Just out of curiosity, do vehicle miles include the subway?

Hey, welcome back! I was wondering who had kidnapped you...now I see it was your wonderful family!

I love walking in Chicago. It's truly a beautiful city!

Loved walking along Lake Shore Drive with Bob when we were students at Moody.

When I lived in Manhattan, N. Y. and worked in NJ I had to do alot of walking to get to the subway. Except for a drunk trying to grap my arm one time, it was fun walking. (I was only 19, so I was a little scared but just kept walking.)

It is something I need to do a lot more of.
