    @TeslaRoadTrip 2014 – “All Superchargers Lead to DC”

    On President’s Day weekend, February, 15-17, 2014 we would like you to join us in commemorating the 1 year anniversary of the original @TeslaRoadTrip with a memorable and fun weekend in Washington, DC. Model S owners from Maine, Florida, Chicago and Tennessee have already committed to participate in this great event, all enabled by the, almost completed, eastern corridor and coast to coast Supercharger network.

    This is a grass roots event, organized by many members of the TMC community.

    We met this past weekend to outline the @TeslaRoadTrip 2014 weekend events. Here is what’s on tap for the weekend.

    Outstanding idea Aaron and others. February is not the best month to visit DC but then again part of the point is that Model Ss are hardy and can conquer all. So can their owners! I live in the DC area and am in. Looking forward to it. Will reply officially to the proper address.

    Happy New Year to all owners, friends, and visionaries.

    I believe this would be an excellent opportunity to invite our elected Federal officials to drive/view/explore the Model S from real owners, to ensure that negative legislative proposals (from big oil and others) do not occur. This could be a fun event at the Capitol and it also would be a great photo op!! I don't know if my car will be here by then (scheduled delivery in late February), but it sounds like a lot if fun. Good luck!!!

    Looking forward to the @TeslaRoadTrip reunion, this should be a blast - we'll definitely plan on being there.

    Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year 2014, see you in February!

    All -

    Please remember, if you plan to attend - even if you're local, please respond to the email link in the 1st post (along with your forum handle) to get you on our list and let us know if you'll be staying at the hotel (1 night or 2) or just driving in to attend.

    Also if you're local, please let us know if you're able to provide your home charger for attendees just in case we have an unexpected overflow of cars and too few chargers. Because of this predicament, we may have to limit the number of long distance attendees for fear of not being able to charge enough cars...

    Thanks!

    <groan> I'm in Seattle this week, not flying back until Sat or Sun. I'll do my best to make an appearance, but I'm going to miss most of it.

    A suggestion was made to convoy to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport and was stated - "seems like a natural for this group" - and I have to agree!

    Perhaps this could be done Sunday afternoon or on Monday morning for those that are staying.

    Thoughts? Discuss!

    The Udvar-Hazy Center is normally open 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM. They often stay open an extra hour on holiday weekends like President’s Day, that would give us till 6:30. Admission is free but parking is $15.00. The distance from Arlington is 28 miles via I-66 and Rt. 50.

    Aaron--

    That's a good idea, especially if you can negotiate a parking discount. Technically there's no admission but the parking rate is steep. Great photo ops as well if Tesla can pull some strings regarding access (though I don't know if you really want to make those efforts).

    Driving from Arlington I would suggest a route that includes a trip across Key Bridge through G'town, crossing the Memorial Bridge to GW Parkway then 193/Georgetown Pike. Another option is to head out MacArthur Blvd/River Rd on the Maryland side of the Potomac and either have a mass ferry crossing at White's Ferry or a bridge crossing at Point of Rocks before heading back down to Udvar-Hazy.

    The Shuttle Discovery is not to be missed. Just being able to stand under her is a treat.



    No EVSEs there and parking is expensive. Definitely recommend car pooling.
