no, i don't lane split in NC. it's illegal here (unlike CA where i learned to ride). the bike just makes it easier to get in and out of tight spots, plus the extra 'oomph' for passing doesn't hurt.

getting home wasn't that bad anyway. traffic eastbound on I-40 was nothing. i usually get off at 54 (exit 273) and head North into Chapel Hill, but the overpass looked like a nightmare so i went one more exit down and doubled back. easy as cake.

oh ok. Thanks for not getting offended. I tired to make it as non-confrontational as possible

Yup - seems the Thursday evening game didn't disrupt things too much. I went home about 6:30 and while traffic on I-40 westbound was perhaps a tad slower here and there than normal, it wasn't bad. I did not that the exit for NC54 was pretty backed up - that seems to be where the extra game traffic was headed. The exits for 15-501 and NC86 had normal levels of traffic. I didn't venture near campus to see how the traffic was flowing there.

I find that traffic usually moves along just fine on I-40E at 4:30-4:45 until about mile marker 285 - just before my exit. Then it slows to a crawl. If there is an issue (accident, free admission to the fair, etc) it can double my admittedly short commute.

The suggestion of Page/Global etc was good except that it would have me going way out of the way and so probably wouldn't help my commute time even on a bad day on I-40.

I ended up exiting at Aviation Parkway and that turned out so well that I might keep that as my regular go-home route!

Veering back to the State Fair (Fare?) canned food day, WRAL is reporting:
Fairgoers donated 237,534 pounds of food, an increase of more than 71,000 pounds from a year ago and more than the 2009 goal of 200,000 pounds, officials said.The food donations are equivalent to 200,028 meals, officials said.



Pretty impressive !
