ELAW, Eugene, Or.

We are back on the road again. After what seemed an endless sedentary respite of work and more work I finally sat behind the wheel of the new Permibus to do more than drive from one place to another. The 2009 tour has begun.
We left Missoula under the threat of winter storm watches and warnings. Global can be whatever it is, this was typical Montana winter road conditions, bad. The bus performed well however and in just 14 hours we arrived at the University of Oregon in Eugene for ELAW, our first gig of the new tour.
ELAW has never had a permaculture panel before. The university has probably never had chickens on its lawn before. Both are desperately needed. Environmentalism needs to move beyond stopping things and instead start beginning things. The U of O lawn is a drab well maintain moncultural landscape. Both need new, organic fertilizer. It’s part of our role as the Skills Tour to provide the chickens for the lawn and fertilizer for environmentalism.
We’re not sure where we go next. That will come in time. For now it is just good to be behind the wheel of the Permibus and on the road.
