In 2013, eight strangers from around the world decided to attempt to set four Guinness World Records on electric vehicles to prove they were reliable and viable for today's society. The group took on the seemingly impossible task of crossing the U.S. using four different types of electric vehicles in the middle of a hot summer, with no corporate funding and very limited planning. During their grueling 44 day journey to educate consumers, they encounter numerous obstacles including weather, injuries, organization, finding power sources, communications and more but come away with amazing stories about people, places and sustainability accomplishments. Duane Leffel, driver of the Nissan LEAF during the Ride The Future Tour, takes you on a behind-the-scenes journey across the U.S. with the Tour. Providing a unique perspective, Duane takes you from Charleston, SC to San Francisco using his dry sense of humor and hundreds of supportive photos from the actual trip. Learn how Duane set a Guinness World Record, became aware of sustainability initiatives around the country, and now offers some simple ideas on how YOU can make a sustainability impact too!
