Hi, I have lived in BC all my life. Born in N. Vancouver, raised in Kamloops and Prince Goerge. Graduated from high school and got into the skydiving scene then moved around the province enjoying the sport. Met my wife as a student jumper, spend a couple years in the sport together before getting married and raising a family. Kids are all moved out now, one is quite active in the sport.

In the eighties we were able to purchase a piece of lakeshore property for the family. Next came the snowmobiles with up to five sleds at one time so everyone had a ride. Later in th mid ninties we acquired a couple quads and quite enjoy taking quad trips around BC.

BC is a gorgeous place to live. A great number of us BC's enjoy motorized sports within the province, however out there is a group of people who are working diligently to curtail our sport. I encourage every motorized recreational user to join a club. one associated with a provincial and federal body to help protect our rights to the land base.

[cheers]
