Default One Car for 4 Licensed Drivers

In my family, we have one car for 4 licensed drivers. We brought up our
children cycling, and now that they're older (one is a Junior in
High School and the other is a Freshman in college), they have continued
the good habit. I commute by bicycle to work year round, regardless of
weather, unless the roads are treacherous. My commute is 8 miles.

Nowadays, if I lived in a large city with mass transit, I would combine
mass transit with a nice folding bicycle.

------------------------------------

I can tell it's Psychic Wednesday.

Are we supposed to guess why four licensed drivers can't get the Honda
to start? :-)

One clue (oilfreeandhappy) tells me you should check the oil level
first. :-(

Stay safe, Jim.

Actually, the last car that I personally owned, about 20 years ago, was
a Honda Civic. Good little car, but I prefer my bicycle now. It's a
win-win - good exercise, oil-free, fresh air...

It's time to buy more vehicles, if you are experiencing scheduling problems.

That's great, but now that they have to be places quickly it's an outdated
method of travel, ineffecient for today's travel requirements.

You're one of the hazards on the roads if you ride during bad weather.

Why would you need a folding bicycle? Buses have racks on the front of them
for carrying bicycles of those that want to appear as if they rode the
bicycle to work. {;^)

i congratulate you on your commitment to the environment. if more people
practiced similar lifestyles, then we might not find it necessary to fight
wars over oil. however, i have yet to see a bicycle that does not use
rubber, grease, and plastic. indeed, they will quickly grind to a halt
without oil of some type.

by the way, your page would load a heck of a lot faster if you resized the
image of the backpack to the size the web page uses rather than depend on
the browser to resize it... i was able to get it down to just 27 KB and
still have it look fine.

HUH? Ok here goes my random babbling:

In my family we have three coffee drinkers. When the kids were younger
I was the only one but they started as they got older (one is a Junior
in HS and one is just out of college). I pick up a cup of coffee on my
way home and drink it with a straw because the roads have many potholes
in them and don't like to get coffee on my clothes. My commute is 7
miles.

If I lived in a large city with mass transit, I might bring a thermos
with me so I can refill my cup while commuting.

(I always wanted to get that off my chest and since we're telling
random stories, this seemed like a good time to do it

If governments weren't obsessed with outlawing private companies from
offering mass transit, and weren't so obsessed with legislating transit
monopolies for themselves, we might see more mass transit so you wouldn't
spill your drink.

A couple of years ago we had an example of this bizarre government mindset
at work in my community. As a result, we still have no mass transit of any
kind.
