I left the office thinking that I should be OK on the way home, but I could stop at any of the high speed chargers (usually 40+Kw) for a short while if I needed it. I didn't - the traffic was remarkably light, and it wasn't that hot, so I only ran the AC for a few minutes. I got home with ~60 miles of range left :o)

Tillamook remembered us.
After the wedding, we drove back to the hotel and managed to snag the last parking space by a 110v socket, so we left the car on charge overnight again.
We pulled in to San Luis Obispo with about 35 miles' range left, and went and found a level 3 charger while we had a drink at Starbucks. Having added another 100 miles or so, we rocked up to the hotel. They had 110v sockets in part of the car park, so we plugged the car in using the level 1 home charger, set it to 12A (rather than the default 8A) and left it charging overnight.

I've taken the week off to do things and stuff, and ended up at the airfield helping Chris change the oil and grease the pre-rotator cable on his gyroplane.
He then wanted to look at the brakes, and we managed to take them from pathetic to non-existent. Yay. Still, he managed to get home.

In the afternoon I built a proof of concept for a table that Vic wants for a plant by her desk at work, but she declared it good enough by itself, and put it in the car to go to work with her tomorrow.
I then spent some time cooking burgers for a pile of people at the EAA hangar. I didn't feel like pulling the hangar open in the heat, so I went home after that.

We flew back along part of the American River on the way back to Cameron Park, and dropped them off. Chris had managed to lose the key to his hangar, so we left them waiting for his wife to bring him the spare and flew back to Lincoln.

I took the gyro out for a while, did a couple of landings, then headed over to the house before remembering Vic had gone to Folsom, so I flew back to Lincoln and put everything away before heading home.
