    Anyone come here???

    I feel bad that I can't go to any of the PT meetings So I was wondering if any were planning to come to my part of B.C. anytime? I can't really go outside of the Valley ...Has anyone been to Kelowna before? Or anywhere in the Okanagan Valley?

    I wish I could drive too lol. Kelowna is about 5 hours away from Vancouver. It's in the Okanagan Valley, along with many other cities, like Vernon, Penticton, Westbank, Peachland, Summerland and so on.

    I wish I could go to a meeting, but I know that most of the people on PT are from the states, and the ones in Canada mostly aren't in B.C. So the only one I'm able to meet is Tikeyas_mom lol.

    I have been in Kelowna 4 years ago. Spent one night in the Abbot Villa hotel. Was sitting in the sun in a pub on the lake. Saw your lokal seasnake. Had some wine for dinner.
    I thought it was a pretty mediterranean place for British Columbia

    lol, I haven't been many places so I wouldn't know if it's mediteranean heehee
    So you saw the actual ogopogo (seasnake) or the pretend one beside the beach? I think the only way people would know about this place is the ogopogo lol. (and our many beer and wine factories )

    I have friends in Vernon and might be making a trip there in the summer. Will let you know.

    Slick and Wolfsoul- aren't you two about three hours apart? I am looking at an atlas, outdated, I am sure, but, it seems like New Westminster, Kelowna and Vernon are pretty dern close...Course, this is an 'American' atlas...maybe the distances have been distorted??????

    Depends on which route I take. I can get to Vernon in about 4.5 hours and Kelowna is only another hour away. So if I plan a trip up there I will try to meet Wolfsoul. I can't get any vacation time until June. I'll PM as the time gets closer.

    Well, I'm pretty sure we are about five hours apart Because my mom told me that Vancouver is about 5 hours away, and New Westminster is part of it...hmmm..
