You sure don't need to drive anywhere. And with everything coming up in the east, many things to see for you I would bet. I can still see some things naked eye, but only at high altitude. M31 is like a fuzzy football now, but only near the zenith, whereas before it was quite extensive at 45 altitude. Using my 2 inch 55 mm Space Walk Televue, I can barely make out the Ring Nebula, but it has to be almost overhead. Several years ago I tried to find M-51 in U. Major. I had seen it many times before, had not looked at it for a few years, and lately, it is gone too. I spent an hour trying to locate it, thinking my finder was off. But then realized it was all washed out. I am almost blind in the night. About $8K of prime optics, but at least I still get great views of the planets and moon.
What do you think of these Musk mini-satellites flashing all over the place. The pros in astronomy are going ballistic about these. He is "painting" them black and expects to reduce reflectivity by 90% or so, but this might not be enough when working with the VLT, the Kecks etc. Light pollution and now satellites. Wait until the skies are full of drones 24/7. May need to get out some ack-ack batteries with radar fire control!
