Mike, Marty McFry and Ben…on the road for the SOS Road Trip

Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean? Doc: The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style? We couldn't agree with you more, Doc Brown. With the passing of Soy George last winter, we had to go out and get another vehicle for the Save Our Snow Road Trip. And if you're gonna convert a vehicle to run on waste vegetable oil, why not do it in style? This year we found a DeLorean-inspired…

The hunt for a transmission for Soy George

For those of you who followed our Save Our Snow Road Trip last winter, you’ll recall our veggie-fueled RV, Soy George, didn’t quite finish the journey. His transmission fell off in Whistler on the last week of the tour. End of story? Hardly! Mike—(the SOS tour Captain) is determined to have Soy George back on the road for next Winter’s tour. Mike found a similar RV in Seattle with what appears to be a working transmission. Problem is, it’s been sitting so long it  won’t start…  I headed up to Seattle on Friday, determined to make that old RV run and…

SOS Tour--Washington

After several different attempts to get Soy George back on the road, Mike and co-captain Luke make the tough decision to leave him behind and head to a very snowy Washington for the last leg of the SOS winter roadtrip without the RV. Check out Mike's lastest video and see more photos from the tour. Before heading off to our Washington stops in Snoqualmie and Stevens Pass, we decided to take one last stab at getting Soy George back on the road. With the transmission falling off and the bolts that were supposed to be holding it on snapped in two,…

SOS Tour--Whistler

As the SOS winter roadtrip is nearing the end, Mike takes on Whistler with Marie, Giselle and Gord. Armed with Cool Tags, this A-Team (minus an under the weather Luke) does a stellar job teaching snowgoers about ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Check out Mike's latest, and quite possibly greatest, video on YouTube. The tour has only one more stop after this weekend but for some reason Soy George must have missed that memo because he checked out early. Remember that broken bolt that we noticed on the way to Jackson? Well, a few more bolts snapped so our transmission…
