Best public service, would just be to forget about it. With the virus issues, vaccinations, travel frustrations, etc, why add more disruption? Even my city trash collectors know, to save daylight, they just go to work an hour earlier. There, now I feel better, even though I'll have to put the trash out, the night before. [emoticon]

One of my buddies fro high school has been preaching for years that we should just move the clocks 30 minutes once and never discuss it again.

What? Why? I set my clocks ahead about 8 or 9 PM, then go to bed at my "regular time". I don't lose any sleep at all! No way would I get up at 0200, reset the clocks, and go back to bed. I don't know any body who does that.

For those who really hate this twice a year foolishness, have you contacted your State Legislators and asked (or demanded) that it be stopped? If not, why not? If enough people made such contacts, perhaps the legislators would listen, and pass a law to have the clocks stay on the same time year 'round. In fact, I would prefer to be on DST year 'round. However, I am not going to try to force my preferences on everybody!

What's the big deal on changing clocks?

For an RVer.

I've changed 2 times in one day several times in long tows.

One day three times. Left El Paso on US-180 headed east, changed from Mtn to Central TZ at Culberson County line near Guadalupe Peak, changed from Central TZ to Mtn TZ at NM border south of Carlsbad, changed from Mountain to Central TZ again at TX border just past Hobbs.

Headed west is better because you gain an hour at each crossing.

I won't even mention the potential fun in Arizona where much of the state does not do DST, and the Navaho Nation does DST.

I don't care either way, it has become a quaint tradition but doesn't really do anything. Except maybe increase traffic deaths, heart attacks, suicides and a few other things.
