story Lynn and Dixie tell often- partially because they love
to tell it and partially because sometimes they still find
it hard to believe themselves.
begins in early December of 1979. The Wheelers had a dream,
like so many others, of owning a home. Dixie was working as
a ticket manager at the fabled Queen Mary in Long Beach, and
Lynn worked in sales for a prominent hardware supplier. But
their lives took a turn for the better when, on a weekend getaway,
Lynn and Dixie discovered Big Bear.
paradise to both of us," Dixie says. "We knew on that first
weekend that this is where we wanted to spend the rest of
our lives." So much so, in fact, that the Wheelers bought
a newspaper, scoured the Real Estate section and shortly thereafter
bought a house in Big Bear.
where the story turns drastic. "We could not afford the home
and we had no jobs in Big Bear," Lynn says. "We could barely
afford to pay attention, let alone pay for a house.
Wheelers were determined to make their dream come true. During
the short time before they moved in, they scraped together
enough money to cover the down payment. Painfully, they had
to sell Dixie's beloved white Camaro to do so. But that pain
was lessened by the fact that Lynn and Dixie were married
not long thereafter.
finally moved into their new home, but they had no choice
but to keep their jobs in the Long Beach area.
nine months the Wheelers commuted from Big Bear to Long Beach
and back daily. They woke up at 4:30 every morning to be on
the road by 5:30 and spend three hours in rush hour traffic.
Then they'd turn around and spend three more hours on the
freeway coming home.
"By the time we got back to Big Bear, we were so exhausted that we'd have to go right to sleep so we'd have enough energy to make the drive again the next day," Lynn says. "Sometimes I still can't believe we did that."
Nearly two decades later, the Wheelers agree: the struggle was well worth it. The effort it took Lynn and Dixie to set their dreams in motion pays dividends daily, since they have found the perfect place to live and an ideal locale to raise their two children, Erika and Logan. In addition, Lynn and Dixie have devised a method of channeling their combined energies to set the dreams of others as well - specifically where Big Bear is concerned.
