I was thinking about the 5 year birthday of EM and the affect that it has had.
I've not really posted in a long time although I still lurk. I've never been much of a "modder" but have had some success at eco-driving. The ripples of Ben and Darins brainchild has made a pretty big impact on me and those around me.
Like most, I suspect, I started the adventure due to gas prices. Everyone thought I was nuts. The neighbors called me the "mad scientist" due to the things I was messing with. Long story short. I went from not even being aware of energy to a Car-ectomy. Heck, for over a year I was riding a bike on my 52 mile commute.
Now it kind of come 180 degrees from where it began. Now energy impact is the first thing I think about form cars, home and food, etc. It also has trickled down to family, friends and neighbors. They might not go all about but at least they are thinking.....
Your never know what ripples your actions will cause.
