because sometimes they still find it hard to
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
was 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.
is 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.
But the 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.
Wheelers finally moved into their new home, but
they had no choice but to keep their jobs in the
Long Beach area.
over 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.
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."
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.
