Off the Grid: My Ride from Louisiana to the Panama Canal in an Electric Car [EPUB]

The rollicking tale of a first-of-its-kind adventure—driving a Tesla through Central America.
Only a week after the nation’s newspapers were filled with headlines of the first cross-country trip in an electric car, two Louisianans slip quietly across the Rio Grande in south Texas in an attempt to do the unthinkable—drive a factory electric car across seven Third World countries to the “end of the road,” Panama City, Panama.
Without support and armed only with a toolbox, a bag of electrical adapters, and their wits, author Randy Denmon and his friend Dean trudge on through jungles, deserts, volcanoes, rivers, and crater-sized potholes, all the while trying to avoid the drug cartels and corrupt border guards that could mean a quick end to their adventure . . . and their lives. Through it all, the same enormous problem loomed daily: how to charge the car in such a primitive and desolate setting?
Despite the numerous setbacks, Randy never lost his sense of humor. Off the Grid is as much a spiritual journey as a physical one about two guys who dropped everything for one grand twenty-first-century adventure—traveling back in time in a car that seemed to come from the future.

A collection of photographic and written essays about the place some have described as the most fought-over parcel of land in human history.
Contemporary Visions and Scriptures seeks dialogue with the ancient lands and modern visions of the people who inhabit these sacred spaces, and the burgeoning contradictions of their daily lives, furthermore it attempts to address and liberate a complex, profound relationship between man and territory since the beginning of time, and nowhere is this dynamic more prescient than in the Holy Land.
