G-Day -51

I'm thinking this will take a bit less time than I thought. If I can stretch a tank for a good 5 weeks, I think I'd be doing pretty well. IF I went absolutley nuts, I might get a bit more, but I do have to admit the following:

There's at least one or two 40-50 mile trips to D-A Scout ranch for the Cub Scout fishing derby and one or two other 20+milers for scouts.

I can try to work in summer programs into the plan. If the kids find stuff that is close to the house, that would be better, but I'd sacrifice most things for a really good summer scientist program or something like that.

Time will be an issue. I have the unbridled luxury of working from home, but swim lessons and things like that may not always be under bike friendly conditions. But I will always try to combine trips, and trips to the Farmer's Market (about 20 miles round trip) will be used as needed.

More to follow...

Hey, and here it is.

I've been flogging this address at folks who I've written to before. Several authors who's books and other work I admire, the Top Gear lads (hey, I love cars but just want to save some cash), most of my friends and the like. I've heard back from some folks, and have had one suggestion to try and start a movement. I don't know about that, but who knows, maybe I can find myself vilified on talk radio and parodied on Colbert.
