"The oil is not gone. This story is not over. We smelled it in the air. We felt it in the water. People along the Gulf Coast are getting sick and sicker. Marshes are burned. Oysters are scarce and shrimp are tainted. Jobs are gone and stress is high. What is now hidden will surface over time."
You should probably read this article, even though it's long, because: "To bear witness is not a passive act."
Their bus may not be as beautiful and glorious-looking as our Gus, but it's pretty cool nonetheless that the funky "prog-metal" band Mose Giganticus is currently touring around in a lean, mean, veggie oil-powered machine, just like us! And look, they even have a star on their door...
We're Baja Trek, home of Gus the Big Red Baja Beach Bus of Adventure.
Our goal is to have you on the bus even when you're not physically on the bus. We'll attempt to post newsy or semi-thoughtful items from our part of the world and others too, hopefully in a way that's relevant to our project and to you. Let's generate ideas together!
Feel free to comment on/complain about/praise any post and to send ideas and suggestions to us about things to cover. We're always looking for good guest posts, so if you have an idea, send it our way!
