Electric Bike Demo at Alabama Hill area

February 27, 2012 from 2pm to 3:30pm
A fellow from Seattle Electric BIkes is coming to Bellingham  (weather permitting!) to demonstrate the Bionx electric bicycle system. These folks were at our Great Unleasing, but I didn't have a chance to take a test ride then.  So this will be a good opportunity for others like myself to find out more about these bikes - without driving to Seattle.  Get a preview at http://www.seattleelectricbike.net/.  I'll post directions for all who register…See More

Shannon, There is a diesel club on Vashon Island that both brews and finds diesel engines to put into small imported trucks.  I don't have a contact number/name to pass on...I just know the folks when I'm on Vashon...Someone connected to the island could connect you.   It takes them awhile to locate diesel engines.

Hi SHannon, regarding your question about converting your toyota to a diesel, it is certainly possibly, the challenge would be finding a toyota diesel engine that would bolt up, they never sold them in the USA so you would need to import them. I would start with Vancouver (criagslist) and see what there is. At least you could go pick it up from Vancourver area. If you get one, let me know and I can help you convert it.

 

thanks,

 

Travis

Hi Shannon!  I so appreciate all the work you do in our community!  You create the monthly Solar Meeting and the emails from that network.  You created the Garden-News when you saw the need for that!  Your a major part of creating the Center for Local Self-Reliance, and you co-create our annual winter seed-swap!  The list goes on and still you remain a rock of stability and clarity!

 

Sometime, when you're inspired, it would be great to see your personal Transition Whatcom page to reflect some of this community work you do, and to inform folks who read your page, to contact you in regards to the various projects your involved in.

I'm looking forward to connect again in the garden, with seeds, and with enjoying the fruits of the vine!

Hello Shannon -
Could you add us to the garden email list? Hope this is the right place to submit request to be added to the info list. I am very interested in seed saving. We have no seeds as we have not grown anything yet. Wondering best way to buy heritage seeds (not sure if that is the correct term - the ones who can still reproduce themselves - non-GMO seeds? - Also not sure what we could start inside now, if anything? Would like to get a jump start and be ready to rock and roll in the spring! Need to start reading some books but have had no time.Thank you -
Erin
