Decided to jump on the bandwagon and share my oil shock documentation and thriving strategies via LiveJournal. I admit I hadn't been too concerned about our oil dependency pre-shock, but volunteered to help track Netizen efforts out of a desire to help people be proactive about something. The longer this crisis has gone on, the more I realize it's necessary for me to be proactive, too, duh--not just help *you* guys with your efforts. Consequently my life has changed dramatically--for the better, I think. So this journal will help me track those changes.
