50,000 Active E miles and a Happy New Year


Yes!  The current acquisition of an astromech droid made me think of the run on the Death Star on Star Wars…  (Episode 4, A New Hope for you young ones!)

I was thinking…

Almost there…

Then…  Woohoo!

50,000 miles of BMW Electric driving…  There have been others that have driven more combined with their Mini Es…  There’s been exactly one guy who has driven more Active E miles…  So, I would think that with less than two months left before the Active E goes back to BMW.  It’s time to really concede the Active E crown to Tom!

As I mentioned when Active E #1 suffered its crash, perhaps my goal would be to tie or come in one mile short of his 53,683….  With the amount of Tesla driving we’ve been doing lately…  That might just be the goal.

Happy New Year!  And may you find yourself electrified and enjoying it!
