Everywhere is walking distance, if you have the time.

Nashville, like L.A. without a tan.
Neat blog; will have to read into it more.
All of those SHOULD be close enough that you don't have to drive but unfortunately sometimes they aren't.
I don't have insurance and I live in the east bay area. Most of the free clinics are in San Francisco which is pretty much impossible to ride my bike to.
However I can bring my bike on the bus or bart.
Do you guys consider using public transit living car free? I assume so. I sure do.
Anyways the healthcare thing is really hard for me as I don't own a car.
If I get hurt seriously or become seriously ill I have to pay thousands of dollars for an ambulance unless I can find someone to drive me because the only hospital that will take me is 20 miles away.
Unfortunately, I don't think this is going to change anytime soon.
I deleted posts that discussed health insurance and were getting political. If this turns into an insurance discussion it will be moved to P&R.
