    Well, I finally broke down and made a reservation to attend TESLIVE.

    On prior occasions I traveled with my wife to the Tesla Test Ride and GET AMPED events in California, and we had great times. However, so far the airfare for a convenient route (Sarasota to San Jose) is so expensive that she suggested that I travel alone this time. Depending on how geeky the break-out sessions turn out to be, I'm rationalizing that her sacrifice may actually be in her self interest. :redface:

    TMC is checking with Tesla to see if it will be feasible to conduct factory tours, but this has not yet been confirmed so the date is currently unknown.

    Any other Floridans planning on going?

    I'd love to but can't. It's visiting weekend at my kids' camp that weekend. Only weekend I couldn't make it this whole summer. :(

    Not that I'm in FLA, but exact same problem for me. And I was hoping I could drive down, if they get the super chargers installed in time. Would love to meet everyone. This is so epic/monumental, what's happening right now.

    I would love to go. Still thinking about it. If anyone finds good airfares please let me know. I think this event will be historical in future Tesla gatherings to come.

    Welcome to TMC! Note that TESLIVE is now sold out but they do have a wait list for spots that may open up.

    I'm unable to go. I would have loved to do so, but as we mentioned earlier in another thread... by the time they announced the final dates I had all my other plans cast in concrete. Will have to enjoy the event vicariously through the rest of you.

    It's official, we'll be there, more details here:

    BTW, booked flights from MIA to SFO with Virgin America and they're offering very aggressive rates right now. They change every day, but, costs were about the same as travel from NYC.
