Re: Only on the DC Beltway...

I managed to "escape" Fairfax by 2:15p today and using the EZPass lane and hitting I270 to the cross county toll road (200), I made reasonable time home. There was a bit too much "red" on the map to stay on the I495 beltway over to I95, even being so early. There was some slow traffic on I95 from the cross county to nearly Rt 100, but it was at least moving. Hitting PA at 5:45p "sucked mightily", however...major backup just due to volume and timing.

At least my JGC is major comfortable and the tunes were loud.

I can't speak for the I-495, but it's anything but a picnic here on the central peninsula, South Bay and East Bay. The Bay Area has grown so much so fast over the past 5 years that it can take 30 minutes for me to go one exit up 101 (about 1 mile or so) during commute. As far as L.A. goes, there is no time day or night where you can go through downtown on the 405 when it's not packed.

I like it :-) Reminds me of all the math I had to do to pull this one off.
