A lovely day. Only 23 degrees in the morning and 33 degrees at midday. We put up our folding table in the shadow of birch-trees on a parking lot while Green Car gobbled up healthy 380 volt power. Humps on the road kept us awake at the wheel. Heat and heavy trucks has disfigured the tarmac into deep ruts and dangerous ridges. We call them Killer-humps because Green Car has a battery-box down below, and much too close to the Russian ground. But all went well. At night when we had to find power there was none to be reached. Then quickly off the highway and down a dirt-track. Out of sight we pulled out the emergency generator. When we cannot find power from the grid we have to produce it ourselves, we cannot be picky. Heart of the matter is we are propelled 100% by electricity. So we spent the night under the stars, to lazy to put up our tent. The sun dropped and an orange half-moon rose on a sky dotted with stars. In the distance trucks roared by, every ten minutes drowned by the rumble of endless trans-sibirian trains.
