The road to Vancouver 2010 - literally

For those of you who are going to the Olympics in February, keep these two facts in mind: It's a two-hour drive from downtown Vancouver to Whistler (in the summer), and it's a three-hour drive from downtown Vancouver to downtown Seattle (after slogging thru Vancouver's residential neighborhoods, and if the border's clear).

I'm sure they've fixed the road from Vancouver to Whistler. At least, you've gotta hope. It's a beautiful drive - one of the prettiest I've ever been on, in fact - but the road is just damned awful. Last time I was on it, it was only a two-lane road, too. So good luck with that.
