    Ian, I had read where their is enough of fossil fuel in this country alone to last another 4 to 500 years. Back way back, it was said, we would run out of oil in 30 years, that was said, I think, in the 30's. More oil will be found. I think you underestimate the size of the US, and the distance between home and work for most. Not everyone lives in a place like London where all transportation is available and to ride in a bike in remote areas here, or rural areas here is a joke Ian. You would be peddling your butt off for hours and be too tired to work! To excerise is one thing to be foolish is another. One way people could cut back is on mowing the lawns, but, then you got to remember that their are negatives things in doing that! I wait for the day, one person has all the answers to important things in life, but that isn't going to happen. It takes many people everywhere to think, to figure things out, to find answers, and one thing, all most do is to remember one thing, that circumstances must be weighed in. You are giving answers to us, in the US, like our country is like yours. Not so. The answers cannot be the same for the factors are not. It is like doing an equation=the state of being equal.

    Dust your erasers, wipe the chalkboard and start all over again. This time, use all the information you know, the sizes of the countries, do a math proof, and remember Ian,
    quod erat demonstrandum. ( which was to be shown)

    Want a small vardo or gypsy wagon? We build those in off times. If I can find a photo of the finished version, I'll post it.

    This one finished with a copper roof and fantastic detailing inside. It has over 25,000 miles on it now, and no cracks yet. DMV tax of about 150$ a year.

    I did not know you were a traveller Ballvalve. Nice home. And a great mountain too.

    Oh, that is funny. I could put one of those "fortune teller" things in it, and charge while it is sitting in my rellies driveway, I would love that.

    Neat! I'd like one, but I don't think my neighbors would. I it hurricane proof? Will it float on flooded rivers?

    Love to travel, but a bit lighter for me - that was built for a customer. They are writing a book on their trip, where you can imagine they had lines of people wanting to have a look.

    Its quite light and tows easy, not like those beastly tiny houses with peaked roofs at crazy prices in cookies link.

    They claim they got 12 to 16 mpg - I think it weighed in at 3500 pounds.

    Try to find this on the east coast! Sand dunes adjacent to the very few terminal fresh water desert lakes in the world.

    No trailer for me, need a jeep to get here... And notice that a jeep can get 2000+ MPG on a downhill run with the engine off.

    Prius take note. Made in the USA too. Bring lots of water and wine.

    That platform seems to be a remnant of WW2 watchtowers when the Japs were expected to bomb our largest munitions factory on earth nearby. As to taxes, you can build on the water and pay less than 1/2% of value.

    And Ghost towns around here like gas stations in DC.
