I was thinking some more about this idea. What if the company were called TOWZ
You could go to the app on your phone and negotiate a price or maybe a barter trade for something later? Them both parties could rate the transaction and maybe do a thumbs up or thumbs down just like on Facebook. I could be a whole social media meeting place for like-minded people!
This guy must have a lot of free time for really dumb ideas but not really thinking about how it would actually work. This idea is really really dumb.
Don't forget that this is the same Rhodes scholar that posted about putting Volt on treadmills a while back, and I'm pretty sure there was one about roof-mounted windmill generators before that.
Ya know, it's thinking like GreenMonster that might yield the next Snuggie.
Just put a strong electromagnet on the front of the car so it sticks to the back of trucks. That would work great. Use that roof-propeller idea to power the electromagnet, of course.
GreenMonster's posts are awesome. Read the other ones!
I was mainly thinking about big rigs who might want to help out. They could just hook up your car and pull you however far up the road you're going or until they have to let you go. Five, 10, 20 miles doesn't matter. Every bit helps!
For me it seems a little bit safer than the drafting I like to do.
Of course cars and passenger trucks could also participate if they wanted to pull us.
My truck gets 19 mpg alone, but only 13 mpg towing. That extra fuel adds up. My truck rarely goes anywhere unless I'm towing anyway though. Towing is it's sole reason for existing.
OMG! Where to start.
They aren't pulling anything for free. I would charge anyways to cover insurance if it got injured in my care. Also, where is the driver of the car going to go?
