This sounds great. I'd take my own personal robo-chauffeur to drive me places while I goof around on the net in a heartbeat. It's the half-measure of installing GPS monitoring in cars to track and...

Thanks for sharing your ride. How great it is to be able to do that trip with family, looks like a great experience. It's a shame about the crash- everything was pretty much perfect until that point....

So, from all this mess, these are the conclusions I've arrived at:

I saw these things in person at the Tampa auto show. They look like a battery pack with a seat on top, oh, and some wheels bolted to it. Not very impressive to look at. The rep claimed 30hp...

Haha, I never said that I outright learned my lesson. I phrased that as a question, to which you can arrive at your own answer. My answer is "for the most part". What I really learned is what the...

Wow, great RR. With all of the (mostly negative) media attention on the industrialization and urbanization of China it's nice to see another side of the country still exists. Thanks for the report....
