Question, Anyone go to Surrey Often??

The bridge was burned on Sunday and it will be closed for almost 1 month.
i was on my way to SFU surrey and the traffic jam was crazy... it takes me
more than 1 hour than usual to get to my destination.


Anyone suggest a better time or way to go to Surrey ?

(i know translink is a good idea, but you have to wait 3 trains until u can hoop on)

I car-pool on HOV lane of PortMan bridge to get into surrey at 730AM and its not slowing me down at all

but the way back is HELL for the driver, NO HOV on Portman bridge sucks
so I just skytrain back from surrey to van haha (almost empty train when I hop on)

we're not hiring externally ATM, just internally and we just hired a bit within last 2-3 months for IT dept. The next external hire should be end of 09 :|

The pay is pretty decent imo.
Enough for a person to pay off 335i monthly, buy the mods i have, and still have money for saving/food

ehhhwik:
Downtown office is the shittzzzz..I love it...Im just temporarily at crappy surrey office, should be back in DT in 2 months...cant wait! DT and spring/summer time is the best...
