The first day of any significant endeavor is often filled with excitement and optimism, this day was no exception for me.

I had traveled this same route a number of times over the past 50 years: by car, truck, motorcycle and even bicycle. I mostly knew what to expect.  What made this day different from all the others, however, was that the other vehicles along the way did NOT KNOW what to expect of me.

Most — if not ALL! — of the motorists along the route had never before encountered such a large guy riding such a large, stand-up scooter, towing such a large, one-wheeled trailer along a major interstate highway.

It was a new experience for us all. On this particular day, I was these driver’s first, but hopefully not last, close encounter with a vehicle of my kind.

Personal Electric Vehicles (PEVs) are here to stay, and though I may be one of a very few long-distance adventurers at the moment, there’s no doubt many more will be joining the ranks as the months go by.

2500 years ago Lao Tzu remarked that, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

If he had seen me on the road today setting out on the world’s first Transcontinental Overland Scooter Expedition he may have mused, “A scoot of 21,000 miles begins on Day 1.”

Today was that day.

God willing, only 519 more days to go!
