And Immediately Afterwards

We toasted our success with bubbly apple juice and this delicious chocolate cake that Lynn brought:

That's "Pennsylvania Electric Vehicle Conversion Workshop 1" painted on the side of the Vanagon -- and that's me smiling away behind the wheel!

The funny story Lynn related about the cake was that the box she'd planned to bring it in didn't fit. So the first thing she had to do on the last morning of the workshop was -- you guessed it! -- fabricate a box! My goodness, what an enduring theme that was over the last two weeks.

Despite my pledge to post the parts and suppliers list for the conversion this week, I have not completed my self-imposed homework assignment. Please check back in next week for the full data on costs of the conversion, and -- for those of you who can't get enough of the technical details -- updates on work that is still being done to the van, plus the range testing process.

Thanks for following along!
