Hi Mark,

My flight is scheduled to arrive at Missoula from Denver at 11:39 a.m.  I start out on the East Coast so I'll be travelling starting at 3:00 a.m. on Sunday.  If your flight gets in around the same time, or if you arrive earlier and are willing to wait, I'd be happy to share the ride.  Can't promise I'll have the energy to wait if your flight is later. :(

I posted this in the PDC/ATC thread but thought I'd post this here too:

I'm going to the ATC!!!  So I wanted to know if someone else who's going might be interested in sharing a room and car rental to cut costs and environmental impact.  I'm an older woman, quiet, and neat.  Would want another woman for a roommate.  I checked the closest accommodations and there's nothing available during those weeks.  So there's a place that's listed as "cheap and clean" in the instructional email that's about 8 miles away.  I checked this morning and there's still availability.  Don't want to go in to too many details here.  But if you're interested, please reach out to me and we'll see if we can work something out.

Cheers,
Dianne

Zero waste is good, but also managing things that are not waste—keeping them clean and organized, but also knowing how to sell/give something away in a manner that ensures it is well utilized (it is shockingly much easier to acquire things in the US today than to get rid of them!), where/how to donate vs. recycle so that donations don’t end up in a landfill or polluting some harbor in the third world or whatever....



I'm tagging and preparing my kids' outgrown clothes for a large local consignment sale.  The sale is twice a year to reflect the different seasons, and I use it as an opportunity to sort our clothing.  I price things very reasonably so they will sell to others who can make use of them.  I also shop these kinds of sales first.  Doing both supports the local community financially.  We still live in a small city (for my husband's job) and our community has a lot of poverty so there are plenty of families who rely on these sales to clothe their kids.  And it's a very Permie kind of thing because it keeps our house organized and is good for the earth.
