    I never for a moment imagined somebody would do it in anything other than a Tesla. I admire the sheer perseverance this will take.

    Yes, in a Leaf! He posted a copy of his schedule for Sydney to Perth. A couple of the nullarbor gaps include bringing a generator with him! (I assume on a support vehicle!)

    And a final post to wrap up this happy story ...

    Back home to NETS after much awareness raising and encouraging of donations !

    Did you know that Jeff's East-West walk across Australia was for NETS and he raised $80K which was enough for an ambulance (excl fitout) !

    Have a look. The Leaf's inverter is designed to look like an engine block!

    Jeff is the one with the red and black T shirt.

    NETS is a great organisation - really a children's intensive care unit without walls spanning the whole state and at times the world ! 4 ambulances, 2 helicopters, heaps of AC and DC charging equipment to connect to mains, military, civilian, aviation and foreign power sources. A super dedicated team. I see why Jeff was so committed !
