Is the torch coming to your town this winter? Are you going to go see it?

I live in Squamish right now, half way between Whistler and Vancouver..... and the torch is coming through (a block from my place) on Feb 6th.... I plan on going to check it out.....I figure why not, I have had to put up with the Olympics construction for a year, I may as well see some of the exciting stuff!

My Dad gets to be one of the torch bearers! I forget what city he's going to be running through, but he gets his moment - can't wait!

MizzRobin ... Squamish! Awesome.

Saw it & held it last night and will see it again this morning!!! on Feb 05, 2010 @ 09:56 am

So Olympic fever has definitely hit BC....Squamish...Whistler...Vancouver etc! I was driving home today and saw the torch in the lane next to me on the HWY! I thought it arrived tomorrow but it arrived in Squamish tonight and comes up to my front door tomorrow! I can't explain to you the excitement this has generated here...6 hours after the festivities I was still WIRED and wide awake. Check out a couple of the pics I took and the video of the party at the following link:

I looked at your pics and watch your video Robin! So thrilling! How fortunate you are to be able to experience the Olympics up close. Keep up the reporting!

Awesome! I just saw your post, Robin. What a neat experience. How
were the opening ceremonies? I watched them on TV. The aerial dancer
was very impressive, was the orator who recited that poem. I'm not
Canadian, but after hearing his address I sure felt like a Canadian.
So much pride! :-)

it has been SURREAL! on Feb 15, 2010 @ 10:37 am

My friend's boyfriend was in the opening ceremonies as a fiddler so it was even more personal watching it than I thought it would be...and then to see Wayne Gretzsky light the outdoor cauldron... it has been unbelieveble every step of the way. I was downtown til about 3am on the night of opening ceremonies only to return at 8 this next morning for more festivities before I went to see an Olympic Hockey Game! Every day has been more energizing than the last and then to see Canada win it's first gold medal on home soil live! I am still on cloud nine!!!! I will update on more events that I attend as the weeks go on! :o)
