I laughed at "the wet bits between the islands"

I would be willing to venture out there for an economy run or even just a meet/ greet.

Jan 5 is no good for me.
The rest of the days are. Sundays I am busy mornings/early afternoons, but late afternoon onward is good.
Evenings in the following weeks are good as well (except Thursdays):
Jan 2-4, Jan 7-11, Jan 28-Feb 1.

Bump!

I heard from War_Wagon via PM as well, then he disappeared.

More Vancouver eco-car sightings: saw my first Nissan Leaf in the wild a couple of days ago.

flying k: haven't seen any electric vans yet, but I keep my eyes open.

Spotted another rare eco-beastie this morning though, Firefly Turbo. Started a new thread for people to post sightings:

Vancouver Meet-up

It would be great to meet up.
I just joined Ecomodder, and am trying to improve the fuel efficiency on my Honda Odyssey minivan. When in January will we do it?

More the merrier!

For a get-together we were looking at one of:

Jan 6 - Sun
Jan 20 - Sun
Jan 26 - Sat
Jan 27 - Sun

I'm still available for any of those.

I'd also be happy to meet with you on your own if you want to go out for an "ecodriving session" in your Odyssey. Guess what I've been driving while in Vancouver?

Does yours have cylinder deactivation?

I'm still good for all of those days except the 6th because that was yesterday.
The VEVA meeting is this Wednesday. Their website (veva.bc.ca) says the location is TBA. I am not sure I can make it with my shift but I will let you know.

eBooger extravaganza today

Today I went over to Surrey to meet James (mechman600), builder of the eBooger!

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...zda-22478.html



(Note the carbon fibre hood upgrade.)

It was great to get a full tour of the car after watching it come together in his build thread. Got a ride too and some good conversation. Beats the snot out of the ForkenSwift!

In my travels today I even braved crossing the new Killer Bridge! (Port Mann):



Fortunately, no "ice bombs" smashed my car!

My Internet says it's on the 16th. :P A week this Weds. I think I'll cross-post in the Fossil Fuel Free section, since we might have some EV-only local members reading there.
