    Met this interesting retired engineer at a ribbon cutting event for the installation of chargepoints at SRQ airport and took some pics. Funny to see his truck in the lot with my Roadster and a Fisker Karma, but very inspiring!:

    If it weren't for "trailblazers" like that, I don't think EVs would have had a resurgence. Those kind of things kept the "embers alive" in the "lean years."

    Yes, thank you sir, Mr. anonymous retired engineer. Your dogged persistence in driving electric and keeping the flame alive are a true inspiration. Thanks to the many like you that showed there is a smart insistent market for EV's.
