Player 2


You are 25 years old and work at an office in Boulder. It is a 9 to 5 job, leaving some opportunity for shopping or other things after work.

Your spouse works in Denver and usually takes the only car you own as a couple, and works late hours so you often do the grocery shopping. When you need the car, this forces her/him to leave very early as the trip to work takes over an hour requiring several bus transfers. This is the reason why you seldom use the car.

Since she/he works late hours you often do the grocery shopping. Luckily the bus route is in acceptable distance to your home. But if you have been to the groceries and bring bags, it is a long walk and you’d wish the bus stop was closer to your home. In winter you hate walking to and waiting for the bus, or when you stay in town to meet with friends, walking in the dark is just a bit spooky.

On this map there is an X on the spot where you live.
