“ROCKET TRIKE & THE GREEN HORNET” (Wednesday, October 20, 2010)

Started the day in St. Louis by getting lost on the way to the Fox News studio (not recommended on a rocket trike in early morning traffic), but with a little navigational help from Dave at the studio, finally made my way there (thanks, Dave). Did a really fun 3-minute piece with Fox2 News’ Tim Ezell on his 9:00am show:

Here’s the best part: “Black Beauty” (the car designed by Kato) from The Green Hornet was also on the lot.

As a huge fan of The Green Hornet when I was a kid, it was a thrill to actually sit in the car. Now if we can just convert it to electric.

Even better news is this: the website is finally launched (thanks for grinding it out, Mike – I know this was as frustrating for you as it was for me). I can finally share with everyone where I am and what I’ve been up to, and will no longer feel like “Major Tom” (from the David Bowie song, “Space Oddity”) floating through space in a tin can. Plan to spend the rest of the day, and evening if need be, holed up in my hotel room uploading the latest videos and photos from the road and letting folks know the site is now live. Good day today. The site is live and I now have over 1,100 miles under my belt (almost half way to DC).

    Hey, Tom!!!
    Awesome getting to see your adventure! Amanda had me forward this newsclip to her science teacher who asked me if she could share it with the school science department for their unit on renewable/non-renewable energy! Maybe you could bring the Rocket Trike to her school (in your spare time!). Mandy is also using one of the articles written about your quest in a science report! You are touching more lives than you know…stay strong! XO, Amy

    Tom, the website is up and its awesome. Checked out your Youtube videos and there great. Go Green Hornet, especially with some Lithium Ion Batteries, instead of that “oldschool” IC Engine.

  3. Tom, Great to see that someone is take the bull by the horns. Tell the Obama Administration that enough offshore oil drilling lets get into offshore windmills and solar farms. Great to see you get into action.
