This young man shares his song with the world.   There’s nothing good about war.  It sends brave young men and women into harms way and it’s usually for some resource needed by the rich.  In this day and age we should be bringing peace and love not violence.   (more…)

You can't evict an idea whose time has come.

A wonderful time was had roaming the streets of Truth or Consequences, Hatch and Deming, New Mexico and then into Arizona through Casa Grande.  Beautiful weather and some new friends met.   Felt real good to be back out in the streets.   (more…)

New faces in old places!

What a pleasure it was to meet Rebecca, her husband Jay and their son who came to visit us on the RV and share stories. They’re from Ft. Collins and also visiting TorC where they spotted the ‘V’ sitting at Artesian Hot Springs. Thank you for the cake, tea and chocolate.

Met some other great people like Elizabeth at the Riverbend Hot Springs.   (more…)

soaking up the sun in AZ

How exciting to be back occupying the roads!   Since just Dec. 21st we’ve been roaming the streets of southern Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona to soak up some sun and meet new people.

First we met James who dropped a box of food and drinks at our doorstep and then stopped by to give us some information.  Next we ran into a Cold War protestor named Mikey who shared a few of her stories. (more…)

The “V” loves a parade!

Walmart strikers

This Black Friday we need to send the Waltons a message. We can’t sit back while their workers go hungry any longer. And Walmart and the Waltons must stop taking illegal actions against Walmart workers who want to work hard and be able to provide for our families

To take action, join us at the north end Pueblo Walmart with a sign saying that you support the workers fighting for fair pay and respect, we’ll be taking picture of ourselves, to let the manager we support the workers’ cause. Walmart tracks all of these actions and they have a huge impact. There’s an example picture right below! (more…)

Tonight we joined others at Sisters City Plaza (Pueblo), a stand in solidarity with our Mexican friends and families who are rising up against their Gov’t, being held liable for the disappearance of 43 male activist students.

Protesters in the Mexican state of Guerrero have set fire to the local legislature as outrage spreads over the disappearance of 43 students. The students from Ayotzinapa teacher’s college have been missing for nearly seven weeks after they were ambushed by police. Unrest has intensified since Mexican Attorney General Jesús Murillo Karam announced Friday that suspects in the case have admitted to killing the students and incinerating their bodies at a trash dump. More than 70 people have been arrested in the case, including the mayor of Iguala, who is accused of ordering the police attack ……see more on the story here:

The “V” is headed to Moab, UT and having a little fun on the way with family for a week.  Stopped at the sand dunes overnight, then went to Durango today where we played outdoor Xylophones in a park.  Tomorrow on to Moab, UT to check thing sour.   Add another State to the list of 42 visited!

Occupying the Roads always feels good and especially meeting all the  wonderful people as we go. (more…)
