    Living life without a car

    Living life without a car

    Could you live without a car? For many, cars are a necessary tool for getting to work, bringing kids to sports and school events, shopping and more. I recently made the decision to sell my truck and go car free! My situation is perhaps a bit different from others in that, I'm retired and don't go to the office every day, I don't have any kids living at home, I'm close to amenities (stores, bank, Post Office etc.) and live is a pretty bike friendly community, Boise, Idaho. In this episode, I share what led me to my decision, how I'll manage daily transportation and more.
