Swapping war stories



An new transportation option

for Portland: skiing

Portlanders are (metaphorically speaking) showing off their battle scars today.  "I walked two hours to the bus stop, waited an hour and then caught a ride on the back of a ATV" type commute stories.  It's cathartic.

My commute wasn't exactly normal, but the MAX Yellow Line did have a shuttle bus running very frequently and I was able to catch a MAX from the Rose Quarter into downtown.  Yesterday, well it was nice out so I walked the 6 miles home.  It seemed like a good idea when I left work...

Over at they are posting people's commute stories.  One commuter got an early Christmas present.  One got a lift (lot's of community-style hitchhiking going on, it seems - only in Portland). And one got a, let's call it inappropriate, song stuck in his head. 

Remember, City Maintenance Crews and TriMet operators are working long hours in stressful conditions to get you home safely. 

Stay safe out there!
