    Sept 22 2007

    Pisss

    DVC only entrance to DCA?


    Look what I can see pass the open gate.



    May be in one or two year you will see this.


    From Redwood Creek Challenge Trail bach at Grand Calif, resort So the part of DVC resort.




    Let see what we can from the look area.



    Let the rebuilting start

    Cover for the Emergency for the Resort.



    What understanding from the artist drawing is that emergency exit will stay and door will be add.
    there will be a glass bridge on each floor to the new DVC Resort building.







    Time to start drilling and put steel in the ground.
