To get my ELF to cover 20-30 miles on a charge I run it at about 15 MPH instead of full speed at 22+_. I also pedal but not super hard and that makes it seem to go forever. I have a free website where many owners share how they drive and other mods on the ELF. check our site www.ELFowners.webs.com
I am confused about lisa sorg's statement that she will 'do the full 22 mile round trip' on the american tobacco trail. My recollection is that 22 miles wold be a 'one way' trip, and my experience is that it would be a real stretch to hike the 44 mile round trip each weekend.
One of us is confused, i guess.
One of the many pieces of good work Erin does. Very well-deserved!
It's a miracle that the North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence was created, another miracle that it has survived the ongoing wave of legislative vandalism.... Thank you, Christine Mumma....A case that may not be on her list but deserves to be:
I voluntarily chose the triangle as my home 14 years ago and never looked back. It has welcomed me with open arms and shows me everyday that this is the place to be.
I grew-up near Scranton, Pennsylvania, and lived there until my 30s.
I moved to the Triangle in 2008 and Durham specifically in 2009.
By 2010 I could honestly say, "this is more 'home' to me than Scranton ever was." I still feel that way.
Thanks so much!
Attend just *one* CAN meeting to feel newly optimistic about the ability of community engagement to activate change. Thanks to CAN's many partners & participants.
Congratulations Erin! The dream is becoming reality everyday. I am honored to be apart of this fantastic cooperative! FERTILE GROUND FOOD COOPERATIVE IN SOUTHEAST RALEIGH!
Congratulations and good luck to Erin Byrd and her colleagues. Another small piece of the struggle to overcome food deserts is being accomplished by Alan Muskat and his Afikomen Project. He teaches an after school program at several elementary schools in Asheville. There the kids learn to identify the most common high dollar mushrooms and edible plants in their area. This is a safe skill that allows kids to put healthy food on the table and perhaps even learn to sell foraged crops to local chefs and develop their entrepreneurial skills.

The role of self-taught, independent artists in modern art is growing, as recognized in the article, and on resources like this site, and this blog:

Jiminy StAck--Great to hear about your Elf. However, can you please elaborate on how with the Elf's 14 mile range you go "20-30 mile trips and commute 22 miles" Are you peddling hard, running out of juice, stopping to recharge?? SUP with all that?
Thanks for info.
It's ignorant to assume that Sevin dust was the cause of your dog's illness. To blame your neighbor is also ignorant and rude. You have no PROOF, just your own assumptions (which I'm sure are were made because of your dislike of pesticides).
Do dogs have a full recovery without no neurological damages
At $4,000 this alternative means of transportation is a can't-miss thing. The more I investigate the Elf the more ready I am to buy one. What are the financing options?
I rather wish that articles "that are not contributing to the" (enlightenment and education of the Indy readership) would not be published and that articles" that include ad hominem attacks" upon citizens (especially against a hard working, valued and contributing community citizen -as in this case) would (also) not be published. The diatribe written by Mr. Smith smacks of yellow journalism tinged with a goodly dose of "provincial" snide. It is one of the most unenlightened and unpleasant articles I've ever read within the Indy. Least we forget, "love" is an emotion. Not a decision. That the expert historian Mr. Brown uses his love (decisively) on behalf of his neighborhood and neighbors to promote and preserve and enlighten is to be a applauded, or at the very least he is to be respected! Denigrating another human being after the fact for their devotion to a worthy endeavour (and considering he was a "guest" ), strikes me as the height of bad form.
I grew in the house on Perkins Rd in Durham, and have the fondest memories of it. My sister would chase me down the hall, and when I'd run in my room, she would hit the door at a full run, and Daddy would have to put it back on the track. Mom would wash down the walls twice a year, inside, and we would see them turn gray again, lightening from the removal of stains from tobacco and oil heat. Daddy turned the garage into a rec/playroom, added an office, large den and eating area and another bath. My room had a built in desk and closets, and I remember doing math problems with a pencil on the desk, easily washing them away with water when I finished. I remember how the house rumbled once, when lightning hit on or near the house, causing it to reverberate all over. I loved that house- Mom and Daddy made it special, and remembering it gives me that warm, safe feeling from my childhood.
As Raleigh is consumed by suburban sprawl, McMansions and vast strip malls to pick this neighborhood to deride is utterly baffling. Why was this article published?
Mathew Brown is a gentleman and a community activist of the first order. For you, Aaron 'Lake' Smith, to attempt to denigrate him in an ad hominen manner because you don'the appreciate the neigborhood only speaks to your immaturiy as a human being.
