Road Trip!

Tomorrow I leave for an epic environmentalist dream road trip with my mom. I'm excited to spend time with my mom and also to visit these awesome places.

We're gong to first travel down to the Shenandoah Valley to visit Joel Salatin's Polyface farm and go hiking. Then we'll come back north and visit an area hit by fracking and some of the farms that produce the food that ends up at the farmers' markets near me.

I'll be reporting all along and am even going to try to make a short documentary about my mom's reaction to discovering fracking - and on the trip all together.

It's been a while since i've written and i'm excited to get going on the blog again!
