So you want to sell your car?
September 25, 2008
High-flying toast to the RowdyKitten, who posted some fine links on living a car-free lifestyle. If you’re waffling on whether to sell your wheels, give these a read.
As city dwellers, we Living Smallers have it easy; living without a car has been ultra-simple (Note: special thanks to those who have given us rides late at night when we are laden with heavies, like jack-o-lanterns, for instance). Our proximity to all kinds of amenities — check out our Walk Score! — keeps us kicking pavement, and the bus system gives us a host of mass transit options when the weather turns tempestuous, or when we have a long way to go.
Needless to say, parting with the car may not be as quick and dirty for those who live in suburban or rural communities. In those cases, however, bikes are an option, as are scooters, which use far less petroleum than automobiles.
Anybody out there living small (transportation-wise) in a small town? Anyone going completely carless?
