We made it! After a week driving from Channel-Port aux Basques to St. John’s, we arrived at our final destination: Thanks to Jon Seary and his family, we got a convoy to Mile Zero where we were welcomed by Deputy Mayor Ron Ellsworth.
On September 6, we had our final official meet up of this trip at the Signal Hill Visitor Centre. We finished our cross Canada trip in an electric car with camping trailer after three months and 15,000 fully electric kilometres.
Thanks so very much to Green Rock EVS, local EV owners and the Deputy Mayor for joining us that morning. We were especially honoured to be welcomed by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Hon. Perry Trimper. A big thank you also goes to CBC for doing an interview with us.
Of course, Rolf and I did not only make it all the way up on Signal Hill, we also made it all the way East to Cape Spear, the Eastern-most point of North-America!
Thank you so much, Jon, for everything you guys have done for us. It was wonderful getting to know you, Adrienne and your family! We hope we will see you all again soon! By the way, good taste in cars… 😉
Enjoying a wonderful lunch at Mallard Cottage, a must visit when in St. John’s!
Enjoying Gros Morne National Park and impressions of Newfoundland. We fell in love with this place instantly and plan to be back!
While our ‘official’ trip is over, we can’t seem to stop doing what we’ve been doing the past 3 months 😉 We had a few very interesting days in Halifax, to say the least, which ended with the first Halifax NS National Drive Electric Week event. Rolf will be working on more videos and there will be more blog posts as well. So stay tuned, visit our YouTube Channel, join us on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and, please, share our story. Our mission was (and is!) to raise awareness and inspire others to switch to sustainable energy and transportation. We’ve shown what can be done.already.today! Now it’s up to you to share our story with others. The more people we can reach, the better.
And if we inspired you, please do let us know. It is important to us and we would love to share your story on our media platforms!
Thank you! from Rolf, Silke & Kye
