Since I take the Bay Bridge to get to work, Interstate 80 is part of my daily commute. I-80 starts on the Bay Bridge and goes almost all the way to New York City, and it is a secret ambition of mine to someday drive the whole thing, end-to-end, in a single trip.
Not to escape my life, particularly; it's a pretty good life, all things considered. But to do something really out there, chase a crazy dream for once. I'm not so good at that sort of thing. I wish I were.
