The goal of this Anti-Automobile April is merely "to make yourself AWARE of when you are using your car, and when you are not." I'm going to be as public about it as is feasible, since public shaming is a great thing.
Here's my chart so far:
|1||6.6||1.4||commute, walk to grocery|
|9||12.8||1.4||commute + errands, walk to grocery|
|10||11.6||0||commute + library|
The first thing to notice is the lack of a "Bike" column. I don't need one yet because I haven't biked this month yet, or even this year. Yes, this is a problem. Yes, I plan on addressing this problem in April.
My place of business is 6.6 miles from my house. Caveats for the above list include: I take the dogs for walks but I'm not counting that because it's not really a place I'm going or errand I'm running; and I'm only counting traveling in my car and not my girlfriend's car, just because.
That's 64 miles of driving in only ten days. This could be a lot worse if I worked farther away from where I live. It still feels like a lot of driving.
Here's looking forward to kickstarting my biking habit and adding another column to my list.
