I saw this on the news this morning & thought it was interesting. You probably know a lot of these mega commuters ?

LOL. . . that's me!!! If I drive it takes me an hour and 45 min in to work (50 miles). . . but that's getting longer now because of some major construction going on along I95 South . . . and it takes me an average of 2 hrs to get home. And that's if there are no other problems, if there's even one little fender bender or a cop pulls someone over then it can go as long as 3 hrs one way.

Now I could take the train, but that's a 2 hr commute (if the train doesn't break down). . . and that means I go to a commuter lot, park, take a bus to the train station, take the train part way, switch from the train to the Metro into the building here. (Miserable at best).

We're now looking at maybe doing the Commuter Bus (like the lady in the video). . . drive to the lot and catch the bus and then walk about a mile into the building. . . still have to get through traffic, but then someone else is driving and they have WIFI :-)

Then the whole dynamic changes if we end up staying in town / North of town. I just have 2 words. . .commuting sucks. :-)

I'm going to be spending a few days in England at the beginning of our trip this summer, and I had hoped to get out to Highclere Castle. . .Downtown Abby. . . but I'm going to be there at the wrong time. They'll be closed for visitors, so maybe they're filming. Oh well. . .I'll have to save that for another trip!

Oh that's a shame. We'll find you some other castles to visit while you're there.
