So i was just playing on the internet, got to thinking. What happens when the weekend comes and people travel toy our mountain? Man, our highways get jammed so bad, check out theese pics..this is I70 through Colorado.
dude, dont even start, ittl take you over 3 hours to get to the nearest mountain in washington if youre near the city on a weekend, traffic here is a joke, we're rated #3 in the nation for worst traffic, behind ny and boston. trust me, in washington its either live at the mountain with no nightlife and serious local weirdos or deal with the traffic. Id move to montana if i were looking to avoid traffic.
nope its not like that at all, but i usually leave earlier then most people in portland do to beat the traffic. but sometimes on the way back depending if there is an accident or not it can look like that.
yea dude, im just saying, washington is not the solution, we've got 3 mountains (maybe 4) and the closest you can get is far. doesn't even matter. i feel for you though, sounds like colorados got it tough. maybe even tougher than us. our roads just suck.
anyway, it's only like that when it snows and all these random cars with Vermont plates can't make it up the hill and slide out and get stuck.. see that dude with Jersey plates going around you and getting first tracks? that's me.. bitches.
really though, you'd think they're used to that kind of weather? no..?
JEA!!!! JERSEY REPRESENT!!!.... when i got out to utah, i couldnt understand how people thought the nj drivers were bad, i mean i know were aggressive and can be a tad "road rageish" sometimes, but god, ive never seen a larger bunch of incompetent drivers in the world!!! especially on snowy days going up the canyon....
oh yea, noone move to SLC... takes almost 5 hours to get to any of the major 7 resorts on any given day... and by that i mean no more the 45 minutes during the worst day.
When night skiing isnt open, everyone rushes for the cars at 4:00. Takes an hour to get up there, 2-3 coming down, stop and go on a two lane mountain highway, because of some stupid fuckheads genius idea to put a timed light in at Sultan. Fuck US 2.
What are you guys really complaining about? I'd give my left testicle to be able to drive to a ski resort most weekends! I know traffic can be annoying but you should be really grateful that you can just hop in a car and get there. For me to get to a close resort i have to get on a bus, then a plane, then fork out some money for a taxi, ski for a week or two and come home.
So if anyone is willing to trade there current traffic-ridden nightmare of reality for a testicle PM me.
P.S I'm joking about the testicle bit
P.P.S But if you seriously want to trade get in contact.
ive got two hills around me....both suck pretty bad, but theres never any traffic..one i take the interstate to, and there are never any cars so i tap on the cruise control and go around 80 all the way there...the other hill is only like 20 min from my house, but i have to drive through the boonies to get there...skiing sucks in NY.
