After I had finished one of the three sooking sessions while going through Perth last week and I wasn't the one driving!, Hubby said that it might be easier if I drove more often in areas that I didn't know and built up some confidence that way. He suggested that I just get in the van and drive. Anywhere. He may be right. BUT! I am in two minds. I want to live simply and frugally and do my bit to *save the world* Cutting down on petrol usage is a big part of that. I stay home more than anyone I know and driving just for the sake of it goes against how I think. But I do want to see more of the state I live in and I do want some *adventures*
I believe that I am a good driver but I see too many idiots on the roads and a couple of them have come quite close to hitting me. We won't mention that 1 time I nearly wiped someone out on that stupid roundabout The more often I am on the road then the more chances they will have.
This country is huge and I know that I will never come close to seeing it all but my little corner of the world? I'd like to see a lot more of that. And of course that means driving which means using petrol, or diesel in the case of Wanda. So maybe I should push my conscience aside for a year or two and get out there exploring while I can. Or I could just look at pictures on the web. You know, be a watcher and not a doer. That would save money, fossil fuel and tears.
So do I drive more and use more of the Worlds resource for no real good reason or do I stay home and just do a few one off trips to places I really want to see.
