Waste Not Want Not

 I'm reminded today about the little things people waste.  I am walking back from repairing fence on my middle pasture.  I needed a tool I did not take with me.  I left my tractor and truck out next to the fence to walk 1200 feet.  I know people that would never even walk 200 feet.  Many around where I live own John Deere Gators that they drive from the house to the mail box, or out to check the cow's water.  They may log 800 feet in a day.  I consider this a great waste.  I was thinking, by not taking my tractor or truck back to the house, I'm saving diesel fuel, wear and tear, and my health.  Over 5 or 10 years this could add up in the thousands of dollars saved, not to mention the reduction in envirenmental impact.

also the exercise from distance walked. keep it up. if everyone did their part, it wouldn't take much from each of us.
