To those of you who are working stiffs, how is your commute to work? I am more fortunate than most, I suppose. I leave a little country town (pop. about 1500), and after 1/2 a mile, I am cruising down a peaceful country road. I pass a herd of goats almost every day, unless it is inclement weather and the farmer doesn't let them out. Most of the drive is passed cornfields. I see deer and fox ocassionally, and cockbirds rarely. I drive over a creek bridge, and there are ducks there every day. After about 10 miles, I come into a small town (pop. about 8,000) and stop at my favorite coffee shop. Then I have another 4 miles, through 5 traffic signals, until I reach work. It's about 25 minutes, including the stop for coffee. Going home, I usually take another way just to break it up. Same drive almost, except a few more traffic signals, and more of a two lane highway through some suburbs. Then the last 6 miles is a straight country highway passed farms. Takes about 20 minutes.
