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

Moab

This morning I popped up for the dawn. It is easier now that it is less cold.
Soon after, clouds started to squeeze in from the west and before we had gone far it was snowing. Michael, at that point, had to change the veggie oil filter.
Forty miles later we got to Moab, Utah and it was warm and sunny. Michael had success at both a Szechwan and a Thai restaurant. I went wandering on my way to the library and I saw the Don’t Trash mural painted by children with the trash in the foreground. So much for hip Moab...all our communities suffer the same.
One thing’s for sure. The war for our Public Lands is being waged here between the non-motorized and the motorized. The motorized are sponsored by Honda, Harley Davidson, Yamaha and major mining, gas and oil companies. There's a big JEEP hoopla here this weekend so we will process veggie oil, do laundry, provision and get on.
