    Ok - If I do a range charge overnight in plymouth before going to C&C. The route google maps shows... Plymouth -> Airport for C&C -> Harvard, MA -> Milford Supercharger is a total of 214 miles total and thats going to the long way to Harvard, MA - so I think I could make it with the rest of you.

    But the C&C event looks massive and interesting and may want to stay a little longer than an hour... What is the Harvard MA event supposed to be like?

    I know there are a lot of you Model S owners in the Boston area! Let us know and I'll add to the list at the top of this thread!

    It's not nearly as big as the morning event. Guessing about 50-100 cars.

    Awesome... just noone drink in my car!!! icon8.gif

    I agree. But, my 10 year old will be joining me for this day event. He may have more fun with the car shows (including helicopters) than me... "may"! icon6.gif

    I would like to spend at least 2 hours at the Cars & Copters event before heading out to the Harvard, MA event since the C&C will be so big and I assume quite exciting....

    Aaron

    PS - I asked my local service center about getting a second charger installed, but they don't carry the full kit there and I would need to order it online and wait for it to be delivered to the service center for installation, so not in time for this weekend.

    Aaron,

    The Plymouth charger is 240v 30amps, I live in Plymouth and I'm working with the town to install Clipper Creek CS90 units. I am a Tesla model S 60 owner and on Plugshare.

    What time do you guys think you'd get to Harvard? I value my sleep to much to get to Plymouth in the morning, but Harvard in the afternoon might be nice...

    Thinking of being in Plymouth from 9-11ish. Then drive back to Harvard, so around 12:30ish.
    What is everyone else's thought?

    That sounds good to me! As long as we can stay ar C&C for 2 hours, I'm happy!
    May need to take you up on your offer to charge a little before heading back to Milford - we'll see.
    Wasn't able to get 2nd charger installed in my car this week unfortunately...

    Guys -

    I'll try to get there a little early (with coffee!) so I get a spot on line and perhaps secure a space for our Model S's!

    Guys -

    If we want to park together at C&C - we have to arrive together. Suggest we pick a place to meet and drive over together - will this be possible for all of you?

    The Starbucks I'm going to get the box O coffee at is only 4 miles from the airport - here's the address....

    127 Samoset St, Plymouth, MA ‎
    Myles Standish Plaza

    How about we all meet there at 8:30am?

    Aaron

    ------------

    PS - Was just told by one of the organizers of the event that we can park in the "Exotics" section on pavement with more ample space for a $20 donation vs. the $10 for a regular parking spot - I think that would be GREAT!

    You should definitely plan to meet ahead and arrive together, like we did with 4 cars at the American Car Show. It's impressive when multiple Model S's glide in silently en masse, and parking together lets you spell each other a bit on the Tesla Talking, while visitors can compare colors and features.

    Remember to plug in your UMCs, so no one can accidentally turn the car on and drive it! And it's a great conversation starter.
