Hi and welcome! My name is Gord and I am the face behind this Okanagan Valley Guide website.
I don't know about you but whenever I visit a website I like to check out the "about me" or "about us" page to find out who is giving me the information I am after.
I built this site because I love the Okanagan and I wanted to share what I have learned and discovered from living in what I can only describe as a paradise.
I was born in Vancouver on the south coast of the province of British Columbia in Canada. I grew up there and then moved several times to different communities in the Vancouver area.
As an adult I vacationed many times in the Okanagan Valley region, which is only about a five hour drive from the coast. I have stayed at most of the communities in the Okanagan and have enjoyed every single one of them.
The hot summer weather the Okanagan is famous for and the endless activities brought me back here year after year.
I decided I had to find a way to make the Okanagan my permanent home.
A work-related transfer made my dreams come true in the summer of 1995. I moved to Vernon in the North Okanagan and I have enjoyed every moment of living here since!
This love for the Okanagan wasn't the only reason that I wanted to build this website. I have always worked the traditional "9 to 5" job and I was looking for something that might become a home-based business.
I searched the internet but all I could find were these "get rich quick" schemes that promised I could become a millionaire overnight with little or no effort on my part.
I continued to search and then one day I came across a website by the name of Site Build It (SBI) . I researched this company and lo and behold this is what I had been looking for all along.
I figured this company, with its money back guarantee, must have a great product they were so confident that I would succeed!
I took the plunge and ordered their system. And you know what? It is one of the best decisions I have ever made!
I enjoy building my Okanagan Valley Guide website and helping you, the visitor, learn all about this wonderful part of the world.
If you are thinking of a place to have a vacation, a place to set down your roots or even a place to retire you have come to the right place.
I have discovered many great places in the Okanagan and my hope is that this site will inspire you to make some wonderful discoveries and memories of your own!
I hope you return to my site often as I continue to add more information and other exciting stuff to my site building adventure.
