Catching a train to the east coast tomorrow.
Train Facts via the Association of American Railroads:
-Each freight train can move one ton of freight 453 miles on one single gallon of diesel fuel.
-If 10% of long haul freight now moving buy truck moved by rail, annual greenhouse gas emissions would fall by more than 12 million tons.
-American railroads move 40% of our nations freight but account for just 2.2% of all transportation related greenhouse gas emissions and just .6% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
Been tryin to flow - yes - flow. wrote myself a little diddy:
My name is Abbie and Im here to say
Don't wait to live until your old and grey.
Leave the things behind that hold you down
So at the end of the day your face won't frown.
Give up your cable, give up your iPhone
So you don't miss the places the sun has shown.
Stop staring at a screen that makes your eyes melt
And go out and experience things youve never felt.
I know its scary and I know its new
but shit, baby, that cubical live just ain't for you.
a lot of products to make your hair shine
But you could just buy veggies from a friend of mine.
And don't get me started on your silly spry tan,
Just go out and grow some tomatoes to can.
It ain't as hard as you seem to think
To live a live you love and watch your waist shrink.
So go - stop your talking,
Put on your shoes and just start walking.
All yall in Philly - hit me up. I look forward to connecting with you.
