I live in Chilliwack, British Columbia, and have been here since 
moving from Victoria in 1988. My dear hubby was retired from the armed forces and we made a few trips each year to Reno with our car. The cost of taking the ferry each trip and the time lost waiting for the 
ferry and the crossing was what convinced us to move away from the island and come to the mainland. 

Cancer took him from me in 1997 and in 2001 I met Doug at a singles dance  and 4 months later he convinced me to marry him.
He is a good man, and takes good care of me, but he is not and never could be my soul mate. I believe that only happens once in life. 
Since 2009 we have been spending our winters  down south, the 1st 3 winters in Needles , California then last winter, 2012, in the Mohave valley. This winter, 2013 we  have reserved our spot in Fort Mohave, 
Arizona. For 5 months, we live very comfortably in our 5th wheel trailer.
