The Middle/Path Project EP 04: What Goes Up Might Not Come Down

For the fourth and final episode of The Middle/Path Project, the crew heads back to Montana. While they don’t go full enviro-mode, they start to question how much fuel they are burning to ride some powder–and they do ride plenty of it in the pursuit of a middle path.

“Not very many of us have the will power to stop these habits cold turkey, but every little bit of awareness we soak in affects our daily actions. On this trip we started to look into what effects starting our vehicles, and driving them, has on the planet.
What output do I produce when I burn a gallon of fuel? We headed back out to Montana and kept track of the fuel we consumed. With winter as a common passion we will be the first ones to feel the effects of an unstable environment. Take a look around, what kind of world do you want to pass on to the next generation. It’s time to make a conscious choice. It’s not about ceasing to enjoy our daily habits, but making decisions with awareness is something we must add to the recipe. Appreciate life, and find your way on the middle path.”
