So, @alpharalpha, where is “down here?"

Road cyclists here are rare, seeing one on the road and not waving is plain rude! I'm talking once in a month rare, except for the weekend, that's a group ride day which doesn't count, I think…
I’m slightly more peeved by subscribers who give “cutesy” or obscure locations. Not to pick on XXXX, whose posts I routinely read, but as an example:

I must confess though, I have thought about listing my LOCATION as: D’uh? {Jim from Boston)

This is one of the best examples…cutesy, obscure (and bohemian) [by the appropriately named]...:

Then there was this following post:

When will there be nobody home.
End of rant (Actually, @alpharalpha, I eventually recognized that you are in Florida from another post ).

I miss vacuuming the Cheetos off the floor.
I don't know nothing, and I memorized it in school and got this here paper I'm proud of to show it.

Been car free for 6 years.

I don't remember giving up too much. I suppose a car is convienent, but incredibly expensive and destructive to the environment. We still use public transportation, but for daily life I use my bike for everything.
