I use the NASA spacescapes for my computer background.. it auto updates and uses real pictures from space, might I just say w o w.

I on the other hand am a Realtor. I have a BFA in communication design/ multimedia marketing.

I've been into ECO my whole life and have constantly done my little things to save the planet without turning into a vegan hippie that smells like patchouli. How you might be asking.. I don't use plastic bags at the grocery store for one (never have). I volunteer a couple of times a year for various things. One of the things I used to do but haven't in a couple of years is snorkel the local waterways and clean-out plastic bags and other debris from them. You'd be surprised how many I'd find. It is IMO our #1 wasted byproduct that can be 100% eliminated. I'll try to stay off my plastic bag soapbox here.. but that's just a hot-button for me. Now I'm off to save the planet one little step at a time... ok maybe not so much but I'll carpool to get there.

I've done several things over the course of my life so far, but the two
I've done the most are driving big trucks over-the-road and wrenching on airplanes.
At the moment, I'm preparing to enter school for a network administration diploma, just for a nice change of pace.

...and hopefully a little more family/hobby time.

I'm a senior in college, studying Environmental Information and Mapping. I just got a 2000 Chevy S-10 and am very interested in getting as much out each gallon as I can. I just joined in an effort to procrastinate further on my projects, and am very excited to read more of the forum once I get the chance to. Any tips for trucks?

Yes, don't use them unless you are hauling big loads.
