Getting Around Without A Car

I sold my car last November and started traveling back in January, even though the traveling part was kind of by accident. That’s a long story I’ll get into at another time. I also have so many other stories about all the places I’ve been and the people I’ve met, but those need time to properly develop before they’re published.

For now I thought it’d be fun to look at some numbers from the last three months. The data tells its own story, if you know what to look for.

February, March, and April 2015

Places I’ve stayed for at least one night

  • Seattle, Washington
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Port Angeles, Washington
  • St. Paul, Minnesota
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Grand Rapids, Michigan
  • Somewhere in Arkansas
  • Austin, Texas
  • Arlington, Texas
  • Kansas City, Missouri

Public transit systems I’ve used along the way

  • Grand Rapids, Michigan
  • Port Angeles, Washington
  • Seattle, Washington
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Austin, Texas
  • Kansas City, Missouri

Time spent traveling

  • Airplane: 5.5 hours
  • Regional Bus: 6 hours
  • Puget Sound Ferry: 1 hour
  • Car: 22 hours
  • Amtrak Train: 81 hours (not including delays)

I have no idea where I’m going next.
