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

 This disturbing lack of rain is balanced by beautiful mild days and chilly nights. I caught these chard on their way to Farmer's Market, gem-like and pre-delicious.
Occupy Chico continues with the help of some lovely elders-- Diana Fogel's mom and aunt. With budget cuts to IHSS coming from the state of California I can only appeal for people to refuse to let the most vulnerable and post-delicious suffer.  There is enough money.  Our children and elders are our first priority.
 And on that note, Sisko and the Frontal Lobe Society posted a new ironic cap-off to all such seriousness... best not be late for the mayfly convention, y'all.
 Meanwhile, back at Riparia, Guthrie, Kyle, Alek and Belen joined us for potluck and gift exchange last night (from Vermont and Ecuador.)
 It was wonderful to meet Belen and see how happy she and Alek are. I praise the cycles of life and look forward to partnership meeting and land work day this weekend.
