Just signed up. Santa Clara Hyatt Regency this year.
Planning to be there, as well. I'll be the guy in the aloha shirt, driving the ocean blue 70D. Dsmith may be going, too. Let's coordinate.
If I go I will probably need a ride. if Iceman will make room in the back for me.
Oooh, so tempted! Want to go but not sure if I can swing it with my schedule this year. Have to check a few things ...
Let me know your flight in and I'll do my best to accommodate the airport to hotel transportation.
My business trip is from July 5th-10th. I wonder if there's a way to make my return trip layover in Cali and I could spend 2 days there before continuing back to Hawaii...
It's worth a shot! Does anyone know which airport is the closest to the event?
San Jose airport is right next to Santa Clara
Thanks!!! Now to see if the corporate office can accommodate. Even if I miss half of Saturday it would be worth the stopover.
Yeah can't make it this year because of work schedule.
Well, I've done it now. I made my TMC connect reservation. going to say at the Hyatt for "TMC connect" days and at the Hilton across the street for the 6 days prior. that will give me a chance to recover from the long drive (my MS will float won't it?) and see some CA fireworks on the 4th. I plan on trying to get over to Great America to ride the roller coasters too. Too bad Bonnie set her picnic for the 12th. I will be on the morning flight to come back to HNL. why can't they have late PM flights to HNL?
Should be fun!!
You guys should do the factory tour together!
Eileen and I are doing tour Friday at 11:00.
ouch.:crying: my CC company saw the charge for TMC Connect and the fraud department called me to confirm the charge. guess they figured I wasn't cool enough to go. or I was too cheap to pay for it with my own credit card.
StevenM, hope you can make it. There's room in the Ocean Blue 70D for you, DSmith, Iceman, and me. We could get a group photo and send it to Nanimac while she's waiting patiently in Hawaii for her Ocean Blue 70D to arrive. Trying to work out a deal with Mugsy to add a little more delay to Nanimac's car, but he's definitely more expensive this time around.

Dpodoll, glad to hear both of you will be at TMC Connect! Do you have any type of confirmation for your Friday at 11:00am factory tour, or is that your #1 choice through TMC and you're waiting to find out for sure?
thanks for the ride, just in case I can't test drive Nanimac's car I also have a "Economy car similar to Chevrolet Aveo" what ever that is, if Iceman kicks me out of PapaFox's car I can still get around. I'm still not sure if I remember how to drive an ICE car.
Confirmed. Requested both through TMC Connect and through delivery specialist. Not sure which one got us in, but happy to be there.
Don't be alarmed when you hear a rumbling noise coming from the frunk and remember to turn the car off when exiting
that's what got me in trouble last time with the rental I had. It had the auto engine shut off when you came to a stop. I pulled into a parking garage and started looking at pamphlets for local attractions. (no rumble) and I was so used to just getting out and leaving it never occurred to me that the car was only on "pause". What made it worse is that it would shut off at stop lights going up hill and didn't have hill hold. when the light changed to green I had to do a 1-2 shuffle to keep from rolling backwards while the engine auto started. with all those knobs and buttons (and a 3 inch display) I couldn't figure out how to shut it off. once I did, it would reset the next time I got in the car. I would have to figure the secret handshake to turn it off again. that's why I am going to "borrow" nanimacs car before she gets it delivered.:tongue:
Dsmith, Elon tweeted this link a few days ago. It is an electric car driver's opinion of an ICE car. Perfect for your situation!
