Right at the beginning of the Work Wild video it says, “out here, your commute looks a little different” (I should know, I have every part of the video memorized). That didn’t really hit home with me until today. It took me an hour to get to work. I’m know people complain about traffic all the time, but I don’t know if those people really have other options. They probably have to live in the city. I’ve worked in forest communities and would absolutely love to drive to work through the forest again like I used to.
I’m lucky I have a truck that basically looks like the one below, otherwise I would have long been lost in a pothole somewhere. Why does it seem so much worse in Edmonton than the rest of the province? I think I learned this in SOILS 210 class in University but can’t remember (If anybody can help me out, please do).
You may also be asking, why did I choose the city drive over the beautiful forest community commute? If I want to live in those communities so bad, and it’s an option, why don’t I do it. I’m doing this so that I can tell you not to choose the city route and stick to the forest. Believe me when I say you’ll miss it when you’re gone. There’s so many more amenities in these communities than there used to be. It’s not even a hardship living there anymore.
I know this video says Georgia, but I’m pretty sure I saw this in Edmonton last week.
