    Agroup of us is organizing a Tesla road trip to Sudbury on the 20th of January, a Saturday, to commemorate the opening of the Concord ( Vaughan Mills ), Barrie North ( Bayfield ), and Sudbury chargers.
    The weather is slated to be mild that day in Sudbury with a high of -4 so it should be a nice drive up with as many Teslas as possible.
    We meet at Vaughan Mills between 8 and 9 am and then head north at 9 am sharp. We will probably have breakfast in Barrie while we charge. We will do lunch in Sudbury and then head back through Parry Sound and perhaps Huntsville before charging at Barrie then back to Toronto. We might also check out the Bobby Orr Museum in Parry Sound while charging as well.
    Anyone with a Tesla is welcome to join. We might even have a Model 3 join us. A Tesla rep we met Tuesday night had just tested the Sudbury to Vaughan Mills with a prototype Model 3 and said it was a breeze even with a Model 3, 70 KW battery. He told us he might join us. Bring your camera. Should be fun!

    This is tempting! How long are you expecting the trip to take? Abetterouteplanner is suggesting 12 hours for my Model X 75D (assuming a stop in Hunstville)

    Highly recommend visiting Science North. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Sudbury earlier this winter before the supercharger went in.

    If Markham SuC opens from now to then, will you change the plans?

    This sounds fun! Hoping another one will be organized down the line as I can't make it for this date. Have fun everyone!

    Never say No. Maybe when more Trans Canada Super Chargers open we'll have another epic extravaganza trip.

    There seems to be a lot of interest in participation. In order to manage the crowd and charging logistics, please sign up for the Sudbury trip here: www.teslazoom.com/sudbury.htm

    By the way it’s going, we could have a convoy of 30 Teslas.

    Wow. You'll need to be careful. The leg from Barrie to Sudbury can be a bit long on a cold winter day with anything less than a 90D. You can stop at Parry Sound, but you'll be a while sequencing all of the cars through.

    It will be fun.
    I was also wondering if anyone has a trailer hitch on his car, we could always put one of the excess Superchargers from Vaughan Mills on it to give us some extra charging if needed. LOL!

    So I'm still a big-old maybe on this, but would love to participate. Are we really concerned about charge space? I've got a MX75D so definitely a little more anxious at being at superchargers for long periods of time with a wait

    Folks, please register so we can have a rough idea as to how many cars will be part of the convoy!
