Well the news today is that the US is imposing mileage standards that should put a dent in whatever little business the car dealers have.
What are they going to do with all that inventory?
Getting good mileage should not be a problem, after all in our last vacation to Europe the Mercedes we rented about 4 years ago was getting 45 miles to the gallon.
In North America the same Mercedes model gets 24.
I wonder why?
So how do you get a vehicle that we hall animal feed, lumber, gravel and other stuff that requires some semblance of power to run at a low mileage?
I guess someone well tell us.
We can use a bicycle to go down hill to Patzcuaro, but up hill with a load of carnitas, tortillas and milk, will a tad more difficult.
Maybe I can find one of those old Volkswagen Beetles, the ones from the 60's
Or better yet, just on old nag. That is the epitome of efficiency. You go to town on it, gets decent mileage, as a byproduct you get decent fertilizer, the only drawback is it will be ahalf a days journey to trek 30 kilometers there and back.
Morelia will be a full day, if you get started real early...
Back to the old days. Basics and lots of time.
A burro is not any faster although cheaper.
If all else fails I can do what the enterprising individual did in the picture.
