    Re: Thinking about moving to the Okanagan

    I live in the south okanagan, No question it’s getting busier, trouble is a lot of the roads and infrastructure are not designed for this. With the 45c weather and the smoke I’m really looking around.

    Sure. If you like hoards of Albertans with boats. I grew up in Eagle Bay. It was quieter in the 70s (obviously), but not so much anymore.

    Penticton is not nearly as bad as Vernon, which isn’t nearly as bad as Hellowna. You could not pay me to live there!

    Move! I just left the valley for Vernon last spring. We live in Coldstream, Great place, and lots of different options depending on housing cost and how close to town you need to be. Options are endless. Lots of work if you want it. Endless amounts of outdoor fun right out your door and the weather is always nice here compared to the valley. Once you move you will ask your self why you wait so long.
    Lord let me come home bloody, not my own.

    It's really just at matter of her getting this job that allows her to work anywhere, that way if she missing grandma she can come back down and visit for a week a d still be able to work and breaking it to the families lol I know my mom will be bent out of shape over it at first, but we can either sell our townhouse here and stay while being mortgaged to the tits,or we can sell and have little to no mortgage and enjoy life up there,I think she'll understand lol

    Re: Thinking about moving to the Okanagan

    Moved the family to Penticton from the LML 6 years ago. Best decision I've ever made.

    We wanted a slower pace, but still needed close proximity to the medical system for our disabled son. Kelowna wasn't going to do much for the pace of things for us so it was down to Vernon and Penticton and we went with the place we liked more.
    I'd highly suggest making a small vacation through the valley and seeing what you and your wife like best and go from there. There are pros and cons to any place, just gotta find what works best for you.
