    I left in '15 when I was told "take your vacation now, we'll be flat out this winter" and then the winter was completely dead.

    Miss the mountains but happy I pulled out when I did.
    Where are you now? Oops double post

    Own a business and live 3/4 of the year in Toronto, and spend the other 1/4 in Nelson BC. (hoping to move that to 1/2 and 1/2 soon)

    Does asking about rims ever go out of vogue?

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Why all the way to Nelson from Toronto? Just curious because the wife and I have thought about buying something in cottage country, but can't justify it living in calgary. Even though we both have tons of family and friends there.

    oh boy, how do you put up with the hippes and the 'pace of life'? I spent a week there and the skiing was great, food and mountains were great, but ready to either drown myself or the hippies

    @adamc is Nelson still super against dogs in their downtown core? Took a holiday about 5 years ago there I remember the no dog signs up all over the place.

    I just love it there. One of the last cheap(ish) places to buy land in southern BC. Ontario has never really clicked for me, I like it a lot here and the work is great, but BC is home.

    @g-m motorcycles, boat, swim, camp, dirtbike, etc. etc. I grew up in the Okanagan. Toronto provides a really nice balance when I get tired of the slow pace of life.
    @nzwasp I had never noticed the dogs thing, I don't spend much time in "town" tbh

    Shop owners marched on city hall to get rid of that, it’s cool now. Whole thing was a move to get dubstep hippie homeless folk out of town so that sweet tourist money wasn’t scared off, if memory serves they also banned drum circles, busking, etc.
    sig deleted by moderator, because they are useless
