Texas Town Runs Out Of Water – Fracking

Yes, I’m a tree hugger, star lover and I respect my earth. Yes, my earth. All of us that live on it and use it – it belongs to us and we should respect it and care.

While traveling in states that are heavy in fracking, I constantly hear, ‘it is good for the State as it brings in billions of dollars.’ It does, but the people don’t receive billions or even hundreds. The towns are filthy, the general public are poor and the night sky is illuminated with fire and smoke. The housing dates back to slavery days, and like the slaves, nearly all of their money pays rent. (Back to the oil companies)

Be ashamed Texas, North Dakota and so many other states.

Mostly Cloudy With a 100% Chance of Fracking

Late start out of Apostle Islands – like 1:00 pm late start. Organic blueberries from home and organic flour along with fresh eggs right out of the chicken’s butt, made for an awesome breakfast, with Lake Superior just a few feet from us.

Staying in Crookston, MN tonight and blowing through North Dakota tomorrow due to the fracking. NO desire to get caught up in the traffic, trying to find a place for the Stream or mass numbers of people. I hope to be amused for at least ten minutes.

We met a part time RV’er that solo travels around the USA named Linda, and she carries a motorcycle on the back of her 35 foot RV. Very independent and cool lady. Never married, no children (other than the two cats, Whiskey and one that I call Shy Guy. I made Linda blueberry pancakes also.

If There’s a Sticker, I Want One

If There’s a Sticker, I Want One

US 2 begins in Michigan and I’m excited to experience it nearly in its entirety with two of my good friends, Kevin and my Stream. Of course spending two weeks nearly around the clock with someone rather than something [Airstream] usually presents itself with an adventure all its own. 😏

A five thousand mile road trip with the climax being half way through this journey, rather than near the end as with most books; Glacier, Montana and Banff, Canada.

I asked Kevin on a Sunday if he was interested and ten days later we were on our way. Now that’s the way I like to roll! Spontaneity at its best.

US 2 – East to West, I’m lookin’ forward to hangin’ with you for a while, and I want a US 2 sticker!
