Traveled to Pennsylvania yesterday for work. Second time in two weeks. We were attending a "Lessons Learned" meeting for a project we're evaluating. It was held at a retreat center located way up on the top of a mountain. Getting there was a challenge, because when the road turns into a private road, there's nothing to tell you to keep going. But eventually someone else came up behind us and told us that we were on the right track, and after going up up up the gravel road, we came to the retreat center on top. And were rewarded with this incredible view! (2 more pictures are in my Scrapbook Gallery.)

But the title of this post actually comes from what happened on the way home. Flying from Harrisburg to Pennsylvania I struck up a conversation with my seat mate. The usual where are you going, where have you been. What do you do for work? He works in solar, so we start talking about that, I'm asking about some things I learned at Green Industrialization conference I attended. And I mention cohousing, as a preamble to telling him about the solar hot water heaters we have installed.

"Cohousing?" he says. "No way." Turns out that he was part of a group for 5 years, but they never found land and then things happened. It was in Vermont, he says. "You wouldn't by any chance know [livejournal.com profile] folkmew and her husband Ed?" I ask. And of course, he does - they were members of the same cohousing group, Wild Onion Cohousing.

So then we spent the rest of the trip talking about cohousing, as he was very curious about how it was actually working out for us. Very cool, and certainly made the (already short) flight time fly by!

So [livejournal.com profile] folkmew - Tom says Hi!
