I walk about an hour and a half during a full day’s commute, and I probably like walking more but I picked train. I spend closer to three hours on a train every day, and something about the train is really great. I see the same people every day, we drink together, share our work woes… It’s a good part of the day.
Car = freedom. Go where you want, and with caveats about traffic, when you want. Not tied to rails, or mass transit schedules and locations, or dealing with TSA security kabuki and cattle-car seating. Make it a 4x4 and extend your reach to many off the road locations.
