Modes of Transportation, Ranked

  1. 1.
    Car
    I love driving but I hate traffic - luckily I don't get stuck in it very often. My range is about 3.5 hours without needing to stop, as that's usually the most I'll drive before getting on a plane. Some trail mix, a bottle of water, podcasts or ๐ŸŽถ, and I'm GTG.
  2. 2.
    Plane
    Spend a fair amount of my life traveling, as my list history will attest; I don't mind it the majority of the time, but can understand how it can be anxiety-inducing and stressful if you're not a road warrior. I have TSA preโœ”๏ธ and Delta gold status so I'm one of *those* guys.
  3. 3.
    Train
    Relaxing, the motion and clickety-clack makes me ๐Ÿ’ค. Roomier than a plane, with power and more opportunities to get up and walk around; downside is limited routes (here in the Midwest) and rigid schedule. Once took a train with my family to Utah and back (my dad worked for Amtrak for a while) - good times.
  4. 4.
    Ferry
    I have taken the Lake Express Ferry across Lake Michigan, from Muskegon to Milwaukee and back. Drive right on, go upstairs and chillax. It's a wash time-wise, but avoiding Chicago traffic is ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ. It was calm both days, not sure how it would be in rough water.
  5. 5.
    Taxi
    Not very economical, the smell - I don't care if your Grandma Frances gave it to you.
  6. 6.
    Rickshaw
    It's the romance of the Handsome Cab without the guilt or dander of the equine.
  7. 7.
    Handsome cab
    The worst, especially when the horse has been eating Beefarino.
