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

Toby and Fred

 Toby and Fred have recently been to Creech Air Force Base for drone protests and swung by to see us. It was an active weekend leading into an action at Beale Air Force Base. A good respite and time to explore Chico and squeeze in my signature gathering efforts for Frack Free Butte County through it all.
 Our land partner Bob is part of the Chico Housing Action Team. They are exploring ways to house the homeless with dignity but this little prototype was too wobbly on it's little trailer to travel safely to Bob's chagrin. He wanted to take it to show off at a big clean up day and was thwarted by reality.
 We had breakfast at 100th Monkey Cafe and then rode bikes to the Farmers Market, The Peace Endeavor Vigil and Food Not Bombs. We are all excited to have C.T. Butler and Wren Tuatha settling nearby. An infusion of energy is already happening and it is coming at a much needed time.
Nearing the end of our time together we went to Upper Bidwell Park. I treasure these times with Michael. I can't begin to tell you how much. I also appreciate our friends, near and far.
 Lastly, this is Aramenta. She showed up like a gift from the Goddess. I am going to slide away from all my cares and worry about protecting our water and this signature gathering campaign and let her take the reins and bring us to a successful conclusion, i.e. getting the Fracking Ban on the November ballot. I don't want to spend any more time away from home than I have to. She's a god-send.
