First Day Car Free (Car Lite, actually)
So, my brilliant plan of A.) Selling the car B.) Running to work while saving money C.) Using said money to buy a bike to replace my car, is under way!
A little bit out of order though.
Step A.) got bypassed - I didn't sell the car, it broke down and is in the shop. Rather than hitch a ride with my wife or take the bus I decided today was day 1 of going car free/lite (I will have no personal car, but my wife and I will share the car she drives to work).
So I ran to work today, interesting experience, I had to cross a very busy 4 lane road a few times. This town is very un-friendly to pedestrians!!! Additionally, it was raining.
Lesson learned: buy a bike ASAP!!! And, who needs a car?
