I second this...as a new parent of a small baby I know for a fact we could not have done this (uproot ourselves for 2 years to a rural area with no support). Being a new parent is really hard, and I think a lot of first-time parents-to-be underestimate just how hard it is. OP definitely make sure you are mentally prepared for this move.clydelee2020 wrote: ↑ Speaking as a parent of young children, and having friends and family that headed out to fort mac for a couple years/ bounced around BC in telecom work a few, I'd like to mention something here that nobody else will touch on. I hope you and your spouse are mentally prepared for what lies ahead.
As for your original question, if I were you I would buy. Two years is a long time to live somewhere you're not comfortable in, especially with a newborn.
