Its been one month living as a car lite family. For the most part we pretty much (at least I haven’t) noticed it. Only one time would it have been nice to have my old car and that was to get long lumber from Home Depot. I ended up renting their truck for a half hour to haul the stuff home. Problem averted. The only interesting thing about this transaction is that I was required to show them my proof of insurance. This implies that if you didn’t have car with insurance you couldn’t actually rent their truck.
On another note my Metrofiets will finally be shipping from Portland on Monday. The last 6 weeks have been attempting to acquire a part, installing that part, and then working out some kinks. Well all kinks have been worked out. The shipping company assures me the shipment will take 4 days to get here. I’m honestly guessing 6. Here are some pictures of the finished bike.
