"Author lives for a year without car and finds a world of beauty on foot and bike"

Trevor (a friend of mine) shared this link with us.

This guy spent a year refraining from driving his car and flying in airplanes. Instead of relying on carbon-emitting transportation, he traveled by foot, bicycle, and sea kayak, always staying within a 100 mile radius of his home in Puget Sound. And he wrote a book about it..

"This much is clear to me. If I can’t change my own life in response to the greatest challenge now facing our human family, who can? And if I won’t make the effort to try, why should anyone else? So I’ve decided to start at home, and begin with myself. The question is no longer whether I must respond. The question is whether I can turn my response into an adventure."
