  • NOPETROL’s First Playdate

    Don Young from Shelter Island and his MINI E, Got Plug?, came by on Saturday, August 22 on his way to New Jersey. There was a MINI E gathering in Montclair, New Jersey that afternoon and it was within reach of my house but not his. He only needed a booster shot so I hooked up Got Plug? and we went to breakfast. We also stopped at Southaven Park so I could show Don my trains. After about an hour and a half’s charge and, of course, a photo shoot, they were on their way to New Jersey.

    I had other things I had to do that day so I join Don with NOPETROL. Perhaps I can make it next time. I’d also like to arrange a picnic for MINI E Pioneers on Long Island sometime soon. If anyone’s interested, drop me a line.

    Don returned around 8PM and Got Plug? got another electron boost while we chatted over dinner. Got Plug? didn’t need a full charge to get home so, when we returned from dinner, Don and Got Plug? were on their way.

    Thanks, Don, for the wine and the tee shirt. It was a nice visit. I hope to get to Shelter Island for a visit soon, too.
