Since his blog (at http://negativecarbonroadtrip.evchargehub.com/) isn't updated that frequently, I also checked his Facebook and Twitter hashtag links at the top. Usually, I didn't find many updates there either.

Somewhere (in one of his posts?), he alluded to his Twitter handle. :idea: Aha! https://twitter.com/Negativecarbon is updated more often. Unfortunately, he doesn't use his #NegCarbRoadtrip tag in most of his tweets.

I've been really disappointed in his blog. Updates are not frequent enough and when they do get posted, not much info. Maybe he's taking notes and will post later but as of now I give the blog a C- rating and I feel that's being nice.

I refuse to read Twitter or Facebook.

What's wrong with reading https://twitter.com/Negativecarbon? I'm not a big Twitter user either. I mainly use it to enter drawings/sweepstakes. I use Facebook daily but he hasn't posted much there, at least via what he linked to.

Well, I'm mostly with LeafMuranoDriver, I don't know his reasons but mine are that I don't like to turn over control of what I see and do on the internet to the filters and views of those companies. I prefer to support smaller, private websites that don't try to control all of the internet. Frankly, if I were EVChargehub and Lasareath I would want more of the web exposure of the trip to come to my own site rather than FB/Twitter, especially if I had invested as heavily. It also makes it harder, and frankly less interesting, to try to keep up by having to look multiple places and still never getting a coherent story anywhere. Like when's the last time he planted a tree (which I thought was a central focus of the trip)? So sadly, I've kind of lost interest.


Just my thoughts...

*edit*
I realized after actually reading the thread that Brian is the one that stopped in here at my work... Ken Garff Nissan of SLC. I never had a chance to talk to him unfortunately but what a cool journey to take.

I echo most of jpadc's comments. I thought the blog was the focal point of documenting the trip. I only want to check his site or this site, not the "big ones".

Not sure when he planted the last trees. lol Wasn't that the point of the trip?

If I knew he was planting trees at the time he stopped in our dealership I would've suggested one at my house :D. But from what I am gathering he is trying to plant one in just about every state he visits since it shows he's at 24/48 on the blog.

Judging by https://twitter.com/Negativecarbon/stat ... 8684352517, he was in So Cal 6 hours ago.

Too bad he didn't take feedback about more frequent and better status updates. I'd asked that he at least tweet his current odometer mileage, current city and next planned city right after he initiates a charging session, at least on long sessions where he has to L2.
