It appears a Tesla Roadster is given the honor of leading the procession, followed immediately by a BMW i3. Numerous Tesla Model Ss, a few LEAFs, and a number of a very small EV model.

Even though our BMW i3 owner did not make it to yesterday's breakfast
at the Hometown Buffet in Cerritos, we had 11 bodies, including a new
visitor who was looking for opinions concerning his order of a Tesla Model S
which he had to finalize today. Probably a silver S70, but there were those
who were trying to encourage the 85 kWh battery size. Hopefully, we will
see what he decided, perhaps before Christmas.

Tom, very nice video.
Cheers all, thanks for attending.

Next HTB garhering is in Santa Ana on 17th Street, 2 bkocks East
of I-5, on Saturday, October 24th.

On Saturday 17th of October, some will be meeting at the Knowlwood
resturant (one block SW of I-5 via the Sand Canyon exit) at 9 AM
to eat and chat before going to the Solat Decathlon at the Irvine
Great Park nearby. I hope to attend.

Hoping for much shorter lines to tour each of the (roughly) 14
houses, I will probably go on Thursday, when the temperatures
should be much lower than this weekend.

See Boomer's comments in the nearby Solar Decathlon thread.

It looks like Thursday the 15th to the Solar Decathlon, about 11:30 for me.
Anybody else going on Thursday?

Then, breakfast at 9 at the nearby Knowlwood resturant on Saturday
the 17th, possibly going back to the Solar Decathlon afterwards.

Cheers all, GG

With about 10 bodies at the table, we had one of the longest Gatherings
ever, with the last three leaving after 2 PM. Lots of good discussions from
Auto-Steering in a Tesla, Chademo charging an iMev, and Solar Panels to
dealing with Diabetes and the temptations of potatoes and pasta, to
the heartbreak of losing a dearly loved creature, human or otherwise.

A demo ride in an Autopilot Tesla S to show off the newly released
Auto-Steering feature was enjoyed by three.

Next Gathering is in 2 weeks in Cerritos, then 2 weeks later back
in Santa Ana again. Good to see you all, including one who stayed
overnight in a hotel to be able to join us for a little while before
leaving for a Saturday mid-morning performance.

Re: SoCal LEAF & EV Gathering - Cerritos - 7 Nov 2015

Tue Oct 27, 2015 7:10 am

Our Gathering on November 7th 2015 will be at the Hometown
Buffet in Cerritos. Take the South Street exit from 605, go East
2 blocks, and then North one short block, turning right into the
parking area. The exit from 605 is the first exit south of freeway 91.

I plan to arrive at approximately 8 AM, perhaps with a brief charging
stop at the Superchargers in Fountain Valley if I am low on fuel
or have gotten started early.
