We Have Arrived!

Faro, Yukon! Our new home!

So who are we? For past readers you know all about us from reading our blog at http://wenttokugluktuk.blogspot.com. For anyone else- here is a bit about us!

My husband and I moved to Hay River, Northwest Territories right after we were married in 2003. We lived there for two years. I harassed my husband to let us move further north for some adventure so we moved up to Kugluktuk, Nunavut and we were there from June 2005 to January of this year. We have just relocated to Faro in the Yukon. Third territory is a charm!

My husband is a registered nurse who now nurses at oil rigs and other industrial sites. Right now he is back out in the NWT working. I edit study guides from home and raise our little boy who is eight and a half months old. We have two cats, Tweak and Freak, who currently hate us thanks to two flights and 2500km in a truck.

We have purchased a great home here in Faro. It is a very quiet community that so far seems quite peaceful- a nice change from Nunavut! The town is a bit of ghost town with numerous homes and businesses boarded up since the mine closed down a few years ago. We moved here because of super cheap house prices (seriously if you want a cheap home, move here!) and I felt I would be safe here when my husband is away at work. It also offers the kind of lifestyle we enjoy. My husband and I are big into hunting and fishing. Quadding too as soon as we buy new ones! Had to sell those and the skidoos back in Kugluktuk.

So that is us in a nutshell!

Yay! How exciting! I love that you are starting a new blog. Will this occur for every new town? I hope so. I think you should start one called "Hunter in the City" for when he comes to visit me.

Hey, did your pepper seeds ever make it to you? Looks like you'd need a greenhouse, though, to grow them in Faro.
