this is why I think Vancouver is so dangerous now. People buy houses as investment not homes. and this whole FOMO thing is not helping… get in now at your own risk, better to invest in oil.;)

Gotta top out eventually though… but I guess people have been saying that for like 15 years now.

No signs of topping out. +1 billion since we bought our place.

talked to a realtor the other day who told me houses here are starting to sell in under 24hrs and going for higher than asking price as well - surprise surprise, the buyers are all from Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and a few bigger US cities.

As your paradise starts to crumble, I guess you've got to change mine, eh?

There were cherry blossoms and 15 cm fresh snow on the three skihills in the background this morning as I rode my bike to work in March.

The end is near!!!

The apocalypse is near.

I had a hell of a time finding a spot in my bike route where I could capture blossoms and snow.

Screw buying land in the Van area. I think I'll pick up something like an Earthroamer, and park/live wherever the fuck I want. Like on the front lawns of vacant owners' homes.
