Finally going car-free

I will be car-free, I finally talked my wife into getting rid of the truck. I had wanted to get rid of it since almost as soon as I started riding again.

We will be car-lite. There is no way she can get rid of her van. She has family obligations--kids & grandkids...ect.

I am excited about this.

Congratulations, xtrajack!

What kind of familly obligations does your wife have? Would she be willing to work toward getting rid of the van if you helped her to figure out carfree ways to transport the kids?
