    Barriere would be good, there’s lots of rural property from Barriere to Kamloops. Also Chase, salmon arm, any of the small okanagan towns peachland, summer land. Gets a little busier in tourist time tho

    Look into the quality of the medical system in the different areas because a lot of places medical care sucks big time. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself traveling to the lower mainland for treatment or surgery or be stuck waiting stupid long periods compared to southern BC if you choose to go north

    Little Fort and Clearwater, not a lot of services but not too far from Kamloops. Also really like Smithers.

    Boy, is that the sad truth, more leftist-lib newcomers who all seem to be grant grubbers and hippies than hardpressed taxpayers!!!

    I was going to move back, but, the health care situation has made me reconsider.

    East of Vernon ain't bad either, but we're capped out on old fogies.

    I'd find some place Mennonites or Hutterites live and buy something close buy.
    They really live self sufficiently for the most part.
    They will outlive us.

    Beautiful area, no doubt about it, but I'd never move there.

    Spent a couple nights there again this spring on a road trip with my daughter....I'm good for another year or two again. Vernon ain't no treat anymore either, but I think I'd take it over Nelson, if forced between the two.

    Hahaha, I'm good with that. I've been blessed to have lived and worked in a part of the country many save their whole lives to retire and move to. I try not to take that for granted.
