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

Hancock too

There has been severe drought on the east coast. The reservoir for New York city in Pepacton is at 80%. When we were in the Catskills after Michael processed veggie oil in fierce chilled wind, we hiked to Balsam Lake Forest Lookout Tower at the end of a storm which had all the look and feel of early winter.
The last photos here were just after the rains the day before that when water was coursing down all the rocks and low places of the hillsides and dozens of newts were exploring the flooded grassy banks of a small lake.
I realized that our entrance point to Pennsylvania from New York was Hancock, New York just as the cusp of Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia is Hancock, Maryland…This Hancock has the good fortune of hosting a Rails to Trail bikeway that extends from Cumberland to Washington, that I hope we’ll get out on this afternoon.
