To drive a mile...

It's official. Gas has gone over the $4 mark for us here in the middle of nowhere. And this is not premium or plus gas, but the regular cheap stuff. We're constantly trying to use less of this precious (although very bad on the environment) liquid. We walked to our favorite coffee shop the other day with Jeffrey, which was nice. We try to drive our small honda instead of our large volvo wagon when we can. You get the picture. I just wish we lived close enough to work so we could bike there. But it's 12 miles one way, so that would take at least an hour. Maybe one of these days I'll try it. Oh wait, I'd have to get a bike first, or at least get Andy's bike fixed, and a helmet. I hate money (or lack thereof).

Wow, that's incredible!! We try to drive less, too, but living in a small town, it's inevitable that we have to drive more just to shop at certain stores.

Gas is the megabeast! we are not quite up to $4 yet but we are inching closer every day:( you and Andy should get a bicycle built for two so when you have to both be @ the church you can go together, and well it would be adorable.

I biked from home to yreka with Greg once, it wasn't too bad, but I probably wouldn't do it every day. But if you want to save the environment...
