"In Greek mythology Sisyphus (/ˈsɪsɪfəs/; Greek: Σίσυφος, Sísyphos) was a king of Ephyra (now known as Corinth). He was punished for chronic deceitfulness by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, repeating this action forever." So here we are, intrepid volunteers, trying to bring all of the 7 upcoming Howe Sound sites to a usable state - idiots! The tough sites have one or more issues: 1)big, big rock 'beaches' 2)awkward or erodable connections to the upland 3)unlevelled or uncleared/blocked sites. so first things first: attack the beaches! We choose a semi-bad one, and after 2 days of hard, hard, hard, hard, work [did I say hard?] we finally clear a 2m wide 'canoe run' from low tide all the way to the upland. Three people, crowbars, long bars, come-alongs, chain-hoists, blood, sweat and tears - but done. And serviceable for canoes, kayaks, and other beachable craft. Sleep for 2 days afterwards! ** So feeling uppity, we choose the key site next to Squamish, but it is the toughest one: And we work, and work, and get some success near the low tide mark, And then farther up the beach, And at the end of 2 days, we are just above the halfway mark, but there are some really big ones looming. The ending is not known as of now, but the will is . . . there is an old saying that goes something like 'we need a bigger winch' . . .
