    Hi Everyone, hope you guys are having a good summer. Are you guys interested in getting together soon for another ride? I'd like to put together another meet up before the end of summer.

    My original thought was the Napa Valley region and tour some wineries, however, it is unfortunate there's a huge fire up that way and even more for the people that live there, so I've come up with a second thought. (I was also thinking if you would like to donate canned food or items like batteries, pet food, I can collect them and drop a box off to the Sonoma County Fire Dept or Red Cross)

    A ride up the coast on 101 to Point Reyes Lighthouse and onto Bodega Bay. I believe the coast is clear (pun intended) from the heavy smoke in the interior areas and if we get lucky, and there's no fog that would be even better. :) Here are two options that come to mind:

    (1) We meet in San Francisco and then onwards across the Golden Gate Bridge (if you are already in Marin, we can meet you at the first stop off the GG Bridge at that tourist spot, I guess the official name is called Golden Gate Bridge View?)
    and up the scenic roads hugging the coastline towards Stinson and on to Point Reyes Lighthouse and then Bodega Bay and circle back to the Petaluma Supercharger.

    (2) Or we meet at the Petaluma SC and then roll through one of the smaller roads like Tomales Rd so we don't need to backtrack down the 101 and hit Point Reyes Lighthouse and then Bodega Bay and then circle back to the 101.


    Do you guys have time to meet for this end of summer drive towards the end of August or early September?

    Interested in hearing everyone's thoughts, suggestions.

    Please post your availability here:

    Hey Rich, Sounds good. Glad to participate. It is all about the date fitting into the schedule. I prefer a Saturday. Also keep in mind we have National Drive Electric week coming up mid-September. We can also discuss possible lunch stops along that route.
    Once again, thanks for organizing!

    Hi Guys, just wanted to make sure everyone from the last meet up and ones who couldn't make it got to seeing this. Hopefully you guys can make it.

    @Randy Spencer, sounds good!

    @Blu Zap, I don't mind doing a Saturday.
    the National Drive Electric Week event in the city is Sept 12, the one in Marin is Sept 15 at the Bon Air mall. I actually go there all the time to that Jamba Juice when I'm over in Marin. I have some ideas for lunch stops I'll post up once we figure out the group. I'll have name tags for everyone to write their username on so we won't get confused.

    Let's get this together!

    JFYI I'm definitely interested, but not sure how my weekends will work this fall, mostly due to not knowing my son's soccer team schedule. :) If I'm free on whatever date gets chosen, I'll be there!

    Bruce.

    Rich, I appreciate the Saturday schedule if we can do it. Join us at Bon Air for National Drive Electric week on 9/15. Many South Bay and other area National Drive Electric Week events are happening the next Sunday, 9/16. I'll be at the Palo Alto event supporting Acterra, an environmental group promoting EVs. Big week for EVs.
    Looking forward to this get together. Glad to help as needed.
    BTW I'll be at the NorCal Tesla owners meet up this Saturday 8/18 at Spann Vineyards in Kenwood. Check it out. Tickets are still available.

    Sounds great! I also have interest but not sure of my availability yet. Hopefully one of those September weekends will work.
