Good luck in your new job and finding a home.

In Sicamous, yellow building east of Tim Horton's, is for sale. Apartment upstairs and antique store downstairs.

What is your job on the railroad? Would you see the train hobos - poor people riding the trains?

I know of a couple guys who got on with CPR 3 or 4 years ago and they moved to Cranbrook for the work. I'm thinking the Okanagan is a whole lot nicer then Cranbrook though! You'll have to find some good quadding in your new location for us to try out, that run up Tillicum was awesome. Can't wait 'til the snow melts to do it again, but at this rate that may be sometime in August.

Good luck with the new job Lawrence! You still going to head back to Nakusp to help with the mud bogs every year? If they're still on.

check out Canoe, that's where I am...the houses are still relatively affordable, and it's right on the lake, just outside Salmon Arm, but not so close that you get all the scum with it.

I live in Canoe also. It's a great little place; right next to the lake and a 2 minute drive out of Salmon Arm.

With sicamous only 31K from salmon arm, most people come to salmon arm for shopping, and outings....

Canoe is good, but no matter where in canoe you are, you feel the vibrations from that damn train....

If I had to pick, I would look in the Ranchero, or Gleneaden area's...
