Figuring it all out

Between Google Earth, a couple letting websites, three or four travel sites, and good friends in the UK, I think we are beginning to figure out where and how we are going to land this fall. The big decision seems to be between trying to make our life livable without a car or just punting and getting one. The suburbs of anywhere have this problem, but Milton Keynes more so than the other places we are looking at seems to have a good series of bus lines. But the more I look at it, the more it seems like Gurnee, with the big shopping mall and urban sprawl. Lots of bike paths though and I think we might be able to swing at least a short time without one. But the 16th or 17th of September is looking to be our ticket out.
