I think I legit have close to the best commute
-NYC gramercy to lower edge of midtown
Gets a bit nippy Jan-Feb, but otherwise its brilliant.
I live just outside of the city and commute on nice straight country roads to another town 12kms away for work.
It's all farm land and hills, the only downside is the brutal snowdrifts that often accumulate on the road due to high winds in the winter months.
The cool option I have is I can cover the same distance on an extremely windy road that is on the shore of a river with little to no traffic (downside is you **** it up and you're in the river - no guardrails). Lots of fun if I happen to take the Datsun to work.
Funny story. I was cruising along at topspeed in my 4000Quattro (about 110) when I got passed by a Grand Cherokee with dealer plates. Got into our morning meeting with the old man sitting there and he says "Damn son, you were really hauling ass when I passed ya this morning".
Classicmotoringllc.com - my new brokerage and consulting business based out of a lavishly converted first floor bedroom in Allentown, PA. I am always looking for quality enthusiast cars to consign, research projects or consultation opportunities. Keep an eye on my page as you can see my blabberings about cars and other such junk in the blog section!
2.8 miles; 6 minutes on terrible city roads (pot hole here, pot hole there, random construction, broken down jalopy, onto New Deal Act brick streets, fox hole here, fox hole there) with the worlds most ridiculous drivers (heads up their a$$es, driving way too fast or preposterously slow, no blinkers, speed up thru yellow lights, sun in the eyes, college students darting across the most busy street in town, etc.)
I have only totaled one Audi A4...knock on wood! (Stopped at a red light for 20 seconds, look in the rear view and see Law School Student coming about 45 mph in a 4x4 Toyota Tacoma, never hits breaks...goodbye 9 month old Audi) Thumbs up their a$$es!!!!
The carpet pissers did this?!
I didn't mind this commute most days. Pass by Sherwood Country Club, see all the millions of dollars in homes I'll never afford, see some film crews virtually every day. I think We Bought a Zoo was filmed right there. Always saw cool cars, too.
Then, as I got closer to my apartment I'd hit some alright twisties and usually see BMW test cars on their way home from the Oxnard facility. I'd see a 7 series hydrogen a lot and other test vehicles in camo quite often. My apartment was out in the boonies and just a few miles from the ocean. I loved it!
Now I commute about 9 miles on the side road of the tollway. Boring.
On a good day I leave work at 4:02PM, get to car at 4:06 and am home by 4:10. On a bad day I get to my car at 4:08 and don't get home until like 4:25. I only live like 4KM from work and about 500 cars try to get onto the same road all at once.
Getting to work isn't too bad, I leave around 5:40AM and am in the building by around 5:52AM.
I never think to take pics when I am out there. But I have some from a winter time commute. It is wide open for miles and miles in some areas...wide open throttle fun
