The Day Red Ford Died


Turns out it is worse than the garage first thought and the car will cost more to repair than it is worth. The drive shaft is shafted.

I am tempted to try and do without a car for a few months (or possibly forever).

Tonight I ran to Inverkeithing (4.5 miles) and caught the train to South Gyle and ran home (1.7 miles). I'm pretty sure I can sustain this way of commuting (although occasionally I might cycle) and it will be a great base for marathon training.

As for weekend trips, shopping, etc., using bike/bus/feet will be less convenient but surely possible. I can always hire a car from time to time.

However if I spot a cheap, small, economical and reliable looking car I could be tempted. . .
