Just a quick reminder that we will give a presentation about our cross Canada trip in an electric car with camping trailer during the Sustainability Showcase Event at the Royal BC Museum, Victoria BC, Lecture Room, on April 22, 11am – noon.

We will also show our car and camping trailer during this event right in front of the Museum’s entrance from 10am – 5pm.
