I remember being in high school back in the sixties and there was talk to completely switch to the Metric system by the turn of the 21st century. It never happened. Too old for me to try to get use to another measuring system.. Liberia and Myanmar are the other two countries that donít use metric. From what I read, they are planning on phasing in the metric system

I graduated high-school in 98. They were still saying it then.

It varies daily for me. Today it was 180 miles round trip. That's probably about average for me. Thank God, I get paid for mileage! My check each week for mileage runs about $600.

I have been very fortunate in my life. I was always in walking distance. Now in Ohio the past 20 years. 20 miles has been my greatest distance. At todayís gas price. I really feel for those that have a great distance for employment

Retired June first. For 25 years it was 160 mile round trip,
most often 6 days a week.

Was worth it
