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

to Nevada

After we left Zion we dropped down to LaVerkin and Hurricane, towns that are growing fast, as is St. George. Fruit trees were blooming and the weather was perfect but the hot spring we were looking forward to no longer had hot water so we scooted on through as fast as we could and went up the Silver Reef dirt road (Dixie National Forest) to camp and then continued to St. George that way. We provisioned in St. George which took a chunk of day to get food, propane, showers, water, veggie oil…After that there was no way other than to get on the Big highway (15) but we only made it as far as the Virgin River Gorge Recreation area which was interesting but the rough dirt road going the other direction was what pulled us up into the Beaver Dam Wilderness area (Arizona) and a Joshua tree magical forest where we spent last night.
Now we are in Mezquite, Nevada, on the state line. It is blustery but we’ll continue down toward Lake Mead after we leave here. Michael was able to pick up more veggie oil at a Chinese restaurant here so we feel confident we can make it to Death Valley with the veggie oil we have.
