    Edmonton Thread- Merged

    Personally, working on the base, I'ld rather live N of 153 Ave and between 127 and 82 Street.  Lots of newer areas in there as well as some with a few years on them.  I've only been here since '97 and I've seen a lot of growth in that time, can't imagine the difference since you were here!

    Edmonton Thread- Merged

    Hey there, I am in NE Edm and it's not bad.  Getting more services and bigger stores in the area.  Although having the police helicopter buzzin around the sky all night does get on the nerves...  There are decent homes just south of the base around castle downs. Dylan

    Second Language Training ( SLT )

    Serious?  Or are you just teasing me.  I really don't want to have to maintain ankle boots day and day out if not needed.  Would be great if I could wear combats.  Was it a group decision or individual?  I am sure you would want to maintain some kind of consistancy.
