|Your commuter car|
in some people's eyes.
There are even people in Finland who kayak to work like at Nokia and stuff, and I don't understant how that works either. I have a kayak, and I really enjoy using it, and that doesn't usually make me sweaty unless I am trying to set the water speed record or something, but I have never once successfully been able to go anywhere in my kayak without getting wet in some way, shape, or form. Never. Never ever. Maybe that is because I am a little clumsy, or maybe it is because it is actually impossible to do (I know it is not impossible to do, so I guess the former is true). But those people are just as bad as the biker folks.
Now I should be a little bit more clear in my line of thinking. I don't really think that the biker and kayaker and walk to work folks are bad. In fact, I try to be that way. I am all about those who choose to commute in a way that doesn't involve driving their Acura 30 miles each way every day. So if you are hiking or biking or taking the train or something to work, kudos to you. I am it makes you feel better AND helps keep your wallet stocked. But I just can't see how riding your bicycle 12 miles to work is practical. At least not when you are a sweaty mo-fo like me.
