Welcome to the Food Desert. I hope you like your stay.

Know that you know what you're up against let me suggest something that I'm not seeing on here. Hour Car/Zip Car or other car rentals. Chris Balish suggests that you rent a car of some kind and do a major shop at Costco once a month and that you supplement that with smaller everyday trips for perishables while you're already out and about.

Another thought would be to ride share out there. You could search craigslist, ask the neighbors or form a grocery shopping club.

Good Luck!

I thought you were going to talk about something else, which is how public planning currently values free parking above pretty much everything else. It's really shaped how cities sprawl. There's a whole book about it.

Hands: These ATV mitts were $13 when I ordered them, they are out of stock but I'm sure you can find comparable for a similar price. I would usually wear a light pair of gloves under these mitts.

Legs: I found just using a cheap pair of rain pants over my other layers added a lot of extra protection, that is easy to remove if you get hot or when you arrive, without removing boots.

Face: On very cold days I would use a scarf around my face with a balaclava under. I bought ski goggles used.

I still own a car, but I live in the downtown area of Seattle and I've recently started biking a lot of places after my bike sat in my apartment for 2 years. It's been great, I no longer feel guilty about not going to the gym, and I don't have to buy almost any gas for my car. Also, I can get places a lot quicker than driving (and looking for parking in the city) or oftentimes even taking the bus. I bought a bike rack and some baskets and now I can go to the grocery store and carry everything home on my bike, even gallons of milk. It's great.

I don't have a suggested water bottle holder, but this travel mug fits in all the standard water bottle holders I've tried: Great bike commuting coffee cup.

That is actually something my panniers are good at, they are not plain rectangular, but they are shaped so that my heels wouldnt kick into them. That is good for my requirements list for my market research in pannier bags.

Something else that I have considered is this, combined with a mesh net equipped with hooks that I can use to cover the basket and hold things from bouncing out.

These people complaining about removing of the minimum parking requirement have provided no evidence to support their case. Whereas a plethora of literature exists to support the removal of parking requirements. Most notably Donald Shoup's book. Parking is expensive and often wasteful. Let the free market decide how much parking should exist and what the price should be. It's bogus that non car drivers have to subsidize parking lots.

There are definitely some statistics and figures in this book. It's available in paperback or Kindle, since it seems you have only a few days to prepare.

My buddy had a similar problem, he also had a large dog to take around. His solution was to get a bike trailer like this. He said it worked good for hauling the dog/groceries/music gear around.

I haven't owned a car in 7 years, so I get everything he's talking about... except why he avoids gaining the skill.

The panic he cites is purely a function of unfamiliarity. If he spent some free time playing Grand Theft Auto with a steering wheel and pedals, he would quickly gain the comfort and instincts necessary to drive.

If he wants to remain car-free (or even license-free), that's one thing, but it's kind of silly for an adult to avoid such a useful skill out of fear when there are effective simulators in practically every living room. You'd think he'd want to at least know how to do it in case of an emergency.
