Traffic 1, Shooting 0

I had blocked off some calendar time on Tuesday for my (almost) weekly trip to the indoor range. A planned conference call ran long, but it seemed I still had time to make the trip. That is until I got to the overpass at the interstate.

Why is the exit ramped backed up? Looking from the bridge to the highway, I saw all traffic was at a dead stop, in all lanes. Sitting in that would surely not allowed me to be back to my desk in a timely manner. With much regret, I made a U-turn and headed back to the office to eat my sandwich over my laptop.

I was reminded of this article on the "Top 10 Health Benefits of Going To a Shooting Range" that I shared a couple years ago. According to the author, on this day I would regrettably not be improving my physical or mental discipline, nor improving focus or exercising my eyesight, among other benefits of shooting.

All thanks to an overloaded interstate highway system.
