I'm just 37 now and when you're that 40 year old guy still out partying it becomes lame reeeeaaaallllllllllllly fast. Most of the 40+ year old guys chasing girls in their 20s are total sociopathic cokeheads with very little in the way of redeeming qualities.


Besides... just look what greets me when I go out to get a coffee today:







I pay $2450 a month for this "cultural enrichment"?


Honestly, I've had enough, I moved down here to feed my creativity and get material for my books. Now that I've soaked up enough insanity and human degradation I'm all like:


I was a coin flip away a week ago upgrading to a nice suite on the border of Gastown for over $2000/month. It didn't make sense at all.

Living in the area during winter, I was always aware when it hadn't rained for a few days. This is because there would be a huge chance you'd step on a huge gob of hork if you weren't careful. Step into your car with new floor mats and heat on high? No thanks.

Wake up in the middle of the night because prostitutes and drug dealers are fighting and yelling at each other? Maybe they were johns. I dunno.

Drunken and disordered kids yelling on the streets 2 am on a weekday? I used to be a kid but I was cognizant if I were in a residential area. One night it sounded like sorority girls. They were chanting a Fergie song about spending lots of money.

A sick person yelling and begging for help 4am in the morning on a weekday? Kind of wanted to help him out at a more reasonable hour.

Some dumbass yelling at the top of his lungs celebrating at 1am after the Canucks won a home game in the first round? Sad and a bad omen.

You could always move in across the river in Abbotsford, then you can hang out in Cactus Club with the gang bangers and watch them peel out in their C-classes and chromed-out H3s.

OP, have you considered Langley? Or the parts of Surrey everyone just calls Langley? Also mostly white people but they all just keep to their own and ride horses
i always found langely to be a carbon copy of maple ridge, except langely is closer to surrey so

In Gastown I literally just witnessed a lanky 6'6+ black guy with a huge, wild afro running on all fours like an ape across Carrall and Cordova shirtless and a pager fell out of his pocket. He then jumped in front of a transit bus going full speed to grab it and barely dodged out of the way at the last second

Not kidding at all, this neighborhood is such a

Risking your life... for a pager?

Only partially. I know for a fact that Cactus Club has an excellent surveillance system and are very active with APD and Restaurant Watch to keep the gang members in check.

I think most of the Abby gangs have moved on the Milestones or something.

As someone who lives out that way (Pitt Meadows, so close enough lol) East Maple Ridge has become quite something over the past few years.

Its is an interesting mix of the older, white trash type families that have been there for years, now all the young 'hip' families are moving out that way with their 2.5 children into the newer developments.

Then you have the homeless. There are A LOT of crackhead/mentally ill people living on the streets out that way, and its a huge issue in the community right now. In fact, our 'tent city' was front page on the Province a few weeks back. If you think they're all hanging around downtown Maple Ridge, you'd be wrong. It's amazing how far a lot of these crackheads travel on their (often) stolen bikes. Shit, they all love recycling day. Gives them the excuse to ride around collecting cans/bottles, all the while scoping out properties to come back to, to steal shit.

Honestly, as much as I hate Ridge, and would never live further east than Pitt... I hate Langley just as much. Just as many white trash idiots, and probably more white, wannabe tough-guy gangster posers. Seems like every dude out that way is lookin for a fight.

Langley's only saving grace, is that there is a lot more car guys that live there, and on any given sunny day, you're bound to see quite a few nice muscle car/hot rods.

But then I'm just getting old too, and I've had enough of the Lower Mainland. Getting too crowded for my liking. I'm hoping to move somewhere where I can have an acre or 2, a shop/garage to wrench on my cars, pack of dogs, guns, and a sign at the top of the driveway that says "No Trespassing, Fuck Off"

One of my buddies lives in the apartment at 223 & North, his balcony faces towards the Caddy Shack parking lot. Everytime I'm out there visiting, there's always entertainment. From crack heads & hookers camping/yelling/pulling tricks in the bushes beside the chevron, to drunks putting their car into the ditch along north.

The best night was when a drunk smashed his way through a concrete barrier on the caddy shack lot (he obviously thought going straight through it was the way to exit the parking lot), pushing the concrete down the 2' embankment and wedging his car on top of it, then watching other drunk dudes try to free this guy's car by pushing it with their trucks. By the end of the night, drunk dude was in handcuffs and his car was thoroughly fucked up. Have it all on video, I should get it from my buddy and post it.

And to think my buddy waited in line for a pre-sale for that place many years ago... Like, what was he thinking?
