I still remember the feeling of liberation when i watched that old, broke-down hatchback being towed away....
It was 3-1/2 years ago, and I haven't even been to a car lot, looked at a car ad in a paper, paid an insurance premium, (I DID renew my license last year, though, just in case I needed to drive something) or been to an auto parts store.
Snow sucks, as cars driving over it turns it to ice, and it was only last month when I found some studded tires for less than $100 apiece; other than that, I'm riding! I commute, pay bills, do family fun rides w/ nephew(s) & my daughter, even have a trailer in case I need to haul...I dunno, groceries or laundry, maybe? Used it for both at various times.
I'm absolutely loving it, and it's gonna take something earth-shattering to make me buy a car again.
