Are you ready for some biofuel adventuring?

Posted: 08:37 AM ET

It's been a long day here in the Bay area. So long that you'll likely not see this post until Monday a.m.

Brian and I spent the day readying the Scout for the long drive. This included securing a new battery (we still have the old one for backup), attaching some weather stripping that the previous owner left for us (wow, did that reduce the amount of rattling in the old gal) and extolling the virtues of a little device we like to call the "lifesaver" (more on that later).

We're working on a video of the Scout - which you just might see on CNN.com/live later today.

Cya on the flipside!

Buy a video capable digital camera, and lots of spare SD ram.
In terviews, along the way, may be what defines the adventure.


Clyde Faircloth III   July 28th, 2008 1:08 pm ET

My name is Clyde Faircloth III. I have had the privilege of serving this Great Nation of Ours. I served in the US Navy aboard several submarines. I am now a Disabled American Veteran. I have invented a car/ truck battery that would run for thousands and thousands of miles without the need to be "plugged in".
The first news outlet that covers my story can have exclusive rights to my information. Do not release my personal information yet because I do not want the oil companies knocking down my door. Not only can the batteries supply almost an endless supply of energy, they will be very cost effective and removable to put in another vehicle if you decide to change vehicles. You won't need special training to operate or repair any of my technology. I received most of my training through the Navy and finished up to become an electrical engineer. I am disabled and unable to work but I can put the battery to use in as little as nine months from this day, however I will need funding to do so. The rest is up to whoever gets it first.

This message will be sent to you Mr. President and to all news outlets, and car manufacturers'. I will not however, sell the American public and the world out to the oil companies.

I would like your strong endorsement on this issue and your persuasion to one of Our vehicle manufacturer here in the USA.

As far as funding goes I am still fighting the Veterans Administration over that. I have had my right side crushed by a torpedo and now my right leg doesn't work so well. I fall frequently and have had to have three surgeries because of this condition. the Vs say 20% but my doctors say 100%, anyway I am not able to work so I invent things

I do sincerely hope to hear from your staff concerning this matter. I also would like to know who I can get funding of about @ one million USD. This could revolutionize everything that we need oil for. I am sorry to say this again but I do need the funding and a vehicle manufacturer to work with.

Very Respectfully,
Clyde Faircloth III(R)

Atomic batteries would have long range, around the planet numerous times.
But can you make them safe and small ?


Rogers Mills   July 30th, 2008 6:25 pm ET

Keep fighting, I finally got my 80% level and then applied for the unemployability for the last 20%. I just won a case in Washington that took years to complete. 2 years for the final appeal alone. The Judge gave the VA a smack-down. It was fun to read.

Nice post. I discover some thing much harder on various blogs everyday. Most commonly it is stimulating to read content off their writers and rehearse something at their store. I’d opt to use some using the content in my small weblog no matter whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link with your internet weblog. Thank you sharing.
