time and distance
I feel much better this eve mainly due to fact I slept almost all day.
I realized something today. Even though I'm accustomed to driving long distances, it still beats the crap out of me. I don't think I'll ever get used to it. Granted, I have put more miles on cars in a few years than most people would in their whole lives, but the road still has a way of beating me up. It doesn't matter I'm going somewhere new or somewhere that I've been to a thousand times before. The road just gets you after you've been on it long enough.
Fortunately, I'm skilled as a interstate traveler enough to know when to go and when to stop. 🙂
I also realized that Florida is a big frickin' state. I mean, yeah, that's obvious, but it doesn't really sink in until you travel 1.5 hours and notice you haven't covered much ground.
If you were to travel the distance between two points of Florida that are on opposite ends of the state, such as Mc David to Key West, it would take you over thirteen hours worth of driving to traverse that (just shy of 860 miles).
In Connecticut, it's Thompson to Greenwich, and that's only about 2.5 hours of driving (just shy of 140 miles).
To think, I used to believe Niantic was a long way from Dayville.
And it's also funny knowing Rhode Islanders pack an overnight back to go from Warwick to Scituate. I say this with love because y'know it's true. 🙂
