My longest jobsite-to-home commute ever is now complete.

Beginning yesterday at 2:55 AM I boarded a taxi to leave the undisclosed jungle location about 3 degrees north south of the Equator and began my commute.

The taxi raced across the countryside reaching speeds of 165 kph on a two lane road rated at 60 kph for the first five hours (280 miles / 450 km) of my journey. Two hours later after a quick lunch, I boarded the first of two flights.

This one was 1,512 miles (2,433 km) from Brazil’s Northeast coast back to São Paulo.

I went through the immigration / exit process and security and arrived in the Admiral’s Club for a three hour wait before boarding.

The departing flight (5,115 miles / 8,232 km) from São Paulo to Dallas arrived at 6:35 AM today.

An hour to clear Customs and a half hour drive home (27 miles / 43 km) and the trip’s done!

Total time: 29 Hours, 5 minutes.
Total distance: 6,934 miles / 11,159 km.

Equatorial crossings: 3.

Started in Summer, lunch in Winter, dinner in Summer, breakfast and home in Winter.
