Tomorrow's Gathering should have LEAFs, Teslas, Rav4EVs, a BMW i3, possibly a Coda,
and hopefully an iMev. Come see, learn, share some of your experiences, eat, chat,
and generally have a good time. Leave nourished in body, heart, mind, and soul.

I plan to be there very vlose to 8AM, and stay until at least 11.
CU There, Gary

For the first time we had No LEAFs at the Gathering, just Teslas, a BMW i3, and a Coda.
Next time, in 2 weeks, in Santa Ana, we should have more.
But, we had some good discussions.
Cheers, Gary

:o :shock: :o :shock:
Seems like a lot of people saw the LEAF as an interim lease only electric vehicle.

As more production EVs have become available, primarily EVs with
noticably to substantially longer Range, many owners have evolved to
newer vehicles. The LEAF remains an excellent deal on the used
market for someone who has only limited range requirements.
With supplemental (away-from-home) charging skills, it is still
a very capable vehicle. One of our group has over 100,000 miles,
and just bought a new battery pack (about $5600 out the door)
so he now has new-car range again. Not bad for about 4.6 years.

Our next Gathering is in 2 days, 1 hour, and 26 minutes, in
Santa Ana, CA, on 17th Street, at the Hometown Buffet just
2 blocks East of the I-5 freeway.

We hope to have a brand new blue S70 there, with new tint, but
probably arriving late (if he can get the car from the tint guys).

Don, with Pedego electric bicycles, should be there in a Tesla.
See you there, Gary

I have posted some new thoughts about Net Metering in the SCE thread. I may not be at the meeting tomorrow, but I would be interested in whether other folks feel my idea has promise.

Last Saturday we had 14 at the Gathering, including 4 ladies.
Tom made it, but Don (from Pedego) did not.
Lots of good discussions.
I think we had LEAF, Tesla S, BMW i3, Coda, Rav4EV, and one other.

The new Blue Tesla S70 was still getting a tinting, but might be
able to join us next time, December 5th, in Cerritos.
