No public transportation here, I'm as close as I could get -- besides, I'm
not moving if I change jobs -- and a bicycle or the brisk 5-mile walk is
simply not practical for a suit-wearing engineer in a region with 100F+
temperature swings and rain.  My coworkers who live within 5 miles work
different hours, so carpooling is not an option.

Nice idea, I would respectfully submit that but most of us who drive to
work do so for lack of a practical alternative.  I usually hear otherwise
from single apartment dwellers who work in companies that allow casual
clothing.

I'd love to save the wear and tear usually expended on daily driving for
race day.  8-)
