Last weekend's Hempfest boasted 150,000 attendees, dozens of politcal and educational speakers, and thousands of glass pipes created for collectors and smokers of "organic combustibles."
But the most interesting smoking device on the grounds was Timm Dowden's 20-year-old red Ford Ranger. After coming out of his post-presidential election funk, Timm decided to "do something."
With determination, metal-working skills, and $300 he converted his Ranger to run on combustible gases routed to the engine from a wood-pellet burning gas generator welded to the truck's bed. The truck gets 40 miles from a $3.00, 40lb. bag, and can still run on gas.
