Sorry I dropped the ball on getting the thread title updated.
Now, it is updated to remind us of our last Gathering, in Cerritos.
In a few days, I will update it again to Oct 25 for our next
Gathering, on 17th street in Santa Ana.

We had 17 bodies on Oct 11th, and a bunch of Rav4EVs.
A very good meeting, with lots of discussions and questions.

I demonstrated the WiFi based extraction of log files from
the Raspberry Pi based black box CAN data logger that we are
working on, that we are using to collect (almost) all of the
messages from the LEAF and Tesla S OBD (and other) CAN buses.
We have found that 115.2 kbaud is not sufficient to capture
all the messages from a busy TS CAN bus. However, we are
apparently driver-limited in the RasPi right now. Perhaps
someone with Raspbian (OS) experience will surface to help.

We could try the logging system on the two CAN buses in the
Rav4EV, if somebody sufficiently nearby Mission Viejo wants
to try it out.

As more electrics come out in enough quantity to make it interesting,
we could use people who have an interest in logging their EV's data.

Cheers all, and thanks for the great turnout.

Hi gang,

Tomorrow I start home from visit with friends at Pagosa Springs. Yesterday in Durango I met local Tesla owner as well as another couple from CA Bay Area who were about to take delivery on their Model S at Fremont factory. They will get the cool new radar and cameras that will support Auto Pilot.

I also saw a Volt and a Leaf in Durango. The city has nice ChargePoint J plugs at their Transit Center, free trolley bus around town, 1 bus every 20 min.

To get here I used Superchargers in Barstow, Flagstaff, Holbrook, Gallup, and Farmington. I made it to Kingman SC with 41 Rated Miles, but I had stopped at RV park in Needles for 30 insurance RM. Since headwinds are predicted for return leg to Barstow, I will divert from Kingman to Las Vegas SC, stay in LV Friday, see Red Rock Canyon on last day, Sat. Thursday night will be at Grand Canyon, charging at RV park while staying at lodge.

Logged into Rasberry data logging here, everything looks good.

Today drove Gallup to Grand Canyon S Rim. Arrived in time to see canyon in late afternoon sun. 29 F predicted low for tonight. Left Tesla charging at Trailer Village, rode shuttle bus to dinner at Bright Angel Lodge and then on to my room at Masik Lodge. Will ride shuttle back to car in morning.

While charging at Holbrook a fellow about my age pulled up to ask questions. Very committed to reducing his own carbon footprint, owns a Coda which he has stored CA and he hopes to get an affordable 200 mile car soon.

I have Verizon cell service and Wifi here for iPad, but car lost its ATT cell service soon after Flagstaff. I discovered I could freeze nav screen map with last cell update and gps would continue to update car's position on the route, and continue to provide route directions.

Tomorrow 175 miles and 4K ft down to Kingman SC, then on to Las Vegas SC and motel for last night on road.

Tom, we are glad that things are going well on your trip, and
we look forward to seeing a map with your route and charging
locations... and pictures, please. If you put all your pictures (or
all that you are willing to share) onto a USB flash drive (or SDcard,
or Micro-SD card), I can bring my laptop to copy them, and write
copies for others that bring a suitable flash drive / SD card.

Safe return, Cheers, Gary
