The #Leaf made it to DIA with wife, mom-in-law, and three suitcases.
Now to snuggle up in the car, while it charges back up.

Today was one of my first "chilly" days in the Leaf. Battery was still pretty good, but I did finally gave to test the steering wheel and seat warmers on the way home tonight.

Needed to plug in so I could go back out tonight, but both of the nearby EV stations were in use by other Leafs! 
Hoping a trickle-charge in the garage will do the trick. 
Good problem to have, right?

Been lurking for a couple months, so I might as well introduce myself, finally. My name's Rob, and I've been learning to longboard (mostly cruising/errands and quick commutes) since my 37th birthday in May. 

My wife picked out a Sector 9 Bamboo Lookout after talking to some of my online friends who longboard, and I've been totally happy with it. 

I'm getting to the point where I want to start learning some basic slides...mainly to stop/slowdown. Tips/tricks/etc are always appreciated.

Hi! After my 14yr old Saturn finally died, it was time for a "nice" car. We lucked out, and found a perfect 2012 Nissan Leaf SV, and have been using it as our only car for about 2 months.

Corpse Flower at the Denver Botanic Gardens is expected to bloom either tonight or tomorrow! 
This is super rare (won't bloom again for up to 10 years!), and when it does, it releases a stench that simulates rotting flesh. 

So, I'm not the only one getting handfuls of spam followers every day, right?
Am I doing something wrong here?

Anyone having Hangouts notification issues on iOS? Can't figure out what's keeps the badge stuck there...

Final Boulder County Cares shift for the season. We were doing surveys only tonight, so we opted for "regular" bikes instead of our cargo bikes.

I think our cargo bike pilot was a success this year, so I hope we'll get to pick it back up in October.
