Do you know where 7 Persons is or Winnifred, then you're a true Albertan. If not then you're probably a Newfie moving in during the boom times (and wasn't there for the last bust in the 80's). Get it while it's hot, but get the h*ll outta there before it busts. No doot aboot it.
Didn't see your location, Calgary- you're pretty well hooped. Just think of the resale value if you ever sell will be better than trying to unload a Klipsch sub or any sub that easily accessible there. You're making a killing in Calgary - what's an extra $154 dollars? They're paying ppl $14/hr to work in a doughnut shop??? - You're gonna crash when oil and commodities drop - Can't last, but get all you can while you're there
Bitter, no I'm not a newf...not that theres anything wrong with that, but good guess. I am a supplanted Ontario native thats been here 10 years. I'm here for the long haul and have nothing to do with Oil/gas. Just staying in my bunker when it all goes south.
Conversely, my relatives used to live in North Van, then Surrey before Expo and got out after the massive influx and moved to the wack. Just wait until after 2010 in Bongcouver and you will have to move to Merritt to escape the crime and rising house costs.
As for being able to waste $154 on shipping because of some prosperity....I could just by Monster Cables to do that.
My neighbour has a PO box in Kalispell MT, so that part is now solved. Aaaaaah.....inexpensive shipping and no sales tax, this is the life.
The only problem now is what to put in my 16x20'x8' room. STF-3 or VTF2-MKII which is similarly priced. Anybody got any suggestions for that kind of space, please let me know.
Enjoy the weather and Granville Island Heffenweisen. I love that stuff.
