OK, I know I'm running behind but please forgive me, things have been truly nuts. This months site of the month was supplied by a blog reader named Kathleen (thanks Kathleen!) who sent Gettin' Around my way.

I don't talk a lot about transpo on this site but anyone who knows anything about internal combustion engines knows that in the waste department, they are king! So enter Gettin' Around. Self described as "one couples personal challenge to find and use alternative transportation in the Pacific Northwest" it's a pretty cool site.
Basically, they decided to try and shun "standard" forms of transportation for transpo that was a little lighter on the ole carbon footprint-o-meter, namely biking. Every week they report how many miles they have gone on bike, bus, and walked, and then what the costs were versus driving, gas saved, etc, to really give you a full idea of what they have accomplished (or not).
I like what they are up to because, quite like me, they seem like to regular folks (well maybe not like me then) who just figured there must be a better way, and then set out to do it. Very cool if you ask me.
So head on over to Gettin'Around and see what they're up to.
