...and you feel like an incredibly smart dumb guy.
So trying to figure out the logistics over doing another Jeep journey out west had eluded me for months.
Since it takes 4-5 days to get out to the areas I want to be, that's a "week" of driving right there.
And moving slowly hotel to hotel a couple hours apart while working during the day -- breaking down a big monitor and keyboard, worrying about not having late checkout till 5pm, etc is a lot of work, and really only saves a day over a work week.
Then getting ready for bed after 10pm changes last night it suddenly clicked.
I already WFH (usually) two days a week, I've WFH two straight weeks this year already due to various issues.
So here's the key --
(And thinking 2023 for this)
Take one weekend to travel to the St. Louis area;
Work remotely from the same hotel room through Friday evening.
Then a two week vacation starts.
Co-ordinate with Eric that I either pick him up for the first week in Denver, and drop him off in Las Vegas. Maybe get Sam, too.
Or, I bee-bop with the Jeep and pickup Eric for the 2nd week in Las Vegas then drop him off in Denver on the way home.
Spend a weekend to go Denver to St. Louis.
Work remotely from a hotel for a week;
And then a weekend to get back home.
In short: weekend driving--week working remote--two week vacation--week working remote--weekend driving
