The same vehicle that crash-landed down the Fearsome pass in Seattle, your vehicle, which you......... helped repair and strengthen, just conquered Siskiyou Pass. You doubled the climbing capacity by doubling the battery storage, you enabled a climbing gear on the motor and the climbing gear for the cyclist, and many details that made this all come together, and the repairs, the replacement and backup rims, tires, tubes, Tire liners to reduce Flats. No Flats today by the way. and you strengthened the trailer axle. Almost not, almost didn't complete today's Journey. Well, the pass was okay, but as some of you know I was more concerned about the secondary roads California would force me onto, off of the interstate. Subsequently I thought I saw a way to do it. I was sure. 2 miles from the summit of Siskiyou is a gorgeous Lodge for Rich folks. Callahan's. I stopped for something to eat. And to let the vehicle soak up some electrons. What I could afford was coffee and a tip so that's what happened. As I sat there I looked more carefully at the route down from Siskiyou to where I am now. It looked great, the secondary roads. On the elevation profile, however, there was this tiny little Notch, tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny I hadn't noticed it before. My friend Bill in Ashland who's home I stayed several days, an extraordinary Global cyclist, had no recollection of it. It was where the secondary Road crossed Shasta River, and upon closer examination it was a climb, 250 ft, in one tenth of a mile. This vehicle can pretty well handle a 250 foot climb over a mile. This was 10 times more than was possible. There are portions of Interstate 5 where it is legal for bicycles. That was much of the  10 Mile descent from Siskiyou Pass. But then it went illegal. But the alternative route was impossible for this vehicle. So reluctantly The Voyage continued on the interstate. Traffic was light. The shoulder was wide and clean. No structural reason why cyclists would have been excluded. And the bicycle gods did not decide to get me arrested today. I think they're saving that for Silicon Valley. As the bicycle travels, Silicon Valley is between 350 and 400 miles away. Barring any unexpected travel disasters I expect to arrive Silicon Valley next weekend. Wow, the poor disc brakes with all that 10 miles of steep descent today.

Just arrived Callahan's. No problem. Looks like about 500', two miles, left to go. Then 10 miles of melting brakes. Yuck.

So far, everything according to plan or better. The new gears, the fan cooling the motor. Averaging...... about four and a half miles an hour. Currently at the switch back. If the Google lady is correct about one-third of the climb is done and two-thirds remain, 1355 feet. There should be enough energy in the batteries to make it all the way to the top but to be prudent and conservative the vehicle and I are stopped at the switch back for half an hour or so charging at a rate of 230 watts per hour.

Like my father's generation, I am an extremist. They radically converted their lives and the entire US economy in a year to fight the threat to their future Generations. You can't get more extreme than that.

We all want some things so much that we spend our lives on them. I spend mine on a future for creation other than the hell that we are currently handing it. Pretty simple.

7:15 tomorrow morning is the expected beginning of the assault on the 2000 foot, 6 degree plus climb of Siskiyou Pass. It might be easy. It might be impossible for this vehicle and me. By midday the answer should be clear. Knowledgeable and kind Souls have provided what information they can although no one has experience with this kind of vehicle so that's a limiting factor.

Looks like jail time ahead in Silicon Valley for vagrancy. I will not shy away. I know of one so-called friend that has tried to avert this by tapping his Network. So far...... nothing, apparently. One friend has apparently found a possibility in Santa Cruz but that's a different location. I have nearly exhausted the bicycle support group. One positive response. Another brother in Berkeley has found a place for the vehicle to park and that's a blessing. But Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, nothing. Time in jail and who knows what'll happen to the vehicle. oh, and still no room at the Inn. Nearly every Quaker Meeting and every United Church of Christ, and every Unitarian Universalist Church has been contacted by email or phone, no room at the Inn. No reply. F****** cowards.

James, many of us are living the nightmare.  Respectfully I disagree, I replied.  I see many existing in the Nightmare, and living in denial of it.  At the same time.  To live the nightmare is to be at total all out War to stop it.  I....... feel very very alone in that. Near totally, more so every day. I see many in sympathy with the cause, almost none committed. This is not a condemnation it is an honest and sorrowful observation. My father's generation said, where can I enlist? Today's generations say, what will it cost me? What can I do? I don't know what to do, and on and on and on and on and on. Endless denial, endless excuses.

As someone committed to saving the world, there is little that I saw at Standing Rock that I liked, that was of any substantial hope, and even less afterwards. But to the.... nice man yesterday, and the millions like him, that said, well, I have mixed emotions about Standing Rock. The tons and tons of garbage. To that man I say, number one you were not there. You don't know except what the fossil-fuel owned media told you. And that should humble you if you care the least about the truth. Number two, and more important. I would take 100 of whatever you think the Refuge mountains were, I would take 100 standing rocks as you envision it, for a half of the forest land burned because of global warming in the Northwestern United States. And I would take a thousand of your worst imaginings of Standing Rock refuse, for what was just done in the last couple of months to the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, and the southeastern United States. Read the Birmingham Jail letter from dr. King sometime. My problem is not the White Citizens committee or the KKK, he said. My problem is the white moderate that says I agree with your cause, but I do not agree with the way you are fighting.

Departing Grants Pass now, 10 am. Expecting to arrive Ashland mid-afternoon. Expecting to consult with bicycle shops on the vehicle and on the route down to Sacramento.

Truth, if it is important and new to you, has the features of a paradigm, and may be exactly a paradigm shift for you. It requires the effort to physically expand and adjust your nervous system so that you can accommodate and encompass the new truth. Think of the effort required simply to see a new visual Paradigm, the old woman and the young woman in the same picture, for example.

For those who accept the status quo, even if they say they don't like it, there is never, has never been, a way acceptable to them for others to fight for change. Ever. They always hate it.

For those who accept the status quo, even if they say they don't like it, there is never, has never been, a way acceptable to them for others to fight for change. Ever. They always hate it........ Every life, every effort, has collateral consequences, collateral damage. Those who detest efforts to change the status quo accept Earth destroying levels of collateral damage as long as those are aligned with maintaining the status quo. But collateral damage despite the best efforts to avoid it among agents of change, totally unacceptable. Horrible. Detestable. Unless or until it is at a safe enough Geographic or historical distance that in their cowardice they can say it was a good thing. Never in the present. A pleasant gentleman, late 40s, white male, approached me in the Starbucks about this vehicle and ones he builds for amphibious races, pedal-powered. At some point I mentioned Standing Rock and immediately, although still Pleasant, he went right into an authoritative stance that Standing Rock was in large part of bad thing, created mountains of garbage. He knew that what I said was false, when I said that if a hurricane or police force came in and destroyed the buildings around us here in Grants Pass, there would be mountains of garbage. He wasn't there, I was, he had no reason to think that I was deceitful, and yet he was the authority and knew what he wanted to believe and wanted to hear nothing to the contrary. The mountain ranges of wreckage that he as a Westerner leaves on Earth with his Western overconsumption and entitlement is of course, entirely acceptable to him. But people that stumble out trying to figure out how to improve the future, detestable to him. And to most people.

Despite gladly devoting every penny that comes my way, every breath, to this mission to save a mother earth for our children, the basic demands to make this experimental vehicle survive the journey and capable of dealing with ever-increasing obstacles, is keeping it drowning in debt. This despite gladly sacrificing Every....... Creature Comfort but we are taught is necessary in this sick Society. I keep thinking that the next month it will climb out of debt, and each month it does not. This makes it extremely vulnerable to one more financial hit, and rather more stressful in an already stressful Journey.

Truth cannot be given one to another, at best it can only be made more likely of being discovered. This lesson is not one I have wanted to learn and have resisted learning it all these decades. But there it is. When one tries........ to give the truth as best one knows it almost invariably it renders it invisible. The intended receiver may well think that they have received the truth, but again, almost invariably they have received at best a mere Shadow and lost the inclination to dig deeper for the essentials. I must stop doing this disservice to people. In this light I better understand why our great human beings have had so little impact on the world, Martin Luther King Junior, Gandhi, and they are like. We quickly here platitudes, decide we now grasp what they had two teachers, move on, and never Advanced our core understanding.

I replied, that's odd, I can't think of anything that anyone could say or do that would make me stop fighting for the well-being of folks I care about as best I could. This to the nice person on Facebook that had just posted about how the folks they were finding in the free Palestine movement, some of them were nasty. And that therefore the person wouldn't be fighting to free Palestine anymore. We are brilliant at finding excuses for ourselves, pathologically brilliant.

Repairs and upgrades are expected to be completed here in Grants Pass today. If so the journey can resume early tomorrow morning. If all........ goes well then Silicon Valley should be about 11 days away. There is a critical need for housing in Silicon Valley, a place to park the vehicle or it can legally provide sleep for the night, for funds to repay some of the credit card debt for these repairs and upgrades, and for someone to take the videos from this blog and get them up on YouTube.

No one without a sheathing rage at what we are doing to the Childrens planet, country, to all of creation, can understand me and this mission. I'm quite sure this is in line with Gandhi who said that someone unable to do violence is incapable of waging nonviolence, paraphrase.

I'm quite sure this is in line with Gandhi who said that someone unable to do violence is incapable of waging nonviolence, paraphrase. This seems to be why, as much or more than anything, conservatives relate positively to me face to face, and liberals slink away in this pain. As Chris Hedges observes, liberals have lost the capacity to feel anything. The exception that proves the rule.

Just like we purchase everything else by giving our life for it, I want us to purchase a planet our children can thrive on by giving our lives for it. And that's exactly what I try to do.

A year in prison for standing Rock, has been averted by diligent and competent work by my lawyer. Court-appointed but funded in part I think by guardian angels. Final paperwork has been received. No court time, no jail time, minimal fine, record expunged in 12 months time. Time in prison could have been a wonderful opportunity to serve human rights but this mission is a better way so it is an incredible blessing that that was averted at this time.

If I fail you, if I fail anyone, it is in allowing myself even momentarily, psychologically, to come off the field of battle. I don't like...... tension, even creative tension, at least my body doesn't. I don't like being harsh, at least part of me doesn't. Believe it or not I like being Pleasant, I like being comfortable to be around. So to a degree  on Facebook, and to a degree in face-to-face encounters those pressures move me even slightly off the field of battle to being a more gentle presence. I fail you in that. Let alone I fail my clients, the world's neediest born and who will be born in the future. None of us should come off the field of battle for the future even for a moment. So am I doing so among other things is a terrible failure of leadership. I think I have it within me to stop failing you in this way. I will seem even more harsh, more remote, less available, less kind, if that's possible, you may Wonder. James

Coming out of the bike shop that is wonderfully rescuing my vehicle from disaster due to a broken rear wheel, and substantially strengthening it, and critically weakening my financial position which is already on life support, I came across a gaggle of beautiful....... women my age, women in black. Women in black they announce themselves as. They invited me to lunch and later I attended. Mary Beth was among them, 88 years old, a self-described peace pilgrim that has traveled the country promoting peace. Such a magnificent soul. All of them very nice Souls. It was a great joy. They seemed to want to know much about my story and journey. They seemed to receive some inspiration from it. When folks genuinely wants to know what I'm doing, it causes me to connect with depths of emotion that generally I don't connect with. Quite frequently I was choked up.

The heart is one hell of a pilot. About 15 years ago I got tired of my head and flesh being in charge and made the heart, soul, my pilot. It is one hell of a ride. Not for one breath..... have I regretted it. And early in my business career of running into failing situations to turn them around, I started to get pretty good at it. There was no way that my fairly sharp mind was going to figure things out in time. I had to turn to that much larger part of the nervous system, the heart, feed it like crazy with appropriate information, and hope it coughed up the Solutions in time. Pretty regularly it did. And that's the way miracles happen. Einstein said something like, I think 99 times and nothing. I go swim in a quiet pool and there's the answer.

I think that making the truth easy is not possible, and attempting to do so makes it less likely to discover. This I have been guilty of.

Financial and other contributions badly needed. Marooned in Grants Pass Oregon while parts arrive for repairs and strengthening of the vehicle. Departure now expected...... on Thursday, roughly 10 day Journey Down to the all-important Silicon Valley. Lodging desperately needed in the San Jose region. Laws and finances will put me in jail unless legal places to park this vehicle in someone's driveway or yard are uncovered. So far there has been lip service, a little bit, but nothing provided by those who said they might help. It is important to see how few people are really friends of this Mission, almost none.
