  •  How do you do it? (2+ / 0-)

    I live 30 miles from the city.  My car died in October.  There is no mass transit, no buses, and I worked the night shift (midnite to 0800), then school till noon.  There was no way on earth I could walk the 30 miles (I lived in the hills of Missouri), nor could I bike them (if I were that healthy, just getting out of the holler on ice would be a feat unto itself).  

    Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you're alive, it isn't.

        That you have the one bus and that it accommodates your work schedule.

          if i was in better shape i'd bike. there's a man I see most mornings and evenings who bikes the 25-30 miles from my area into downtown---over mountains. granted our mountains are only 1300 feet high, but he does it.
