I couldn't see a way to cross Route 7 legally without a vehicle. A few feet later, I found that the route to the bus terminal isn't completely sidewalked. It's been a long time since this area has been an idyllic rural setting; there should be legal ways for pedestrians to move about. I shouldn't need a car to travel 200 feet.
Of course, there are pretty flowers.
OK, so we now have (admittedly limited) data from three different means of travel between my house and my headquarters.
- Bicycle: 4 hours (with a broken bicycle, don't forget)
- Public Transportation (with some walking): 2 hours, 10 minutes
- Automobile: 1 hour, 20 minutes
