I used my car today for the first time since December 16, 2004, 34 days ago. I am a public transportation person, but 34 days without using my car verifies that I am definitely relaxing and enjoying my retirement.. I am out every day; however, I use the T to get around Boston and Cambridge. Today, I went to an all day meeting at the Microsoft office in Waltham, MA. It was probably good to give the car a good run after sitting for over a month.
In the little over seven months since my last workday, I have put 1600 miles on the car. App. 1000 of the 1600 was for my Montreal, Quebec City, and Lake George trip at the end of the summer. The remaining 600 miles was during the other six months, an average of 100 miles a month.
