No A/C. No car. Take bike.
My car is in the shop. Besides having +135K miles on the odometer and needing a pretty major service, the air conditioning is blowing nothing but hot air. Now, I know some of you out there in places where A/C is considered a luxury and you're probably saying, "Ha! Fat American pig dog!", but here in NJ during the summer our weather is a lot more like a rain forest than you'd think. An in car A/C is not really a big extravagance. Don't get me started on this I have some pretty whacky social/economic theories around air conditioning and refrigeration. Any waaaay.... So the real thing I wanted to mention is that I biked into work today. The route was from Highland Park, NJ to Metuchen, NJ which according to Google Maps is about 5.5 miles. Not the best route as those of you who've ever had the pleasure of driving the route will know but riding it was a first for me. This might become a habit for office days. Although it was frickin' hot.
