It's only 87 miles for me but we'll be there.
That's great Jason. We're glad to have you.

Which CHAdeMO are you talking about? The one at Nissan? I haven't heard about many problems with it--others yes.

Mike will be there. He drives a RAV4.

http://api.plugshare.com/view/location/1459Last post was an overheat. I called there and someone there said a few times it's been hit and miss. Tony reported a full charge but it may have been cool/cold.

My luck it'll be hot that weekend :roll: . Darn filters

Kindly, Jason has offered to ride with me,
and even drive the S85 if necessary, so that will add
both fun and safety to my Bakersfield Adventure.

Jason,

Yes, the ride with Gary sounds like the right thing to do. I was just out there and it . . . was off with a temp error. I tried to reset it by holding the stop button down, then both the stop and start button. Neither worked. I told the salesmen watching me to tell the sales manager and I posted it to plugshare.com.

I am new to this, but it seems like the DCFC are down a lot and that's no good. It suggests the technology is not ready for prime time--or at least the way Nissan rolled out their charge stations.

Just a reminder of our meeting next Saturday at the Golden Corral, 5001 Ming Avenue Bakersfield at 9:30am.
We will have many famous guests including Tony, GlennD and JasonA. All forum members are invited, especially those in the San Joaquin Valley and Northern LA county. There is a Nissan DCFC at the local dealer and multiple 14-50's at a local RV park. I have a Leviton 40A that can also be used if you send me a PM.

If there's any members (LEAF or other EV'ers) coming from the SanFran valley, Tom (Red Tesla), Dory (LeafyD) and Gary (Mr.Gid) will be first stopping by my place in the morning. 7am or so, and we'll be caravan'ing up there.

If someone else wants to tag along or charge at my house, I've got PLENTY of power ;)

Jason, Glad you're using SolarWorld panels. They're good and made right here in the USA.

See you tomorrow, assuming all goes as planned.
We will have 4 or 5 bodies, in 1 or 2 vehicles.
Cheers, Gary

Gary, et al.

If you need to reach me, my mobile is 661 472 1657. You're already on the road so this will likely miss you.

We had a good time and it was great to talk shop with such an experienced crew. Gary, Tom, Jason and his wife, Dori drove up in Gary's new Tesla. They joined Mike Bornstein, his son, Stefanie, and myself from Bakersfield.

Alas, all good things must come to an end and after three hours, we packed up and called it a day.

Again, thanks for coming all the way up here to Bakerspatch. We appreciate your support.

Paul
