The drive up and back today wasn't too bad.
The drive up was about 40 miles in the early morning and there were reports of road works, but I got a tip to take the Krufker Express to Tollway and south to Jefferson and west to Ella and home free.
Word came later that the road works announced earlier wouldn't start until night so it was clear sailing down the Beltway to home.
So, up and back both worked for different reasons.
I drove about 100 miles today just to do some teaching and inspiring and stuff like that, and I often drive farther and longer to do the same thing.
But think back 50 or 100 years and that would have been a several day trip. Who traveled 100 miles, round trip, in a day? Nobody! That was insane.
Not to say that what I did today was not insane! That's something to ponder
