Re: Labor Day Travel Tips

I live on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Northwest Washington State, where my family has lived for generations. Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit this area every year, many of them from across the water in the Seattle metro area. One of the things that puzzles me about city folks who visit our peninsula is that they all seem to do so on the same days. So they wait in line for 2 hours at the ferry dock on Friday afternoon, then drive for several hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic to reach a campground or motel where they "recreate" wall-to-wall for a couple of days amongst other city dwellers. They then pack up and again drive for hours in stop and go gridlock only to wait in line for 3 hours to ride the ferry back to the city. This makes absolutely no sense to me. Why not recreate on a weekend other than Memorial Day, the 4th of July or Labor Day, or better yet, simply invite friends and family over for a backyard barbecue?

It won't happen because that idea is too simple. Do you remember the term sheeple?

I was trying to be polite (for once).
