    I'm planning on driving from San diego to Palo Alto on Friday September 30th via the 101. I plan to use the 70A chargers along the way. How many other SoCal roadster owners are planning to drive and charge along the 101 robobank route?

    Anybody traveling North along 101 for this event is welcome to charge at my house in San Luis Obispo on this day. PM me for directions/address. HPC and 5 Nema 14-50's. There will be a BBQ and office party in process and you are welcome to participate. I will be home on Sunday as well for any return traffic. My house is much better than waiting in the Robobank parking lot!!

    Thinking about it. Without a reservation though, we just might wait till it comes to the store.
    BTW Malibu has three new J connectors. Nice shopping and food there.

    Where are the new connectors? The ones listed at the Civic Center or? I plan on being in the area in early September, so want to make sure I know all my options. (And yes, great shopping and great food there ... I miss Nobu's. The sushi in this area is smothered in sauces. It's not a good thing.)

    Yep Civic center is back up. I was part of a group that worked with city hall to update them after the remodel. Two Js and a SPI. Also another J at the Country Mart but that spot is tree'd since it will be full of leaves all the time.

    I'll bring a car cover. Thanks for the info (and for getting the Civic Center spots updated).

    I think Bonnie got the joke and was going along with it. She's bringing a car cover to protect her car from all the (Nissan) leafs.

    I thought it was pretty clever.

    :).

    (I wouldn't really bring a car cover on a roadtrip, especially with a passenger. Packing the trunk is a science. But I might bring vfx some nice cats. I do have a boot bag.)

    Is there a rake that will fit in the Roadster trunk? That would solve the problem.

    I thought she missed it thinking there were actually trees she would have to worry about sap, etc.. A Rake reference is active, exaggeratedand a bit less subtle.

    Now she wants to let the cat out of the bag! :)

    And it feels weird talking like she is not in the room.

    Well 'scuze me! At least I didn't make some lame joke about Bonnie's boot-cats getting out of the bag and scratching the bark...
