Alternative Transportation Expo - 5/15

If you read my recent post on Fresh Aire, you know I'm a big fan of riding Metro, including the Metro bus --- I know, doesn't seem as glamourous, but really it's cool, it's easy, and it gives me a chance to read. I've also recently been debating giving up my car and going the FlexCar route. So, even though this may not sound like the most "fun" event in the world, I'm excited to go and check out my options for gettin' around with the least environemental impact.

.... live blogging update ....

I just flipped over to The Green Miles to read about his experiences with trying to give up his precious Knight 2000, uh, I mean Saturn, and it turns out he's writing about this same event ... Great minds think a like right!

Anyway, no need to reinvent the wheel, so without further ado, here, directly copied blantatly plagarized from The Green Miles, here are the details of this event:
