Go find something else to do...

    One of the things about being a weekend warrior in CO -- you need to like preparation and early mornings unless you're okay with not being home until 9pm. Some of my friends get this, some do not. The ones that don't generally don't have much fun in the mountains during the winter because like of well-thought out plans makes their days suck.

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    Yes, I70 sucks on weekends. I'm guilty of bitching about it. It's also predictable as hell.
    A few 10-20 minute delays here and there don't ruin my day. When I drive into a standstill? That's on me.
    Exactly. You'd think people would just give up eventually.

    FWIW, I do think the toll lane is working. Problem is it's only a 13 miles solution. And those paying the tolls make up maybe 10 mins but still sit in ridiculous traffic up and back.

    I could not get my daughter moving Saturday morning, a friend pinged me he went by Evergreen Parkway about 6:55 smooth sailing. She doesn't get it together and in the pickup and it was about 7:30 when we hit the parkway. I see all three lanes blown up all the way back before the parkway and people are coming off to take 40. Hmmm...Hit it yesterday about 6:45 and blazed right up, cold as balls yesterday at the Love hoowee.

    Would be good!

    I've talked about a left lane license for years. More advanced driving test and higher allowed speed limit.

    Biggest traffic jam I've had to deal with all season was in the McD's drive through this morning. You guys have my sympathy.

I considered bailing more than once while in the canyon, but still made it to Vail Pass by 10AM. 70 past Floyd was moving well for a weekend IMO...
    Took I-70 because we met up with some friends in Golden.

    I saw what I was getting into on Saturday AM after getting out a bit later than I should have. Bailed on I70 and went to Eldora. Even after doing that I was there 10 minutes before they opened. Glad it is an option on the RMSP+ pass.

    I was expecting to see $20-$30 tolls some days. I haven't seen it above $8 yet.

    I think I'm going to get out on Sunday to either Copper, WP or Eldora. Day trip from Denver. With snow the next couple of days starting with a few inches last night, the holiday on Monday and the Broncos kicking of at 2:40 MDT Sunday to what extent will Denver people stay home on Sunday?

    I'm debating on whether I attempt Copper/WP or settle for Eldora.

    Why not sus it out to Floyd and bail to Eldora if it's bad?

    Holiday weekends are always weird and hard to predict. The Broncos makes it even harder. But I think that Sunday will be a good day to day trip; I doubt you see insane traffic.

    That is pretty much what I plan to do. That worked great last weekend. I still made it to the lift corral before Eldora was open. I'm leaning towards Sunday being an okay day to get up I70

    I'm staying at STFU&gbtw house this weekend. He is going to show me what winning at I-70 traffic looks like. Then we will watch the Broncos win against the asshole east coast team. All will be right in Clear Creek County.

    I drove east-bound last night (coming home from St. George) and the conditions between Vail and G'town were absolutely craptastic. I'm glad there was a car 100ft in front of me so I could see where I was going.

    The best was the guy just east of Loveland in a Jeep, who was literally sliding down I-70 going 5 mph with a cop right behind him. His rear wheel was locked up, so I have absolutely no idea what was going on.

    Got up to the Basin early yesterday (Friday). Left the parking lot at about 2:10.

    Including a stop at Mountain Buzz in Georgetown for an awsome-tastic Greek Pizza, I pulled into my garage at 5:06pm (1:29 time from Georgetown to Eastern Boulder County).

    No affiliation, but give these guys some business and support a genuine maggot type local business. Any place with a sign on the door: "please remove crampons before entering" is my kind of place: http://mountainbuzzcafe.com/

    Mtnbuzz is a joke... designed solely to take money off Denverites who think a gruff attitude and shitty service makes a joint "mountainish". Drive for another 35 seconds and leave your cash at The Alpine Inn. Or if you want Italian instead of Pizza, keep driving for another 90 seconds to Troia's Cafe.

    Were you wearing your TGR screen name on your jacket? Did you walk in the door with a gaper Denverite attitude? They've always been nice to me.
