Day Two – Lincoln, NE to Colby, KS

CRAZY DAY!!!!!  Jay and Jesse got up early to have the broken engine mount repaired.  After taking it to a welder, Jay pulled in to the parking lot of the hotel, literally dragging the trailer – axle bearings were out on one side, having melted to the axle.  Jay and Jesse had to grind off [...]

Update From the Road

Update From the Road

After arriving late last Friday night through blinding rain, we met the other guys involved in the Rally Green – Dave Hudson and Bill  Buchholz, Bob Colbert, our host for the events of the weekend, and Ned and Jan Pearson – a wonderful couple that gave us apartments to stay in for the weekend.  After visiting for a [...]

On the Road With Rally Green

On the Road With Rally Green

Friday August 13, 2010 After much tweaking, packing, checking everything, loading, checking things again, and again, we left Erin, TN and headed to Knoxville, IA.  The day went fairly well until we crossed over into Iowa where we soon encountered multiple severe storms.  The rain was so heavy at times, we could hardly see the road, and had to [...]

Thousands of $$$ of Lithium Batteries are Trashed on the Stealth!

Thousands of $$$ of Lithium Batteries are Trashed on the Stealth!

After trying to work out the problems time after time with the lithium batteries, and spending 100′s of hours in remodeling to fit in more and more batteries over the last six months now, and, with less than a week before we leave, I made the decision to trash thousands of dollars spent on Lithium [...]

Training and Drive Train Reconfiguration!

Training and Drive Train Reconfiguration!

Sorry I haven’t had an update in a week and a half. I’ve been so involved with the news, planning with the United Way, training,  reconfiguring the drive train, and one other surprise aspect of the ‘STEALTH”, I feel I’ve hardly slept in a week. I’ll have a drive train update for you in a [...]

CBS Nashville moved to Sunday PM!!

CBS Nashville called this afternoon and said they had been editing the story all day and it is so good they want to hold it until Sunday PM. They said it was their biggest “viewership” night and they thought the story was the top of the week! Very exciting for the Stealth team but sorry [...]

CBS-Nasville Saturday Evening News 10 PM

Thanks to Fox News Nashville that came out today and did a story on the Stealth, but Wow! CBS came out in FORCE! They spent hours with us, one camera man even took a ride around downtown Nashville in the back seat,…what a blast! It seemed everyone was rolling their windows down to yell their [...]

Human Power is at 100% !!!!!!!!

Human Power is at 100% !!!!!!!!

One of the challenges for TriHybrid Stealth was to get all 46! Li batteries to charge at 80 volts from human effort. Although this may sound easy to you, as far as we know it has NEVER been done. Human effort at 24 maybe, 12 volts for sure, but 80 volts? Besides we wanted to [...]

Please Pray for my Trip!

This may seem like a strange request to some but absolutely vital to me. With all the problems getting the street tires and rims on four wheeler front units, the whole front end system has taken a lot of abuse and vibration. I was adjusting the “toe in” on Stealth when one of the tie [...]

Back in Erin, TN!

What a great time we had in Amarillo! Seeing friends and family, and working on Stealth. The NBC and Fox News was the highlight of our trip where Stealth was concerned. If a picture is worth a thousand words, the news video is worth a thousand pictures! If you haven’t yet, you need to go [...]
