I write from I-81 South about to cross the PA border into Maryland enroute to the Friends General Conference (FGC) in Virginia, the annual gathering of a bunch of North American Quakers. I travel with Johanna & Kody–birthright Friends (born into Quaker homes, while I am considered a convinced Friend, born non-Quaker but later convinced that I felt most at home among Friends). Kody and I will co-lead a workshop called Radical Quakerism for a Rising Generation 18. High School age to early 20 somethings Friends will join us to consider how to integrate Quakerism into their adult lives (and IF they actually wish to do so).
I also will hang with the large and diverse queer Quaker group–the FLGBTQC.
The FGC event is a little like going to Narnia, an altetnate reality where they do folk dancing, discuss global warming and sit around quietly waiting for something to happen, or not.
Since Kody is also vegan and I stopped at an Amish farm stand earlier today, we have some kick-butt snacks.
Do you have any favorite roadtrip snacks?
