“For awhile, I liked walking,” says Jed Hopkins, of Maryland Avenue NE. “But I noticed everybody does that around here. And if it’s one thing I’m not, it’s a joiner. So I went out and got a really big gas guzzler that’s 18-19 feet long. It’s hard to park. My Johnny-come-lately neighbors with the backyard chickens and windmill powered ipads throw me some mean-ass looks. And filling up my monster brings a grown man to his knees in pain. But dude, the majesty of the ride, the sound system, the way I can lay out and take a nap in this baby is awesome!”
