Yeah you might not get as much time there but the cycling is apart of the adventure.
And the necessary gear he couldn't haul on a bike ... ahh, yess ... he could spend his whole vacation ferrying gear to the train ... and then rent a truck to haul it back in time to start work. after all, that's part of the adventure ... except ... it;'s not the adventure he wants.

Why not just admit ... as many thoughtful honest people will, that living car free cuts off a lot of options?

After decades car free I KNOW this to be true. Did it anyway. But I didn't lie to myself about it.
