News from a phone call 10-25-05
On her way down to Mississippi, Alice rode with a a group of womyn called The Godmothers. They had a truck bearing donations from Michigan. As they approached the Gulf Coast, she said they saw few road signs and the trees are all gone. They reached Highway 10 and turned east, arriving at Waveland, Mississippi. She set up camp and joined with others from the Rainbow Family to help cook for people who have lost everything.
