A broken trailer and a flat tyre in Davis13.07.2008

Picture of the day

What a great ride across the Redwoods and Northern California. Friendly and very helpful people, great weather and touring with test pilot Heinz Gubler on board made it a unique experence. Only the very hilly scenery and the smoke from the forest fires made it a bit challenging. But suddenly, when we finally arrived in Davis, waiting on the parking lot, our trailer shaft broke and punctured the rear wheel. We were lucky this didn'h happen at a speeed of 50 mph somewhere between elks, bears and bush fires. Heinz and our great local hosts Eugen and Bruce took care of this immediately, so we could exhibit the car as planned in davis and Sacramento.

Will this car be available on the market? Or are you willing to share how you built it? The oil companies own the U.S. government and being a U.S. citizen we will never have the opportunity to buy one of these unless some one else develops it and sells it here in the U.S.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Guys, it was a genuine "Sternstunde" to experience the solar taxi rolling into Davis late Friday July 11. Good luck with the rest of the journey. Very special evening with all those adventure stories from Louis. Thanks much.
