Personally I think its kinda close to the subdivision. I would be pissed if I lived there.
Saying that.... It would be a boost to kamloops.

Welcome to Kamloops Tom and Sharon, you've just arrived and you're doing good deeds already. The lower mainland will miss the efforts spent on behalf of DSBC and dual sporters in general.
Personally I'm not impressed with the thought of a mine right there, just over the hill SW of Kamloops upwind of 75% of the prevailing wind direction towards the Loops, not such a great plan. Good luck with the house hunting

Thank Guys

The house we finally put an offer on is only 3 kms from the proposed mine boundary. I had worked for Gibraltar mines many years ago, dust was never an issue, however truck traffic was and I understand that the trucks are going out another direction from the residents? Who knows maybe the mine will stall in its tracks? Its not like we have not see mines close down with depressed prices. Anyhow great view of the kamloopsians below, costco and walmart only minutes away, just like surrey but not the traffic. Not sure how I will fit in with my neighbours? I am sure there will be some riders nearby.

I love the riding above Kamloops and can't wait.

Congrats Tom You will be greatly missed. Thank you for all of your work in Chilliwack. Any truth to the rumor that Wayne Furness paid you off to move? :)

Enjoy the snow and the 3 weeks extra of winter. I lived on Garymede for 10 years. It would take lots to get me back on the hill.

Love,
your friendly neighbours at the valley floor :)

So what you are saying is don't sell my jeep just yet? Kamloops only get about 12 inches of rain per year, so how can that add up to any snow? Shit we get 12 inches of rain on a weekend before Sunday morning

Ah grasshopper you have much to learn. Like how you get to shovel that 12" of rain next winter. Don't worry, practice makes perfect.

not usually lots of snow but, at 900m of elevation in upper Aberdeen it's closing in on the 1300m at the sun peaks ski resort village, it'll hang around for awhile. Beautiful view from up there though, and closer to heaps of the dirty biking.

And brakes ....them BRAKES!!
A guy I worked with lived up there by the golf course (Across from 'somebodys' house) for about 10-12 years.
He moved down town into the valley and was freaked out because in 3 years he never had to do the brakes on his car ! LOL

REALLY nice view of the city and North valley though.

Hey Tom, look up the North valley, u see that BIG smooth snow caped 'hill'...Thats Mt Baldy. It has a year round Glacier on the North side of it. SPETACULAR VIEW from up there.
About 8km to the west of Mt Baldy id Dunn peak. U A hiker? :))):

Almost time for another ride to the top of Baldy.
8500 feet I think

It's not that you have to shovel it once...it's that that snow drifts back into the driveway as fast as you shovel it.

Aberdeen, where going downtown means you will never be off the brakes and going home you will never be off the gas. :)

Just for the record

It took almost 29 days for me to have a personal visit from the Kamloops Bylaw Department. Seems there are rules for how long you can park your RV on the road, and the rules get even get stricter with the larger RV you have. Anyhow I only have two hour parking limit. Nice Bylaw officer and she only gave me a warning.

While she was there I thought it would be a good idea to introduce Jake, he was on his best behaviour and was proving to be a real asset with my interaction with the Bylaws Officer.......................but then it happened, someone was walking their dogs and Jake was off, full tilt. Lots of barking screaming, bad language (not from me) finally got Jake on his leash and brought him back. Bylaws Officer reminded me about the leash laws again only a warning. I love warnings

Did she also remind you that you need to get a dog license? I see a house down the street from me came up for sale. It might have RV parking on it...you can check it out when you bring me your LSDS entry.

Priceless - this made my day Tom.
I'm certain that your relationship with the Bylaw department will bloom & become quite intimate over the coming months.

That's 15 days longer than I thought it would take for them to come and talk to you. Neil won our bet. Did you piss off one of your new neighbours and they ratted you out to the City ;-)
