hi Newbusa, will do, Im over due for a visit. Ive almost moved there a few times, maybe one day...
Looks like we'll be spending a couple days mid-island. Staying in Courtenay 2 nights, exploring the area while we're up there. I'll be looking with an eye for life there. The family will just be tourist-ing, lol.
Both Campbell River and Courtenay suck, there are just to many outdoor adventure choices that it makes it confusing to choose what to do... Your better off to find a place with only a couple options and then you can use a coin to decide...
Damn right! 1,000's of km of backroads, 100+ fishing & kayaking lakes, windy sailing, downhill & XC skiing, snowmobiling, unlimited hiking & mountain biking, caving, ocean & river fishing ...
How is a guy to make a choice?
Just a quick question of the BC retirees: Where did the "Places to Eat in BC" thread go?
I figured you guys would know.
Some of us retirees just ride. We don't ride to eat some of us actually stay in shape.
Maybe you should be posting your question on the Harley thread
Oh, I didn't mean to insinuate anything.
Even tough guys need to eat now and then.
So... Princeton and Merritt are out due to the chance of floating away or burning down. I'm not sure if I could get used to catching a ferry for concerts etc. I like this listing in Mission for $499k. Too bad I can't buy yet (2019 sell-date). Looks quiet... Superstore, Safeway, movie theaters, Save On Foods, Canadian Tire, Starbucks 25 minutes away. Home Depot and Costco 40 mins away. Yes please.
Calibre - taxes are cheap (compared to Ontario) And it is only -7982 years old!
Lol. I get a kick out of those build dates.
Odd, I keep looking at Princeton. And Hope/Mission/Chilliwack. If I raise the house budget to 500k, it looks like I can squeak into the 604 with a garage and plenty of room. Or I could go Princeton and get in under 300k. Oh well, 2 years to decide.
Most of the guys I work with live in Mission or just east. They seem to like it .
I think it would be great. I picked my kid up from a Guide camp in Whonnock a while back, and loved the quiet peaceful proximity to civilization. Just need to decide if it's worth 200k in savings to have to drive 300 km to Vancouver or 200 km to Chilliwack as needed. Honda bike dealer, big grocery trip, clothes, big DIY stuff would all require trips to "the city".
hang out at the A and W?
that's about it for excitement in the town of Princeton.
Why do you hate root beer?
Did you miss free root beer day this past Saturday July 22?
So you are thinking of retirement? Just wondering what kind of health care options are in Princeton?
With any luck, getting out of the GVRD on a high note I'll be retiring at 44 in 2019. Rough life I know. Princeton is a little too small for healthcare if you're getting old and decrepit, lol. I keep coming back to Princeton in my head, but I think it's a bit too far from friends and family here in the GVRD.
