94 Vans in 5.4 miles
I have been working at the same place for the last year and have noticed that i come across a lot of Vans on my commute. I don’t know why i noticed this to begin with, but i thought it was crazy that so many people that live in the Garden Grove/Santa Ana area own so many vans. It is a weird thing to focus on, but when you take the same route every day for a year, you start noticing things like this.
Today i decided to count how many vans i saw on my way to work. So as soon as i exited the 22fwy, i started counting, and by the time i got into work i had hit 94 van sightings. Now i am not talking company vans, SUVs or even Scion XBs for that matter. Nope, i am talking about actual family vans. Regular old passenger vans. NINETY FOUR! From the time i exit the freeway until i park my car at work it is only 5.4 miles. I am sure that i missed some or may have counted a couple twice, as they passed me up and caught up with them again, but jesus that is still a lot of vans.
I don’t know a single person who owns or even wants a van, but if i were a traveling van salesman i would know where to go to sell one.
