Riding to Work

I love longboarding in the fall as long as I can avoid the various debris on the path. I am fortunate to have a very short commute to work (one and a half miles). It means I can get home for lunch and be back in time for the afternoon. Unfortunately, time is precious, and on many days I need to get to the hospital to round, then quickly on to work. Other days I need to respond to emergencies a mile away at the hospital, and I need the speed and reliability of my scooter.

But the last two Mondays I have boarded to work on beautiful, crisp fall mornings. It doesn't get any better than this. And while Mondays tend to be crazy busy and I'll probably be home late, I have a nice ride home to look forward to.
