I was torn between living in Vermont and Minneapolis for various reasons for about six years. During that time I flew every other month to Minneapolis for a week or so. I finally decided to move to Minneapolis because flying was not sustainable financially and environmentally. I have been here for over five years now.
I want to visit Vermont, and haven’t been back since I moved. I am planning on taking the train because I realize flying is not cool at this stage of the game. No one around me gets it, or if they do they don’t make significant sacrifices. I sold my car 1.5 years ago, now that I live in a city with excellent mass transportation.
