    Here's a guy on a journey to visit forty-eight states in a Nissan Leaf! And he's planting a tree every 250 miles to offset his carbon impact.
    He's having a tough time so far - some of the Chademo stations he planned to visit have been closed or offline.

    What's better than one EV in your Garage? How about Two! Please google " negative carbon road trip ". Brian Kent started driving his Nisson Leaf in New York and charged in my garage today on his way to driving to all lower 48 states,where he is planting trees everywhere he goes. Most people don't think that a Leaf can be a Long distance traveler, Brian is proving other wise. I honor this man for doing what's never been done. He's such a good guy, we became instant friends. We shared EV stories and experience and I invited him drive the Model S long enough that maybe next year he'll do it again, next time in a Tesla! Blessings on your Journey my new EV friend.

    Brian Kent says, That's a post-Tesla grin, not a plain old EV grin.

    Bravo! Brian and his Negative Carbon Road Trip is an inspiration to us all!

    Love to see this kind of thing here. Trying to save the planet, not whining about what they were promised and didn't get.

    Brian got to our place around 7pm last night. We contributed to his "negative carbon" by charging him with Texas solar power!
