I drove from Whistler to Seattle today in 4-hours which included a stop in Vancouver for lunch. I usually plan 2.5 hours for a trip between Vancouver & Seattle but traffic in either city can delay this a bit. Also regular travelers get the Nexus pass for the border which eliminates almost all the wait at customs but odd travelers can get stuck 90mins

One of the biggest issues with the Grizzlies not getting a fair shake at a rivalry with Seattle or Portland was that the NBA put them in the MidWest division with Utah, Denver, Minnesota and the Texas teams. Hard to get a rivalry with the local teams with the 3-4 games per year rather than 6-8 in division.
