Living in Humboldt County has some advantages that certainly off set the drawbacks. One of them is the relative lack of traffic. I’ve lived in the Bay Area and in the Washington D.C. area. I don’t regret leaving either behind. One of the reasons is the time I need to spend in a car getting somewhere on a daily basis. If I have to spend more than 15 minutes in my car I must either be going to the airport or to some place really beautiful and  well worth the drive.

So, Google has added some drive time functionality to Google Maps for rush hour addicts. I will not be checking this one out (unless I happen to be going to a conference or something).
