…and by DONE I mean, WE’RE DONE! The hardcover came in and it’s just where I want it. I’m placing the Kickstarter orders tomorrow, and should have everything in hand […]
It’s been a long haul, and I can’t really believe I’m at this point. I just reviewed the last, final FINAL look-through by Aaron, made the changes, and re-checked the […]
Plugging along – I added some details as well as a third appendix, and am just chillin’ waiting for my editor to take a last look before we go to […]
The proof came in this morning, just in time for a snow day! …and yes, it needs some changes, but that’s what proofs are for, isn’t it?

Sportin’ the CALB pack donated by Mike Corbin, and refitted with an actual speed controller from Alltrax, the 1974 Corbin XLP-1 made it all the way to the summit of […]
Yeah, you read that right. Alltrax is launching a new series of controllers, and guess what, bitches… I HAVE ONE. This is the SR series, specifically, the SR48600, which means 48V, […]
Here it is – after a few short hours at the garage on a Sunday morning, the old gal has juice again, courtesy of the CALBs that Mike Corbin donated […]

OK kids – a fun little side-project has come up! Here’s the first glimpse – stay tuned for the full story.
I’m fairly convinced, in spite of the fact that everybody’s using Leaf packs these days, that the Chevy Volt packs are the cat’s ass. The packs, with the cooling stuff […]
