The drive is a breeze. Most people spend longer in there cars driving shorter distances - and they have that bloody bumper to bumper to deal with. Takes me just over an hour to get to my office in Coquitlam and it takes two people the same amount of time to get here from Pt Moody on an average day. Thing is, I am moving and have the sun rising over the ocean - awesome commute.
Get a diesel Jetta and enjoy 45mpg and laugh at the #1 Hwy parking lot.
Teh sun rises over the ocean now?
My things have changed since I left!
Squamish is a great town with great people. No doubt about that.
Real estate is overvalued but seems to be correcting itself. If any of you are looking to move there, look at Brackendale. Dont fall for the "its 10 minutes further from Vancouver" bs.
10 minutes further away is a good thing.
The only downsides to Squish are that the upsides are also attracting the vancouver douchebags that cant afford kits or Lynn Valley and want to gentrify the whole town (eg. Get rid of the logging trucks ermagerd!!), Sunday afternoon whistler traffic and the rain.
Oh, and city council and the mayor are a bunch of dumbasses…yes, you too Brian.
But you never know, you may see me back there again some day.
