i have a project i need help with. here is my idea. as most of you know i ride a pedicab,my pedicab has a headlight,tail lights,blinkers and brake lights. they all run off of a 12 volt battery under the seat. the problem is that i always end up with a dead battery if i dont charge it every other day...suddenly i came up with a great idea. what if i could charge my battery while riding my pedicab. i have seen the lights that rub on the tire and the faster you go the brighter the light gets but i dont think this would power all the lights i have. so anyone out there got any ideas?

here in Chicago people love there baseball, they love the cubs they love sox. so when they play each other its a damn mad house. lucky for me i need money and have a pedicab, its one of the biggest pedicab weekends of the year. ill start tomorrow working the game around 12 and ride till maybe 7 or 8 come home eat and then go out and do the bar crowed till 2 or 3 in the morning then get up and be back out for at 11 for the Saturday game and do it all over again...then there is the sunday game. ill let you know my mileage and how much i made. i need to pay for those new Adidas Adistar XC Ultra shoes i just bought,look for the review down the road.
the cubs swept the white sox in all three games. i try to stay pretty neutral on this weekend so i don't get beat up but i do like the cubs a little better but sox fans tip better.
now the pedicab highlights. Friday was good i gave some rides and cleaned up Friday night. Saturday was the big day, it was hot and busy. me and another guy ended up giving two couples a ride downtown which is about five miles away. we stoped so they could get a 12 pack and then took the path that runs along the lake shore all they way downtown.they loved it and gave us $100 each so that was cool. Sunday i was hurting and got a few $40.00 rides and one was a block from our garage,so i just gave up. yesterday was spent at my girlfriends house eating alot and sleeping all day.
three more games starting tonight. ill print in the morning and ride at night. like my brother always told me. "you gotta make hay when the sun is shining" and right now it bright out.

not to sound all like i know it all but im tired of hearing people bitch about gas and trying to make me feel bad because the giant suv they bought 3 years ago now cost half there pay check to fill. dont get me wrong,i know people do need to drive sometimes and i know that must be rough but please stop bitching and do something! take the bus,ride the train, car pool with your neighbors or god for bid walk or ride your bike. im just sick of hearing people cry and do nothing about it. so let the comments come in telling me im jerk but least im doing something about it.
