Night Commutes Coming To An End

Kinda sucks. I always enjoyed riding the KLR to work fairly regularly at least 5-6 months out of the year when the weather is decent. Had a Full Moon tonight which makes for a great ride home at 11:00PM.

But, I'm switching to days. My wife used to work here in town, 6 blocks from our house, but last February she started working in a day slot where I do.

Since it's a 60-mile round trip for both of us, the gas is killing us and it's just kind of a waste, so I decided it would be best if I switched to days. It will save us a lot of money plus no more worries about what we'd do if one of our vehicles broke down. She has weekends off and I'll have Sundays/Mondays off, so we can ride together 4 days a week.

So, the only time I'll be able to ride to work is on Saturdays or holidays when she's off and I have to work or when she takes a day off.

On the bright side, we actually have a really nice weight/exercise room at work. She gets off at 4:30 and I'll get off at 3:30, so I figure I'll go up and work out for that hour while I wait for her which will do me some good.

Still, I'm gonna miss those regular rides home at night on the aptly-named Midnight Possum KLR. I've always really enjoyed riding in the dark. I'll still be able to, just not as much.

Looking at the end too but it will be from the brine they dump on the roads in Ohio hope the weather holds out.
