you want to move out of the city. you don't drive, but you still want to make it into Toronto to party. and you're thinking about getting here by horse?
dude, this is ridiculous. take a bus.
It's only rediculous because nobody else does it.
I remember, when I was younger an still lived in Romania (a small eastern european country) we used to see the peasants ride into town in horse and buggies... Everyone else used to laugh at them...
Now, the same people that laughed at them slave away working for western companies to pay ungoldly prices for nike shoes and dreaming about one day having a mercedes, while they don't even have enough money to eat...
But the peasants... They still go around with horse and buggies... And I think they're way better off.
As for the bus... umm... no...
Busses are more expensive then cars.
If I''m supposed to pay at least 20 bucks for a return ticket, for a ride that I'm going to be doing several times a week... that comes to like 300 a month easy... That's like half of rent. It's not worth moving out then.
As for taking the horse downtown, or on the highway... Of course I wouldn't do that. It'd be cruel to the poor thing. Why would I drag an animal to the places that I dont like being.
on the other hand, down ride roads and into the suburbs... That's doable... If it's legal.
But hey... I forgot about the mennenites... I know some people that know mennanites... maybe I should ask them about the whole situation...
But yeah... The tractor thing is funny... In small towns, you'll see a bunch of tractors pulled up to the local pub... Cause they've all been busted for drunk driving, but you don't need a licsence to drive a tractor, so they drive to the bar with those.
Heh... Leave it to people's ingenuity
