Our next Gathering is this coming Saturday at the
Hometown Buffet on 17th street in Santa Ana, just
2 blocks East of I-5.

Just 48 hours and 52 minutes to go.
See you there, and demonstrate the Arduino Due.

How many charge stops are you planning there and back? I was considering going and helping out, but with my level of degradation, it would require too many stops to be time effective for me, particularly on the way back, so I'll just hang out at the event in Northridge...

My pack is still 95% so I can go all the way down to Newport Beach on 1 charge if needed and have... Funny that the wife takes the Leaf down to Santa Monic early Sat mornings for marathon training and she'll blow through 70% each way :shock: :lol:

Anyways.. my plan was this.. cruise down the 405... goto the Port of LA admin building.. 425 S. Palos Verdes Street, San Pedro

They have 4 Clip Creeks.. chill for abit of 7.2kw L2 and then go right over to the event a few miles away.

That way I have alot of charge if rides are wanted.. then go back, peak out and drive all the way home.

Nice to still have a decent pack AND a faster charger... :)

Do you have DCQC/CHAdeMO? I thought I was like the only one?

You're degraded enough not to make it down 41 miles?

Carson Nissan is right down there with DCQC. We could also drive down and you hit up the DCQC and I'll hook up at L2 there..

I might be a bit longer at L2 :lol:

Yeah, we are Coast Guard Auxiliary members and go down to the base in San Pedro from time to time. I'd stop at Carson for a QC when we used to take the Leaf... Getting down is not the issue, getting back is, and simply has become too much of a crap shoot to be worth it with our current battery capacity... Being a government installation, no charging on the base of course...

Re: PlugIn Day September 28

Anyone interested in staffing a booth to provide practical information about your experiences, apps, after market devices and modifications? Would like to do this at Long Beach in the morning and AQMD in the afternoon.
I signed up to be in Long Beach at 7:30 to help set up, but should be able to do a shift in the booth after that.

See you'all tomorrow!

Since the first Saturday in October might be busy with the
Great Park Solar "festival", should we have Gatherings
on the 12th and 26th?

Thoughts or suggestions?

Either pair of dates would work, Gary.
We're planning the Great Park meetup for Sunday the 6th, so having the Cerritos gathering on Saturday the 5th would be okay.
Or we could go with the 12th and the 26th if people want. (I'm busy on the 19th, so I can't make that meeting, but that's fine).
