Hatch Cover Art!

Hatch Cover Art!

I was walking around Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood one day and happened to notice that several hatch covers had very intricate designs.  Apparently, the City of Seattle has actually commissioned several artists over the years to design “hatch cover art” and these can be found in neighborhoods all over the city.  Some even have street […]

Going Greyhound

Undriver Steve Verhey commutes weekly by Greyhound from Ellensburg to Olympia and back.  Here’s a recent “Woulda Missed This If Driving” dispatch:  Last night a skinny, pale guy wearing a T-shirt, light sweat pants, and Converse-like shoes got on the Greyhound bus at Olympia. He was carrying a paper bag just larger than lunch-sack size. […]

Three boxes, Four hands

Three boxes, Four hands

I met these two out walking their big boxes of computer equipment in downtown Vancouver BC. Who says you need a car to get a bunch of heavy stuff from Point A to Point B?  Woulda missed this if driving! -Julia Field

Freeway Goats

Freeway Goats

Earlier this week, part of the land under the freeway at I-5 and 40th street in Wallingford was wrapped in chain link fencing. The whole lot was covered in blackberry brambles so wrapping it seemed kind of silly, but I thought maybe they were sick of the local homeless people using it as sleeping quarters […]

Books by Bike!

Books by Bike!

Spotted this in my ‘hood – someone stopped off after a library visit for an errand downtown. Love those high-capacity bike baskets! Delivered home by bike, this stack-of-books is just a little light reading…. Woulda missed this if driving! -Julia Field   Support Undriving: October is Undrive-a-thon Month!  Make a donation of any size and […]

The Undriver Licensing Station™ visited Tilden School in West Seattle on Sept 30!  Ms. Karin’s 5th grade class is focusing on environmental education this month, and making an Undriving pledge gave the students a great opportunity to see how their daily actions affect the whole planet. Here’s a sample of the great Undriving pledges the […]

City Garden Fungi

City Garden Fungi

On a whim, I decided to take a short detour through a p-patch (community garden) while running errands on foot in my neighborhood last week.  And what did I find there?  TOADSTOOLS! [Folks, these are NOT edible!]  I found  hundreds of them growing in clusters and rings, dotting the tomato patch, and hiding behind onion […]

Undriving the Undriver Licensing Station

True confessions: Undriving to Undriving events is a challenge we don’t always accomplish.  (Making the Undriver Licensing Station™ more portable is one of our many works-in-progress!)  However, for Moving Planet Seattle on Sept. 24th, we were determined – so Natacha and I bused it, then hoofed it, with all the stuff pictured here. When you […]

No fish on the bus!

It actually is Metro Transit policy to refuse riders carrying articles emitting “odors which unreasonably disturb others.”  Local Seattle bus and bike advocate & blogger, ChaCha AlaMode, recounts her bus ride with a very determined fisherman who had devised a way to sneak his daily catch past the driver:  “One Saturday afternoon, several years ago, […]

sidewalk…. lost?

  How does a sidewalk get lost? This sign got annotated with one of the many political musings that I often stumble upon whilst Undriving in the Capitol Hill neighborhood:  “Sidewalk lost… to the violent cacophony of another nail in the coffin of Capitol Hill”.  Woulda missed this if driving! -Mel   Support Undriving: October […]
