Hi Greg, Marc, and all others in the BHM area!

We have two more -- count 'em -- TWO more LEAFs in the area! Woo Hoo! One of them is right where I work, the other is a little further North on 280. We have enough numbers for a decent get together now. What say you?

Let's pick a date and get together!

Cheers, Bert

Hi Bert,

Sounds great, I will bring along the latest version on the Open EVSE charger to show off.
I currently have a commitment for Sept 2nd, but most other weekends are open.

Thanks,
Greg C.

National Plug In Day is Sunday September 23rd 2012.

Bert posted on August 24th that it would be nice to have another get together in the Birmingham area with several new Leaf owners joining us recently.
National Plug in Day sounds like a good reason for a meet, anyone up for it?

I'm up for it but we may have to do Saturday as I won't be able to make Sunday... Sorry.

California Pizza Kitchen at the Summit again? I'm open for any other suggestion.

Regards, Bert

L3 charging after annual battery checkup at Crown Nissan.

First time using the L3 charge port

The battery check went fine with 5 stars for all categories. Our Leaf service person Justin Lightsey did a great job and got us in and out fairly quickly.
So far I can recommend Crown Nissan for service, and will be back again in a year.
The L3 charger is positioned a bit weird, and will not reach if parked in the space next to it.
I was told the best way to park was head-on as in the above photo, which partially encroaches on the service entrance.

G'day y'all! :-)

I am seriously loving my car! Nearly 11,000 trouble-free miles so far in the last 13 months. A bit late getting my annual battery checkup done, need to do that.

I have seen a new silver LEAF on Acton Road near the golf course twice now in the last few weeks. I guess we have a new LEAF owner! Hopefully he will pipe up. I know it's a "he" because this morning I saw an impressive black mustache... No wave back when I waved at him though.

Cool to see more LEAFs popping up in the area!

Cheers, Bert
