I'm going on my fourth year of living over here, it got me thinking about what I had to adjust to or miss about the mainland.
1) Mission Raceway.
I used to spend many Friday summer nights out at Mission. Although I have never been to western speedway, I can't imagine it's even close to the same.
2) Stock levels of retail stores, having to special order more often.
In Vancouver if one store was out of stock, there were usually many more other stores which would have stock of the item I was looking for.
I don't know if there are more of them here, or if they are just in greater concentration.
4) The Fox and Rock101
I just don't get good enough reception of those stations in my car, where I listen to the radio the most.
The Q plays too much shit like Triumph, Styx, and Journey, and sometimes new pussy shit like "Train". Would it kill them to play a little more Zeppelin? More AC/DC? I can't remember the number of times now I've woken up to "Don't stop believing" on my Alarm clock radio...
The Zone doesn't play enough heavy stuff, more metallica, less deathcab for cutie, Teagan and Sara, and metric please
5) Tourists and old Farts
Never really had as much of the annoyance of either of these when I lived in Vancouver (Richmond)
