This Labor Day weekend Bill McKibben with the help of Greenpeace, Middlebury College, and Vermont activists organized a five-day walk from Robert Frost's old writing cabin in Ripton, Vermont to the Burlington waterfront. John Murphy (our senior sales sage) and I joined the event Sunday evening at Shelburne Farms, where we camped for the night before walking the last eight miles into Burlington yesterday.
Now if someone asked me to walk that far for almost any other reason I probably would have said no. But this walk, filled with delightful non-stop converstion with a wonderful community of caring Vermonters, was a delight. The event positively and hopefully addressed the most important issue of our time.
