Lat:  36.70308 (N 36°42.185') (N 36°42'11.1")   (WGS 84 datum)
Lon:-121.66862 (W121°40.117') (W121°40'07.0")
(V: Determined by GPS site visit.)

3/3/06: Both Gen 2+ SPI chargers have been replaced -- one with a TAL SPI, and the other with an EVI Avcon charging station. This was an EAA repair/upgrade project.

2/14/06: Report from Dru Sutton indicates that damage has worsened, and neither charger is working. Repair efforts by the Electric Auto Association are underway.
5/20/04: The paddles both have cracked pucks, and one has a cracked handle. But both appear to be safe and functional.

2002-2-1: MagneCharge list: change from LPI to SPI. Also added Map Grid [Ed].
It's about 55 miles to the nearest San Jose charger (Costco Almaden Expressway). I drove the San Jose to Gilroy leg on Monterey highway (west of 101, parallels the SP main line for the most part) since it is easier to drive 55 there than on 101.

Driving directions:
Directions: Highway 101 to the Laurel Drive exit in Salinas. Go west and make a right on N. Davis Road to Westridge Shopping Center. Make a left at the Applebys restaurant and follow the driveway to the chargers on the left side of Costco by the tire center. You can see Costco from the freeway. Located at 1339 N Davis Road which is just west of 101 and can be reached from Boranda from the north or Laurel from the south.

Things to do:
8/02: We went to the Northridge Mall Cinemas while charging. It's only about half a mile from the Costco as the crow flies, but since the freeway is in between, we took a cab for the 2.5 mile trip. The only problem was that the cab response time was slow.
-- Steve Casner
4/8/02: Lots of eating places and stores nearby. There's a motel across the highway as well. - TD
