    No, it's just having to go from townhouse to townhouse. I don't want to have to pay strata, but I guess this is the world we live in now.

    I'm glad I was at least to live here for a few years. When I was wasting away in Edmonton I couldn't wait any longer. Even if we do shuttle down to Victoria or end up on the mainland if wife wants reg force with the air force, then i'm happy enough to know I was able to be here for a bit and enjoy some ocean.

    Oh man, sorry to hear that..I think I may even have asked you that before. Great little spot there, for sure.

    It's growing and growing, so many people from the mainland coming out here and scooping up houses after selling their vancouver homes. I don't blame them, we will be selling our townhouse for big profit, there have been 2 units in our small 10 unit complex that have both sold 120K higher than original purchase price. We will probably end up in Vic..I'd like to secure a contract with the base and do ALL of their lots. I know a guy who has the contract to maintain the lawns of the PMQ's and that contract alone covers his business costs, and everything else is gravy for him. Where abouts in the Valley your folks live, Chon?

    Hahaha oh, not at all! It's just a parking lot cleaning business. Simple and has the ability to make some coin. Not really a secret, anybody in any community can do it, just hopefully not mine before I get to it My original idea was to start a small company for Veterans picking up trash in neighborhoods or in ditches along the highway. I believe where we live is so nice and we should take pride in where we live. There really wasn't a way to make money for employees by doing this, so I thought if I was to get a few contracts on huge parking lots I could go in early or late hours and remove junk/waste/cig butts everything short of using a commercial sweeper. Generally people charge $30-50 per hour and contracts can have you visiting a site 2-3 times per week.

    Ya, exactly...I agree with what both you and @chon derry are saying. I just need to get settled in my eventual career first. One of the endeavors has very little overhead and would only be a 1 man show for the time being. Only problem is I would need 3-4 strong contracts to make it worth my while. Wouldn't want to be doing a side hustle and breaking even on it haha.
  9. Romantic Love - fate or choice?

    Hahaha...well, it's not always sunshine and rainbows. Just like even close dude buddies, still standard bickering and eye rolling moments. I could definitely go for a big 649 win!

    I'm sure people may remember my previous posts about potentially starting a side business, I have always been interested in being an entrepreneur but without any formal business schooling or knowledge it is more of a glamorous thought. I'm a bit of a reality show junkie (It's my guilty pleasure and I have my reasons) so I watch Dragons Den/Shark Tank, etc. I have always been so jealous of people that actually take the plunge and do it (large or small scale!) I have a couple of smaller ideas with minor start up costs. Whenever I get close to starting to put actual pen to paper or keystrokes to emails? I talk myself out of it. It could be my current situation in limbo waiting on school or my other potential 'career'....it is always just something on my mind, maybe once I get established, i'll start my side hustle!
  11. Romantic Love - fate or choice?

    My wife and I are both hockey players and played at respectable levels...We love to drink beer and watch/talk hockey together. We play on the same beer league team, even paired up on D together sometimes! I really just found somebody I wanted to hang out with and who enjoyed hanging out with me. Doesn't hurt that she is very easy on the eyes, too. I won the lottery.
  12. New Ram

    Had an 09 Ram 1500 and loved it, there was a recall on something to do with the power steering in 2010 but went to my Jeep in 2011 and can't quite remember specifically what the problem was. Currently drive a 14 Nissan Titan and it's been a lot of fun ! My buddy has a 13 Ram 1500 and for a 13 the interior and console are awesome, way better than mine. I know that isn't the be all/end all but just something I noticed.

    I'm feeling it for sure. The strength I had on my first 2 lifts back this week felt great! Love feeling strong on a cut...until everything is depleted again haha.
