you can take the boy out of the north, but you can't take the north out of the boy....

With the upcoming move my thoughts have turned to how I will relate to my new Vancouver friends. How will I answer the inevitable questions about my hometown and life in Canada's north country? I have created a list of pre-determined answers to help me:

- its Prince George, not Pigs Gorge
- yes - we have running water, paved roads, electricity, indoor plumbing and MacDonlds - no, we have no Ikea
- yes, we have many trees and logging is our primary industry - no, I am not infected with the pine beetle
- yes, life goes on when it is -45 degrees and there is 2 feet of snow on the roads - we do have North America's first drive thru Starbucks
- it only took 1 day to drive to Vancouver and I have seen a roundabout before
- yes, I will let you try moose meat sausage if I can have some of your sushi
