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 make it to Redding! Sometimes claws of inertia and chaos want to prevent will from prevailing but we made it to join Occupy Redding and Shasta Co. Free Thought Central for the Verizon tax protest.
 I was so glad to find so many activists out there...even dog activists attended! The Redding Occupy looks a bit like the Chico Occupy in that we are mostly "matured" folks...however, the spirit is great and it was fun to be out there with these like-minded folks.
 If upper income people and corporation (AKA upper income people) paid their fair share of taxes then we could turn this country around quickly.
 Michael would have chosen to ski today but we both enjoyed the picket as well as a Single Payer Health program at a Fish and Chips Restaurant afterwards. It was just a thoroughly satisfying experience and gave me a sense of hope and solidarity which is very nurturing... speaking of which...
I just wanted to add... since we see that readers find us from all over the globe... I am a 40 year ovo-lacto vegetarian but the blog is about running our vehicle on straight vegetable oil...not about food, although we obtain our waste oil from restaurants. . Disclaimer... I had deep fried zucchini at that Fish and Chips place--more oil than I have consumed for many years so I feel like I'm running on SVO myself right now. We are on our way to a book signing for the Veggie Voyagers book this evening so hopefully we will find some interest there in what we are doing with alternative fuels.
