Just got off the phone with Scott. Here's my phone number for those who intend to participate:

We discussed locations, and it appears to me that 805 N. 2nd St, Phoenix, AZ is a good launch point for many reasons. It is centrally located in Phoenix, there are a gazillion other L2 chargers around the area, there is a BLINK quick charger, the freeway (10) is only .7 miles away, there is a 12.7 mile loop on the 10/17 freeways that returns us right back to the same location. From the start location, we travel first EAST on the freeway for clockwise loops.
A second loop starts and ends at the same location, via 10/202/143/10/17/10 for a total of 20.9 miles on this loop. The brand new LEAF can do this route exactly 4 times.
For Scott's car, let's just say that I don't believe that his car has an instrument error, therefore I can calculate that at 62mph (100kmh) that the car will travel 84 miles new, and now with a 33% reduction with 4 battery capacity bars missing, that leaves 56 miles of predicted range, or 4.75 laps of this course on the short course, and 2.7 laps on the big course.
Scott has an big pickup truck, and we will put a dolly on it to recover vehicles. I will rent a Uhaul truck and dolly to do the same. Every owner has the ability to call Nissan tow service, or AAA, etc. Perhaps others have big pickups to attach car dollies to.
We can dolly the cars from whatever charger they charged on overnight at or near 805 N. 2nd St to a predicted start point on the course that will have the car hitting VLB and turtle mode very near this starting location. Fortunately, everything is quite level.
We will use the US Government official wind, temperature and dew point that is broadcast every hour from PHX airport (ATIS).
