A Vehicle for Change

  • Wise Words...
    “If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it's not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” ― Dalai Lama XIV
  • Remember...
    “Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.” 
    ---- Dalai Lama

  • Plug In Movement Establishes Memorial Fund for Doug Korthof
    "Doug Korthof was a passionate advocate for plug-in vehicles, who worked tirelessly to educate anyone who would listen about the benefits of electric drive. 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."

    This looks like a fun event, so we thought we'd share:
    Adopt-A-Charger and the National Park Conservation Association for the Inaugural Ribbon Cutting of the first "Adopt a Charger" at Crissy Field in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
    The Plug-In Vehicle charger installation is tied to a solar array and wind turbine installation, and  Jonathan Jarvis, the Director of the National Park Service, will be in town from Washington DCfor this event.

    Date: February 15, 2012 Time: 12:30 PM
    Location: Crissy Field Center, 1199 East Beach, Presidio, San Francisco, CA 94129

    Adopt-a-Charger would love to have a good showing of electric vehicles at this event to support fee-free accessible public charging.
    If you will be able to bring an electric vehicle please email Kitty at kitty.adams@adoptacharger.org
    Tell her "a vehicle for change sent me!"

    Coolest car charger EVER!
    Shaped like a leaf, it doubles as an LED street light and has a fold down bench. Super Smart. Great for places that have replaced all their REAL trees with fake things and concrete...

  • 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.
