Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker lattendicht: "What's your preferred mode of transport?"

This is such a boring answer, but I like whatever mode of transport makes the most sense. When I have lived in a city, I preferred to walk when possible, or use public transportation when walking wasn't an option. When I have lived in the suburbs or exurbs, I preferred to use a car. When I travel long distances, I tend to prefer whatever gets me there fastest, whether it's a plane or a train or a boat or a car. Unless, of course, the whole point is, say, to do a road trip or see the countryside from the window of a train.

Really the only modes of transport I tend to avoid are ones that require physical exertion — bikes, scooters, skates, etc. — not because I don't love doing those things (I do!), but because my hypohidrosis makes them impossible for longer than a few minutes, except impractically slowly in very cool weather.
