come up and educate those that are hungry for wilderness...

Looks great! That said, I say we hold out for an entry point outfitter so the whole of the wilderness is at our doorstep. I mean if we are going to dream, let's dream big. :)

Okay, you're hired. Wait, if I hired you, does that make me the boss? Well, if I'm the boss, then Adam is the ultra-boss.

Just 3000 of the 40000 less than 1 in 10 - at $1000 each. hmmmm.

That's a LOT of roofs to maintain...

Each "owner" will need to commit 40 hours of service work a year to make this work. Count me in too!
