Back to the Future
Dear Supporters :Posted on Dec 12, 2012
The time has come to redirect A Vehicle for Change - Back to the future...
The not-for-profit world is not working for me, because I don't do well standing on the street corner asking for handouts - and to be completely honest, imho - the world needs fewer non-profit organizations and more considerate neighbors.
I like to
MAKE good things happen -
and based on my 50+ years of life experience
(there - I said it - I'm OVER 50 and PROUD of it)
that has always started with
Have a Very Happy Holiday and a Prosperous and CONSCIOUS New Year!

For those of us involved in the fight to stop the automaker’s practice of removing working electric vehicles from the road, Doug was always there, working late night shifts and volunteering to help with most any task."

Action Track Chair : A Vehicle for Change
What an amazing invention! This chair has no problem traversing over bumps in the road, gravel, etc. - in fact, it actually seems to ride better on the rough spots than on a smooth surface. I had a chance to try it out yesterday. If you know someone in the Marin County area who is bound to a wheel chair, I highly recommend they give it a whirl while Don Swenson, the West Coast rep, is in town. He leaves on Friday.Posted on Nov 23, 2011
