I'm Jamie Edmonds aka "KMG365" proud owner of a new 2011 LEAF SL "orphan", which I "rescued" from Pacific Nissan on December 2nd. My wife, Leslie, and I live in the SDSU area. We have a 2.16kWh PV solar system with battery back-up which we put in in 2000 when Enron was raping and pillaging us all. I'm still waiting for my Blink charger to be installed and am also applying for a TOU meter from San Diego Gouge & Extortion as well (to go with the NEM I have for the solar). If any of you are associated with SDSU, I stumbled upon five new L-2 Blink chargers in the SDSU parking lot (55th and Montezuma) last week--sweet!
My wife is the former proprietor of http://www.BMWSportTouring.com
and we were Members/Moderators/Admins there for ten years (it started out as Cary's R1100RT Source Pages in the late 1990's, then became http://www.BMWRT.com
). The more "radical" off-road moto-types on the later sites disparagingly called our DB Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood (or "MRN") since we were all so damn nice to each other all the time. But it became a virtual family and a place with none of the usual juvenile dreck clogging up the bandwidth of so many sites these days. It was full of wonderful people who were passionate about their hobby, quirky, intelligent, helpful, friendly and welcoming to the n00bs. We wore the MRN label as a badge of honor, and though I've just joined and started to wade through all the posts here, I'm getting a good feeling about this place already!
Oh, Leslie named our new car "Ichi" . . . since . . .
. . . Ichi, Ni, San, Shi, Go!
(sorry, back in my hole)
Thanks to all the pioneers here who have blazed this trail for us! We hope to throw our shoulder into the load with you as much as we can. I'm sorry to miss your next meet up, but I'll definitely try to catch the next one.
