I don’t think there’s a more pleasant way to commute than afoot.
Maybe that’s why folks who do it tend to be less stressed and more productive.
I’ve been able to do it regularly a few times in my life. It was worth every extra dime I paid for housing, only in part because I’m certain it improved my professional effectiveness.
This Friday morning, April 6, the Willamette Pedestrian Coalition is organizing Portland’s first Walk to Work Day to bring some local attention to the advantages of ambulatory commuting. People are meeting at four locations around town between 7 and 7:15 and converging at City Hall for some coffee and light breakfast. Looks like it’ll be over by 8:30 or so.
Sounds like a good time – if you can make it to one of the locations, RSVP here.
