Gas Saving Alternatives
With the price of gas skyrocketing everyone is looking for alternatives. Horse and wagon is my top choice, unfortunately I own neither. Some of them are impractical for the area I live in which has hills. Skateboarding and roller skates conjure up images of broken limbs.
I have considered a moped but can't figure out where the groceries would fit although the guy on the bike with a 10 ton load looks like he has figured out this issue.
There is bus service in my town but I think the closest stop mean using my feet to get there.
I do use my feet quite a bit and walk my daughter up the hill to preschool 2 days a week. Making the track back and forth 2 times a day for pick up and drop off in the humidity really takes a lot out of me and I am not getting any younger.
Someday I wonder if we will go back to the horse and buggy- For trips to the grocery store I would look forward to it.
