    I love walking - a walk in the woods makes me feel better no matter what - Of course on a day like today I think Ill take Steve's advice and stay home and study up on some interesting environmental issues.   

  • Reflection Question
    Transport Use Muscle Power
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    Forgot to check in today but only drove when necessary - and not a lot.

    Looking forward to another day of conscious decision making and examining how our actions impact the world - and conversely, how our collective actions can make an impact too!

    Inspired by our community and its commitment to this challenge   - took a long walk in the woods yesterday and ate a vegetarian dinner yesterday and today.   Making a conscious effort to stop using paper towels.
