Seattle to Denver - anything helps

Postby barterbirds » Tue Aug 12, 2008 7:08 pm

Our story and our request… Two friends who could barely change our oil a year ago took on the challenge of Veggie Oil-converting and completely gutting an RV, the now affectionately named "Ava," in order to document a trip across the country about living on the barter system.

We had budgeted three weeks for the preparation and conversion. Five months later we are ready to go. As with anything, the curveballs (and the laughter) have been constant and abundant. At this point in the game, we were supposed to have an on board filtration system to be able to collect and filter oil to get across the country from our starting point in Seattle. We need to be in Denver in less than one week, we need to find clean oil to get Ava there, and we have two days to find it. Anything at all would be appreciated more than we can express.

We are all about bartering, finding ways to meet needs that we can, and exchanging whatever we can offer. We recognize that oil is becoming more and more of a commodity. We are not freeloaders, we just have found ourselves in a bit of a dilemma, truly testing what we set out to explore. We give many thanks!

'87F-250 stock, minus that pesky water seporator/air inlet, bone stock for now.
