    Hey man that looks great!
    I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past, so one way to get the most out of life is to look at it as an adventure.

    Currently I can't get down, but I haven't moved in either. I can assure you that I did my homework before purchasing it. It took several trips down there from my builder, myself, and the county to make sure a pathway could be done. Obviously had it not been able, I would still be looking for another house.

    As far as a funicular, I did get 2 quotes. The 1st one came in at $70,000 and the 2nd at just over $50,000. Not that I considered it, but got to thinking what if I had a mechanical failure while I was down or one period. I couldn't access it until.....? The pathway just makes more sense as I'll get a golfcart that can carry 4 ppl. to ride. I even had my elevator guy call to get the ''kit'' to try and save $$ on travel and lodging, but it would still be over 50K. Those systems are not something for just anyone to try and build.
