    I did use the search function but it wouldn't pull in any results. How sad that it works on some people's computer but not others. It's a poor design if that's the case.

    Good post.

    I was thinking how public transportation is quite poor in Montana forcing you to drive a car. However, if you can't find a job, you may very well have to move hundreds of miles to...

    I said it before, there were almost no bike lanes. I searched for a bike map and couldn't find any. The sidewalks were broad which is perfect for walking leaving the side streets narrow with...

    All you need is close access to food and work and you can be carfree. I was thinking even in cities with good public transit, more than 50% of the population still owns a vehicle. The traffic jams...
