When All You Do Is Drive

Farewell Bend

Sometimes I work on the weekend.

And when I do, my schedule might look something like this:


7 am Leave Salem

Drive 23 miles

Pick up student

Drive 35 miles

Pick up student

Drive 29 miles

Participate in 4 hour meeting

Top off gas tank

Drive 231 miles

Stop in Pendleton for gas and dinner

Drive 185 miles

Drop off student

Drive 14 miles

10:46 pm

Check in at hotel

Realize that it is really 11:46 pm

I've crossed over into Mountain Standard Time

Further realization that Daylight Savings begins tonight

...it is now 12:46 am and I don't have any

proof of where the last 2 hours went




Fill the gas tank

Drive 172 miles

Stop in Pendleton to stretch

Drive 192 miles

Pray that the car will make it to Troutdale on gas fumes

Drive 66 miles

Return vehicle to the Motor Pool lot

Arrive home after 36 hours and 949 miles

I like what I do

And that's a good thing.
