Re: Reason #53 - because I am Dutch.
It's kinda the same for me. Within a mile or so, I will probably walk (because a have about 50 extra pounds that I don't need and won't miss). Between one and ten miles, no sense in getting the minivan unless it's a family outing. When the new Tempus is up and running, I'll be going back to running errands with her.
