Greetings
A little about myself, I graduated college, 1993, Electronic Engineering Technician, which after 11 years it accounts for nothing. Graduated college again in 2002, Business Administration (Accounting), which only goes to say I am capable of learning.

Researching ancient writings and the sciences since mid 2000 while raising three beautiful children. Research funding would be a great asset but that is a whole other story.
Originally from Ontario, Canada, the kids and I spent not quite 2 years on the farthest east coast, now on the furthermost west coast.
I have a brother in Tacoma, Washington; he has been deep into research for well over 30 years now.

Ha Ha, we have a lot in common. I also did EET years ago and worked nearly 9 years with Canadian Pacific as signals and communications tech. Then I quit and went to university to study administration. Presently I am an accountant and it has been up and down over the years here in Toronto.

Where are you on Vancouver Island? Quite a difference on each coast eh? (I have seen both of them).

Welcome and you will find a wide variety of characters around here. There is maybe a couple dozen of regulars. So enjoy your stay and may your learning be large!

I spent 2 winters on the island (Newfoundland), it happened to be their record worse winters. I refuse to buy a snow shovel ever again.
There is no comparison between the east coast (snow) and the west coast; I will not elaborate so as to not cause a rush of people to the west coast.
I am on Vancouver Island just west of Victoria, over looking a bay, the spit and a view of Olympic Peninsula.

How could you trade the west coast for Toronto or NS?

The island is very laid back I found. Victoria is a very pretty city and has a comfortable smugness about it. Yeah the island is a good place to be. Do you feel in anyway isolated there? Did they clear up all the problems with the ferry services in BC?

I would trade Toronto for N.S. in a second. It's home. I acually miss the Atlantic. When I get out of the airport I can smell it 20 miles inland where I coulpn't even smell it before. Victoria is a beautiful city, how do you like the view of the coastal mountains? I would visit, but I would live there, it's not home.

As for the smugness in Victoria, I dont know about that, I keep to the smaller towns, not crowded, not so busy and less or no pier pressure for kids.
Isolated? I find doing extensive research is more isolating than locale.
The kids and I drove west at the same time as the G7 or G8 meeting was in Alberta. We were fortunate to meet a couple groups of special equipped enforcement troops at a Tim Hortons; they arrived in their very nice total black van.
The mountains were beautiful, not the steep drive I had imagined.
