I never understood why people who live in Denver don't drive down Friday night and spring for a motel?
That drive back on Sunday sucks, though. I've never had to do it (thank goodness), but I done seen the traffic plenty of times

|crimsonfox||That traffic on the way down always seems worse to me than the traffic going up. Either way, I was debating whether or not I wanted to get a pass, but seeing that it is going to cost me $40 less than last year, I might as well.|

|BurtonAvenger||I solved my frustration I just live up here and laugh at the people that have to drive up. I do like playing can we tow their car in my parking lot at my condo though that's always an amusing option. Just like the oops I locked the door to the hot tub sorry you can't come in you don't live here.|

Yeah, every study seems to be the same.
Yep, we need to do something. Nope, we don't have the funding for it.

They have been doing "studies" on I70 since I moved here in 1990. They just seem to come up with more "studies". The problem is the money ain't there to widen it to an 8 lane highway with light rail. Plus it'll be a huge cluster fuck of a project. 10 years minimum to complete, maybe 20. Still, if they had of started it in 1990 it would probably be done by now.
It is what it is. If you are not opposed to early starts, it's pretty manageable, but it is also a source of frustration for lot's for Denver locals. I sure would be happy if they'd do something about it, besides starting another study...

|killclimbz||Just for the record. The I70 shit show has been the I70 shit show since before I moved out here. That was 1990, and it was pretty much just as bad then as it is now. The season pass thing really didn't change anything. Maybe, just maybe the bad traffic is extended a few weeks longer with the cheap passes. Regardless it still sucked in 1990 and it still sucks in 2011...|

Ive been working in hospitals for 15 years, i have called in maybe one time. I am very particular about being punctual and at work. Thats why im gonna live in Vail and not commute even to minturn..... that and if I live in vail I can make the most of my epic pass usage.
I would have lived in breck if I could have made more.money at st anthonys summit hospital in frisco though. Seemed much more chill than Vail. Locals were the same in.both places though, all very nice with laid back mentality. I would never choose to live in the denver area though.
