    Unbelievable traffic, congested....... NOT! Sorry I don't know how to add music yet, still learnng the Contour. I also cant figure out why it starts in the middle- the beginning of the pics is actually at 1:30. So it's a few minutes of pics, every 60 seconds. Didn't do it for the whole ride, there's about 10 minutes of blacktop at each end.

    Sure sucks to live in this area. :D

    Nice! Just how indirect a route is this "commute"? :D

    Not too..... I can head west out of town, get on the highway, and be home at 70mph on the slab in 20-30 minutes, depending. I can head south and up the canyon, the way I did in the video, and be home in 45-60 minutes. Took about an hour yesterday, I'm still rusty from winter so I just putted along.
    Much nicer ride, though, plus it was blowing 35+mph on the slab route.
