Sorry I'm on night shifts this weekend so I was sleeping while y'all had fun. Would like to hear what your favorite houses were! :)

Sorry you couldn't make it, Jeremy, but glad you got to see the houses the other day.

So far, I liked the Santa Clara, USC and Harvest houses. I'll probably go back next week to see the Czech, Cal Tech and Stanford houses since the lines were too long this weekend. I'll probably try riding the e-bikes, too.

JasonA, great picture, good resolution for the forum.
Post more when you can.
Did you pick up 3 adoptions on the left?

I am planning to go Thursday, and maybe more
to see it all. We will see how my stamina goes.

Breakfast was great, I enjoyed talking with you all,
and seeing your 5" display.

Hello,

Nice meeting everyone that was really our first Nissan gathering event but we had a blast and nice to see all the other leafs! Ours is very happy to be back on the road and seems to be working 100% perfect after rebuilding a nearly scrapped Leaf. I'll post a series of photos showing the work on the car in another area of the forum that is appropriate for such stuff.

I really liked the Cal Tech home thought it was very unique and made super good use of space.

Thanks,
Steve

Shut the place down after dark? I'm impressed and amazed at your staying power. What all did you do for all that time?

Gary, that is hbleaf, Steve, and his family. Great guy with a fascinating background in DCQC industry and lots of knowledge about charging. Jason and Allen were excited to talk with him. I predict a growing relationship for Steve with some local LEAFers.

Welcome Steve!

We left after 7.. and just so happens that parked right behind me was a red Model S with lic "AC PWR" or "AC Prop" ?? can't remember.. was so tired..

At the Spectrum.. we had dinner for 2+ hrs.. I went from 63 to 259gids during that time.. Allen got enough to hit Mitsubishi with Dory... but my GE Wattstation app said I finished at 10:20pm... I think by the time all us finished talking in the parking lot.. it was 10:45 or so..

A long day indeed.. and then drive back up to Sylmar.. :shock:

Just another 19 hr day Leaf meet.. :D

Hey, Boomer. We ended up at the park a bit before 11a, so just ahead of you and the group. (The heat was already feeling intense.) We toured just a handful of the homes, including that of the Czech Republic, Stevens, and Team Capitol DC. As the lines grew, we decided to check out the area towards the Pavillion. We ended up spending a bit of time in the Pavillion. They had a nice mix of exhibitors. Had a nice conversation with one of the UCI PhD students working in their Energy/Environ Engr group and their work with alt fuels/energy/hydrogen fuel cells. Also, met Richard at the PiA table.

We later bumped into Allen and LeafyD, and JasonA and his wife, over at the Toyota test drive area. A bit underwhelmed driving the PiP, though, since the LI battery was not charged up for EV mode. Not surprising, though, given the (site) circumstances. Nice tool kit TY gift, though. Thanks for the tip, Allen.

The kiddos were troopers, but as Dori noticed, they (and we) were getting a bit limpy around 3p-ish. We headed out while the rest stayed on site to grab a bite.

We'd like to return later this week to focus on the remaining team homes we missed. Thankfully, it's so close. The cooler temps as well as a rested pair of knees will help too.

Oh, and we saw the nice 'cluster' of Leafs in the lot as were leaving. Nice showing. :)

Thanks for the report, JPV. Sorry we missed seeing you guys, sounds like we almost bumped into you but didn't quite. Glad you all had a good time.
