Cole Porter anyone?

Don't miss the chance to drive the RAV4 EV on the test course. There is room to accelerate, maneuver and burn some rubber.

Nice to see everyone and talk. Considering that this wasn't an EV event, it was surprising how much EV networking occurred. Hopefully it will lead to some very valuable results. Plug-In America was well represented by Richard, his kids and a friend.

Met a new member of the Leaf community named Chris at Mitsubishi. Boomer- if he attends the meeting Saturday, be sure to ask him about the plug-in Panamera!

Edit: Anyone interested in dust caps or dummy inlets for your J plug? http://erroneus.myevblog.com/buy-plastic-parts-here/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I might order some. It may be beneficial to do a bulk order to save on shipping.
Alternatively, you can get a 1.5" rubber cap for under $3 at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Fernco-1-1-2 ... lRR_CQtpgI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Something like these flexible caps might be good,
although I would prefer yellow, or even red,
instead of the black. I just guessed the size.

Re: SoCal region LEAF Gathering HTB Cerritos 12 Oct 2013

I went back to the Decathlon this afternoon for a few hours to see the houses that I'd missed and to test ride some electric bikes.

I really liked the UNLV, Stanford, Cal Tech and Austria houses, and I was glad I went back.

There were still lines at some of the houses, but today the crowds were retired couples and groups of professionals wearing business wear and carrying cameras. I asked a question once and three people in the crowd responded before the house team member had a chance to say anything. Pretty funny.

I was amazed at the UNLV house by the decorative screen walls on the patio. The scene of a mesquite branch is made ENTIRELY of large and small dots laser drilled into metal sheets. There are no colors or pigments added to the metal. It's just incredible. I'll attach three pics that I took with my iPhone. One of the pics is a close-up so that you can see the different sized holes in the metal. It's hard to believe that all of the design is created only by those holes. I was told that the artist took a photo, made it greyscale in a computer and then used that image to guide the laser drill. Impressive.

(Note: there are colored items on the other side of the screen wall, so there is some color visible, but it's just some extraneous materials stacked on the blacktop.)

I went yesterday morning, and for my first pass down the houses,
most were not open yet. I ended up helping at the Plug In America
booth for a couple of hours, and then saw the Solar car (impressive)
on the way to drive the RAV4EV, which was great.

Getting tired, I looked at about 5 houses on the way out, and
had some nice chats with the students about there life-altering
two-year experience with their Solar House project.

Was Tom's LEAF parked up front?

I hope to go back today.
See you tomorrow at the Gathering in Cerritos.

Re: SoCal region LEAF Gathering Santa Ana 26 Oct 2013

Next Gathering, Saturday, one week from today, in Santa Ana.

Who is likely to make it?

I plan to attend.
Robert is otherwise obligated.
Boomer is likely, as usual.

I hope to have my Due and Display based mini-QC simulator,
and a simulator for the car's QC Port to show.

But, I admit, only vaguely interesting, even to nerds. :D

Anybody need/want an Android "phone" or bluetooth OBD device?

I'm a good bet to be there, Gary. No real surprise there, though, right?

I will try to make this one. Although, I think the distance may require I take that "other" EV.
Too bad, since I'd like to get an Ah reading on the LEAF from someone's Android Bluetooth thing.
Maybe at the next Cerritos meet-up.
