Doing Our Part

I didn't have time to include this when I checked in from the hotel Wednesday afternoon because we really needed to go get me fed, but before we turn in for the night, Lisa suggested I post this photo because I'm unlikely to remember to do so later. On the way south from Atascadero, we made a brief stop at the Gaviota Rest Area on US-101, stretching our legs and admiring the stark views of the rocks looming over the highway. Lisa took a picture of Kuma Bear and me showing off the sign we posted in the rear window.


Lisa had suggested I make this sign, which I did for this trip. Yes, sure, we were driving in large part because have to transport a van full of stuff; however, Lisa noted that if there really was a proper High-Speed Rail system here, we probably would have taken the train and shipped our stuff ahead to meet us instead. Anyway, we hope people could see our sign of support and that we might get people thinking favorable thoughts about the project.

I'll keep that sign in the back once I get back, but I hope it doesn't get my window bashed in by the NIMBYs on the Peninsula, particularly the ones who voted for HSR but who now don't want it because they assumed that they'd only run the tracks Somewhere Else. (After all, you can only be Green if you make Other People sacrifice for you.)
