Default why drive

Now somehow I missed this thread before... but if I can order it online and shipping cost is reasonable... order online.. why? because to drive anywhere to buy anything is more than 50 miles for me round trip. Those are small towns.. and don't have selection. To get selection and upscale you have to drive 100 miles, or 200 round trip.

I think if I lived in a large metro area.. it may be different... but we order from those areas now because it is costly to go there.

I hope one day to be back in a small town and with the Internet I'll still be able to order whatever I need.

Exactly. The internet is the Sears & Roebuck catalog of the fifties.
