I’m going on vacation for a week or so, starting tonight. Somehow my father managed to retire just a month or so after YERT finished its travels, so now he’s taking the family on a boat ride in Maine. Fortunately, I’m considered family. 😉 I’ll be back soon, but in the meantime I hope that you can all enjoy your summers.
There have been plenty of things happening in YERT-land these days. We had a great Homecoming party at the Rachel Carson Homestead, complete with a donation of about 50 organic and fair trade chocolate bars by Theo Chocolate in Seattle. Needless to say we were wired. And we received a warm welcome to Pittsburgh, where I’ve since discovered so many green events in September that I’m not sure how I’ll ever sleep again!
YERT was also interviewed by Living on Earth a couple of days after the party, and they plan to run a YERT segment on their nationally syndicated show sometime in late September. We’ll let you know when to listen for it on the radio. If you’re looking for a good planetary radio program, I think that Living on Earth sets the bar.
We’re still working on videos, but it is taking longer than expected to turn them around in this post-road-tripping life. Nevertheless, we’re still hungry to process the footage and can’t wait to share it with you. It will come when it comes. Thanks for your patience…
Until September, YERTfully Yours,
P.S. I don’t mean to get political, but if you think that “drill here, drill now” is a good plan, send a note my way and I’ll be happy to share with you a few of the complications that arise from that “strategy.”
