Some crunchy delicious numbers:
Total so far: 52 2/3 hours. Somewhere just beyond halfway done, with only two near-death experiences so far. Yay.
North Beach is a 32 mile trip, Nova Southeastern University is 37, and Fort Lauderdale International Airport is at 42 (by road, I think it's farther by train).
Travel time so far: 37 hours.... this includes the exceedingly boring wait for Tri-Rail to arrive. (There's NOTHING to do at those stations! Augh...)
Total travel distance so far: About 962 miles.
Ack.. according to Mapquest, it's only 870 miles from here to my girlfriend's hometown of Danville, Virginia. Hmm. If only Tri-Rail went a few hundred miles farther north.......
Total amount spent on train fare for Metrorail and Tri-Rail: $31.90.
Cost for a pair of pooper scoopers (beach cleanup): $30.
Number of times Metrorail has made awesome nighttime fireworks when the little power rail contact malfunctions: 3. (It even made NOISES tonight! Cool!!!)
For some odd reason, the song "Disposable Teens" by Marilyn Manson is stuck on replay in my head whenever I go to mess with this page.. Hmmm.. I wonder what the connection is.......
