Let's hear it!
We decided to move closer to the areas that we have to drive to everyday and eliminate a 20 minute drive to and from our house everyday...this wasn't a big deal because we just rent. We are also contemplating blowing up our minivan in protest
Xendrick and I recently purchased a new car that got us 700 km on a single tank of gas (50L tank). It gets better mileage than our little Kia, and that mileage was really a big selling factor when we were looking.
I'd bike or bus to work if I could, but there are no bus routes to my house, and the hill I'd have to ride up at the end of the day would be the end of me. Plus, at 24 weeks pregnant, I won't be biking for much longer anyway.
Hey, Pea, I just spent four days in Victoria and loved it! People there are so friendly and yes, I saw many many many cyclists. Good for them!
24 weeks pregnant? Congratulations! Plus the extra Body heat from the baby should help reduce the home heating oil bill!
. . . like I always say . . . you have the right do and act however you want. . . .
. . . It seems Europeans also infringe on peoples rights when it comes to guns and other issues we take for granted here.
Hank C. That's funny cause I can't picture myself driving a big *** truck. I've no use for one though....so I don't feel the need.
We watch all the people driving their big SUV's and mini vans around the city. Driving them like there sports cars. and I wonder why on earth they'd want to spend so much on gas and Insurance when they don't need them. I see hundreds of SUV's with 1 person and hundreds of mini vans with 1 person.
I wonder how many purchased their vehicle not based on need but on perceived 'status'?
