This 4th of July we did what we always have done, Wake up Early and pack the car, get to the Sebago State Park. Wait inline for hours, Get into the park, relax have fun and then go home. The only different this year is that we drive The X. During the wait for hours in line it dawn on me that this was happening. **Parks open at 9am: About 150+ cars will arrive and are in line prior to gate opening. During that time some engines are running and some are off: CO2 is just spilling out while idling. ** Park now open @ 9 AM but you have 150+ cars and new one arriving that get added to the long line. Now all the cars in line are running and idling. It took us about 1 hour from opening to entering the park. so every car that just arrive idle for at least 1 hour before entering the park and then park. ***This goes on for about 5-7 hours from 7 am till about 2pm before all cars are clear from waiting inline. All of this got me to thinking, State park are clean and the air is great, But everyday we drive our ICE car in and pollute the air at the state park and then when we leave all of that pollution builds up over time. We think we are entering a place of clean air and freshness. But really we pollute the air to the park while we wait, and then leave the park in a state of disaster full of air pollution. For the first time, I felt that we were the only family that was using the Park correctly. We enter the Park clean and when we left the Park, we left nothing behind.
