Car 2 Go (sharing smarts in Austin, Texas)

I just heard about this program, the first in the U.S. and the second one in existance (Ulm Germany was the 1st). I got these pictures while at RRsmart today. Sounds like a pretty cool program.

According to

Daimler will have car-sharing program in Austin, Texas. Daimler will roll out its “mobility concept,” car2go, in Austin this fall following the expansion of a pilot program in Ulm Germany.

Austin will have 200 Smart Fortwo cars… Continue

Chance Meeting

We had a chance meeting with another smart for lunch at Jaime's in Austin, Texas (8th and Red River).

They were really friendly, of course, and I encouraged them to attend our next CenTex smart Club activity, a poker run.

I've been driving with my sunscreen pulled back this week for the first time and I love it. It's just been so hot here in Texas and the sun is so bright that I only wanted to block out the sun. Now with the temps in the 30's and the sun… Continue

Braille Rallye anyone?

Would you be interested in a Central Texas Braille Rallye?

It's a timed auto sports event where a driver is paired with a visually impaired or blind co-pilot (navigator), who is responsible for reading the directions, in Braille or large print, and guiding the driver to the check points and through the course using public roads and ordinary traffic rules with the object of maintaining a specified average speed between checkpoints over a route unknown to the participants… Continue

Suggestions for meet?

Gettin' ready for the first Central Texas Meet-n-Drive I got my windows tinted and figured out where to put the kids (ha ha). We have 19 smart cars confirmed for the "run", as motorcycle clubs call it, so I better wash my smart and have it lookin' good. I'm a little nervous about the run since I organized it. I hope everyone shows up and I hope they enjoy it. Any suggestions from y'all would be greatly appreciated. I'll take lots of pictures and post them asap. Wish us…

First Central Texas meet-n-drive planned (July 19th)

I LOVE driving my smart sooo much that I planned the first Central Texas meet-n-drive. Finally a Central Texas Cruise. An Austin meet-n-drive. The first one! Saturday July 19th. We'll meet on the deck of Central Market North (CM) at 10am, chat-n-snack a little, then drive. We have a terrific photo op planned for our short drive (send me a private email and I'll divulge the secret). We'll drive a little around Austin, see and be seen by the natives then end the ride at CM (or nearby school… Continue

Turning heads! Driving is fun again!

Today was so cool! I LOVE driving this car! I was driving around Austin and had LOTS of people stop, stare and smile. Lot's of drivers turing their heads too. The coolest ones were the pacers. A silver corvette paced me to look while I was on the highway and so did a tricked out red (with flames) convertible mustang, but the very best was from the Durango driver who actually leaned out his window to look. Driving is fun again, even without the attention. It handles well, I lOVE the transmission… Continue
