This is much more than just a story about two guys who set out in their old Mercedes, which has been converted to use vegetable oil, to travel from Vermont to California. Along the way, they make certain stops to check out "green" places. I thought they could have written a bit more about the places...
Anecdotes from a very smelly road trip mix with side trips to alternative energy projects across the country, from a wind farm in Minnesota to a "green" WalMart in Texas. While it's not great literature, it was fun, and I spent a few days thinking about energy consumption/conservation.
