Sick of Corn

I’m hungry and I’m sick of corn right now.

hmmmm

Trying to do all sorts of things to take my mind off of the fact that Ben can eat almost anything. And the more we learn the more he can eat! I’ve eaten about 29 ears of corn since Thursday night. That’s not enough calories to fill me up, but there is so much sugar in the corn that I simply can’t eat too much of it at a time or my blood sugar levels go haywire. So I’m hungry. Fortunately, that’s pretty much the worst of it, and I’m looking forward to a fine feast of non-corn foods when we finish the Iowa segment of our trip tomorrow night. I’m looking forward to something salty and meaty. And maybe a salad with anything but corn in it…

Starved because I want to be, I guess,

  1. isnt Environmental Road Trip a contradiction in terms?
    more importantly, who is your audience? your family and 2 friends?
    this site is way too self referential (and self congratulatory).
    No one reads this!

  2. Dear Reality Check,

    Thanks for your comment. There are absolutely some contradictions in the phrase “Environmental Road Trip.” If I was medically fit to bike the whole way, we’d probably be doing that instead of driving. And so if we can’t bike, why should we do the trip at all? I believe that there is something to be said for meeting people face-to-face and sharing ideas with them, both on and off the camera. There is only so much community that you can build via e-mail and phone-based communication, and the environmental movement could certainly use some community building. As a result, much of what we’re trying to do involves a public form of “cross-pollination” of thoughts and ideas across states and people who might not ordinarily meet or speak in day-to-day life.

    Our audience continues to grow, but did indeed begin with family and friends– our most supportive community. We are working to branch out with videos, blog entries, and other ways of connecting with a broader audience. We hope to ultimately reach people who are curious to know more about the eco-trends underway, but who are too busy to explore sustainability at length on their own. This group likely includes young parents and professionals between the ages of 20 and 45, but we’re open to change and to finding additional audiences as they make themselves known to us.

    If you have suggestions for improvement, including ways that we can improve our appeal to you, we’d love to know.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Mark
