I have a terrible 60-mile round trip commute every day. I'm at a seminar today that would be an 80-mile round trip. Parking at the seminar would have been $25 for the day, but I have a friend that works in this city.

So I left my house about 30 minutes earlier than normal today, and got a ride with my friend. His office was about 3 blocks from the hotel where my seminar was, and his work hours are a little longer than my seminar. I got there early after a nice short walk. I will have about an extra hour after the seminar before he's done with work. Then 30 minutes in his car, then about an hour back to my house.

Not having to park was nice, and the walk was nice. I walked to lunch, too. If I could do this every day, I'd think about it, even though it took more travel time.

I think it's a matter of being flexible and just appreciating the little difference you make on days you can do it, even if it's not a complete solution. Trading something in exchange for the lift is nice, too.
