    Looks like the Aldi stores are the only one's around San Diego that have HFC free refrigerants in their fridges & freezers. I wonder where the trade off is if it's worth driving the extra distance to get to and HFC free grocery store. BUT on another note there is a cool page on the site showing how you can become a "Citizen investigator" to snap photos of the refrigerant labels inside of fridges and send it to the website so they can start tracking more stores. Just you wait - I'm going be "that person" snapping photos of the grocery store refrigerator!!

    Just purchased offsets for my flight back to San Diego on this coming Sunday. For good measure, I doubled it to include the offset for my flight up here last March.

    Looked for used electric scooter options (vespa-style scooter, not bird- or mobility-style). I'd rather buy used than new to increase longevity of an already existing vehicle. My intent would be primarily to use this for commute to work and trips around town when I don't need to go on the highway, but am just too lazy to ride my bicycle. (also, it's quieter than a motorcycle for bringing a cat along!)
