I created this blog as a way to chronicle my family’s experience with our first electric vehicle. We live in the West Kootenays of British Columbia, hence the blog title.
My wife and I have two young boys (9 and 7), both of which ‘know’ the difference between an electric car and a “stink car” 😉
I am an environmental engineer by day, and so I have a (perhaps unhealthy!) love of spreadsheets.
This blog is just getting started, but I have been collecting data for months now, so I plan to share insights from analyzing that data in the months to come. Lots to read now after a few years, so dig in!
We are also an active family, so expect to see posts on practical uses for the car aside from commuting.
