Whistler Air

Tags: mozilla.org — 10:38 pm Comments (2)

Whistler Air is the float plane we took from Squamish to Vancouver last Friday on the way home from Whistler.  The way home included: a 10 mini van taxi ride to Green Lake, hour “limo” bus ride to Squamish, 20 minute float plane ride to Downtown Vancouver, 30 minute cab ride to the Airport, 2 1/2 hour plane trip to SFO, 5 minute Air Tram to BART in the airpot, 1 1/4 hour BART ride home, 8 minute car ride home.  I was tempted to put on some roller blades or hop on my bike and then go for a swim afterwards.

And while the Firefox Summit also included a rockslide, bear sightings, a day with no electricity, my MacBook hard drive dying on day 2, it also included over 400 Mozilla contributors from around the World — US, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Germany, France, South Africa, Brazil, India, and more.  Great event, great people, great time, lots of Rock Band.  It was a celebration for the launch of Firefox 3 and then discussion towards the future and some of the things that were demoed were very cool.

Whistler Canada is a beautiful place.  Would love to come back and try snowboarding.  The Bay Area Ski bus is doing a trip out there January 10 – 16, 2009.

  2. There was traffic. It would’ve been the same or worse.
