What things did you enjoy the most about your experience this week?
Once your amortized goods are set up, the filling of the tracking spreadsheet is pretty straightforward.
What were the main challenges you faced during the week?
This week I had to endure a lot of physical work. There was a special grape Harvest year for me. It was raining during the first days, and the young personnel that would join to work didn’t bother to appear. Som y wife and I did the work alone. It should have taken 1 day, but it took five. Therefore I postponed filling the tracking spreadsheet for the weekend.
What were your main lessons learned of the week?
Next year I’ll invite a lot of friends to help with the grape Harvest. I’ll make sure they fully share their cars so that the carbon footprint per mile will become much lower for everyone.
What would have made it easier for you to achieve or surpass your target this week?
I ought to have two work vehicles not powered by fóssil fuels. But the work power is actually still much better with fóssil fuels, as well as 4WD engine traction. Ok, i sell my grapes to third parties, so this should not account for my personal carbon budget. But as i have no tractor, I used my personal 4WD vehicle. Moreover, I borrowed an old pickup from a neighbor. At least, the vehicles share personal and professional uses, so i believe that the global carbon footprint will be less than if the vehicles only had the function of transportation for professional business. All in all, I think that cities should ban fóssil fuels for resident vehicles as soon as possible. For rural áreas like mine, in the mountains, and for working machines, the transition has to be more tolerant.
