Steer your path through life by our GOLDEN COMPASS the quest for eternal happiness
- The Jeep Cherokee that Professor Douglas Storm gave to John - in need
of much work. Previously used in connection with an ocean research
In his quest to complete his DNA collection, John Storm relies on a classic Jeep Cherokee 4x4 all wheel drive, rugged off road vehicle, to reach those out of the way places. Such as his exploration of the South Africa and Egypt, where sand replaces roads. And then of course there are Brazilian jungles.
His uncle, Professor Douglas Storm, gifted him the Cherokee well before the Elizabeth Swann, before he went missing. When John first got the vehicle, it was a mess. They were prone to rust on the sills. The window seals were also a problem. The petrol (Gasoline) consumption was quite horrendous. An appalling fuel economy, that worried John, as he is a conservationist. But he was very fond of it's off road capabilities and the rugged nature or the truck. For this reason, he elected to fit a methanol conversion to the four litre internal combustion engine. He always bought green fuels, or those with carbon offset, such as to be CO2 neutral; a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV).
John set about restoring the truck. This soon led to improvements, such as a composite roof with solar panels, to generate power for his equipment, and keep the batteries charged when not in use for long periods. Then John added electric drive, using a fuel cells to convert hydrogen. The vehicle thus became a zero emission hybrid.
It all started when John was on a fact finding archaeological dig in Tanzania, held to be the cradle of life, at Olduvai Gorge in South Africa. He found fossilized human remains, that sparked his interest in anthropology, branding him for life as a collector of DNA, in his search for our past, and pointer to the future.
John is obsessive about his collecting. He knows this. It is sometimes amusing, just how dedicated he is, when it comes to anthropology, and his ancestors.
John's collection of DNA is stored in The Ark, the world's most powerful interactive digital DNA library. The integrated system is loyal to John Storm, coded to recognize and protect him, and authorized members of the crew.
