I think…

That I want to sell everything I own and move to the remotest part of Newfoundland. My last escape up the mountain doesn’t seem to be far enough.

Remotest from people in the general sense sounds good, but I'd still like to sit in a cafe across from a particular person

Finding your geographic comfort zone is legit

However this entire planet Earth is an increasingly challenged dimension for all, regardless of where we choose to live. So what then is our priority of life? I'm not an enlightened Guru but best I can see it, our priority is simply to face the storm and work on our inner-life to become a better human being. Love over hate, and mind/body ascension over craving the base desires of over eating, drinking, drugging and craving the 'wild thing.' :-) Sending y'all best vibez in 2024/ 5784 on the Sumerian calendar (now called the Hebrew calendar), and something like 12,225 on the Vedic calendar.

I’m so immensely in favour of this. I hope like Hell it works out for you. I mean it… there’s no facetiousness implied or intended.

My wife and young son and I have been contemplating the very same: Newfoundland and Labrador specifically.

It’ll be a cold, hard, brutal life, but it will be tenfold better than living in the Lower Mainland of BC.

In a place that remote, I should think that the end will come there last.

Labrador has some isolated pristine places.

Why?

Just drive 2-3 hours in any direction from Vancouver and you'll be in the middle of nowhere- but with easy access to supplies.

The remotest parts of Newfoundland are being decommissioned dis-incorporated depopulated and closed down because there are no economic reasons to live there any more and it's too expensive to service the few remaining people. Northern Labrador cost of living is provoking protest there. I watched the USSR economically collapse 30 years ago and now it seems I'm seeing the same thing happen in what we used to call "the free world".

Why not just simply move down to the US, there are more places to hide and most of it is a lot warmer than Canada.

Newfoundland? Go to mountain community in Bali. Cooler temperatures and you will never have to see snow or sleet.

Agreed that getting away from the overpriced and now way overcrowded mess that the lower mainland has become is desirable, but why would you go all the way into the wilds of Newfoundland or Labrador?

Take into consideration that as your son becomes a young man, he might get sick of living out in the boonies and want to live in a city where he can go to parties and fun public events. He might even run away from home in his teens.

You could just go live in some small town that is many kilometres from any big city.
