For the past 42 years UC Davis has held the Whole Earth Festival. It's an annual, weekend long event about 25 miles away from us. We went Saturday and saw Clan Dyken, walked around the vendor area (where we were motivated to make leather shoes and sew), ate, and became entranced by the drum circle and kept being pulled back to it. The whole event screams peace, freedom, love and makes me wish every day was a Whole Earth Festival.
I've been working on a new cargo bike in my spare time. This one is built from two mountain bike frames, a broken pressure washer (the cargo platform), some new steel, and some scrap steel. I'm not happy with a few small things but overall its turning out pretty cool. I plan on using this for rolling advertisement for Carsick Designs. The bicycle film festival makes a stop here in a week and I'm hoping to have it on the road by then.
