After our last show at the public library in Tracy, CA we ended our tour by packing all our gear, bikes, and selves into Lydia's VW Jetta for a ride back to the SF Bay area. Chelsea is off to another clinical rotation, Lydia will gypsy around for a few more weeks, doing freelance writing in coffeeshops, and Mike and I have a week to visit my father and fill in for a vacationing caregiver before we start the next leg of our journey.
We all felt the tour was a great success in reaching out to people who have heretofore not been part of the climate movement. The press coverage reached thousands of people with our message about the health benefits of climate action. And we are already thinking about a return trip to collaborate with new friends and contacts.
