Who’s in my sidecar

Sidekicks and Sidecars

Who frequents your sidecar?

Hi Laurie

Ailsa is my sidekick for long distance travel, though she has been doing more by herself than in my company recently, with 7 hours each way to visit her mum. I’ve been too committed here to go with her often – though I am planning doing the next trip with her.

We tend to cover a few miles. Have probably done close to 200,000 miles together, on various trips. New Zealand is an Island nation, but it is a thousand miles from one end to the other, and try and get around both Islands once a year (visiting all our clients), and sometimes we miss a year. Then it is a 9 hour drive to our little farm, and 2.3 hours to the nearest city, which we can sometimes do several times a week. So it adds up over time.

Ailsa just called me from the top of a mountain that is a 3 hour drive then a 4 hour hike to get to the top of – she went with our neighbour Bev, and will be back tomorrow night.

If Ailsa isn’t with me, I often pick up hitch-hikers.

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money
