I have been in the last few weeks “commuting” from Coast to Coast. I would grab the “5:15” and head for California and then get the early morning “8:20” back to New York. So I been leaping from Pacific to Atlantic and vis-versa for some distance. Now, I might just as well stayed one place. There is an awful lot of this running around that is overestimated. You don’t see much more where you are going than where you come from.
