Greetings Skeptics Applicants (and skeptical skeptics applicants)! I'm sitting on the 18th floor of my hotel in New York City. I can see the Empire State Building from my vantage point. My wife and I are visiting the Big Apple to celebrate the wedding of two great friends. I'm super excited to try out the transit system today. Last night we rolled in on a bus that left right from Rosslyn and dropped us off a block from our hotel. We put our legs to good use and walked up to Times Square for a late dinner.
As we braved the chilly temps we strolled back to our hotel but found ourselves outside of the Empire State Building entrance. "Why not?!" we said! So super helpful TIP: go visit this great landmark late at night. We literally had no line to contend with.
It's hard to imagine a year has flown by already since I submitted my application for the Car-Free Diet Skeptics Challenge. I was (here it comes) skeptical that my video would even come together in time to apply. And even then - I didn't know if I would be one of the two selected skeptics. It really was (and continues to be) an experience like no other. Since the challenge began in April last year I've gone from a regular single occupant commuter crawling on 66 each day to a transit/bike wiz. The transit system feels like second nature to me and I'm a much more confident cyclist. My wallet seems to be a little more full and my waistline isn't so big anymore.
So it's the last weekend before those applications are due and I'm challenging you to join me and CarFree Ross to become the next Car-Free Diet Skeptic. Sign up by Monday, February 28th at carfreedietskeptics.com
I'm off to a wedding brunch in NYC. Don't be jealous!
