[jules' pics] Madness

"We like driving in our bus,
It is far too big for us"
(sung to the obvious tune)
Odd to see a car so big that makes James (6.5 feet tall) look like an ipsy wipsy imp. However, there is methodism in our madness. Next week the in laws arrive to be taken on a road trip across the Zenlands of Wyoming and Utah. In our bus we hope they will be able to swing their legs about in the back without getting DVT. It is a little alarming how well it climbs. Must have a massive engine, and is probably getting about 1 mpg. Hopefully it also has a massive tank. Oh well. At least it isn't using as much power as the NCAR climate model ensemble runs on the Yellowstone computer (also in Wyoming).

It also uses low-carbon fuel, relatively speaking :-)

Not in the car, no.
