Make my hands respect the things you have

HEY, my friend made the news!

Going
Carless

My husband Ken
and I decided to go
car-free last
Memorial Day
weekend after our
Dodge Neon died.

The thought of
taking out a loan to
buy another car was
too distressing.

That's when we chose to sign up with HourCar.
It's not a solution for everyone, but we had
several factors working in our favor: we mostly
work from home, we're empty-nesters, there's
three bus routes nearby, and the HourCar site is
within easy walking distance. Plus, we car-share
with a couple of good friends by going half 'n
half on the insurance and gas.

Getting around this winter hasn't been as
difficult as I thought it would be. The biggest
challenge has been transversing the snow piles at
the street corners when on foot. With spring
around the corner, though, it'll soon be time to
take the bikes out of the garage, adding yet
another viable option for getting around.

Not owning a car has saved us a lot of money. It
has also been a good way to connect more with
our community. I frequently run into friends
while walking or riding the bus and train. My
hope is that more people will consider taking an
alternate mode of transportation, even if it's just
once in awhile. Wouldn't it be nice to see more
people in the streets instead of more cars?

My Goals:

goal 1 --exercise 2 days a week in 2014

I made a banana loaf instead of muffins - no liners to throw away. I also cleaned with my vinegar/water mixture, rather than chemical cleaners.
