Planes, Trains, Automobiles (Well, not so much automobiles) – Getting to BWI from Rockville

After two straight weekends of 16 hour work days, a ridiculous fever, and several hockey games, I am taking this weekend off to go to a wedding.  You can expect some interesting follow up to that come next week.  Getting to the airport yesterday was a chore in which I had not fully anticipated just how big of a pain in the ass it would be.  I lost a ton of time and made me question how much “opportunity cost” did i lose yesterday.  Below is yesterdays story (or whine-fest).

I left my house at 11am, had to stop at work, which was a bit out of the way in terms of the metro route (sort of like McDonalds is out of the way to your house from wherever; its out of the way, but not extremely so).  Because of the red line delays, it took about 2 hours to get there.  1PM now, I had stopped in the office for a few minutes, and gotten back to the metro where apparently I had just missed the yellow line, so i hopped on the blue.  It was a slow ride back to the red line, then a slower ride to Union Station, getting there at 1:50PM.  Then I was able to board the MARC and take it to the BWI station, where I then needed to take a shuttle to the airport.  Then I sat around in the airport for 2 hours waiting for my flight.

So here is the breakdown: 6.5 Hours and $12 in transportation costs vs. 2 hours and $40 in transportation costs.

Maybe i was a bit too frugal yesterday and should have taken a shuttle from my house.  I lost a lot of productive hours trying to do the “DC Thing”.  We will see if this is a lesson learned for next time.

Planes, Trains, Automobiles (Well, not so much automobiles) – Getting to BWI from Rockville

After two straight weekends of 16 hour work days, a ridiculous fever, and several hockey games, I am taking this weekend off to go to a wedding.  You can expect some interesting follow up to that come next week.  Getting to the airport yesterday was a chore in which I had not fully anticipated just how big of a pain in the ass it would be.  I lost a ton of time and made me question how much “opportunity cost” did i lose yesterday.  Below is yesterdays story (or whine-fest).

I left my house at 11am, had to stop at work, which was a bit out of the way in terms of the metro route (sort of like McDonalds is out of the way to your house from wherever; its out of the way, but not extremely so).  Because of the red line delays, it took about 2 hours to get there.  1PM now, I had stopped in the office for a few minutes, and gotten back to the metro where apparently I had just missed the yellow line, so i hopped on the blue.  It was a slow ride back to the red line, then a slower ride to Union Station, getting there at 1:50PM.  Then I was able to board the MARC and take it to the BWI station, where I then needed to take a shuttle to the airport.  Then I sat around in the airport for 2 hours waiting for my flight.

So here is the breakdown: 6.5 Hours and $12 in transportation costs vs. 2 hours and $40 in transportation costs.

Maybe i was a bit too frugal yesterday and should have taken a shuttle from my house.  I lost a lot of productive hours trying to do the “DC Thing”.  We will see if this is a lesson learned for next time.
