For many Americans, commuting to and from work, as well recreational transportation is a significant budget item.

In a way, this is not so bad. Maybe the air quality in some of our cities will begin to improve again. I always thought that Americans drive too much, particularly those who live in big cities where public transportation is available and where stores, friends’ houses and other destinations are relatively easily accessible by public transit, by walking or by bicycling.

Kayaking to work would be AWESOME! It would be even cooler to base jump to work…
