There they go talking about my weight again. Which is impressive, if you’re a car, really. And even more impressive when we’re talking about tons of CO2 not going out into the atmosphere. More later, x LV
p.s. I love it when my driver says things like “LV is running beautifully” — I am trying so hard to please him, and my team, as we travel across this great big country. It’s showtime! Where are my sunglasses?
Thomas Edison. One of my favorite quotes.
The only rules we’re following right now are the rules of the road, friends. Because we’re on the road at last. x LV
The earth expanding right hand and left hand,
The picture alive, every part in its best light,
The music falling in where it is wanted, and stopping where it is not wanted,
The cheerful voice of the public road, the gay fresh sentiment of the road.
O highway I travel, do you say to me Do not leave me?
Do you say Venture not—if you leave me you are lost?
Do you say I am already prepared, I am well-beaten and undenied, adhere to me?
O public road, I say back I am not afraid to leave you, yet I love you,
You express me better than I can express myself,
You shall be more to me than my poem.
I checked out Imperial Sand Dunes in Southern California and found America at play. Folks who like dust and internal combustion engines. As I sat idling silently, all around me dune buggies and dirt bikes whizzed past, patrolling the dunes. Looks like fun, but I think I’ll stick to cruising the blacktop.
Did you know that my onboard generator helps make me a long range cruiser that runs clean on cellulosic ethanol?
