Camping in February: An Olympics idea

October 19th, 2009 · 13 Comments

Okay, this isn’t strictly urban issues but I just couldn’t help noticing this story about plans to open up campgrounds near (i.e. within a couple of hours) of Vancouver/Whistler so that Olympics tourists could stay there if they wanted.

I have to say, the Games are starting to feel more and more like some out-of-control wedding all the time. Ack! We invited 200, but 300 are coming, so we’re going to have to pitch tents in the backyard. Oh, and I forgot to mention that we need $477,000 to hire someone with experience in specialized lighting. (See Vancouver council report on live site planning). And it’s now all going to cost twice as much as we thought. More ack!

I guess it could be fun, in that “okay, we’ve got 50 people in a house meant for six, so let’s order in Chinese food and all sing camp songs” way. If you like that sort of thing.
