I Love My Commute!
I was just talking to one of my brothers earlier this morning while he was on his way, from his home, 80 kms (50 miles) to work. He does this Monday to Friday each week and sometimes even on holidays.
My brother in the east commutes about 30 kms each way. My kids and my other siblings? Anywhere from 20 to 100 kms each way. I did the same for over 50 years working as a chef. The worst was when I lived in town and had to travel sometimes 300 or 400 miles to get to the work site way out in the bush or in a town in the middle of Nowhere, Alberta.
Since I've 'retired' and got settled in with WA, my 'commute; is now 30 feet. Yep, 30 feet from my bed to the kitchen to the computer. Can anyone feel for poor me? All that traveling? I just love it! There is nothing like sitting with a cup of coffee at your computer talking with your brother or whomever while they buck traffic, stupid drivers and those insistent truckers who think that you will back down when they try to wedge you off the road.
The best part to the commute is the fact that you don't need road reports, police incident reports or weather reports. You just go. Yep, 30 feet - a far cry from the distances before.
If you feel the same way. Let me know. I believe in equal commuting for all (in WA). No stress; no honking horns AND no yelling bosses.
