Hi! My name is Steve McFarland and my blog identity is traveler.  The ultimate purpose of this site is for posting information that assists individuals in adopting a more sustainable lifestyle that is healthier and better able to thrive in local and other markets.  Don’t be surprised if you find some information that will benefit you, as well. At least, hopefully, it makes some interesting reading.

I have done thousands of hours of research (usually my sources will not be documented) and share it freely with you as this is more of a practical blog space rather than an academic thesis. Each topic will need additional research by you for you to fully implement it to its maximum potential and, particularly, so you can adapt it to your local environment. Your host, traveler, will be posting regularly and welcomes comments and articles from around the world.

Having grown up on a farm, my perspective on sustainable living begins with what one person can do.  For the past 18 years my focus has been primarily on renewable energy projects.  It has become clear to me that improvements begin with small changes until cultural changes are implemented that will eventually affect communities and nations and continents.  Will you travel with me?

    Hi – really good website you have made. I enjoyed reading this posting. I did want to publish a remark to tell you that the design of this site is very aesthetically sweet. I used to be a graphic designer, now I am a copy editor in chief for a merchandising firm. I have always enjoyed playing with computers and am trying to learn computer code in my free time (which there is never enough of lol).

  19. This is a good step to save paper. And will save the rain forests in Indonesia. Moreover, this will reduce the burden on the back of elementary school students. Of course this will make the traditional printing companies and governments in the third world into a panic because of their unpreparedness of information technology. . .
