2011 Nissan Leaf SL: Waiting for a Tow (live)

Anyone else here following Dan Edmunds on Twitter? If you are you'd know that he intended to try a round-trip commute from office to home (46 miles) to office (another 46 miles) on one charge.

He didn't make it (I'll let him explain why in another post-- his math was right but there were, as happens in real life, some unforeseen occurrences which he's tweeted) and is currently waiting for a tow on the 405. "I should have made it with no problem. I had a 7 mile surplus and I never drove faster than 53." reads a text he sent me seconds ago.

**The tow truck driver just drove past him. And with no turtle showing, he's going to risk the 5 mile drive to our photo studio**

** He's made it to the studio-- not our office-- thanks to a sub-freeway speed and ample use of four-way flashers**
