Who's gone the longest?

I don't know -- call me the dork kid if you like, but I didn't start going to Mass regularly at all until just before Christmas last year, and since then I've missed exactly once (last Sunday, November 29), and that was because I was directing a chess tournament (again, call me a dork if you like) in another city, and there was exactly one Mass (7 AM Sunday) that I could physically get to without neglecting my tournament director duties, and that would have required a 3-mile walk (each way), and after being up until 2 AM Saturday night/Sunday morning (because the last round of the tournament didn't end until then), I overslept Sunday morning.

Other than that, I walk about 2 miles (each way) to an NO Mass every Sunday and holy day, and most weekday mornings as well, and I occasionally ride my bike (8 miles each way) to a TLM on Sunday. Even though we're in the middle of a snowstorm right now that will end up leaving about 5 inches of snow, I'm intending to do both (TLM and NO) tomorrow. I take the Sunday obligation seriously, and it would take something totally beyond my control (such as what happened last Sunday) to make me miss it.
