Looking for a simpler life, but not too simple…

Great News!

I spoke with Clark today from Green Eye Auto. They do SVO (straight veggie oil) conversions and this is the same company that made the kit for Benny’s conversion. He wants me to come up to Eugene, OR in May to apprentice under him and learn more about veg conversions. After that I’ll do installs for the company while I’m traveling around the US. 🙂 I am so stoked about this and can’t wait to learn more.

On another note: We are planning on leaving the farm in Albuquerque on Thursday to travel to Texas for the NuRVers gathering. We plan on stopping in Roswell and Carlsbad Caverns and I think some friends of Tara’s in Texas. I am looking forward to not being rushed and being able to sight-see and take our time getting there. It has just been go go go since we left Vegas. I am in desperate need of some down time and some R&R. Plus, we are going to meet up with Matt and Sara from The Happy Janssens at the gathering. 🙂

    If you can, spend the day at Carlsbad. It is amazing!! The best tour is walking down from the top. You get to hear the story on how it was discovered and gradually see how everything changes as you walk downward. Then you get to the main cavern. Words can not discribe, it’s just amazing!

    Hope you like it in Eugene. I love it up here (although I am three hours north) and could not imagine living anywhere else.

    Enjoy reading your adventures.

  12. If Crystal and I can get things together it sounds like we could be candidates (timing wise) for your first conversion.

    Dude, seriously, exciting news! Congratulations.
