So much is happening in the span of a week and with no reliable internet connection and supporting all of these different actions, I am finding little time to write, report post pictures about what we are doing,  aside from the actions and life on the farm we are also always working on the bus and new and interesting problems to solve all the time. Currently we are on our way to NE Pennsylvania, on our way to meet Dr. Dave so he can take a look at and try to resolve, solve, our problem with the veggie oil system. We have made many changes trying to solve this problem of air bubbles, vacuum forming, restricting fuel supply, we have tightened and changed many lines, added another fuel pump, then took it out, bypassed heaters, passed them again, bypassed them again, all attempts so far have failed to fix the problem. This past weekend we were in New Haven reoccupying with them, sleeping in the park, marching, talking about issues, local and global, talking about issues in occupy, talking about solutions, making some noise and stopping traffic on the streets,

while leaving New Haven we said good bye for now to Laura, she stayed in New Haven along with some others from the streets of NY to help and support New Haven in their attempt for reoccupation. Now we find ourselves on our way to meet Dr. Dave, hopefully, fingers crossed , we will fix it and then figure out where we go from there, all the time the occupy bus tour is organically flowing in different directions and we can go anywhere because everywhere we look to travel to there is corruption, everywhere shits fucked up and bullshit, corporations are destroying our food, air, and water, and leaving us sick and the land sick in the wake of their destruction and all in the name of profit, the government supporting them in their efforts, the revolving doors between government and corporations, money corrupting all people in there greed for it and the power it seems to bring, but the real power is with the people and we want to travel around reminding people of this power, we are the power if we will unite together all of us everywhere, all across the world, this is the fight of our lives and for the lives of future generations, justice, freedom, and an end to the destruction of the planet and the people by the 1%. Before we were in the city we were on the farm, we stayed for a week through mostly rain and our goals while there was to document what is happening on the farm and switch a veggie line out, which we did both of

and we thought we had finally fixed the veggie oil system, our trip back to the city was flawless, but on the way to New Haven the same old thing started happening and hour into the trip so now back to square one which is why one again we find ourselves on the way to Pennsylvania, we shall see what we can do as far as occupy/activism while we are there and from there who knows, but I’m excited to see, it’s always an adventure.
