    The next scheduled event is the Mount Washington auto road on Saturday, August 3rd, it's at dusk so it will go into Sunday, close enough :)

    Mt. Washington Auto Road in a Tesla?

    Oh shoot.. I hope you didn't pay to set it up too. I had previously set up New England Tesla Motors Club (Boston, MA) - Meetup where we could track things like this. If you'd like to become an event coordinator on that meetup, please just let me know.

    Dear Colleagues of the kWh:

    Looking loosely at a drive Sunday afternoon, July 14th - a warmup for the Auto Road August 3rd.
    Route? Something Boston, something Ocean. Whoever can make it can make it...
    Just putting the thought out there.
    Discuss. Conjecture. Backfeed, regurgitate, eruct-ate, and get a thought in print.
    No big planning needed. We can see if we have a quorum and take it from there.
    Chime in if you have a minute.
    Thanks.
    Wait is that Teslive Time? Oops. Clarify please. Thanks again -

    Okay so the 14h good for a few, but many at Teslive. Of course! Hard to be disappointed with that...
    1. Seems we should await the return of our esteemed colleagues, as they represent us at Teslive;
    2. I wish all involved a safe and happy happy trip. It'd be rockin good fun to be there.
    3. Looking to a mid-summer nights afternoon for another drive...

    Should we bring back the Saturday drive?

    Portland area group getting together for lunch and a drive.

    I believe we had 14 cars at the start, but only 12 are shown here. It's such an awesome sight to see a string of Tesla's (with DRLs on) silently winding down the road. :)

    And then 5 of us went further on up the scenic highway (in the Gorge), coming back across to the Washington side...

    Great day!

    Somehow missed the Portland, Oregon pics above - just great.
    Seems we are coming due upon an early Fall Sunday drive.
    Last year only 120 Model S' existed worldwide at this time. Go ahead, correct that...
    Believe we should show Autumn what it was missing.
    Ideas?
    Simple Boston-area drive or NH or western/ central mass?
    First Sunday in October?

    1st weekend doesn't work for me, but if there's a quorum for that date, go for it!
