I walk from my bedroom down to my office. Roughly 50 feet.

I'd like to say that I was "going green," but living here in the Scranton suburbs one has no choice but to drive solo, hence our frequent rush-hour back-ups on I-81. Everything here is very, very sprawled out, and mass transit options are abysmal. I can't wait until enough New Yorkers move here to demand a subway (and a Dave & Buster's, and maybe an Ikea because I've been a good boy!)

Elevated train in Chicago I'm pretty sure. Elevated trains in NY are called "el" trains; we don't spell it "L" since there's an "L" subway here.


I also think it's so funny how "rolling down a hill" is a choice lol

I walk, or take the metro. Sometimes I drive if I have to bring a lot of stuff in. (Baltimore)

On a nice sunny day I walk.

If it's raining, too hot or too cold I drive. I live a few blocks from my job in Uptown Houston.
