Driving Personal Rants

I drive too much

Just got back from the LA Auto Show and before I sort and post the photos, audio and video, I felt compelled to share something with you.

In the last 24 hours I have driven approximately 195 miles. Under normal conditions (like driving to Las Vegas) that distance would normally take a little less than 3 hours to travel. But you know we wouldn’t be having this little chat now if that were the case.

Because it’s not. For the time period starting 5:30p November 18th, 2008 until 5:30p November 19th, 2008, I have spent **eight** hours in my car. The calculates out to an average speed of 24.3 MPH.

Imagine, if you will, driving through a school zone that is almost 200 miles long.

If the economy is so bad, then where are all of these effing cars coming from?

What out for LA Auto Show stuff to follow shortly.
