    What's scary is, for some, such cribs represent 'roughing it' in the high country.

    Bless.

    Mate we used to cop it from the 'city' campus guys cos we lived and went to school in the '****ry'. Mt Buller would almost be overseas to them.

    Would you believe that once my Mum got ill we sold out of our place and pretty much got what we paid for it 30 years prior.

    So I don't have anything at Buller anymore and am just a lowly punter. :cry:

    I have heard about some apartments going though ... :whistle:

    Absolutely!

    (. . . If not for Verm rightly pointing out the catastrophe one would have with the wood panelled ceiling, of course)

    C'mon, man! But you're 500m from Moguls!

    Come back to me when you're 50m from where it's really at, otherwise pointless crib is pointless.

    Anthropological question: Are there any APS old boys who support Collingwood?

    Melbourne tribes are complicated.

    I knew it was complicated. Do they go to up market orthodontists for tooth removal?

    <shakes head> Ohh you wouldn't have to stump up a cent.
    I wouldn't be selling. I'd be up there every day of the week, and twice on Sundays.

    Ski when it snows, stroll when it doesn't. At day's end, I'd just step inside and stew myself in a spa with a glass of bubbles, and enjoy the view. Then I'd toast my toes by the fire and dispose of the remaining bubbles.

    See, it's not about turning a profit - it's about enjoying your happy place.

    Do you buy tix to the footy, or go out for dinner, see a show, buy a few beers at a bar - to make a profit? Or because you enjoy them, because you can, and because you want to?

    To someone starving, your one dinner out would be a wasteful extravagance. They'd tell you; but you could buy many meals with that money, and buy vegetable seeds and a chicken to produce even more food.

    It's relative. If you have $150 leisure funds, you spend it on something you enjoy - not to gain profit. Same, same for someone who has 1.5 mill leisure funds and buys an apartment in the mountains.

    Sure, not so many have a spare 1.5 mill - lamentably, me neither. But when I have indulgence funds, I occasionally use them to play in the snow and eat myself stupid on apricot moguls and donuts. :emoji_pig::yum:

    No financial profit, but plenty of emotional profit.




    . . . Oh, and probably a bit of belly-fat profit eventually, too.

    :D

    The rest of us are too busy making money so we can buy one of these apartments to put together a detailed reply. You might wanna try it.
