On my current budget I cannot afford to purchase let alone insure, gas up, repair, etcetera, a car. Plus, I like that I’m helping keep the planet cooler by not burning fossil fuels. Thus, I am carless in Oregon. Which, isn’t that bad really.
Thankfully I work at home as a Software Test Engineer at beAutomated—where we make custom WordPress Plugins—so my commute is from my bedroom to my living room. And, as you’ve seen in a past post, the majority of what I buy food wise (and pretty much everything else) is well within walking distance at the local Fred Meyer store. Fellow nerds will appreciate that I also live right next to Fry’s Electronics as well.
But, the point of this post is to let you know that injuries or not I walk more than I state here on this site. As for the image I used, it’s a scene from the film Dude, Where’s My Car? which is how I feel sometimes being that I’ve always had some kind of motor vehicle since I was old enough to drive. But hey, who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
