Okay, so here's the deal: We're still in the throes of working out the details of our decision to go carless. So far, so good, but it has made some changes in how we do stuff. We find we do a lot more shopping locally (within walking distance. . . not that we didn't before) because we are forced to be aware of the cost of transit. We also have been ordering a lot of stuff on the internet that we would have otherwise driven about shopping for. One of the more interesting effects has been on our propane/butane usage. While we do some of our cooking on the woodstove, we also use our little Gas One dual fuel stovetop for a lot of stuff. The trouble is, fetching propane or butane for the stove is no longer as convenient as it was with the car, entailing, at the very closest, hiking up to Target to get gas bottles and then carrying them back. Then there's the irritating and very UNecological disposal of the empty, non-refillable, and non-recyclable containers.

|Here's where she'll sit. In coming days I'll build an enclosure and seat to cover.|
|The installation had the added plus of freeing up counterspace from the hose and bottle.|
