Beach Walk 555 – Lexi’s Limo Buys Carbon Offsets

By a curious coincidence, Santa came a day early, and the very day after Shane and I watched, Who Killed the Electric Car on DVD last night!

Lexi now has her very own limo, and I no longer have to decide between driving around town to do errands (with Lexi’s fine company) or using my bicycle and dealing with Lexi’s major moping mood at being left at home.

Plus! We will be offsetting about 6 lbs of carbon offset for each little trip to the beach! This definitely feels good, and so do those calories I am going to be burning in my neglected thighs, which hopefully won’t be producing too much CO2 either. ๐Ÿ™‚ And in case you are worrying about the calories required to fuel these bike rides, both Lexi and I stay away from McDonald’s as a matter of habit.

  1. Wow Shane – great job on this episode! So many good ideas you had in the filming and the editing and mahalo to Robert too for sending us your music.

    What a treat to see the neighborhood – thanks!

    I guess you could even makes trips to the market too, however Lexi might object to her limo being used as a trailer…

    Very cool (and green) – thanks again!

    Great show today! You two just keep making Beachwalks better and better. Your show is so much more than the name implies yet able to keep the beachwalk theme in everything you do. Loved the Santa hat Rox, nice touch. Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. The music is awesome, Mahalo to Robert. And mahalo to Rox and Lexi for the gift of carbon offset, how cool. I liked Randy’s comment “keeping the beachwalk theme in everything you do”. Just walking down to the store here in PA in the winter can be a beachwalk – I like that! Aloha

  5. Thanks for being there morning after morning.
    I’m learning english with Rox, it’s much more enjoyable than reading books… I love you, Rox.
    Your videos are fantastic, excelent!!!!

  6. Fantastic episode!

    Excited about how your use of the limo changes over time and how you optimize your use of it.

  7. How much does Lexi weigh? How much does the cart weigh? I bet there is a formula from high school physics that will calculate the energy that you are expending! Very cool. I’m going to look into one of those carts.

  8. WOW!! That was be best one ever! I love them all but this was great. The scenery, the message, everything. Keep up the great work cuz it’s appreciated.

    See you on the Reef

  9. Such great feedback! Mahalo everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a great birthday present, as I am just now catching up on the site.

    Lexi weighs about 75 lbs. The cart weighs about 10 lbs, and it is easy on the flats. A little work to get started but I barely feel her back there once we are under way. Peddling into the wind though, I did feel it a bit more. Cycling is about 600 cals an hour, maybe add another 100 for Lexi. ๐Ÿ™‚
