I went to the Bayside Grange breakfast this morning. If you haven’t been this is a fun community event with good eats! But today they had an exhibit of electric vehicles from the Humboldt Electric Vehicle Association. There was quite a line-up of vehicles from what looked like a completey fabricated hot rod (built for speed, not efficiencny) to conversions (a couple of VW bugs and other cars) to a recumbant pedal machine with an electric motor. Pushing the edges of DIY technology, some of these things looked like rolling explosions. But I’m sure they are all safe. I saw no tow trucks that could have hauled them there. A great way to spend a sunny morning and experience the essence of Humboldt County.
