This past Monday I started my new job. I am working as a structural engineer for the U.S. Navy. I work on the Navy base in Bremerton, WA.
I have a two-part commute to get to work. It does not involve a bike but it also does not involve my vehicle. When I leave my place I walk about two blocks to a bus stop. The bus takes me right to the ferry dock. My wait once off the bus is about ten minutes. I take the ferry for a ten to twelve minute ride. Then, I have about a four block walk and I'm there.
A nice perk of working at the base is my bus and ferry pass are provided to me at no charge. I filled out a form, turned it in, and was presented my ORCA (One Regional Card for All).
Speaking of ferries, this coming weekend I've a mountain bike ride on Whidbey Island. This will require me to drive some, including driving my vehicle on a larger, car carrying ferry. It should be an interesting weekend.
