Round and Round
Asked Jun 19, 2006, 02:05 AM
How much do you guys travel? I feel like I travel a lot, and I do probably more than the average teenager, but I know there are like tons of people out there that travel constantly for business purposes. I'm just tired of traveling. I use to like airplanes as a kid, or at least not like them, indifferent you could say, but after my last one to newark, i don't want to ride another one for a long time. Not only do I fly a lot, or at least more than the average, I am the king of long car rides. Here's my list:
San Francisco to Seattle: Approx. hrs. 15
Aberdeen, SD to Phoenix,AZ: Approx.hrs. Btwn. 48 and 72 hours
Chicago, IL to Aberdeen, SD: Approx.hrs 12
San Francisco to L.A.(Twice): Approx.hrs. 6-7
San Francisco to Las Vegas(Three): Approx.hrs. 9
Here's the Kicker
San Francisco to Aberdeen, SD(6 times): Approx.hrs. 72 hours
*all approx. hrs. of travel are one-way
I have more, but for the sake of time and arguement I think I've done enough. Everything but the Chicago trip did I not have to make a return trip. The reason I am complaining, is that I'm tired, plain and simple. I don't have a problem traveling, but the more I do the more I miss the West Coast. This Christmas I was in South Dakota, this Spring Break I was in Newark, and this Summer I will probably spend a week in South Dakota. My trip to newark led me to find that I love the West Coast, I love the wide open spaces, and I know I didn't get a good look of the East Coast, I was in Newark, NJ which is one of the worst ghettos' in the country. I should also be the king of ghetto's, because I've been to the country's worst. L.A.'s, Oakland's, Newark's, Chicago's,St.Louis's, I haven't got to enjoy D.C.'s or Detriot's yet but it's on my to-do list. I did a lot of travling for videogaming, but I retired from that and I love just to sit around and enjoy the calm attitude that I get when living in California. South Dakota will be nice, relatives and all, the drive is horrible and I'm not gonna like driving it but o well. All in all, I'm just pooped out from traveling, and because in less than a week I will probably be on my way to S.D. it's a little depressing. I already have plans for travel for October and March, and I just needs a break. I'm rambling and basically just complaining, so I'm gonna end this, dont' read to much into my complaining though it's 2:00 a.m., yesterday I sent a good friend of mine back to Utah after he visted my friends and I for a week, he moved to Utah a few years back, it was father's day and that never goes well for me. Anyways, I see that I'm rambling so, good night and peace.

That IS a lot of traveling, and is especially tiring since you're driving. I don't travel nearly as much anymore now that I'm married (only about twice a year to the west coast of Canada and Seattle, and I always fly). But before I was married I used to be on the "speakers circuit", as I spoke to all kinds of groups and at conferences about my childhood in foster care / with mentally ill parents. The distances weren't necessarily that far, some speaks were right in the city and some were only about 30 minutes out of the city, but I would drive all over the province, and a bit in our 2 neighboring provinces, speaking mainly at highschools. I was also flown way up north twice a year, and did speaks in several far northern communities over a span of a week. And I did about 4 large conferences a year, in places like Calgary, Winnipeg, etc. Again, in those cases I would fly rather than drive. I averaged about 70 speaks a year.
I found that I got really tired of hotels, no matter how luxurious they were, and I got really tired of eating out, too. Flying used to be fun but it got tedious also. So anyways I totally know what you mean. Travel is great if you just do it once in a while for a vacation but if it's for work or very, very often it gets to be a real drag.
