Just makes sense... don't build in the mountains. People know the risks and that's the chance you take. just like the people that build on sand or the cliffs, then complain about the mud slides or whatever.

with obe wang.

If you build your home in an inaccessible place, you enjoy both the benefits and the risks of the inaccessibility. That road is practically impassible in good weather, so how would the homeowners up there expect or demand emergency service in bad weather? Build a two-lane highway if you have needs. Otherwise, suffer the consequences of living in the outback when the consequences come along.

My tip of the hat goes to those who get up, suit up and mount up.

Whatever the situation. They are on their way!

They are just ponting out the obvious.

When you build in the flood plain, you are at risk of getting flooded. When you build in an inaccessible place, it is possible emergency crews won't have easy access.

Grow up and get a life yourself.

why are you people talking about my house? Find something better to do! And what's this talk about pot and school kids?
I think

it is a suggestion that you might have been growing pot up there and selling it to school kids. If your name really is "wheezie", it would indicate you should think about moving down a bit in altitude and attitude, dude.
