In this episodic series we follow jehugarcia who shows how he combined a variety of batteries to power his electric Volkswagen Samba bus.

In this long awaited episode, we struggle with internal battles about whether we can claim success as we tackle the 266 miles trip to this years (2015) Buses by Bridge event in Lake Havasu, Arizona earlier in the year. We also take a closer look at some of the activities of this yearly tradition, which include a chili cook-off contest, as well as a corn hole tournament which competition is stiff for every year, and of course the hot air balloons that fill the skies during the weekend.
