Good Morning DieselRam...

65 this morning and rain closing in. Could stay till tomorrow.
Might warm up 5 deg then cool off 10.

JFJ, as I understand it, the FedEx guys teacher told him it couldn't be done, so "he tackled the thing that couldn't be done and he showed them how he could do it!"....most of the time.

Thanks guys, I'll pass your congrats to Ralph.
Yes, the national solar race is more a contest of longevity.
All electric, no generator backup, batteries allowed, but daily legs up to 400 miles so you gotta harvest the power of the sun to keep it going.
The "Sundancer" is self sustaining on level ground with good sun at about 40mph with a top speed near 60, I believe.

They've won their division in the US several times and competed in the "World Solar Challenge" in Australia several times, placing in the top 5 there but never winning
