Sondra,
Glad you both had a good time.

The best place to get a test drive of a Tesla is at the
Tesla Store on the upper level of the Mission Viejo Mall
(now called "The Shops at Mission Viejo", I believe).

Then you can tell us of your experience and ask
even more questions.
Cheers, Gary

Hi. Just wanted to send out a quick 'save-the-date' for a morning breakfast potluck on Saturday, Aug 29th @ 8a -11a at our home in Irvine, north of the 5 Fwy. This will be our official/unofficial 5th anniversary gathering! :)

It's been a while since our last go at this, and the group has expanded beyond the original LEAF-group ... to all things EV. All are welcome, including prospective EV owners. Whether a first-timer, or old-timer, feel free to join us. It's a great time to get your nerd on with like minded EV enthusiasts. Of course, we promise to not discriminate, whether you do CHAdeMO or CCS ... or SC!

The only requirement will be that you bring some edibles to share with the group.

If you need a charge for the return trip, we have a quick charger for those that might need. Oops. Heh heh. Just kidding. We have L2 (240v/16a) charging in the garage, and of course some L1 trickle charging.

There are several QC and L2 within 10 miles. Check your Plugshare app/site.

If interested, send me a PM, or post here. We'll start a 'sign up' in the next few weeks.

Thanks,
jp

Great, jp,
We have the date saved already.

This year, we should remember to put a "STOP" sticker on
the screen on the front door, maybe on other doors also.

Thanks a bunch for doing this.
Cheers, Gary and Nancy

It is amazing...I have been driving my 2015 Leaf for a year now, and not once I needed to charge it at home! My workplace in Irvine has free L2 charger, and Nissan provides free QC/L2 for first 2 years. So on all counts, a pretty quiet year and did not discover the local community in this forum. I will try to attend the next one in Santa Ana. Cheers.

Is this gathering open to everyone? I've recently just bought a Leaf and am hoping to meet up with some experienced Leaf owners for tips and suggestions. I live just north of Norwalk.

Thanks,
Jason

I encourage all kind souls to try to attend our EV Gatherings.

The next Gathering is a week from today, at the Cerritos
Hometown Buffet on South Street, just 2 blocks East of 605.
They open at 8 AM.

If you are considering ordering any variation of a new Tesla Model S,
you can get a $1000 discount by using an Owner Referral link, and the
referring owner also gets a $1000 credit toward future Tesla purchases.
You may use my OR link, http://ts.la/gary5482 if you so desire.

My rear-yard water-feature, a 51-inch high 3-tier fountain, arrived,
and I have ordered submersible RGB LED light strips (5 meters each)
to light both the fountain (and the two backyard 10' x 12' gazebos from Lowes).
I will bring pictures, and any interesting parts that happen to arrive.

See you next Saturday in Cerritos.
Cheers, Gary

Two days, one hour and ten minutes until...
our next EV Gathering. The Hometown Buffet in
Cerritos is 2 blocks East of the 605 freeway, and
a half block North of South Street.

I plan to be there very close to 8 AM, when HTB opens
for breakfast. Bring any Show-and-Tell items.
Cheers, Gary

From Norwalk, take 605 south, cross 91, and take the first exit, South Street.
Go East 2 blocks to Gridley, turn left (North), and then go right into the
first driveway. There are several QC stations in the area, and the one
at Mitsubishi Headquarters is further (about 8 miles) away, free, and usually
available on the weekends (and before and after work hours on weekdays).

Or, the Santa Ana HTB (in 2 weeks and 2 days) is just "south" (really southeast)
on I-5, exit on 17th Street, and go 2 blocks East, just before the train tracks.

Join us whenever your "real" life permits.
