Feel like moving?

Sharon Astyk has plenty of potential excuses to do so in an era of increasingly scarce fuel and water resources. The questions she's asking are ones that I and my wife have pondered considerably over the last couple years. I'm realizing increasingly that the struggles that we face as a family are symptomatic of a community that is itself not sustainable over the long haul. Back in 2008 we got to witness first-hand what a spike in fuel prices could do to the supply chain of a very isolated and long-neglected rural area. While we thankfully did not devolve into some sort of Mad Max scenario, we came just close enough for discomfort.
