will be soon relocated in the DC area, and have been met with some oposition when talking to perspective landlords who all say you need a car in DC. What is the Metro for? Is it these peeps are just blindered to the idea of alternatives to burning fossil fuel vehicles? Just wondering, as this is a chance to dump a big expense in my life, a Dodge Caravan, while it serves me well, it is 200-300 a month that could be saved or used to ride Amtrak to NYC to bike. It would be fun to start over in a new place with a new lifestyle being car free.
What are some of the obstacles to commuting in DC. I'll be working in Rockville, and have been looking at places on line in Silver Springs, Tahoma Park, Germantown, and Gaithersburg, so it's not DC proper, but could be fun just the same. I lived almost car free for three years five years ago, but this is MPLS and it's rather bike friendly.
Winter's have got to milder there, something I'm looking forward to, not having to layer up to ride. I can't wait to get out there and just see what it's like. I'm stoked for the culture, the history, the job. Looking forward to hearing from y'all.
