yeah, like you are interested

Found a pretty neat sight, done by folks with nothing better to do, I guess.

It gives you an idea on what a hiway looks like. They stop and take pictures of the hiway at important points.. and sometimes unimportant ones.

Here is what I do everyday for the last 12 miles of my commute. It give me a new perspective on the road (I KNEW but never visualized how steep it is because I am always driving and paying attention to the immediate task at hand)

Hop skip and a Jump from "Down the Hill" I get off at the Crestline/138 interchange. It turns into a 2 lane hiway from there. Lucky me!

And, stalkers...this is the easy part.. Crestline ain't an easy place to navigate

Here is the main page. I am scoping out my Oregon Rally routes as we speak...the 299 doesn't look all that bad in comparison to this...

Commuting is something I've almost flushed out of my system. Here's a pic of mine, which I have to do every 3-4 weeks when it's time to resupply. Oh, woe! But at least the traffic isn't a problem.

From my house to my office is about 3 miles on city streets. Takes me 12 minutes. Then I park my own vehicle, and spend the rest of the day driving a company truck from customer to customer.

When I get stuck in traffic after 4:30 PM, I get paid overtime for it!

My commute is 25 KM to main mine site.From there we get changed into work clothes and get on bus and go another 20 KMs or so to the actual operating underground coal mine.With 10.5 hrs shifts underground plus the travel time it makes for a long day.Its good we work a 4 on 4 off shift rotation.

I have a long commute or a short commute option.

The long commute is around the kitchen, through the living room and into the office.

The short commute is straight down the hallway from the bedroom.

Ah Robert, your photo makes me nostalgic. I lived in Tryon, Macpherson County for 5 years in the 70's. I remember those roads and how the sky and the land seemed to go on FOREVER. You could stand in one spot, turn 360 and see nothing but sky and grass Oh, and an occasional cow

Thanks for the great picture, Robert.

Tryon is about 50 miles east of me. I may have mentioned this before, but by coincidence I lived in Tucson for several years. Small world.

Have to come clean about traffic on my "commute" though. Occasionally it can be pretty...uh..."heavy." See pic for example...

I ate there a few months ago!

I usually stop there for gas, stretch and sometimes eats.
