Can a mixed bag of re-purposed electric vehicle and laptop batteries, fitted into a Volkswagen Samba on a budget, make a 266 mile trip?  That is the question of the day in the latest "Electric Samba Project" Video.

Jehu Garcia describes the journey (and destination) as follows:

"In this long awaited episode, we struggle with internal battles about whether we can claim success as we tackle the 266 miles trip to this years (2015) Buses by Bridge event in Lake Havasu, Arizona earlier in the year. We also take a closer look at some of the activities of this yearly tradition, which include a chili cook-off contest, as well as a corn hole tournament which competition is stiff for every year, and of course the hot air balloons that fill the skies during the weekend."

As always the video journey we are taken on is first class.
