So, where would you go? Vancouver is now too much for you. The outer burbs are not enough and the commute between them too long and irritating. You think that it is no longer much fun in Vancouver. You decide; “It’s time to go!”

Within the last 100 years we have altered the temperature of our normal environment to the extent that we are setting records for heat, altering migration patterns of wildlife and have turned the arctic into a cruise-ship route. Lots of things are on the move, so where would you go?
Going north ‘up’ Canada by any definition is flirting with being off the grid so maybe you not only commit to moving but you commit to moving off the grid as well? Does seem a bit radical, don’t you think? Or is it? Lesser beings have done it. You even know of a few. They weren’t special, wealthy or skilled and they are happy. They did it. So, it can be done. “If Dave and Sally can do it, any doofus and dickhead can do it and I definitely qualify for that!”

I’ve been thinking about it…….of course, the BC coast is a good place, Been good to us. Strongly recommended. But you have to be good with boats and such. And we are on the firing line between the US and China. And we are right under the faulty, unreliable ICBM missile trajectory of North Korea. It truly is great here but we are in the right place to suffer some collateral damage should there be an armed conflict amongst those belligerents. Something to consider. Plus, if Trump’s America prevails, there may be more than a few American migrants heading north. Could get crowded up here.
And everyone desires waterfront because Zombies can’t swim. Jus’ sayin’………..
I think New Zealand is the best bet. I’d consider Argentina, too. Maybe Tasmania. Overall, I think the southern hemisphere will suffer the least. And, it seems, all Hell could break loose in Campbell River…..what with all the ‘mericans, zombies and errant missiles.
But most people would not leave their own country. I know that so here’s a selection of other places worth considering: PEI, Nova Scotia and, especially Newfoundland. All three are beautiful and all three will be more like the Bahamas within the next few years. Build out of concrete in case the hurricanes get stronger but, other than that, if you are gonna become extinct sooner rather than later, there is no better group to go out with than Newfies. They know how to party and have a good time in all circumstances!
To some extent, this post is tongue-in-cheek but who amongst you has not considered moving? And who has NOT considered moving off the grid (given the topic I sometimes write about)? And, given that the world is changing fairly drastically these days, who wouldn’t look at their options?
