We had my stepson take 2003 Honda CRV away to sell it. He is a master car salesman! There is now no car in the driveway. Eeek! What have we done?
Our goal is to live car free for several reasons:
Financial – you can save a lot of moola by living car free
Environmental-really lower carbon footprint by simply not using a car
Fitness-use your body instead of driving to the gym!
Freedom-our goal is to be financially independent in less than 10 years. According to these bloggers, http://earlyretirementextreme.com/day-7-going-car-free.html and http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2012/05/07/what-do-you-mean-you-dont-have-a-bike/ we are making a huge move towards this lifestyle by giving up our car.
Wilmington NC has made it much easier to go car free by building bike lanes.
The journey is begun!
