So now that summer is coming to an end, there is going to be a lot less of this…
…and a lot more of this:
Actually, that’s a lie. Pretty soon we’re going to be buried in snow. But at least for the fall, I get to spend about thirty-forty minutes a day looking at that path and the sights surrounding it.
As I did last fall, I have decided to try a Zero-Waste approach to my commute: biking. The commute from my current town is much longer than it was from my old apartment, but instead of having to ride the road the whole way, I get to travel the bike path. No gasoline, AND I get to exercise on my way to and from school.
Okay, I’m misleading you in true rosy-glassed blogger fashion. It really isn’t all sunshine, green grass, and open bike path. Last week, the rain came down so hard that I woke up and stepped in a huge puddle and Sean and I had to park illegally on campus because we haven’t gotten our parking passes yet. I also biked to school on a sunny morning and came home that evening in the rain…
My plan is to avoid purchasing the parking pass so that I have to bike or take the bus to campus…or pay the consequences, since the parking people are extremely thorough and somewhat sadistic.
What does your commute look like? Do you drive or bike? Do you take the bus or the subway…or both?
