gsc, you could at least leave town first, before you start dissing the rest of us.

Oh I'm not dissing most of the people here It's just the direction this town is slowly going. My mistake of that was taken the wrong way.

I'm just not a fan of going out to dinner then when my kid comes back from the bathroom having to explain why there's needle boxes in there. Amongst many other things we read or see on the news.

Some small towns have worse drug problems. Why don't you go somewhere and rent for a year, try it out first before committing to buy>

Good luck renting in a small town! The main reason those towns listed are supposedly the "worst in Canada" is that they have a high First Nations population, which supposedly drive up crime. The other large factor is that housing is affordable, which they think makes a place a bad place to live.

They aren't bad places to live at all. My dad lives in Williams Lake, and loves it... And he's originally from Victoria. Maybe if you're racist you'd stay away, but really, the drugs and crime isn't any worst than a place like Vernon. My dad doesn't even lock his doors... Most of the city has very low crime.

I remember inquiring about the rental situation in some small towns. Real Estate agents said, "we get inquiries almost daily about rentals" and now I would understand why. People just want to check it out for a year! lol.
Could it be that a whole life can shift the day one starts telling the truth about what makes one happy?

Well we have an update. We have found a beautiful home a lot closer to kelowna. It comes with a lake view, close to the bush, wildlife every where. We will be putting an offer in on Monday so fingers crossed.

We went a week ago to see it and fell in love. When we went to go look at it two very large deer walked right off the front yard.

I'll keep everyone posted :)

We have Deer in the Lower Mission all the time. You don't need to go out into the wilderness to find those.
We also have Racoons living nearby as well as Eagles and Hawks and of course Rats. lol

I won't be posting on here where because there are a couple people I don't really want knowing where we will be living. Sadly they are part of the reason for the move in the first place.

I would love a place with a few acres. Even Penticton is getting to big. I find people in rural areas are much nicer and friendlier. You just have to prepare more, groceries, gas, make sure you have enough, so you don`t have to run into town a lot. Sounds good to me.
