Ferry Freedom

I did the math.

I spend 12 hours per week travelling to pick up and drop off the little one via ferry.

I spend $60 on ferry fare

I spend $18 on parking (I could spend less, but I am so tired, I don't want to take any longer to get home than absolutely necesssary)

I spend about $30 on gas (2 return trips from the north end of Vancouver to Tsawwassen)

That is close enough to $110 per week on travel not including the cost of food.

By working 12 hours bookkeeping no top of my day job, I can cover the total cost of flying the little one over (the cost of which is about $100/week more than I spend using the ferries).

This gives me about 5-6 more hours per week with her at home as she can arrive earlier on Fridays and leave later on Sundays.

I look forward to sending David Hahn his pink slip.

Profits up/ Ridership down.

That's some great job Mr. H. is doing.

Hey, maybe we the disaffected should form a consortium and buy our own boat that and exclude any and all Pols, Lobbyists, Content Consultants and Corporate Fatcats.

(aren't there a couple of pretty fast vessels docked across the water from you GAB that we could get our hands on, cheap?)
