I still endorse the above statement, but when I made it I had temporarily forgotten that I am also old school.

Dear Bike Forums diary,

I quit/got fired from the job that was 12 miles away and got a job 3 miles away that pays half as much. At first I was getting twice the hours as the previous job (at twice the rate, just so weíre keeping up) but now am getting the same hours as the previous job so effectively am earning at 25% the previous rate, or 12.5% the previous previous rate, before the hours were halved.

I have an opportunity to work at a similar job also 3 miles away but on a rather treacherous stretch of road that Iíd rather avoid on my bike. I havenít calculated it yet but if I avoid that stretch of road and opt instead for the trails I think it will be closer to a 10 mile trip each way. But I should be getting twice the hours, and maybe even a higher pay rate.

Iím not tired of bike commuting yet.

Dear Bike Forums Diary,

I will be getting a car soon. Itís been almost 3 years. I donít want to live car free in Indiana. It sucks.

I think a station wagon would be nice. Or maybe a Honda Civic.

It looks like Indiana has passed or will be passing a handsfree device law with a $500 fine for violation.

If Iím not living car free or bike commuting,
I might take the fenders off of my bike and just ride when the weather is nice. 🤷‍♂️
