Are you getting support from Nissan for this? They are working on a support effort in some of their major North American markets. If you haven't had any contact with them yet, let me know and I'll make some inquiries.

Alas I won't be able to attend this year. My Son is getting married that day so I will be 'otherwise engaged'. You guys have a great time.

Does anyone still own a LEAF in Nashville :-)

The silence is deafening.

OK, I did a little digging and found (on the Nissan LEAF FB page) that they did have a black LEAF as the pace car! Kudos to Nissan for making the right choice!

Well spotted! Glad they did the right thing!

The first 12 miles of the race went very well for me, until I cramped up that is :-) I did finish but didn't get a personal best, I was on pace to beat 2 1/2 hours but ended up taking just over 3. Maybe I'll do better next year.


Rock n Roll San Jose Half Marathon was this past weekend. A great day (sunny and cool) except that the pace car wasn't a LEAF. But the police had electric motorcycles, which at least was something. I beat my target time of 2:15, coming in at 2:14:50. Throttled myself through mile 8, then started to open it up. Sixteen weeks of training led to a very satisfying experience. Hope to do another one in a few months. Will start working on Nissan to sponsor next year.

We just leased a Leaf off the lot from Nissan of Cool Springs on September 30. We had been a one-car family, since I walk to work & my wife has a home office, and that one car is a Prius. In other words, we didn't really need the Leaf, but got it as a technology experiment. We decided the lease terms were good enough ($210/month for the SL!) that we could afford to try it out.

I am slowly seeing more of them around Nashville. It is a bit like the early days in 2001 with our Prius, when owners flashed their lights at each other.

Anyone interested in a group drive some weekend out the Natchez Trace Parkway? We did one of the 10 years ago with a bunch of Priuses. It's really nice driving a perfectly quiet car out the Trace.

Just checked out the Cool Springs web site.

Do they really have 12 LEAFs on the lot or would these be cars that are in the dealership "Family"?


- update -

Just got off the phone with Patric Cox from the dealership. He said they sold 12 LEAFs last month, they do have probably 10 on the lot & he's working me up an offer :D

Thanks,
Philip

Another meetup would be great. If we are to do a run along the trace, some folks who come from further afield would need a boost prior to joining in. The Loveless cafe is the closest place to get a charge I believe.

If we have a meetup I can suggest somewhere we should NOT go. Radnor Lake State Park. Read my latest rant at

Call to all EV'ers in Middle Tennessee to boycott Radnor Lake State Park.
