***** Lol. I'm on the road. 6 in the morning my chain snapped. 4 miles out of town, territory I'm unfamiliar with. Inauspicious beginning. The whole idea of this two-week venture, DC to Philadelphia to depart Saturday on a 10-day March, democracy spring.org, back to DC for a week of Civil Disobedience including arrests, to get money out of politics, and to contribute energy toward the revolution that may be starting around the Sanders campaign that I fully support... the whole idea did not occur until midday yesterday. For a month or more I have been aware of democracy spring.org's plan  but discounted it at the time  as a distraction from  electing Sanders.  I now see it as contributing energy toward the Sanders related Revolution. And I have some fantasy on this slow March back to DC of doing constant phone banking. I'll have sufficient electricity and at walking speed I think I'll have the concentration to do it.  I'll also maybe encourage others to do the same and I'll have plenty of electricity to support others in the effort as well with their cell phones. I spent the afternoon at a bike shop among other things getting the long chain tightened. Other work done as well. The vehicle is running well. I suspect that given the weight of this vehicle that every 2,000 miles or so, and that's what I've put on since July, the chain needs to be replaced. I'm stopped at a Starbucks. In College Park Maryland. There is a bike shop 2 blocks away that opens at 10. I suspect that I'll spend some time in the Starbucks and some time snoozing in the vehicle. I got 3 hours sleep last night, my mind whirring, contemplating what I needed to pack and various aspects of the trip until well after 1 in the morning. I got up at 4 and was on the road by 5:30. My urgent email and Facebook message to the organizers of this thing to see if unexpectedly they object to the idea of my vehicle making the march, I have heard no reply which is a bit disconcerting but I'll press on anyway. Assuming that I can get this chain repaired or replaced.
Ps. I'm sitting in the Starbucks and a fellow a little younger than me comes over, were you on K Street in Washington yesterday? Before answering yes, he had his cell phone where I could see it showing me the picture he had taken of the vehicle yesterday.
