Petroleum products are the future - not this nonsense.

Huge bbfan

More EV's and no, reliable, means of generating more electricity in sight

Interesting concept 🤔 . You people are chasing rainbows and unicorns 🦄 I think. You can contemplate that while you are sitting through the brownouts and blackouts that will occur, like California!


We drove our 15-year-old Subaru to the event.

The event was delightful. We've been shopping EVs for some years now, and seeing all the Teslas was fun, even though we are inclined toward several other brands.

I believe that we have purchased our last internal combustion engine. The future is electric, and I'm glad that Sutherlin has this. It will be even better when reliable distributed chargers are more widely available; this is happening at an accelerating rate.
