Hi Becca. Thank you so much for the support. It was a great trip and we really did appreciate the kind words and motivation from all sources along the way. Knowing people were spreading the word and pitching in on their own really made it worthwhile. Thank you for that. We made care packages for anyone that helped us along the way. Although the trip was two years ago, I still have one for you but never knew how to get it to you. Please e-mail me (davedesimone at gmail dot com) if you get this so I can give you a T-Shirt and DVD of the trip. I hope you've continued to travel and explore. All the best. -Dave D

Comment on Can you be a locavore? by Farmer Jess

Mon, 18 Apr 2011 18:23:06 +0000

Some people make built-in "loop holes" for concerns like coffee and still consider themselves to be locavores. If that helps more people make the move toward local eating, go for it! I hear a lot of other "locavores" making built-ins for spices, or for banannas for a special bananna cake or some other circumstance. The idea is to live in line with a philosophy of eating, not necessarily to be an ascetic. Idealogues and extremists spoil all kinds of good things for themselves and others. We find what works for us and can't tell anyone else how they "should" or "shouldn't" make their food decisions. I don't care too much one way or the other about banannas, but I make an allowance for responsibly-grown free-trade coffee. Life without coffee = a lot less fun :)

Hi Konrad 1. At the time, I think I used around $3.00 per gallon, considering I just paid $3.89 per gallon for my office building, I underestimated the value of my system. 2. In my area it would probably have minimal impact because we have high water tables and a lot of ledge. It may help. Though we don't have one, many of my neighbors suffer form wet basements. 3. I don't have excess water. 4. I had no concern for freezing it was designed by the installer and it was what he recommended. Thanks, Kim

Going green has to be one of the best things I'v done in quit some time. For those of you who may be on the fence, go ahead and join the family. No more guessing, no more what if, it is good for you and for the environment.

Kim, a couple of questions for Kim: what was the per gallon oil price you used in your calculations? any thoughts on what your use of well water would do to groundwater levels if all your neighbors had a similar system? why do you have excess water coming from your wells? wouldn't that be easy to control with a valve of some sort/pressure reducer? you apparantly opted for an "open loop" system as opposed to a recirculating system. Is that because you were concerned about the cooler return water eventually freezing the system? thanks for any help
