Just a reality check. Attached is the station sort...
It might be 7.6% (or whatever) at home, but the probability rockets up to 18.4% standing on the centreline.

The message is:-
-Observe where you are and hope
-travel if you want to but there is no guarantee
-observe more worry less.
-don't travel distances with any expectation

Good luck to all.
