The Alan Durning family goes Car-less in Seattle.
Interesting experiment. It's not my cup of tea at all but they definitely have the makings of a book....maybe a significant one.
All I ask is that they don't pull punches. Don't make their recounting of the experience a political tract about how much happier they are and how the world is so much better because they don't have a car. In other words, tell the truth. Tell us the good and the bad. Don't let the desire to have a car-free world write each sentence. Let the chips fall where they may. Tell us when they miss the car, too.
They should do this for a year, at least. Keep a good diary etc etc...I'd even suggest a blog, with each family-member posting, but I'd be concerned they'd become so wedded to the image of being a cool car-free family that they would lose their credibility.
The good news is that whatever they do, they won't be able to fake it.
