Strange Discoveries During Trip, Cincinnati: Arts & Market, German Food in Columbus!
Strange Discoveries During Trip: This is the final segment of the Tesla Trip Around America. 6,684 Miles Travelled and 830 Miles Ahead from Cincinnati to Saratoga Springs in next 4 days.
There have been a few Strange Discoveries during this month long journey in the Tesla:
Green Sweaters Increase Mileage: I have been tracking our miles and electrical charges closely to see the impact of outside temperature, speed and even which one of us is driving. But, the strangest divergence was the highest number of miles per charge came when the driver was wearing a green sweater. Perhaps the car senses the “green” eco nature of electrical cars.
Mules & Donkeys - Experiments in Animal Assisted Charging: While most of our charging has come from Tesla Superchargers that are ultimately hooked into electrical grids from steam, coal, atomic or wind power, we were quite shocked to see an experiment in using animal waste. In Nebraska, there is a Demo Lab testing the “output” of Mules & Donkeys to charge a Tesla. Wow!
Conversational Stress Increases at 9% Charge Level: We have had almost 7,000 miles of wonderful conversations as we shared driving around America. But, once the charge level on the battery meter went below 9%, things changed. It didn’t happen often, but passenger to driver stress is directly linked to remaining battery charge levels. Beware!
There are several other Discoveries that we made, but they will have to wait until next year on april fools day to share :)
Cincinnati Arts & Market: Thursday, our learning & theater colleague, Cary Harlow, gave us an extensive tour of the amazing Arts facilities in Cincinnati. From a world class K-12 school for performing arts:
To the Aronoff Center for the Arts:
And, then on to the extensive Findlay Farmers Market:
The Road to Cleveland - With Hofbrauhaus Lunch: We plotted our route to Cleveland with a stop in Columbus, Ohio to recharge and return to a memorable German Restaurant - Hofbrauhaus:
My father, Hans Masie, was from Germany and I thought of him as I had the Munich Special: Jägerschnitzel, Grilled Mettwurst, Bratwurst, German Potato Salad and Spaetzle. Sehr Gut!
Now, on to Cleveland with a Coaching Network call with colleague Marshall Goldsmith and an afternoon at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!
Yours in Learning & Travel,
