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

KZFR's 20th birthday party was held at Scotty's Landing. Where we were, shooting down on this tranquil scene, there was a two hour wait for french fries and a really great party with wonderful people. We did get the opportunity to paddle in to the party by canoe though. -- a great family to be part of... I'm grateful to have been involved the last 18 years.
This butterfly is much more amazing than this photo but the others are out of focus. We walked down the Bizz Johnson rails to trails from Goumaz, where we camped by the Susan River and saw this beautiful, exhausted butterfly.

We stopped at Lake Almanor. Mt. Lassen has lost most of its snow and there was a layer of smoke over the town of Chester. The water was strangely warm.

We camped a night along Humboldt Road, off a meadow. It was spongy and wet and full of life.

This is Humboldt summit, looking out to Lassen from a different angle. Unfortunately we only had about 20% of the trip on biodiesel and no veggie. We'll go again this weekend but Michael is committed to processing veggie oil so we can run the truck with good conscience.
After that I'll gear up to work on the NO on Prop 23 team. California has to have AB 32 the state climate change legislation that will be prevented by Prop 23 if the oil companies and republicans have their way.
