Our office moved to a new location this last weekend. My daily trip to the post office has gone from 7.4 miles (one way) to 8.5 - still testing route alternatives, but it looks like the MPG for those trips will be about the same as always (60-80). My distance from home is now laughable, at roughly 5-6 miles. Sadly, the trip TO work is pretty much all uphill. I can freeway or surface street and have tested both. Each route gets me only about 40-50 MPG, and the surface street route has a very slow speed limit and lots of curves, so I'm sticking with the freeway for how. The good news is that the trip home gets me 75-90 MPG. I'm also close enough to home that today I left the office shortly after noon, drove home, made a sandwich, ate it slowly, chatted with my husband, and was still back at my desk with 10 minutes to spare. I think I could get used to this!
