Levine Family Undriving highlights from week three: Daily walking trips to Ballard for groceries and other errands.  More walking = more Newmans Ginger O’s with whole milk! After 15 miles of biking to appointments on Wednesday, I discovered that my recently adjusted brake pads are rubbing.  Extra effort = more Ginger O’s??? Discovering Metro’s recently […]

Day 16:  Sun. Oct. 16th Today we kept things local by undriving the 5 blocks down to our local park. Beija, not to be outdone by her fashionisto father, donned a vast array of sweaters (2!) and stripes.

Day 15:  Sat. Oct. 15th Today we reprised last October’s bus trip to my sister’s house in Lynnwood.  And whoa, cue weird music, turns out we did it on day 15 of both car-fasts! http://30dayscarfree.posterous.com/day-15-lynnwood-or-bust Just a few variances in this year’s 28 mile round trip.  Topping the list would be Beija’s method of transport.  Bye […]

Day 8:  Sat. Oct. 8th Undrive-a-thon or no, we always do a lot of walking, biking and busing back and forth between our house and the surrounding neighborhoods of Ballard, Fremont, Phinney and Greenwood. So what we really love about our car-fast is that it pushes us to explore destinations that in other months would […]

Today, nothing happened.  Okay, a lot happened, but the moment we were waiting for came around 6:03pm when Mike returned home after a week long trip to California.  After disembarking from Metro, Beija promptly greeted her dad with a warm hello and then insisted on portering his luggage up the hill. That’s our little helper!

I stopped by the Ballard Market on my bike commute home this afternoon and took a quick pic of the cool ride I parked next to.  As luck would have it, I ended up meeting the owner on the way out. The owner, Ben, turned out to be an affable New Yorker now living in […]

Day 5: Wed. Oct. 5th Always good to start the day off with a hearty breakfast before biking to meetings. The only delta between Beija’s breakfast and  mine?  One less egg.  You go little go girl!   Day 4: Tues. Oct. 4th Took a short break from Undrive-a-thon logistics to stroll around the neighborhood with […]

Day one, like many days of late, was all about the home office. I’ve spent the last few months intermittently working on the Undrive-a-thon and the last two weeks nearly solidly on the phone or at the computer. And this morning, as I was double checking the last bits and bobs on all the participants’ […]
