[Oeva-list] Drive to the coast

We've made a few trips in our 2012 Leaf from East Portland to Lincoln City. Depending on how much charge we begin with we've stopped in Newberg for a quick charge if needed, then Spirit Mountain at their conveniently located QC, then plugged in in Lincoln City overnight in the 110 of the house we rent. Loaded with 4 people and supplies the car's made it there and back just fine.
There's also a QC in Sherwood just off 99 that we've used when needed.
We're at 26k miles on the Leaf and haven't lost any bars yet. It's hard to say if we've lost any general capacity as the last Leaf update reset the mileage guesstimator and so I've lost my point of reference.
I still love driving my Leaf, it's a great car. When Tesla comes out with their smaller sedan the Leaf will be replaced with the $30k-ish Tesla, in red of course. :)

> I took my Leaf to Pacific City on Sunday. The charging experience wasn't too bad. I broke down and bought the monthly charging package from AV. I'm not sure if it will pan out for me but $19.99 for unlimited charging is better than standing around waiting for tech support to authorize a single charge for $7.50.

> I drove to Pacific City and enjoyed lunch with my son at the Pelican. I made it back to Lincoln City with a few miles left on the battery and found my way to the Cultural Center for another quick charge.
> It amazes me that they don't place the charging in more prominent locations. We walked about 8 blocks before we found anything of interest. My son enjoyed the puddles and the rain, not to mention the salt water taffy.
