It was a combination of things, and that is why I revealed that there were money problems. I have been looking for something to do to help the environment, and this perfect storm of events allowed me to say goodbye and make a bigger impact.
I may not have gone car-less, but if I had the money I would have found something better for the environment. The Philippines doesn’t have too many electric cars yet, but they are just around the corner as a few Asian countries are ready to release them.
This move wasn’t totally selfless as I did have another reason for getting rid of my car, but the final decision was made to send it back because we wanted to help the environment. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Believe it or not, we had a list of pros and cons on a whiteboard.
Would I get another car if I could afford it? I may one day. Hopefully, by the time I’m ready, electric will a reality, but if not I may settle for a smaller, more efficient car that I only drive when absolutely needed.
Thankfully, we have transportation options, so a car is not a necessity here, but if I were back in America, in Tucson, I would need one because there is very little public transport.
Anyway, take that how you will.
