We used to live off the river about a 1/4 mile from the upper lock below Crowe Bay if I remember correctly. As far as reasoning for leaving, all the above. Actually my Dad got transfered. I was in grade seven at the time. That area holds a lot of fond memories though.

Ever stop to think and forget to start again?

Not too sure which you're referring to as being nice to live in.......

I grew up in Duncan (extremely boring town),
now I'm out in Red Deer (also sort of boring).

Still visit the coast as I can and wheel in the mountains there.

Ya, I said it'd be nice to live on the island, but I don't think I'd actually do it. I went to Duncan on summer, ya it was boring but no worse than the town I grew up in. The only thing was that I was dead from the allergy pills I had to take. Damned hay fever. My dream is to be able to live in the okanagan and raise my kids, and eventually retire there.

I don't really know too much about Red Deer, Edmonton is a nice city. Living on the base though with only one vehicle is really boring. You'r just far enough away that you can't walk unless you like walking over an hour to get anywhere. I would but it's a little sketchy with a stroller right along the highway.

No more work! I wanna go wheeling, well as much as you can here in the flat lands. Just gotta buy the little one a new car seat, and find some magical money or magical gas that never runs out. but that'll never happen. But at least I'll have the weekends again.

Vancouver Island is Great for wheeling. Under a 1 hr drive your in shawnigan lake area, 1000's of Acres to explore and wheel.

I think we should post pictures of where you wheel in Canada: Landscape, wildlife, river and lakes....ect...

Or should I start a new thread for that?

Can it be anywhere we go wheeling? Or does it have to be where we live? Cause we usually go wheeling in the okanagan, to do anything here, it's like an hour or more away and no mountains.

Could be worse Twisted_metal

At least you ain't trapped in Scar-beria (Scarborough). My poor baby Sister had to attend the U of T campus at the same time Bernardo and Holmolka were prowling around !

Looking back, it's lucky we didn't know what evil people lived down there.

Not that I'm proud of it, but when I was growing up, this waste of air lived a few blocks away from me....



One of my best friends used to play with the kids that lived next door to Olson. He's lucky to be alive!
