The readers of the D. C. Auto Geek Blog know that there is no Park City Taxi in operation in the city of Washington. D. C. Why would there be? Park City is in the state of Utah which is very far away from Washington, D. C. So why would anyone even consider the possibility that such a transportation service might be operating in our nation’s capital? The simple answer to this question is that probably no one would consider this possibility. The more complex answer is probably much the same as the simple one in this regard.
TAKE A SHUTTLE FROM SALT LAKE CITY TO PARK CITY BUT NOT TO WASHINGTON, D. C.
So why then has a blog post been written on this subject if no one would actually consider the possibility presently up for consideration? The answer to this question is that just because a possibility is presently up for consideration and there is no chance that a person would consider it does not mean that it does not warrant a blog post. Perhaps it is the function of the blog post to raise awareness of the possibility and thus get people to consider it who might not otherwise do so.
It is in the spirit of the second paragraph of this blog post that the D. C. Auto Geek makes the following pronouncement. Yes there is no taxi service from Park City, Utah in operation within the Washington, D. C. metro area but this does not mean that this fact does not mean it is not worth considering the possibility of a thing. It just means that (as far as we are aware) this service does not exist. There are many things that do not exist which are worth considering and this happens to be one of them.
There is a connection between any Park City taxi and the city of Washington D. C. This connection is obvious and straight forward but it is difficult to explain to a person who has not experienced it directly. It is difficult to explain because the connection is an experiential process and explaining an experience using language is not the same thing as experiencing the thing itself. Sometimes language is the best a person can do to attempt to transfer the information that he or she wishes to transfer. One must come to accept the fact that not 100% of the information will be effectively transferred.
EXPLAINING THE PARK CITY TAXI CONNECTION
So what exactly is this connection? Whether or not it must be experienced in order to fully understand it we still must do our level best to explain it. Whether or not language can full transfer the understanding of the experience we must do our level best to explain it with the tools that we have at our disposal. Just because some small percentage of understanding has been transferred does not mean that the effort should not be made. Quite the contrary, the effort should absolutely be made because if it has not been made then we shall never progress past square one.
So let us then proceed past square one. Let us attempt to explain the connection using the tool of language that we have and if not all the information has been properly transferred so be it. We shall just have to accept the fact that we live in a world where not everybody fully understands each other. True, this may cause problems but problems are there to be solved. If we do not take the chance in the communication process then it can not be said that we have fully lived our life.
Just because I am a D. C. Auto Geek does not mean that I cannot take a ride in a Park City taxi from time to time. Indeed, although the city of Washington, D. C. is my home base (so to speak) I do frequently travel around this country of which my city of origin is the capital. You might say that it is through my many varied travels that my love for the city of Washington, D. C. is both strengthened and honed. This is not to say that the rest of the country is inferior to Washington, D. C. but rather that I have a special affinity towards Washington, D. C. and when I am absent from this city my heart grows fonder as it were.
MY EXPERIENCE RIDING IN A PARK CITY TAXI
You might wonder how a D. C. Auto Geek ended up being in Park City Utah. Actually, it is not that difficult to figure out. Park City, Utah happens to be a posh destination and as such, people from all over the country and the world for that matter are drawn to it in order to enjoy its many varied attractions.
Once one arrives in Park City the question as to how to get around it becomes an issue. This of course, is no matter because there are many options available. As an self described Auto Geek I am partial to transporting myself in an automobile. There are actually only a very limited number of other transportation options that do not involve automobiles. Certainly one can walk around the city and this is actually a great way to do it because it is healthy and carbon footprint neutral. However, if you are like me and prefer to travel by automobile then there really is no better option than to make use of a taxi.
