This morning I rode the Long Haul Trucker to the mechanics to pick up the Subaru. It was so chilly out, my bike racks were frozen when I got there. I had to slide the LHT into the belly of the beast for transport.
It's good to have the car back. As strange as it sounds, it allows me to ride more. When we're a one car family with four kids, it helps my wife if I do a little more kid taxiing. Only having one car means that we have to be incredibly strategic about when to go to the grocery, when to run errands and when to do the random stuff that needs a car. So it helps if I do some more standard things like taking kids to school. If I didn't do a bit more of that stuff, it would put 100% of the burden on Angie. So the Subaru allows me to help out a ton and ride a ton. Win.
