[from a thread about a week ago]
This story has had a very happy twist -- I just learned a minute ago that arrangements are being made for me to do much of my work 25 miles from home.Originally Posted by banerjek
I have not yet learned exactly how many days I'll be there. At this point I expect I'll have to drive to the main base 60 miles away to deal with some administrative details at the very beginning, but within a couple weeks I'll probably telecommute a couple days while working 3 (or maybe 2 if I'm unlucky) at the facility 25 miles away.
In other words, I'll have one of the better commutes out there. Chances of being able to complete the Everest Challenge (my biking goal for the year) are good. I even have someone to ride with. Doesn't get much better than this. If only I could control the wind......
