Today I worked until 3:30. Then we loaded up the car and we undertook the 5.5 hour journey to my families house. We got in about 10:30. Tomorrow we will have dinner at 2PM and then head back home because we have appointments and work on Wednesday.
I can sympathize with you FenderBender. We traveled last Saturday 3 hours down to my grandmother's house and 3 hours back. Last night it was 1.5 hours to my sister's house and 1.5 hours back. Today we are at home! Whew!! Traveling done!
The worst thing about traveling this time of year, of course, is the bumper-to-bumper traffic. I like to keep a good distance between myself and the cars in front, but the people behind us don't seem to be as careful. It's the pushy drivers that bother me the most, even when I'm staying in the right-hand lane. I like to go a couple of miles over the speed limit, but there are always the creeping cars. Then there are the speed demons who ride your bumper. If everyone would just flow at the speed limit, the journey would be so much more bearable.
