Put this in your environmental pipe...

This is the height of cool. I ran to Liz's house today with Olivia and Anwyn in the front chariot (www.chariotcarriers.com),which is mine. I picked up Anthony and Eric in the rear chariot with Liz's hiking "backpack" attachment.
3.1 km, a distance which normally takes me 15-17 minutes in the summer, took me about 25 minutes (not counting the bitching and complaining). That's not much better than a fast walk. But, I expect that as I get used to the gear, the load, and the snow disappears in the spring that I should be able to significantly improve on this initial time.
