I can't wait to take it!  I haven't been in the new skytrain yet and looking forward to it.  

I'm not sure when though....

I heard the ride is free today?

It was completely overcrowded yesterday.. otherwise we would have gone just to see something useful we spent money on.

I loved the news of people there protesting about how 'their' money was wasted on this instead of healthcare and housing. When you looked at the article they sure looked like they could afford to put into it.

I've got upass, so I'll probably ride it a lot on bored sundays.

When coming from downtown there's a huge light at the end of the tunnel effect going on.

Oh god, don't do it.  The prairies were the most boring stretch of any place I have ever had the misfortune of having to travel through in my whole life.

lol PC

someone has a video on youtube that shows the entire route from Winnipeg to Saskatoon via yellowhead highway (which i'm taking). I enjoyed it.

I dunno, there's always been this rural part of me that longs to live in a prairie like place. Although I'd go for Montana big sky country (Butte or Missoula) or Rawlins Wyoming most likely. The Jackson area is superb, but really expensive.


My best bud lives in Winnipeg, and I'm picking up someone in Saskatoon, heading to Drumheller to fullfil a childhood dream, camp out in Banff, Rogers Pass, then decide on whether to drive the entire Sea to Sky to Whistler or just take the Coquihalla back to Vancouver. If I take the Coke, I'm hitting up some winery tours.

I'm sure he just filmed 5 minutes of the journey, then put it on a loop.

Banff is beautiful, as is the Sea to Sky route.

Indeed on the sea to sky, and I just love really small bc towns/villages. I always talk about Pemberton strawberries for some reason.
I'm worried about all the fire damage.

I like the train but don't understand the seats. I think they're made for tall people. lol. Less seats but lots of standing room.
