Aftermath of comic-con: the 5 fwy was a ugly mess and It took me like 2 1/2 hours just to get to Irvine, when normally I can get there within an hour (I left around 4 PM). :( I was wondering if anyone else was stuck too.

Yeah, it took me about 3-4 hours to get home where normally it only takes 2 hours... Kinda a good thing I slept through most of the trip. ^^;

I left around 7:15pm. Took 4 hours to get home. Wasn't until I passed San Deigo county and Orange county did the traffic lighten.

WE were in traffic there and back. Because we were stuck in LA for 3 hours we missed friday completely. On the way back we ran into the same problem. ARg took 5 hours to get to LA and 3 hours to get out of it. That is crazy. I seriously won't like to live there. They have cool malls and outlets plus great food, but the traffic just dampens everything good.

It was about 7p, and we just got onto the 5 North back to Los Angeles County. I was driving for about 5 minutes when I came up over a hill and saw miles and miles of stop-and-go traffic. I said "Forget this" and drove back to SD and hung out with friends till 11p. By that time, no more traffic ^^

Heh, when we left Sat at around 11:30 traffic wasn't bad at all...until we dropped off my boyfriend and then hit construction on the way back to my house. Dang, we thought we were in the home stretch!

the 15 to the 91 is your friend ( or the 15 to the 210 )
you can take the 163 to the 15 and cut tons of time. We left at 6 and it took me 2 and a half to get to pasadena

however i got mine when it took us 4 hours to get to temecula on wed thanks to a chemical spill

:( it really sucked.... i would have taken the 15 but one of our carpoolee's lived near the 5. it was so bad that we just got off on some random street and drove parallel to the 5 to avoid the traffic.

we ran into some traffic on the way down... it took like an hour... not bad acutally on the way back we made it home in like 35-40 minutes so no real problems

Well I have to take the 5 to the 405 since I live off the 405/10. It took me an hour to get from San Diego to La Jolla and then 3.5 hours from La Jolla to LA. >=(
