I’m Driving Solo To Smart Commute Breakfast–Zoom, Zoom

The hump day of Smart Commute Week: How is it going? Anyone take the bus yet? 

_

Due to circumstance, I’m driving to Smart Commute Week breakfast this morning. The reality made me think of a previous week where I committed to driving everywhere I needed to gono matter the distance.

I actually enjoy the act of driving, but quickly get fed up with it when I need to drive places so close that I don’t even get to listen to a complete song. Anyway, we have some new readers to MyWHaT since January, so I thought I’d highlight the results today: Car-dependency Is Humorous When It’s Simply A State Of Mind

There were minor cost findings, but the real value of the experiment was the intangibles that I found, some of which that I list here and are explained in the original post.

  • Road-rage Happens
  • Navigators Make Driving Better
  • Pet-peeve #1: Getting in and out of cars
  • Pet-peeve #2: Stop signs and red lights
  • Driving Induces More Driving
  • Time: I didn’t seem to gain any by driving
  • Anxiety/Stress Increased
  • Reflection: I’m fortunate, I’m mostly car free
Sorry for the added congestion, toxic fumes and skid marks I’ll leave in your neighborhood today.
