Good morning Things are slightly panicky here, with me off to Britain on Monday for our Grand Tour of Great Britain.  This will be the biggest and most complicated tour we’ve ever done, covering more distance, staying at more places, and seeing more things, than ever before.  Happily it is with a great group of […]

What If I Drove to Montana in a Tesla

I’m as keen a convert to electric cars as anyone could ever be, when it comes to driving them locally around town, in situations where each day you’ll never exceed their built-in range limit.  What could be easier than simply plugging the car into an at-home charger each evening when you get home, and unplugging/driving […]

Good morning Spring is in full fling, and I hope your summer, due to officially start in just a few weeks on Memorial Day, is shaping up to be a great one.  But, please, cast your mind a wee bit further ahead, for the early and late fall, too.  What are you doing then? How […]

Electric Car Sales :  A Tale of Hype and Hope

If ever there was a promising enormous revolution in passenger vehicle technologies, surely it must be that offered by electric power. An electrically powered vehicle offers huge benefits in a number of areas.  It is a more responsive and more fun car to drive – oh yes, and easier to drive as well.  It not […]

Good morning You may have seen the story of the woman killed by a self-driving car in Tempe, AZ on Sunday.  Any unnecessary death is of course regrettable, but the biggest tragedy of this unfortunate incident may be that this accident slows down and delays the continued development and deployment of self-driving vehicle capabilities. With […]

Good morning Our Frontsight experience was enjoyed by all who attended over the last weekend, and most of the participants plan to return for another experience in the future. While the men stoically plinked away, including one gentleman who refused to let his bad leg and cane interfere, I do want to call out the […]

Good morning First of all, a word about our touring schedule for the year.  We are starting to get down to the wire for the Triple K tour to Kiev, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan this May, so if you’re thinking of coming, please let me know. Also, strangely, this year there’s not yet a lot of […]

Good morning It was another interesting week, some of which is reported for you below.  In addition, I’m adding three stand-alone articles. One observes how Disney amusement park ticket prices have been going up at a rate averaging three times that of inflation for the last five years, and almost always, going back as far […]
