Slugs: It is extremely rare that Slugs get any recognition or consideration as a viable form of commuting. That's why I am excited about the new partnership with Effective August 1st, is partnering with Flexcar, the nationís premier car sharing program, to address two of the possible weaknesses of slugging: what if I need a car during the day, and how do I get home if I work late?

Why am I endorsing FlexCar? Well, because I really believe it is a perfect fit for Sluggers and it can make Slugging even better. What FlexCar does for slugs is provide us with a sort of "get home insurance." Slugging is great and has saved me literally thousands of dollars in commuting cost, but I have gotten stranded twice when I had to work very late. I had two choices: sleep at the office or call the spouse. I chose the latter but then the kids had to be loaded in the car...a real pain for the whole family. If I had known and become a member of FlexCar that would not have been a problem.

Another advantage is no monthly membership fees. Aside from just getting to work faster and easier, I slug because I'm pretty much a tight wade. I like saving money but I also don't want to get stranded either. The $20 one-time membership fee ($5 discount for Slug) was, what I thought, a perfect fit for thrifty slugs.

Anyway, I wanted to get the word out on FlexCar. You can see more information at:
