I think I've convinced her. However, we now have another obstacle... my AC compressor might be out. I have an appointment with the Denver Service Center next Wednesday to find out. It's drivable, but only short distances, and only in cooler weather.

Thanks for the charge offer! Here's our plan, assuming the roadster is fixed. Let me know if it sounds good. I've never had to charge in the wild before. I'll be testing my (bulky Tesla) J1772 adapter this week.
* Leave Westminster, stop at the City Admin Building in Colo Spgs, and charge for an hour while we eat brunch at Over Easy. On Sat, it should be $1 to park and free charging.
* Meet you guys at Boriello Brothers around 10:30a.
* Drive to CC & Parade around.
* Leave and head back to the City Admin Building for a 2 hour charge while we eat a leisurely dinner at MacKenzie's Chop House.
* Drive back to Westminster.
It looks like there are a number of other chargers around town with places to eat nearby, in case the City Admin Building is full or ICEd.

I was in the Buffalo Bill Days Parade in Golden, recently. The roadster really attracts the foxes ;-)

Tvuolo, hope you get that A/C fixed in time! Your plan sounds good. For amount of charging in Colorado Springs, go to evtripplanner.com to make sure you have enough charge before heading off to Cripple Creek and Denver.

As a matter of note, for all participants, BE SURE TO RSVP to the gmail address listed in the first post. They need to prepare your CERTIFICATE and FOOD!!! Please let the City of Cripple Creek know you will be there so they can prepare. Mac

I think I've worked out the logistics of joining with my Roadster. Now I just need to convince the wife!

I hope that you have one of the Model S to Roadster Charging Adapters for use with the HPWC's in Cripple Creek. See Model S to Roadster adapter for details and contact HCSharp if you want one. In the mean time, PM me if you want to borrow mine.

Have Fun!
 
Hey, Tuvolo!

Did you get your A/C fixed? Are you coming? We would LOVE to see you!

UPDATE:
This is turning into a wonderful event! We have SEVEN confirmed Teslas. We are on our way to TEN! Milo is bringing the TESLA tent! Events in Cripple Creek are still being revised and modified. I will keep you posted. It should be a great time talking to each other and the general public. Come see us! Mac

 
Hey, Rocky! Of COURSE!! Everyone is invited who is interested in Teslas! It will be a GREAT chance to talk Tesla with ACTUAL OWNERS! See you there! Mac

By the way, we are still holding at NINE cars with one more POSSIBLE! Come on Tesla owners! Come see us!! Here is a link to a Gazette (local newspaper) article about the rally:

There is a photo of yours truly lounging in my frunk! Hahahaha! Mac
 
So I know the rally is for Tesla only but if I happen to show up in my Leaf could I get some time on one of the charging stations? I'd love to come see all the Teslas and I will be an owner myself once the Model 3 comes out. :) I was interested in the Drive Electric Week event that popped up on the map in Cripple Creek too, but has since disappeared. Anyone know if this replaced it?
