If you had to move to another country
« on: September 11, 2015, 11:11 »
what would be your first choice?

I'm thinking Canada. Main language is familiar, it has a reputation as a clean country with relatively little crime, has nice people, high standards of living with good healthcare, it's the 14th wealthiest nation in the world so job opportunities sound promising and it has slim chances of getting attacked or pulled into a war  :jees:

New sig, my old one is a dead link, so I changed it to something useless, like this text. If you read it, congrats, you wasted your time.

Hey, do you guys have "sawdust tracks"? As in nearby forest areas with paths cleared and filled mainly with sawdust and some smaller areas with sand and gravel. Meant for jogging, running, walking and skiing. They're also barred from motorized vehicles and sometimes bicycles too.

According to Wikipedia, there is no English equivalent, so I'm guessing that if they are there, they're not very common. German refers to it as "Finnenbahn". Here it's "pururata" (word-for-word translation: "powder track", but since in this case, "puru" refers almost exclusively to the powder from chipped wood, it's not specified as "sahanpururata", which would be "sawdust track")

To my knowledge, no we have nothing like that. There was supposed to be a 19 mile trail for hiking/walking/biking along an old long gone railroad line, but since that line ran through people's backyards, that idea was scrapped. Now trees and long grass have long taken over the path that rial line left, if you aren't old enough to remember one ran through that 19 mile stretch, you'd never know it existed.
