Room for one!

Are you seriously considering going to D.C.? We have room for one more passenger - and as many other vehicles that want to come.

Consider this!

If you come with us, you will have a cozy place to sleep, access to a fridge and stove, fabulous activist comradery.

You will need to provide your own food (altho we will have food to share). You can contribute to expenses if you are willing and able. No one will be turned away for lack of travel money.

If you come with us, you will be able to witness the amazing beauty and diversity of this land.

But best of all, if you come with us, you will be able to spread the words across the country, that we are standing for the end of U.S. wars, that we are urging people to come with us.

And that we say NO DRONES!

We expect everyone to be responsible for her own basic needs, and we will work together to ensure we are a cohesive team as we forge yet another Trail of TORA across the country.

We are leaving early Wednesday morning. Here is our firming up schedule and route:

9/28 Berkeley to Palm Springs
9/29 Palm Springs to Phoenix & Tucson
9/30 Tucson to Las Cruces, NM
9/30 Las Cruces to El Paso
