And I hope all is well solar buddy!! Jay sent me a panel site.. need to check it out... the tesla jim.. i really don't think is an 'ownership" experience unless you have the coin to buy it flat out cash... even if I got approved.. I'd probably trade it in in 3 years for the residual and buy another ... by then the miles per charge could be in the 500's... It's like the panels... yes they went down in cost by 50%.. but that took 4 years... 4 years my system has been returning in aces... that's a long time to wait.. for such a positive step forwards.. just like the tesla... I could wait 3 years.. the incentives will be gone... and the car may not be any cheaper in it's form.. yes maybe in a $35 K form... but not to compete with BMW's and high end mercedes... good night.. safe travels... and try to keep that high brow kat outta trouble... joe

Jimmy!! we snagged a cool 25 today.... hope you guys something.. lots of clouds still but hey 25 is better than 24 other numbers right? I am thankful I had the determination to still go for the solar pv even after the state totally back out of any incentives that my original dealer applied for during the estimate phase.. i was so red.. that I said "dam the torpedoes!1 Now NOTHING will stop me... Thank God I stuck to my guns.. I'll NEVER tire of posting $2.52 power bills.. though I'm sure the disillusioned here think I need fake them with photo shop perhaps? I bought new Christmas Lights.. LED's .. drill got me around to it.. I took my system from a 1600 watt draw... to about 225 watts +/-.. should be a real sight to behold.. looking forward to it... still hashing the tesla.. no test drive due to good weather!! I need bad... the worse the better!! I have no issues driving one of my hondas there.. the tesla shouldn't have any either right?? We'll see...

Jimbo... getting hammered again!! we managed 10 yesterday.. truly a gift considering the deluge.. coming your way now.. break out that umbrella and tell sir catsworth to take cover!!! hahahah joe

Jim.. I am very interested.. next test drive is early Wednesday morning.. it's supposed to be wet and rainy... the rear wheel is independent dual drive... but the awd IS the ONLY way to go... more stick than velcro on a hot day.... we'll see... heheheheh joe

Having a few options in the driveway to choose from is never a bad idea.. unless one is a hummer!.. flat spots in the tires from sitting....

GM, have you noted how far gas prices have fallen... I'm betting this has to do with the fact we've been getting ripped off for over two years.. the worst part.. is they're polluting us... and we're polluting each other... in my case jim.. it's NOT just the cost.. but the purpose.. the Indian nation lived in harmony with the land for 1000's of years.. and the land ONLY changed itself... the lawless, ruthless, white man comes in.. tells them to get off the land, and digs a coal mine or some other disruptive operation.. and ruins the land, water, and air in the process... that is NOT progress... progress is living the life one wants to lead.. but having no impact upon others or the planet.. the closer one gets to that.. the closer I can feel to the Almighty... and my leader tells me to do so... in His name..and for the sake of others.. I'm not incredibly religious.. but I heard this one with my own two ears!!

the volt just doesn't do it for me... it's great.. but it still burns fuel. and I already have the acura hybrid.. got more room.. rides smooth... 40 giig hd disc drive ...that's been pulling decent numbers in the 39-41 mpg range.. and I tell you.. that's a great ride compared to the comfort level of the civic.. i will try to gt my stubborn gf to take it... or I will trade that in.. I paid that off a few months ago...

oh .. see they all changed... I got tired looking at the same scene.. I thought just the new ones would change.. oh well.. enjoy this one for a bit!!

by Joeski1  Oct 10, 2014

you gotta see where this really could lead... but it takes the vision.. and apparently some coin too!! .. is it worth it to be almost absolutely clean?? think of it.. clean.. cut my contribution to the bigger problem by 95% or more in a flash... man does THAT make me feel excited!! ALMOST AS MUCH AS DRIVING IT!!! oooopppps...
