05-21-2007, 11:48 am (all times CST) (modified version of an E-Mail I sent to a friend)
      As the Green Apple concert season, UW Oshkosh Music Department and Student Recital concert season, and FCC Chancel Choir practice are over until Fall, and regular gas is $3.39/gal. in Oshkosh, WI, I have now switched into gas saving Summer mode, for the first time ever.

      The necessity of starting this log was the sticker shock resulting from the $178.16 gas credit card bill I just paid. That's unacceptable!

      Except for selected special concerts and festivals, all other musical events of any kind cost more in gas to get to than I care to spend until gas drops under $3.00 again, assuming that it ever does. I have no current plans of driving anywhere else this summer, except for my annual trip to the House on the Rock, date unknown at this time. To save on Motel bills I can't afford, I plan on sleeping in my Voyager over some music festival weekends.
    Additionally I plan on going to Fratello's occasionally, as it is the only venue within walking distance.

      Also, I probably will go to numerous Wednesday Noon Live at Lunch concerts downtown at Grand Opera House Square because I can take the City Bus there. Buses stop running at 6 pm, so I have no non-driving-my-own-car option to get to New Moon Cafe, Water City Grill, or Grand Opera House summer evening concerts. Other than the venues at UW Oshkosh shut down for the summer, these are the only non-smoking music venues in Oshkosh. In case you are wondering, I will also be taking the Bus to get my mail at the Post Office, the Appleton Post-Crescent on Thursdays, and grocery shopping.

      It is clearly evident that the primary resident of the White House, I forget what his name is (or at least wish I could), has no intention of doing a single thing to significantly affect global warming. Some things he could do, but never will do:

      Until all the above happens, and it is pretty evident that neither the White House nor the U.S. Congress will EVER do anything to really help the environment, it is up to every citizen of the world to cut back on gas, and the earth destroying pollution that results from using it, in every way possible, even if it hurts. Humanity's future depends on it. My severely limited summer concert/festival schedule is my small personal attempt at doing just that. In case you think my schedule is not limited, last summer (between 5-20 and 8-30-2006) I attended 39 musical events, and I drove to them all, and the environment suffered accordingly, I am sorry about that.


05-22-2007, 8:00 am (Tue) (first installed this page)
      I had a Oshkosh Philatelic Society meeting at Evergreen Manor last night. Before yesterday, I would have driven there. What the hey, it was only 20 minutes away by foot, so I walked there and back. Not much, but it's a start.
      I don't promise to log something here every day, only when the topic relates to the environment.
      My car hasn't moved since about 8 pm Sunday night (05-20-2007) when I got back from the FAMA Meeting/Jam/Open Mic.
05-22-2007 - Gas $3.42, filled up before it gets any higher. Hopefully, this tank will last awhile. (lasted until 6/11)
05-23-2007 - Senior's Center (free Dial-A-Ride ID card) / P.O. - $.75 bus fare - 0 mi. in car
      Being older than dirt does have some advantages, 1/2 price bus fare and eligible for "Dial-A-Ride" (City Cab fare $1.75 during bus hours, see "City Bus" below, and $4.00 at other times, instead of the normal $9.00+)
      9-12-2007 Note: I started riding the bus after the Spring Semester ended, so there have been almost no college students riding all summer. Now that UW Oshkosh is back in session, I have seen many students getting on free with their TitanCard student ID. I asked the bus driver, and found out that my identical looking Retiree TitanCard has the same "free ride" privilege as every student. After 3+ months of paying half-price for rides, my bus fare just dropped to zero. How nice!
05-23-2007 - 10.7 mi.
05-24-2007 - Rogan's / Penny's / Paper Tiger (Fox Cities Weekend) / P.O. - $.75 - 0 mi.
05-25-2007 - P.O. / New Moon Cafe / Bank (on Sawyer, walked home from there, 20 min.) - $.50 - 0 mi.

05-29-2007 - Walked to gas station on Oshkosh Ave. for milk, 10 min. - 0 mi.
      Clarification: "I have no current plans of driving anywhere" stated above, does NOT mean I won't drive if necessary for family, or other needs. It only means that I now choose to drive, or not drive, based on the circumstances at the time, and not, as too many people, including especially myself before this page was created, drive anywhere at any time without giving a single thought as to the global consequences of driving a car. At least for me, those days of blind indifference on my part and not considering other transportation options are over.
      That said, be aware that in retirement I have more options than those who work every week day and to whom public transportation is not available as it is in Oshkosh. This page only documents what I am able to do. How any of this applies to you, the reader, is up to you. I can only hope that you, as I do now, will ask yourself, is this car trip really necessary and, is there a more environmentally friendly way of accomplishing this same task?
05-30-2007 - P.O. / the 1st 2006 Live at Lunch: Rob Anthony - $.50 - 0 mi.

06-08-2007
      To explain why I go to the New Moon Cafe during the day every Friday, several months ago at a New Moon gig I noticed a copy of the Oshkosh Northwestern's Thursday entertainment section, "Oshkosh Weekend" being read and passed around. Our apartment owners supply the weekday Northwestern to every tenant. There are always a few papers left over in the lobby which are discarded (hopefully recycled) when the Friday morning edition is distributed. When I remember to do it, I gather up all the Weekend sections and deliver them to the New Moon as a weekly service to the music fans there.

SPECIAL NOTICE:
      07-15-2007: I will take all of my computers in for repair tomorrow. I bought a network router but I cannot get it to work. Like my Dial-Up situation for the past year, each computer only connects to the Internet when the Roadrunner Cable is plugged into it. I have not had both desktop computers on-line at the same time since June 2006. So sometime Monday morning I will go completely off-line again until they get everything working they way I need it to work.
      PS: I have no idea who really reads this page, but to those who have sent me E-Mail recently, even though I have been able to read E-mail at one of my temporary private E-Mail accounts since last Thursday night for the first time in two weeks, I have been unable to send new E-Mail or reply to any messages since June 26th so that they come from "[email protected]". Hopefully the repairers will fix that problem also.

11-10-2007: I have no proof that anyone in the world reads this page regularly. Nobody complained that I have not added anything in almost a month. Therefore there seems to be no point in my wasting my time continuing to log all the minutia data as above. Unless somebody objects, I will only log concerts and/or music festivals attended from now on. Now that most days are about 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below that, long walks outside become more dangerous to life and limb. If the concert listing is followed by "- 0 mi.", then I walked or rode the bus, otherwise I drove.

05-13-2008 - Gas: $3.79 x 15.5 gal. tank = $58.75 for a fill up. I'm sorry. but this is no longer acceptable on a frequent basis. I have been unable to attend any Fond du Lac concerts since 5-20-2007 because of gas prices. Now, as I go off the Green Apple Board, the Annual Meeting in September will be my final car trip to Appleton for any musical purpose I can foresee until gas gets back under $3.00, not likely any time soon. By restricting myself to musical events within the city limits of Oshkosh only, I may be able to afford to continue driving my car for other purposes. I do not want to ever be in the position where gas prices would force me to sell my car, and never be able to drive anywhere again. The Schedule below lists my only non-Oshkosh music related car trips for the foreseeable future. Carpooling is acceptable, and welcomed, but driving by myself to any other out of town musical event is no longer affordable.

      This was my final Board Meeting. Unless I can find a way to get there without using any gas, this was also my last Appleton musical event for the foreseeable future. My last Fond du Lac musical event was on 5-20-2007. In order to avoid the coming uninhabitable Earth in the next 50 years or so, as detailed with crystal clarity in former Senator / Vice President Al Gore's film/DVD, An Inconvenient Truth, everybody must make sacrifices. Eliminating all non-Oshkosh concerts now, and this past year and a half of walking and City Bus riding are some of mine.
      Speaking of which, if you have not bothered to take the time to see this movie, or buy it in DVD format and tried to convince all of your friends and relatives that it is absolutely critical to their children's and their grandchildren's future that they must view it, then YOU are the same as those who stick their head in the sand and pretend that Global Warming and Global Dimming do not exist. It is morally imperative that WE MUST STOP USING ALL FOSSIL FUEL, no matter where it comes from, foreign or domestic, before it is to late for the Earth to recover from the catastrophic CO2 damage that humans have done, and are doing, to it.

[The 'An Inconvenient Truth' film pledge download]     [The 'An Inconvenient Truth' film poster]     Take Action! - What WE can do!
      An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It, by Al Gore (film & book, 328 p.)

      "without using any gas?" - car pooling with someone else to an out of town concert, and sharing gas expenses, would be fine, but I won't make such a trip by myself.
      "Eliminating all non-Oshkosh concerts now?" - this may not seem like much of a sacrifice to some, but this is by someone who has averaged over 100 concerts per year since 2002. - Festivals, etc. exceptions

04-29-2009 - Picked up my Voyager with its transmission reconditioned by Expert Transmission, $1,800 with a one year warranty. That makes it $500 less than the $2,300 rip off quote Midas gave me for the exact same repair. Sure glad I shopped around for a better deal. Don't think I will go anywhere near Midas again. Unfortunately, it was two days too late to get to the WAMI's in my own car. So Enterprise rental came to the rescue, picking me up just like their ads say.

09/11-13/2009 - Highland Park High School (IL), Class of 1959 50th Reunion - What a Blast! The best time I've had in years! (that wasn't music related)
    Between the Registration Fee, 2 nights in the Motel, and 360 miles worth of gas, I spent all, AND MORE, of what I had saved by not attending the Black Hawk, Manitowoc and Shawano Folk Music Festivals, and Fox Jazz Fest this year. Sadly, I couldn't afford the festivals AND the Reunion. A huge factor in my severe concert-going cutback is the exhorbitant jacked-up $30.00 monthly rental increase I got in June from Ass-End-er Bishop. This made it $95.00 in raises since I moved in 6 years ago. It could have been worse. Some apartments here have seen $325.00 in raises in the last 5 years.

An alphabetical list of many of the artists/groups I have seen perform since 9-21-1991.
      I am curious. After looking at this page, and listening to all the National News reports that say gas is not yet priced high enough for anyone anywhere in the world to bother changing their driving habits, have you done anything at all to cut back on your driving and polluting the atmosphere with your gas powered vehicle? I'd rather not hear from you if you don't give a hoot about the Earth, or you don't even believe that a global warming crisis exists.
      Please write if gas prices in particular, or your sincere concern for the environment in general have caused you to make an actual personal change to decrease the amount of how or when you drive. Thank you.

07-31-2007: Sad news for the planet! Although I have yet to hear from anyone via E-Mail in response to the above, I did meet a friend last week while I was out and about. After telling him why I was using the bus instead of my car for almost everything, I asked whether there was anything he could get to during the day via the bus instead of his car. His reply, "Yes, but I don't want to." It is sad that everyone is so tied to their car that the future doesn't matter. I sincerely expect that if I could return to Earth for a visit 75 years from now, I would not be surprised if his great-grandchildren and mine and everyone else in Oshkosh were all wearing gas masks 24 hours a day indoors and outdoors, that is, if the current dangerous trends in the pollution rates from oil, natural gas and coal haven't wiped out every living thing here, or if there isn't a single square inch of land anywhere that is not covered with nuclear waste.
