    My access to transportation has definitely shifted throughout my life. In my younger years, I primarily got around (to school or friend's houses or downtown) by walking through my small town. My family drove to get around the state, because there is no public transportation through Vermont. When I moved to the Midwest and got my own license,...

    I'm so thrilled that I got to be a part of this challenge.  I've loved being surrounded by this supportive community that I haven't quite seen exist anywhere else on the internet world.  Here is to the future, may we continue to be stewards of the land.
