Nurse Commuting: 5 Ways To the Extreme! Big Red Links #28

I commuted on a bicycle for years on the dangerous roads in and around Boston, as I described in scary detail in My Other Life: Writing on Medium. I commuted to work into the banned driving zone (a.k.a. the “shelter-in-place” advisory) around Watertown, MA when Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – the Boston Marathon Bombers – were dodging and fighting thousands of cops near by. I drove to and from work through the Governor’s state of emergency and driving ban at the height of Winter Storm Nemo. I once cross-country skied 7 miles to work from urban Brookline through the streets of the Alston and Brighton neighborhoods of Boston to neighboring Waltham. I also managed to drive to work through The April Fool’s Day Blizzard. I was the only staff in the facility for the next 36 hours; later I got a 50 dollar bonus and a nice letter. I’ve had some experience with extreme commuting.

Thinking over these stories inspired me to consider 5 REALLY extreme nursing commutes. We’re essential employees after all!

We’re under pressure! We need all the options we can get, right? I decided to push the envelope a bit and find us new alternative forms of transportation. Here’s what I found so far. Each pic links to a quick video:

  1. Tron Bike:

2. Trike Drifting:

3. World’s Largest Rope Swing:

4. World’s first manned flight with an electric multicopter:

5. And best of all: commuting IN SPACE! What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth – Fluid version:

Almost makes you want to commute right now, doesn’t it?


About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

  1. I’m a big fan of the rope swing though I believe a teleporter could work too
