Our chaotic 1st Electric Week

Victoria BC to Valemount BC

What a week! My life has rarely been this chaotic. After a marvelous Send-Off from Mile Zero including two TV interviews (Thank you, CTV and CHEK!) and a beautifully quiet electric car convoy to the ferry, we spent some time with family in Vancouver BC. I had ‘reserved’ two days just in case the Vancouver media would be interested in our 100% electric adventure as well, but it wasn’t so; maybe a good thing, since Rolf and I were really sick with a cold. Regardless, we went to the Tesla Social on Sunday and also showed our car in Panorama Park, Deep Cove/North Vancouver the same day. Thank you, Bruce, for joining us with your Model S for this impromptu Vancouver EV Association Show & Tell!

Send-off 1

Rolf’s and my first ever TV interview during Send-Off at Mile Zero, Victoria BC

On Wednesday, we drove to Chilliwack to stay with friends from Rolf’s model glider days. Arend was world champion in F3J glider competition two times and Rolf managed a bronze medal for Canada with Arend’s help a few years back. That evening, Arend enjoyed flying our drone instead. Our visit led to a very interesting talk with Arend’s friend and neighbour, who uses a windmill to power his airtools. Rolf took a video, so I won’t go much into it. Now Rolf just needs to find the time for the video editing, but he’s busy with our ‘Clearwater weekend’, so who knows when he gets to it. Time is something we didn’t have much this first week. We’re already way behind with documenting… You can either be social in person or social online, but we haven’t found a way to combine the two yet. It’s all pretty new to us! Did I mention chaotic?! 😉

After Chilliwack, we enjoyed an evening with Andy, Jody, David, Jamie and little Duncan in Kamloops, before another Meet-up at the Kamloops Supercharger the next morning, for which CBC joint us for an interview, and continuing on to Clearwater. (Thank you, CBC!)
