Thanks for your input! Maybe I'll try it again this year. I guess I'll just keep checking WSDOT to make sure they're not doing any of that single lane bullshit. So much anxiety associated with the alternative route. Someone drive my car please.
This inquiry goes out to Vancouver BC residents (or northern Washington dudes) who have taken both US-2 and I-90 in the past couple years. 2 years ago I had a really bad experience on the I-90, traffic was nuts. I swear we sat for a good hour at least. It was so bad that I completely avoided it last year and took US-2 both ways, which was fine but the mountains are quite treacherous.
Anyway, I was wondering what your experiences have been like. This year I'm hoping to be across the border by 9:30-10 am on Thursday. I just want to get there super fast and painlessly because I am a huge baby who is afraid of driving.
I don't know, 7 hours seems like you would be cutting it kind of close. It usually takes me about 8-9. That might be due to my extreme aversion to the I-90. 5 or 6 am sounds reasonable though, if the line up isn't bad.
