I like the swimming idea too, much like the previous poster, I need less demand on fuel so that my 9 miles per gallon truck has cheap gas to fill it bowels.

"Someone should tell the US that."

oh, good point, jj. we should take a three-day train trip from the east coast to the west instead of a five-hour plane ride.

but trains aren't environmentally friendly, either. the energy that powers the train must be produced somewhere. perhaps we should just go back to the covered wagon -- but that would be cruel to animals.

how about a two-month bike ride across the country?

Hello jj,

Your statement about trains was so emphatic I am interested in your sources. What data do you base your certainty on?

I would agree that rail travel is cheapest for freight as cargo but I suspect that passengers as cargo is a different story.

How about horseback? No jet fuel or electricity required, AND your mode of transport produces fertilizer!
