Good job regurgitating the same post you made on easyloungin.

Am I the only one that is growing increasingly annoyed with this SnowboardAddiction troll? Stop with the thinly veiled threads to drive up your hit counts, buy some adpsace instead.

I hadn't seen that article before...I enjoyed it. I often wonder how people pull it off, move to the place of your dreams. Whistler is on my short list of places to move to for sure, I would probably end up in Vancouver, but that would blow current location out of the water.

There isn’t day that I don’t think about giving up what I have to move out some cool place where I can unlimited access to my recreations (mountain biking, snowboarding, back packing, rock climbing) The sad part is I have a great job that a lot of people would kill for….Starting in 2011 I will have 5 weeks vacation, I make descent money…I am respected among my co workers, subordinates and managers. My heart just isn’t in my career, it is in my recreations…At age of 34 I am feel like I am running out of time to make the move.

I wonder how people pull it off, some of my fears include not being able to make a living at all. Almost worse would be to be able to get by but not have enough money to participate in my recreations…that would be torture to live in whistler and not be able to afford to snow board…

I will have to say I have nothing but admiration for individuals that pull this kind life off, living to board or having a life that is all about recreation.

Has anyone on this board pulled this off, how old were you and are still living the dream now?how old are you now? How you do it?

Hey man you just have to do it!

I gave up a great job in Melbourne my home town to come work in a ski town in Canada. After two and a half years I'm starting to do well but this time I'm only 10 mins from the closest ski hill. I get to do all the recreation I want when I want it and I never sit in traffic! You are right about one thing though. At a point you will get a job that is too good to leave and all of a sudden you will be too old to do it!

So many runs so little time.

I've taken three chances in my life and I will take more!

1) I dropped out of a very highly ranked university because I wanted to work in a lumber yard and hang out with my friends on weekends.

2) After a year I returned to college, got a BS in SE, and moved to Portland, OR. I had 5,000 in my pocket and nothing waiting for me, not even a place to stay. It was great!

3) 2.5 years ago I got an opportunity to help start a company in San Francisco. I flew down here, found a place, and moved all in the span of 7 days.

.....

Life is all about opportunities to follow your heart. They wont always be the stuff dreams are made of. However, they will always make you happy in the long run!

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
