Onur, +Kris McQueen  and I tried kicking field goals today. How hard could it be? We all completed kicks from 25 yards out (i.e. ball on the 8 yard line) but failed from 30.

Wonderful thinking. But, in my travels, I think it misses a few major conceptual points:
1)  A large percentage of travel on I-5 is 18 wheelers. And, they burn a lot of diesel. I would guess that the issue of long distance freight is a better issue to tackle.
2) I personally hate going to a port, parking, getting on, traveling, getting off, getting transportation.  Even if the travel were instantaneous, the logistics of getting on and off are a significant burden. 
3)  Which is why, I would prefer, driving to a station, driving the car onto/into the delivery system, traveling, driving the car off of/out of the delivery system, and being on my way. I guess I like the model of a ferry better. Besides, on long trips, I frequently have lots of baggage.

Bought an Expresso S2U bike. I like the bike a lot and they did a great job fixing it up. They missed the initial project delivery date by about a week which was a bummer, and communication about the new date was somewhat lacking. In the end when it was available, though, they were very accommodating about delivery. The bike works great. This particular bike has a large set of features that are only available when it's properly connected to the internet. They didn't really give me any help connecting to the internet, nor in figuring out what I needed to do to get an Expresso account. I sort of expected that, and I don't think it's an issue for other types of bikes. In the end Expresso/Ifitness helped me figure it out. It would be nice to at least get a disclaimer from Fitness Superstore like "You can connect this bike to the internet, but you should work with the bike company to do that. Here is the serial number (which they need) and web address." Love the bike.
