I was a homebody for a time and I know how important it can be to use other means to get and stay in touch with people. I'm happy to see you logging in here to stay connected. What did you have in mind for penpalship? Would you like to correspond via email?
Precious life has some awesome accommodations for AR people. We could spend some time volunteering and, hopefully, make generous donations to cover our stay. I hope that a couple of my local friends will go with us. I'll ask around. Let's plan for late spring/early summer? Maybe end of may or early June?
I remember feeling so isolated and disconnected after moving and heartily empathize with you. I tried activist groups with no success in connecting with others for friendship. I've met the friends that I have now through word of mouth and asking for people to introduce me to other vegan people. I also enjoy very much frequenting vegan businesses in Seattle.

Those are some great choices. I will write to Precious Life to see what they would charge for an overnight. It's on my list of things to do. Id' really like to see my money go to support the animals and vegan outreach, if I can afford it. Did you have a time frame in mind of when you'd like to go?

I wonder if the sanctuary would allow a stay-over for a fee. Then the money would go to the expenses of caring for the animals. Ok, here's the link, but make sure you plan to go back with a group from happy cow (includ
I think daytrips or weekend trips would be great, too. The season for enjoying the parks is nearly over, though, so maybe we could plan to continue to seek a car full of interested people for next summer!
I'm not keen on hitchhiking and will need to get to know people here before taking on even the carpool.
A trip or two to volunteer at an Animal Sanctuary might also be a
Is anyone interested in a carpool to various National Parks? I'd love to see them. I have a pass good for 4 people or a carload, depending on the park, so that if someone else can drive, admission is taken care of.
Maybe we could take a few weekend trips to include a couple of parks at a time.
I live in the Pacific NW.
I'm especially interested in meeting people in the Pacific NW, and especially the Seattle area, who would like to get together to do AR oriented things. Other places you might find me for extended periods of time are the NE Iowa and SE Minnesota areas. I prefer vegan-only restaurants when I can find them because I like to give my business for people with the gumption to take a stand for th
