A bit of an exaggeration there. The traffic light on Morse and 466 limits the time you would have to wait even if one car after another comes through the gates without much pause.

Patience is a virtue. Embrace it.

There is a running joke here about Pacific northwest drivers at 4 way stops.

You might get a laugh at our local commercial showing this. www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XdohA-4tQ0]4-Way Stop, You Go. No You Go. No You Go. Guy - YouTube

If clicking doesn't work you may have to past in.

I'll have to admit that being the "new kid on the block" isn't the most fun, cause we all like to know what we are doing. But, if it gives me a chance to meet new friends then I'm all for it! After a few months if I still need more friends I can always pull the map out again.....

Which reminds me, this could be a good way for singles to meet each other!

Another reason why I want to be in TV!

I'm embarrased to admit this, please don't yell at me, but in my newbie ignorance a couple of times when I rented last year (during the off season), I waved golf carts through if I was entering through a gate and there was not a car behind me. I won't do that again when I go back to TV. Mea culpa, mea culpa.
