That folks is the extent of my road tripping these days - one round trip in the morning and one around 1pm. As far as schedules go - it isn't bad - although the store is open 24 hours, there isn't a lot of customers until closer to 10am and by then he's already had his 'lunch' break and the day is darn near over! But it's not like we haven't worked opposite schedules before - for many years, he worked night shift and I worked day shift - we were perpetual ships passing in the night! We shared 1 car between us which was ok - unless someone busted the schedule and got home late making the other person late and all hell broke loose, but... shrug. Life, you know? I miss the regularity of the paychecks of those days.
But we still get little adventures here and there - a trip to the green house over on 419 for potted plants & water plants for the pond; a trip to Hornings over on 501; I drove some ladies over to the Schuykill County fairgrounds a few weeks ago for the Wine Festival and made enough to treat us to chinese food! Sure they aren't grandiose adventures to Salem or Mt. Union or Ocean City, MD - but I still get out in the sunshine with some loud music on the stereo, wind in my face and driving at my speed and for a few minutes - the knees don't hurt, my pockets aren't empty, and all is right with the world. It IS a road trip!
