I am trying to figure this one out. ...

Postby J. S. Bach » Thu Sep 28, 2017 9:07 pm

...Package trucking on an ebay item that I just bought:
Arrived at USPS Regional Origin Facility
2017-09-28, 13:04:00, PITTSBURGH PA NETWORK DISTRIBUTION CENTER

Accepted at USPS Origin Facility
2017-09-28, 11:49:00, MISHAWAKA, IN 46545

I am Shure that those two cities/PO facilities are more than an hour and fifteen minutes apart and they are in the same time zone. I mean Ohio is between them!

Magic....
You rest comfortably in seats of inscrutable power, hiding behind your false idol, far from judgment, lives shrouded in secrecy, even from each other. But not from God.

Try Key West to Pensacola, FL. 832 miles and you still are not out of FL!

Probably a time zone thing. Indiana has some places that do not have daylight savings time plus the edge of the time zone zigzags through it. Years ago Indianapolis was two hours behind Cleveland for parts of the year.
You begin flying with a full bag of luck and an empty bag for experience. The object is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

Mishawaka is in the eastern time zone and is just east of South Bend so there is about two hours of IN and four hours of OH between the two places.

I would expect Montana to interesting - Ohio drags you under with boredom that is only survivable due to the spoon that I stuck in my ear to ward off the pain...

Actually have done a good portion of that drive -- it's interesting, and it's not the distance but the mind numbing boredom of Ohio

It's like Ohio but farther apart and farther to go, and no corn fields. Since there isn't as much open range any more and the I is paved all the way since '91 it can get really boring. Unless it's winter and you are west of Billings, then it can be downright exciting at times. If you decide to skip I-94 and come up on I-90, you do miss the really mind numbing eastern half, however, that drive through the Crow Reservation seems to take an eternity. And, the Crow don't believe in rest stops so you better drain the bladder dry and top off the fuel tank in Billings or Sheridan.
