Camping last night went well — it was very quiet. There was no 220-volt plug at the campsite, so I plugged the car’s stock level 1 EVSE into the 30amp 110 outlet (with an adapter). It was 100% charged by the time we got up in the morning.

As I mentioned yesterday, our trip today was to be very short. First we explored the beach near our campsite for a while. As we were preparing to leave, I was approached by an elderly gentleman traveling from Prince George, BC who had a lot of very good questions about the LEAF. I gladly answered them, of course.

Then we headed straight to Cannon Beach. We drove around, had lunch, drove around, walked around, checked in to the inn, drove around, ate dinner, drove around, walked around, and drove back to the inn. There’s some sand and rocks out there. At this point we’ve seen a lot of sand and rocks along the coast.

Despite all that driving around, we only used about 35% of our battery capacity, as you can see in the charge level map above. We might not even charge for our trip tomorrow up to Astoria (I haven’t looked at the numbers yet).

On our way up to Astoria tomorrow, we’ll stop first Seaside to check it out. Our campground is actually west of Astoria, at the very corner of the state. It’ll be our last stay in Oregon!
