Tomorrow I embark on an adventure that can only be described as “the salvation of Mother Earth through prudent fuel selection”.  In fact, I will not be changing the world in 6 days but I hope to shrink the carbon footprint just a little bit, starting with MountainFilm of Telluride 09.

One year ago, MountainFilm issued an environmental challenge to all its attendees.  Reducing my bottled water intake didn’t seem noteworthy enough for me so I figured I might do something a bit different and drive all 4,000 lbs. of digital gear to Telluride on a biodiesel truck route from New York City.  Along the way, I just might happen to catch a few baseball games;  it seems to be no coincidence that Cleveland, Chicago (Cubs), St. Louis and Kansas City are all at home as I pass through.  But I digress…

To follow my progress, simply return to blog.mountainfilm.org and check out my daily updates with text and photos.  I’m hoping to meet some great people, learn all about biodiesel and eat a hot dog at Wrigley.  The trip will be over 2200 miles and concludes Sunday in Telluride, Colorado at 9,000 vertical feet.  Wish me luck and safety and check out the blog every morning!
