I am driving up to Vancouver on Wednesday morning for work. The official Google estimate of the drive time is 2h 42m but we all know that life is not that predictable. There is traffic, and there is a border crossing between A and B on the map! I could have flown, it’s a 50 min flight, and I could have taken the Amtrak train, but in the end it all comes out in the wash and it’s going to take 3 or 4 hrs to get there. And the car will let me stop on the way and drive around in the city a little bit (Canada drives on the right side of the road the way we do in the States).
