The 2021 Commuting Mileage Thread!

Well... Thank God That's Over!!! In hindsight 2020 SUCKED!!! I've managed to survive everything that's been going on. I've re-upped yet again at the English school in China I've been working for, and as such, it has kept me safe and employed throughout the dumpster fire of last year. Happy New Year!!! So, it's now 2021 (at least for me it is). That means it's time for the newest edition of the Commuting Mileage Thread! I know I'm not that active on the forums, but I still don't have a car, want a car (or even like cars for that matter), and I'm still riding my bike almost every day).

For reference, here's the link to the 2020 thread, the 2019 thread, and a link to the 2018 thread to compare how everyone did over the last few years! If you check out this link to the 2017 thread, you'll find links to earlier year's editions.

Quote:
Here's the instructions based on those written by Swifty . . .

Quote(ish):
This is a thread where us commuters can log our yearly commuting mileage in. Should be fun!

To add your mileage (Standard or Statute Mile)(and rounded to the tenth of a mile), just copy the list from the previous post and add your name and mileage at the appropriate line in the list. To update your mileage, cut your name and mileage line, and paste it at the new location according to your new mileage total.

[EDIT] By keeping everything in "Courier New", the list aligns nicely... You'll have to change the font, but it makes it easier to keep things looking good [/EDIT]

For even more fun, you can highlight your name in red (Here's a Link to "HOW TO") and you could even add your state's 2 Letter code, or a country code after your name to let us know where you are...

Example: Let's suppose the list is as follows:

Swifty ______________________________ 1275.8 (Total 1405)
John (OH) ___________________________ 1200.4
Mary _________________________________ 988.5 (Total 1350)
Robert (CA) __________________________ 500.0


I want to put in my mileage, so I copy the list above, put in my name plus my current commuting mileage total for this year (Optionally, following that, I'll add parenthesis with my Cumulative Total Miles, or an alternative distance measurement (I use the Chinese Lǐ ()). You can also put in your commute ratios in brackets... e.g [3/5] is three commutes for five opportunities:

Swifty ______________________________ 1275.8 (Total 1405)
John (OH) ___________________________ 1200.4
Mary _________________________________ 988.5 (Total 1350)
Robert (CA) __________________________ 500.0
K'Tesh (PRC) _________________________ 251.7 (643.74) [45/60]

A week later I want to update my mileage, So I copy over the list from the most recent post, and adjust the mileage behind my name. As my mileage has become greater that the mileage of the person above me in the list, I cut and paste my name to represent the changed standings: (You can also put in your commute ratios in brackets... e.g [3/5] is three commutes for five opportunities)

Swifty ______________________________ 1275.8 (Total 1405)
John (OH) ___________________________ 1200.4
Mary _________________________________ 988.5 (Total 1350)
K'Tesh (PRC) _________________________ 671.6 (1931.21) [53/75]
Robert (CA) __________________________ 500.0
Please don't color your state's code or total miles in blue, I only added the color to show where I edited in changes

If you want, you can do a quick search and check out the threads from past years, beginning in 2009. Wow! Has it been 12 years already?!

For me, 2020 ended emotionally like the dumpster fire it was (thanks in large part to the continued stress coming from the Maryland/Virginia border area).... I'm still praying that the rest of the 2020s will better (I don't want to know how much worse it could get).

I Pray Everyone Has A Safe, Prosperous, and Healthy 2021!

And as I've started this... I'll go first (again)

K'Tesh(PRC)_________________________ 0000.0

It's -4C (24.8F) outside (not including the wind chill), and the snow on the ground is a little over a day old. As it never warmed up yesterday, it's still a crunchy dry snow that packs down under my wheels when I'm on it, but the main roads have been pretty well cleared. I'll need to get on the bike a little later today, but I'm not looking to do any kind of serious distance.
