Riding the Bus With My Lovely

Once a year I take a trek to see folks in Montana via the bus. It is always an adventure. The first year I even wrote a poem about it that you can read, Riding the Bus With Jesus.

This year I am riding the bus with my lovely.

This is the first blog post I have made while riding the bus. The new Greyhound buses have
on-board WIFI.

Of course, bus travel is one of the greenest ways to go:

Greyhound is proud to be one of the most environmentally efficient travel operators in Australia. Studies have shown that per passenger kilometre coaches use almost 8 times less CO2 emissions than jet aircraft, and for every full coach, there are 16 fewer cars on the road.
If it is good for Australia it is probably good for the U.S. too.

In a low energy future, the bus will be way more and more of us get around. I kind of like it.
