    Road Traffic

    Advertisements



    Greetings. Is it true that it takes 3-4 hours of driving through traffic to get groceries, or was that a gross exaggeration? Thanks,
    -Wes

    During high season, certain times of day have ridiculous amounts of traffic because the road is one lane. During that time, it might not be an exaggeration.

    If you go early, you can avoid most of this traffic and there are smaller grocery stores that are much closer.

    It can take hours to make a trip to and from Philipsburg when there is heavy traffic. If you are lucky and there is no traffic it can take 15 minutes only.

    The road is one lane, and everyone drives SLOW and just stops in the middle of the road to chat. The best thing about going home on break is being able to drive over 60mph! There are a lot of smaller grocery stores a lot closer and easier to get to. There is one grocery store about 2 minutes from campus but its expensive. Look for the grocery stores that look like dungeons, they are usually cheap.

    Get this: I spent from 3:30 till 8:30 yesterday grabbing groceries. YES, there was some heavy shopping to fill my fridge but traffic was crazy. It rained a bunch yesterday (real technical, right?) and the roads were flooded. Don't I wish I had a Jeep... Or just a car..

    So, yeah it can take that many hours.

    I hate driving to Pburg unless it's early morning or late at night. There are so many places to be bottled up in traffic it's crazy.
