Dick,

This forum has over 5,000 members...if every member chipped just a few thousand dollars. Or much less if seeking a mortgage.
You are probably familiar with Schenectady Wintersports Club??

I'm sure you're half joking, but whatever happened to people with shared interests getting together to purchase, maintain and enjoy a substantial area - the old club model? It seems those still around formed decades, if not more than a century ago, for the primary purposes of hunting and fishing. Why can't this model work for the 'modern recreationists' such as paddlers, hikers and skiers?

Fisher...I don't joke about real estate, it could be a reasonable business model.
I mentioned the Schenectady Wintersports Club...a group of like minded skiers chipped in and bought a large farmhouse in Vermont...their mortgage has been paid off for years. Anyone in the club can stay and eat for a low cost, and enjoy each others' company as well.

Thanks Glen! That's pretty interesting. I wonder if there was a minimum bid beyond the $100,000 deposit?
