I feel I am very lucky for one reason, but that reason is mostly my doing. My commute to work every day is under three minutes and about two miles at the most. I seem to be the exception, not the rule around East Texas.
I know my sister and many of you have had killer commutes. If you work in Small Town A (Zavalla) and live in Small Town B (Hudson) the two lane roads in between could be quite hazardous. That alone could be detrimental to your health, if you got in an accident, but there is even more to it.
