North to Canada

I’m taking off in about an hour to head north to Victoria, BC. It’s actually a business trip of sorts, I’m going to be attending the ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop. I know, I know … you’re horribly excited to hear about this 🙂

Getting there is fun, taking the car ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island (crossing Puget Sound), drive about 80 miles to Port Angeles, WA, and then take a car ferry across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria. Last time we went to Victoria, we were able to take a fast passenger ferry (55 minute crossing), but that is seasonal. The car ferry takes about 90 minutes to make the crossing.

The sad part – I’ll be on the ferry during the presidential debate! I will be taping it for watching when I get back.
