Jonathan Becker - While filming the Zero Emissions & Drive Electric Tours a few years ago, I met a woman whose dream was to travel across America on her electric scooter to spread electric vehicle awareness and set a Guinness World Record. Her vision was to ride coast to coast from South Carolina all the way to Google Headquarters, California. Soon, other environmentally minded individuals stepped forward to take this bold electric vehicle journey with her, adding new electric vehicles to the mix.
Fast forward to early Summer 2013, they called me out of the blue. It was an incredible opportunity, after all they've had 3 yrs to plan and research this, right? The group now consisted of 8 strangers from various countries, prepared to ride a variety of electrically powered vehicles ranging from bikes to cars.
With one week's notice, a 3 man film crew, no budget, no plan, and a list of 44 cities. I said "Yep, this is going to be quite the ride.."
