Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

We are in Fernie, B.C. We haven’t been here long enough to know why it has that name but we did go to the Aqua Center, the grocery store and attend to the sunset over the gorgeous toothy mountains that ring the valley on three sides. It’s got a lot of interesting old buildings, a very active train that barges through town frequently and a bunch of obnoxious, expensive ski development as you come into town from the south.
We’ve been up on a Forest Service Road for a couple of days. Got lured up there by a wonderful hot springs then kept going…very, very slowly. Spent the night before last a Munroe Lake and last night at the 51 km. marker on Bull River. It squalled up at that gorgeous lake and there was a big thunder and lightning show in the night last night but by the time we got down near the logging town of Galloway everything was dry and warm again.
It’s Labor Day. I don’t feel too bad not laboring but the Canadians are trying to get in a long weekend. Kids go back to school on Tuesday. It’s also the start of bow hunting season so Sasha is wearing logging ties and looks very pretty in pink.
