My family fits this trend in more than one way.
1. We sold a 4,000 square footer in CA that has since declined by 400K in value.
2. We want to walk everywhere and live in a 90% walkable location in CO.
3. My gen Y kids are the same. One lives in Union County New Jersey, car-less. Another would live in Europe if she could, car-less. The third joined the Navy, to be car-less.
joined the navy specifically TO BE car-less? In this society, being car-less is a significant empediment being a full citizen. Such situations make you dependent on the collective, and to the schedules of mass transit. Car-less is no way for an american to live.
