Creative solutions to costly school commutes.
Taking an old-fashioned approach to avoiding high fuel prices, Mellissa Evans and Chapa Stevenson recently started riding their horses to classes at Tooele, Utah's Tooele High, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. After officials informed them that horses aren't allowed on campus, Evans said, "I guess we have to go back to carpooling."
Meanwhile, a convoy of students in Castleford, Idaho, recently showed up at Castleford School driving all manner of farm implements to mark Drive Your Tractor to School Day, the Twin Falls Times-News reports. In addition to seven tractors, the parade included a big combine and an old skid-steer loader. The combine driver said his dad had authorized the trip, "As long as I don't bend the auger."
