I went to the Anaheim Golden Corral a few days ago. I don't think it's an option to consider for our group. Smaller seating area, fewer items on the menu, and no meeting room.

I’ll be bringing the red Tesla 3, but I need to leave early, by 9:45am.

If you can make it to Tony's EV Bash on Saturday the 14th, you are likely to be glad that you did.

At our last EV Gathering, we had close to 20 people show up at the Hometown Buffet in Santa Ana, including Tony Williams.

Our next EV Gathering is this coming Saturday, the 7th of July, at the Golden Corral on the City of Industry.

See the first post of this thread to view all the dates for our EV Gatherings for the rest of 2018.

See you Saturday, hopefully, ... and have a good, and safe, 4th of July ... Gary

Note especially to Boomer23: I have posted comment about significant change to SCE online graphing on SCE thread under Utilities. Net solar production (negative consumption) seems to be missing. This is not good.

BTW I have been experimenting with Auto Pilot 1 on the Model S Tesla loaned me while my car underwent 75K mile maintenance, including installing a new traction motor, and body work to repair a dent they made while in the shop.

This loaner was produced Mar 2015. It has original nose cone and Auto Pilot 1. At first it was so scary I could only keep AP on for a few seconds at a time, but Gary explained how to set the following distance to maximum by twisting the stalk. Now I am using it regularly, including auto lane following. Comments:

Driving quality is not great but acceptable.
After 4 years of development, about equal to a teenager who has been driving for one week.
Response to cars moving into my lane ahead of me is slower than my own response would be. Sad.

Driving "quality" is defined by the car's control laws, how the car responds to sensory input. Control theory is an established discipline that has been around in aerospace engineering for at least half a century. It has very little to do with AI.

Hi fellow So Cal EVers.

Who would like to join me and a few other EV lovers to welcome and cheer on an intrepid EV enthusiast from Arizona State University who is on a month long road trip demonstrating and supporting sustainability throughout the West in a new Tesla Model 3?

We’ll be meeting him and his son at 8 am on Tuesday morning at the San Clemente Superchargers July 31, with breakfast at Ruby’s beginning at 8:30 am.

Details:
Join us to meet and support John S Martinson and his son as they complete a month long, 6,000 mile road trip through 10 states and 2 Canadian provinces in a new Tesla Model 3 LR as part of a sustainability project supporting Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability.
We will meet and greet at the San Clemente Outlet Superchargers at 8 am on Tuesday, July 31, and then adjourn to Ruby’s for breakfast at 8:30.
Depending on number of signups, and given the weekday timing, I’ll reserve space for us at Ruby’s.

I realize this is early on a Tuesday morning, so I’m not expecting a huge turnout, but a few enthusiastic souls would be a nice welcoming committee.

So who’s up for an extra breakfast meetup on July 31?

With the special event Tues the 31 and the previous special event Sat the 14th, how many of us are coming to regular event tomorrow, Sat 21, in Santa Ana? I would like to come if turnout will be normal or above.

Next Tuesday, July 24, I am leaving town for my annual trek to Lake Almanor, near Mt. Lassen Volacanic National Park, half way between Reno and Redding, to visit my friend from College and his wife. Remodel has just begun a pause of several weeks while much of the team takes big vacation camping in WY, and others of the family attend the birth of a grandchild.

I agree with Boomer that Traffic Aware Cruise Control should add real safety to driving in stop and go when driver attention fades, even though it performs worse than an alert driver. Does anyone have testimonials that the Tesla version of this feature alone currently performs significantly better than this feature on many other upscale cars at much lower price points? Many (most ?) of those other brands have only a single camera and no radar.

Here is link to my emodel project pictures, starting with "before" shots.
