Awareness of the outside world. World Water Day.
You are driving a trailer to a schooling venue. You have a choice of two routes.
Route A. Direct route. Two-lane. Winding. Not horrid but not lovely.
Route B. Longer. Wide, straight two-lane for most of the route. Easy ride for horses. Then 15% of trip is moderate unpleasantness up and over terrain to get back to the direct route.
Which would you chose?
Stay safe. Stay sane.
