Do I have it in me?

by Gilbert Keith

I’m thinking of getting into some kind of routine where I carpool with a roommate to work, take a bus from work into the city, hang around in the city, and head back home in the night.

Everything in this plan is mostly fine except the last part.

The last bus to leave Madison that gets me within a 20 minute walking distance of home is at 630 pm. That is far too early.

I have the option of busing it to the South Transfer point as late as 1130 pm. Once I alight the bus, I will have to walk a cool 5.3 miles to reach home.

Seems doable – especially because of the fact that this is bound to make me fall asleep when I get home. And get me to be one hell of a calorie burning machine!
