I did about 20,000 miles in the 12 months ending August, 2010, but it'll probably be more like 8,000 for the 12 months after 8/2010.

I definitely miss it. I enjoy driving, the "operating the machine" part of it, the scenery, and the chance to be out in the middle of nowhere by myself once in a while with a good excuse. (Driving around/across Montana, mostly.)

I went back to school and didn't buy a parking permit, as a way to make myself ride the bus. I got one fairly expensive parking ticket (Don't park in Faculty Reserved, is all I can tell you about that), but still nowhere near the cost of a permit, let alone a permit plus gas.

Best part of riding the bus is watching out the window as those poor suckers brush and scrape snow and frost.

So I'd say I miss driving, but I don't miss commuting.
