Busy couple of days... The EV Expo was today, and the ForkenSwift received first "Honorable Mention" per crowd votes.

The home made tow bar worked like a charm.

Set up one of those tent/awnings over the front of the car - hood open - and answered questions all day long.

Also accomplished 3 items off my list of things I've been wanting to do:

1) had a very short ride in a brand new GoOne (electric assist - which I didn't engage)

2) got a ride in the oldest operational Milburn electric (1915). Too cool for words. This actual car:



3) rode around on a professionally built tadpole trike.

On returning home, I installed the "new" used batteries in the FS (we took the forklift co. batts out to save the weight for towing). They're charging... tomorrow I'll see how much more capacity they have...

I've been pretty scarce around GS lately, spending a lot of time preparing for today, among other stuff. Should be able to catch up this week.
