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

Our spirit here

Tomorrow night is the Benefit for my dear Theresa and we will be gone. Michael was processing veggie oil late into the night last night. Despite the dry week we are off in search of sun softened snow.
This week I participated in a vigil for the people of Gaza. It has been horrific that the American people and leadership are so unmoved by the suffering of the people there. Israel's actions are intolerable and we are a willing partner in crimes against humanity. We must do everything we can to bring PEACE and JUSTICE to the Palestinian people. What about their right to exist?

I got to see a few of my Adult Protectiver Services buddies. These women walk on water as far as I am concerned. Despite gross underfunding and understaffing they do what they can, horribly under-resourced, to protect seniors and dependent adults.

Lastly, I hear from Amy, the Guatemala representative of Pueblo Partisans, that I won't be able to visit Tanjoc during my visit in March. That little village is always weaving in and out of my thoughts. Read about Tanjoc at and give if you can, to help their children and community flourish.
