If you like, skip to the end of this post to answer the Olympic travel question.

Last week’s post: 1937 Buzzer trivia

Last week’s fun post asked you to solve six picture puzzles from the Buzzer in 1937!

The answers were all Vancouver street names, and here they are:

1. Granville
2. Grandview
3. Pender
4. Sasamat
5. Hastings
6. Columbia

Number 2 and 3 seemed to give people the most trouble, especially since the guy is saying “Swell!” in number 2. (He means what a swell view, which equals Grandview. Hey, it was the 1930s.)

But congrats to CJ Stebbing and zack for getting the right answers anyway!

And CJ and zack, since you guys did so well, I can mail you a set of transit buttons as a prize if you like. Just e-mail me your address and I can send them out to you.

By the way, there are more of these puzzles in the 1937 Buzzers, so I’ll put a few more up in a later fun post!

This week: have you thought about your Olympic travel plans yet?

So, Phase 2 of the Olympic transportation plan was released last week, and in light of the extraordinary travel situation that we’re going to be in, has anyone started thinking about how you’ll get around the region during the Olympics?

Feel free to use the comments if you have strategies or any other insight to share!
