Who's asking: The Super Shuttle driver at LAX, last night
Yesterday, it took about 13 hours. Left my apartment at 12:00 noon EDT, caught the bus from Portland to Boston's Logan Airport, flew to LAX, climbed into a Super Shuttle van, reached my destination (and two happy dogs!) juat before 10:00 p.m. PDT. Read three books (about which more tomorrow), sort-of watched three movies ("Invincible" on the bus, "The Holiday" and "The Pursuit of Happyness" on the plane).
Land distance between my home and Gary's, where I'm staying: 3,151 miles. My average travel speed yesterday: just over 242 MPH. Google Maps says it would take 27 hours to drive it, without stops. Modern travel is amazing...
Woke up before 4:00 local time this morning. The older I get, the harder I find recalibrating to time zone changes. Maybe I'll catch a nap late this afternoon, but I doubt it.
