Hello everyone,
I am moving to the Surrey, possibly Mission area, I am from Calgary Alberta I have worked for Arctec Alloys doing specialty electrodes for a couple years, am going to take over the Surrey area for Praxair.
I currently am looking for a place to live and a garage to work out of (or I guess I could live in the garage too) I have a Durango project for wheeling as the family grew out of our last YJ.
Got two kids 5 and 1 1/2 and a GF they will be joining me in 5-7 month when her classes are done.
We do down hill mountain biking and Boating, whatever we feel suits us that day.

would appreciate any help in finding good areas to live, wheel, hike and boat oh and if anyone has a garage to rent that would kick but cause well they are not easy to come by.

Thanks for wasting your time by reading this hope to meet you all very soon my job starts on the 8th of march.

Thanks, Michael

Hey Bud Welcome to the site.
If you wanna live in an area with lots to do at an arms throw......Then Mission is the place.....cheapest gas
Right close to all the good wheeling spots.
Tons of lakes and rivers all around us.
Stave Lake Forestry Trail is Awsome.

Can you tell I live in Mission....LOL
and you are 11 minutes away from some of the best fly fishing in BC

ya mission was the place that sealed the deal on the job, but because I got no place to live at this point, and more importantly no garage I figure surrey might be an easier place to find all that stuff short notice. The GF already stated it has to be Mission or shes not coming, she will stay in Calgary.

get yourself a BC Backroaps mapbook too, the help on here can sometimes be um....vauge, but between here, getting out and the book you'll find tonnes of places to go/stuff to do..... and welcome! to both here and BC

Yep, that's me. Do you still have the Zuk? Michael is a good buddy of mine, so I hope you all are going to treat him terrible so he can run back home to Calgary. I'm gonna miss him. :D

Front suspension looks wicked... it would be cool to link the rear too and loose the 4" blocks...

Just sayin'

most Albertans go back after the cost of living shock hits them
same as most BCers come back after the flat land and brown water disgusts them

Thanks. Ha ha, yeah, it's more like 5" blocks. I might do something about that one day, but for now, the rear works pretty good with the trackbar. As they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. :)

Sounds like you would be happy living in the Stave Falls area in Mission . There are a TON of downhilling trail at your back door and the lake is only a few minutes away.

Nothing wrong with Surrey been here 40 years everywhere has some type of issues
want meth heads move to MethRidge

getting from Slurry to mission can take anywhere from 45 to 90 min depending on traffic, the new bridge works gooder but it is a toll
