Hi Folks,

I'm wondering if anyone in the SF Bay area would be willing to meet
up with a friend of mine who is looking to get some video footage and/
or first hand EV experience for a project that she's agreed to help
me with which is taking place in July 2008 in the UK.

The project is going to take the form of a UK run from John-O-Groats
to Land's End, the most northerly to the most southerly point in
mainland UK. We're not going to be going direct, and the project is
going to involve as many commercially available EVs as possible.
She's going to be visiting me in the UK in November to get some
filming done here as well, but the aim is to produce a promotional
video which we'll use during the event, which we've named "EV-
JogLe" (http://www.ev-jogle.com). The whole aim of the project is to
educate those outside of London about EVs and to give people a chance
to see, experience and drive EVs for the first time at events which
we'll hold throughout the three week run. We could do the distance in
three days, but that'd be pointless as it wouldn't give us quite so
much publicity. Email me for more info anyway!


Amy if a friend of mine from SF and has agreed to take on this
project as film-woman and web tecchie. She's always had to hear me
going on about my positive EV experiences and has visited us in the
past, so has some limited EV exposure. If anyone in the bay area
would be willing to meet with her and let her get some first hand EV
experience I'd be delighted. She'd like to get as up to speed as
possible on what's going on in her local area so that come next year
she's a real EVangelist ;) Perhaps people can email me off list?
She's experienced electric bikes and scooters before, but needs to
experience some larger stuff! All types of EVs would be welcome too! :)


You can either email me at the above address, or at nikki{at}ev-
jogle.com

Thanks!

Nikki.

Hi Nikki,

There are 6 EAA chapters in the Bay Area that meet once a month,
so at just about every Sat morning your friend will be able to
see a whole bunch of EVs and probably get a ride in them as well,
if she is OK with travelling around the Bay Area.
In addition there may be individuals that can offer a ride, I
would be happy to show off my S10 US Electricar if she can take
the train from SF to Sunnyvale.

For the chapters, go to eaaev.org and click on the chapters to
get a list:
http://eaaev.org/eaachapters.html#CALIFORNIA
You will see that the first Sat of the month the San Francisco
chapters meet, the 2nd the North Bay and the San Jose chapter,
the 3rd the Silicon Valley (South Bay) and the 4th Sat the
East Bay chapter. Only Sat Sept 29 (the 5th Sat this month)
there will be no chapter meeting.
I cannot guarantee that all chapters are meeting as announced,
so the best thing for your friend is to contact them and ask
how many EVs attend, where and when they meet and if she can
get a ride.

BTW, one of my other visitors was very underwelmed by the demo
of a trip in my S10 truck, he said: this feels like any other
S10 truck only with the absence of noise.
Exactly, that is how an EV can be 'just a regular car'.

Success,

He probably expected it to take off like a Blade Runner hovercar.

not at all (I think I was the 'other visitor') and I was actually impressed
by the ride quality. Keep in mind that it was my first EV ride ever! :)

Cor,

Thanks very much. This is just what we need. :)

I'll pass on these details to her, and hopefully she can get in
contact! :)

Nikki.

Haha,
Correct Eduardo: I was taking your words out of context to make
a point, that most EVs should drive like any other regular car.

Thanks again for the friendly visit and interesting chat,
it did not feel as if you brought us happiness twice ;-)
(Inside joke: once when coming; once when leaving)

All,
I had this same response to my daily driver, floody powered truck, then we took a tire smoking spin in the Orb powered car!
