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 left our haven by the Carson River this morning to head south to Minden. The Obama headquarters shares its office with the Democrats there and they are a fiery, determined bunch. We like the more rural countryside around Minden but it is unfortunately more homogeneous and more republican.
Minden/Gardnerville has irrigated valleys and the sheer east side of the Sierra looms close above it. Canvassing this afternoon was a mix of steep driveways, golf course gated communities, and cute little old, odd places. Tame deer graze all over the place.
We had some time to settle in before going out, and got to meet Cathy and Joe, who let us use their wonderful home for catching up on the blog and laundry. (Hopefully I’ll have some pictures of them to follow.) We are now contentedly parked in their yard at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac where hungry bears sometimes visit at this time of year.
