    Rick and I will be leaving Hagerstown around 8:30 the morning of July 4th. Join us for a photo of the two car convoy!

    We'll be sporting some of the graphics from our @TeslaRoadTrip 2014 trip and a new map built for this year's run. We'll also be using our now-standard rally numbers.

    Screen shot 2015-07-01 at 5.43.48 PM.png

    Hope to see you somewhere on the trip.

    Watch for our tweets... we'll be glomming on to #drivefree and tweeting as often as possible.

    See you all in 9 days - safe and happy roadtripping!!

    p.s. LOVE the graphic, maybe next year... fwiw, I will be taking my future co-pilot out to an empty parking lot on Friday morning to teach her how to drive (starting with the Prius :), so I'm really, really working to make it happen!!

    Looks like a blast! I am trying to find a way for me to make it down from Wyoming. If I end up going I might see you along the way.

    You guys have a safe drive. We are in Rapid City now. Drive was good. Not sure which route you guys are taking but we passed a number of highway construction in OH, MN & SD. Certain segments have one side of the interstate closed so traffic is sharing one side with single lanes per direction. But speeds were still relatively high. It rained quite a bit in the mid-west segment. Love the 80 mph limit out here.

    I'm not even attending the conference this year :(. There is a small chance I could drop in for a few hours, but I didn't see the point in that.

    Thanks for all the good wishes. Eujinc, we're taking the northern route so your traffic warnings will come in handy.

    Thanks eujinc. Great photo.

    California bound early tomorrow am. When we get to Denver we're stopping for lunch at Kimbal Musk's restaurant, The Kitchen. Probably the closest we'll get to Elon on this trip:)

    Bedding down for the night in Maumee, Ohio after four Supercharger stops. It was a great day -- very little traffic, thankfully. We and the dogs are having great fun.

    Thanks. It was my wife's suggestion after a few quick launches when we first got the car. It was also the name of the nemesis in Iron Man 2 (which Elon played a cameo) and so we brought a mini Whiplash with us on this trip.

    At the Worthington, MN supercharger ...

    Are you still getting into Denver on the 7th? We are heading to Denver tomorrow and will spend a few days in Granby but will be in the Denver area on the 7th.We spent today in Mt. Rushmore and Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park. Spectacular scenery. IMG_6927.jpg IMG_8962.jpg IMG_8953.jpg

    I'm consider meeting up with you from SLC Utah on, but I have my factory tour Friday at 1:30pm. Based off of your schedule what time would you roll into Fremont?
