As I prepared to move to Hoboken, I had yard sales, house sales, garage sales, and I even sold my car. I had way too much stuff to fit in a city apartment, and in this part of the country, most people--me anyway--regard a car as a liability. I am not the world's best driver, and the way people drive in New Jersey I'd be an accident looking for a place to happen.
I have a friend who grew up in New Jersey and is well versed in the ways of driving here. His blog post on the subject has convinced me that I made the right decision to unload the little Saturn for the current phase of my trip through life. It had enough dings and dents in its short journey with me behind the wheel.
