How to get to work with no gas, no bike, no bus

Per this TV story, West Seattleite Tom Milne kayaks to work – 13 miles each way. Sounds like he saw the same humpback JoB reported in the WSB Forums the other day. P.S. Kayakers and would-be kayakers may want to check out the annual Eddyline Demo Day this Saturday at Alki Kayak Tours at Seacrest (9 am-3 pm)

  1. i walk 4 miles to work. no gas, no bike, no bus…although no one cares about those of us that walk.

    maybe if i had some sort of boat like structure, i can get into the news too

  2. I walk every day,6 days a week. Maybe I could walk on my hands,drinking Starbucks, whistlin’ Dixie. Naaah. I couldn’t. Don’t want to be in the news anyway. But walking is good though…

  3. Anybody who walks to work, have somebody snap a pic of you setting out. We’ll publish it! Good point that you should be celebrated too. Or biking to work. Or standing at the bus stop.

  5. I don’t know why this struck me as funny, because, yes, walkers should be celebrated for saving fuel..and for doing what they do for their own bodies. I walk to work, too…but my walk is different…bed to bathroom to kitchen to computer to massage room…all within about 25 feet or so of each other…not exactly news worthy…but that’s what struck me as funny. A shame more can’t work from home like me…it’s great :)

    I commend all walkers for doing it…and I saw the piece on T last night on King 5…long way to kayac, but definitely an interesting ride…
