Where do you live and where do you work? My wife and I recently downsized and sold our house of 16 years where we raised our kids. Now live at The Henry overlooking the Dock Street Marina and Glass Museum. I have been working the past 5 years on the north end of A Street across from Fireman’s Park.
How do you get there? Since we moved to Tacoma I have walked daily to work. Prior to that I was driving 40 minutes to and from South Hill.
How does it all add up? How much money or time do you save? Saved 20-minutes commute with less stress and more exercise. Oh, and quite a bit of gas as well. I went almost 2 months before filling up the tank!
What’s in it for you? Change of pace and quality of life.
Do you have any tips for people who may be trying these modes for the first time? Dress for the weather and buy a good backpack as well as comfortable shoes.
