Traffic Woes

Had to deliver a load of styrofoam from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta to Whistler, B.C. Canada for Friday morning.  The ride from Alberta to B.C. was okay as usual but, for those of you who know what I’m talking about, the traffic was horrendous on the Sea to Sky Highway.  They are rebuilding the highway for the 2010 Winter Olympic games of course, but idiots still come out of the woodwork even in a 50 km zone.  I had cars/pickups passing me on narrow roadways nearly hitting construction workers in the process.  Amazes me that someone could be in that much of a hurry.  Driving a tractor and 53′ trailer around the Village of Whistler is no picnic either.  Luckily, the parking lots on Lorimer Boulevard were practically empty and I could spend the night for unloading first thing in the morning.  They are putting one of those environmentally friendly roofs on the library/museum, hence the need for styrofoam.  I like hauling styrofoam as it is a light load and pays well, not to mention the savings in fuel.  Stopped at North Vancouver on the way back to load some 24″x.750″x60′ pipe to be delivered in Nisku, Alberta by monday morning.  There goes the fuel savings.  Bye for now.
