No farms no jobs.
Someone please look up what is going on. There was a train of cars driving 20 under speed limit with flashers on as if a funeral procession, all the cars had something written on them. Great protest idea and possible issue we need to address. I have video of the procession. "We protest the governor ag bill", "this is a national issue"
Yesterday I drove through illinois, indiana and landed in akron, ohio at the home of my dear friend chris and his lovely family. We spent the evening relaxing on their back deck, watching the sun dance around their wooded yard while the dogs enjoyed the fresh air. The attached photo was the view from his back porch!
It was great reflecting on our cali days and catching up on eachothers' current state of affairs. I now, after meeting chris's family, where his kind nature comes from. I have rarely felt so welcome; they were even wonderful with harley and eddie!
Today I woke up and had brakfast with chris and his mom before hitting the road just minutes before I called into my radio show. I lost service a few times but wayne and kevin were there to fill in until I call back. I hpoe folks are enjoying the on the road call-in style commentary, I sure am having fun! Www.revolutionbroadcasting.com to find the podcast!
So far today I have seen the beauty of ohio and pennsylvania, and new york. I even made the mid-drive decision to take a 1.5 hour detour so I could have lunch with the boys at niagra falls. It was lovely sitting in the grass sorrounded by beauty. I opted out of the full tour as the ground was hot on the mutts. I wasn't expecting all the buildings and surrounding sky line, but it was still quite the sight!
I am now on my way to itaca to camp for the night before I head to nh to pick up tracy and hit porcfest!!!!
Love you all <3

Yesterday (Monday) was absolutely lovely. Rosie and I took the pups to the chicago doggie beach. It really made my day seeing the boys have so much fun. The lake was beautifully clear compared to the santa barbara beaches; it was nice being able to walk around barefoot without getting tar stuck all over my piggies.
It was nice seeing so many bike riders and busses in chicago. I got my first taste of rush hour traffic. No thank you.
Stephen, rosie's husband, made us the most amazing burrito I have ever had - he threw in some pinneapple sause (influenced from his employment at a chinese restraunt, presumably), with squash, carrots, corn, celery, avacado, black beans, potatoes... more than I could list. Followed by cherry icecream and fresh strawberries. I felt spoiled over there, that is for sure.
After, we went out for a drink and I had my first beer with 8% alcohol. It was yummy but I don't remember the name.. or the name of the bar. It was retro themed and seemed to have a good autmosphere, although the music was waay too loud.
Overall chicago was a much needed escape from the world. Rosie and stephen were great hosts!
Today started with amazing tea and eggs, followed by a rough start to my radio show, and a very relaxing drive through indiana and ohio.
This trip is already helping me clear my head, I have had the needed alone time to think, reflect, and just be.
Tonight I plan to do some more fusion center research, get some of my thoughts on paper and enjoy the company of one of my old cali friends, and one of the most KIND people I know, chris, in his hometown of akron, oh.
Tomorrow I drive to ithica, ny where I plan to camp, and Thursday I arrive in nh to pick up tracy and head to Porcfest!!!!
If I have not told you lately: I love you <3

Subject: Day 2 on the road.
I didn't mean to hit "send so quickly on the last post. Alas, I am all thumbs while driving :) the attached photo is of my dog eddie enjoying the open illinois air. He'll have his head out that window most of the way to new hampshire!!
I left a bit later than anticipated today.. a minor bang trim turned onto an hour long debockle in front of the mirror with a pair of sissors. Hopefully my hair does not look too bad ;)
I am going to attempt to do my radio show via cellphone while driving all week. We'll see how it goes today. Tune in at www.revolutionbroadcasting.com.
Today I will stay in chicago with my love, rosie, and her darling husband. I know them from living in santa barbara. I am so excited to see them both again. If you are in the chicago area and want to meet up or buy an lrp shirt (and help a girl earn that gas money out to porcfest) shoot me a text at 816.868.8806 <3
Love you all and sorry for the spelling. No spell check on my phone! (Spelling is not my strong suit)
<3 peace. Catherine

Monday, June 8, 2009
The past two weeks have been relatively quiet for me, in comparison. I have been going through the motions so to speak while pondering my future and what I REALLY want from life... I have been debating the life choices I have recently made and re-exploring the path I am currently following.... Reflection, meditation, thinking, mulling, considering. It is absolutely insane to think I was laid off nearly six months ago. What a blessing that sudden shock has been to my life. I have found the time and energy to plow forward in a way unlike ever before, I have found a way to survive on basically nothing, and built relationships that have changed my life in very positive ways. But the question remains: at what cost? Friends have basically fallen by the wayside, I rarely keep up with my family, eating and bills are a constant lingering question, and my graduate studies have.... well.... ceased at this point. Not to mention the constant obstacles presented by assumed allies. Boy have I learned a lot these past 2 years.
I have come to the end of my introspective study with the conclusion that there is nothing else in the world I would rather pour my time and energy into. The flickering images of having my own family, a house, a farm, friends and stability are not worth dreaming of if we are not free. So with that being said, sometimes one needs a break and I know I need one soon. More than a "going through the motions" type of break, but a no cell phone, no internet, NO RevolUTION for a week... or two, kind of break. But that will have to come later this summer. I'm thinking Hawaii, what do you think?
I have explored my current initiatives during the past two weeks and I am certain I will be focusing my energy on projects that provide quantifiable results this this summer/fall.
LRP Liberty House - allowing full time volunteers to channel much needed energy into our movement. (www.libertyrestorationproject.org/house)
Midwest Liberty Fest - Bringing the grassroots from the "right" and the "left" in a weekend of education, celebration, camping and more! (www.midwestlibertyfest.com)
Retake Your State - Working to fill in the gaps in the state legislature and educating current legislators on the 10th amendment (www.retakeyourstate.com)
Continental Congress 2009 - Brining liberty lovers together to discuss solutions to the MONSTROUS problems our country faces. (www.givemeliberty.org )
Revolution Broadcasting - brining liberty to your ears. By the grassroots, for the grassroots. (www.revolutionbroadcasting.com)
Let me know if you want to be involved with any of the above listed projects!
