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

I'm still running the car on the Arcata bio-diesel. Today 'went to Yuba City for a job interview and came back by way of these bras. I will miss the Cancer Detection Program but I think it will be satisfying to work directly with people again.

Yesterday I went to Oroville and visited old friends from different areas of my life. First, a friend from the radio. She works at the Fish Hatchery. Due to the dam the spring run salmon will die here below the spillway and not even have their roe harvested like what happens in the fall.

I also visited an old nursing buddy. She recently had to take down her old barn. Barns all over America are coming down. She memoralized her's with this photo framed by the wood of the structure.

She's loaned out her land to PIC for food for the Senior Nutrition Program and for "Checkers," a restaurant that trains young people in restaurant services.

She also loaned land to Hmong farmers who bring a deep and ancient knowledge of farming to bring the interface between hot sky and dry earth to life with just the cost of time, water and a good bit of tending.
It was Good to visit with good folks. My next friend gave me plums and cactus and the friend after that let me water a fairy garden... a very good day.
