Thanks allot for the well written Blog. I love Canada & usually vacation in the North Channel each year. I've been thinking of a trip around the lake in Rocket2. if I do, I'll let you take it for a spin.
I've never sailed in the North Channel, but have relatives with a cottage near Point au Baril. Beautiful, beautiful country.

If you ever do take this or your next trike into this neck of the woods, please let me know! I'd love to have a closer look.

Too bad eBay didn't generate any bids. Quite a few other sites picked up the EM blog post: Jalopnik, Treehugger, and a Gas 2.0 version just went popular on Digg about half an hour ago. And you probably got e-mail today from a Popular Mechanics (Science?) reporter who asked me about you.
