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

 Packing up the house was one thing but getting everything for the truck and for the trip was far more formidable. We were supposed to leave last Thursday and each day had its challenges, especially getting the flat bed ready for the cab-over. We were moved out by Sunday but didn't leave until last night... Last view from our bedroom, below.
 Now, the view from our sitting area from the camper out into the late afternoon and 104 degree temperature.
 Poor Michael, covered in dirt and sweat from all the finding and packing of the stuff that is now safely stored in those boxes along the lower sides of the camper.
 We left Chico at 8pm, through the sickly fire orange skies into the night climbing out of the soup of it by Redding and woke this morning at Whiskeytown Lake, up by the Power Station where we parked when we started and ended our Veggie Voyager 5 years ago. This time leaving on Bio-diesel with our solar panels on our bed, not yet mounted and too tired to cook dinner.. just straight to bed chorused by frogs and crickets.
