I guess you'd have to be emigrating with the expectation to be massively disappointed to start with. That might help.

Then I read what you wrote. What a beautiful life you must lead, I'm envious! Thank you for writing this as it brought back all of the excitement I lost while reading through all of these pages!

Whilst I like most enjoy cities for a day, the thought of living in one for me is horrible. I have visited London and whilst I enjoyed the visits, I am definitely happy I don't life there.
The thought of seeing all that wildlife and being so close to the mountains and wilderness sounds great to me!

Just to draw you over- you do need a job here which isnt always easy but some visitors to our garden . Snoop and I share a kennel in case you may not have sussed:cool: I take the snaps of the critters usually

The sandier/redder coloured black bear in the 2nd and last photo helped clean up the garden clippings- I was out there but saw her coming up from the lake through the edge of the neighbouring prov park, the middle darker one was sat on a garden pergola about 7 feet off the ground happily scoffing our grapes. They visited about a month apart.

The eagle.. well, what can one say? just a beautiful bird at the top of one of our trees.
Probably boring as crap to the likes of numerous posters within the thread- How the hell could we want to spend more than 7 years in such a beautiful place? Everyone needs to find what they like- certainly for the foreseeable future we are staying put and loving it here in our little patch of Canadian paradise- :cool:

You'd have to wait till their children could give them an honest answer. After all that is who most people move for.

But that ugly electrical spaghetti that blights the city is still here. For naffs sake, that technology was phased out in the 1950s in the UK.
