Hey every one first time to this. your probably wondering about the subject line. lol I know seems odd. Here's the thing I was talking with my husband the other day about all the crazy crap going on in the world right now . He had a typical mind frame " well if its all going to hell I'm going camping!" lol So I rambled on about all my ideas on how to save the world, and as always I told him if you want to solve the worlds problems as a truck driver! lol ( that's how we met I drove truck for 10 plus years in the oil patch until I had kids) now we have our own truck and he getting to drive I get live vicariously through his trips. I still find myself still drifting in to thought when I hear something on the news or talking with friends. most of the time it starts with if I won the lottery id do ……. Id love to here some of your thoughts on it. how would you solve a random problem in the world? My big one is our food. everything is so GMO and our soil is lacking in so many nutrients that Id like to open a massive green house/hot house to grown healthier vegies and local fruits. id like to pay really well have transport service for those who need it on site daycare for people with littles who need extra help. even maybe be able to teach them a new skill if they are new to the work force. single parents and the like. like I said it normaly starts with... if I won the lottery! :-)

That would be some massively expensive fruits and veggies, sounds like to me.

But who knows? do that and sell to high end restaurants that only want exceptional quality, along with some high income customers and it might work.

Or maybe very well thought out farms. YouTube"Never Sink farms" They seem to do pretty well for a small farm.

I've been looking for some land for Black Walnut and pecans here in SC.

Ain't that the truth! The minute you stamp organic on anything, the price soars. You can buy a burger, fries & soda for less than 10 bucks. In NYC, a salad can run close to 20 bucks.

My daughter grows her own veggies & herbs. Plus she works for a grower in Florida. As far as saving the world with winning the lottery for me? It's also about hunger & organic food but I'd follow the quote that says, think globally but act locally. Giving folks the tools to be their providers rather giving handouts.

I have a bunch on the wood pile at the house and at the cabin.

It would probably be a felony if I brought any into the Peoples Republic of California, though.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

I just started trucking and until now have farmed and continue to since the early 80's. As far as non GMO and organic they are just terms that really mean nothing in the real world as far as feeding it. Since every food you eat has been "genetically modified" whether it is massed produced or grown in your garden, and if trying to grow all our food organically the world would starve because of lack of production. Just my little rant to those who think non-GMO and organic is the way all our food should be grown.
