the circumstance that I would love driving would be in a desert , abandoned highway/city . There are too many cars in the streets!


   There are definitely too many cars on the streets.  Especially in New Jersey. 
     The worst traffic I ever saw or had to deal with in my life was in Seoul, Korea in the 1970s.  You had the Stone Age meeting the worst of the 20th Century.  Ox carts, Kimchee Cabs, no rhyme or reason, entire families of farmers running hand in hand across eight lane highways and being wiped out, way too much volume.  It was like the Wild West on wheels.  It was a hell of a place to be a Traffic Accident Investigator.

Edit:  When driving across the country I noticed the traffic around Chicago was pretty extreme.  Plus it seemed to take forever to get around it. 
    The traffic around New York City is pretty bad too.  It's a combination of the volume and the fact that most NYC drivers are aholes.

   Our older members will relate to this... what I call old people injuries.  These are mystery injuries that pop up on their own with no apparent rhyme or reason. 
    Currently my rigtht ankle has had me hobbled for a week.  I didn't twist it, bang it, kick anything, etc..  As best I can deduce I strained it walking Pandora at the off leash dog park six days ago.  There was nothing unusual about our walk  but this is the only physical thing I did around the time it started hurting. 
    The timing couldn't be worse because everything on earth (including my bowling alley) is closed due to the virus and now I can't walk the dogs.  I am going stir crazy. 
    In the overall scheme of things this is small potatoes.  It will pass.  This is something else you guys have to look forward to as you get old.
