    I charged there today. Awesome location for me going from NC Triangle to NoVa so can avoid I-95. Charged to 220 and it got me home. Behind a Hyatt Place and a terrific shopping center. We hit a nice coffee shop called GRIT, and Trader Joe's IMG_1773.JPG

    You have been in this since the beginning and it would be a shame for you to miss it. I am ok with 6:00pm Sunday. I will attend unless my cousins returning to Florida stop by at the same time.

    Awesome! Let's do it! I created an event to RSVP to.

    Event: Charlottesville Supercharger Ribbon Cutting

    Join us Sunday, September 17th at 6:00pm at the brand new Charlottesville Supercharger for an unofficial ribbon cutting!!

    We'll meet at the Supercharger at 6:00pm, and for those interested in sticking around for dinner, walk over to Travinia Italian Kitchen in the same Stonefield complex.

    Ribbon, balloons, and an over sized pair of scissors have been ordered :)

    Stopped by this morning and charged. It's an easy walk to Duck Donuts (which is amazing). It's nice that the HPWCs and Clipper Creek chargers are still there as well for potential spill over. fullsizeoutput_43bf.jpeg

    They aren't strict about them. Even if you ask they are usually open to it. I have stopped for 2 hours and had lunch when I was on a trip.

    Friends, I just got word that an official ribbon cutting is in the works of being planned for Friday, 9/22 at 3:00pm. The event will include state legislature, local businesses, Stonefield mall management, and Tesla and will be announced soon. We'll need to cancel the ribbon cutting plans, but if anyone is still interested in getting together for a social at Traviana at 6pm on Sunday I would still be up for it.

    BTW- my son lives in C'ville and I was planning dinner there anyway, so don't make that long trip if it is out of your way. Enjoy the official ribbon cutting. ;-)

    IMG_9972.JPG Was there today again in the AM. Only one at the stall. Quickly went from this (fast charge) to that (Slow). The charging cable was hot when I disconnected it. Any idea?

    Looks like you're almost at capacity. Charging will slow down the closer you get to full.
    I'm enroute! 25 min out.

    Although we had to skip the unofficial ribbon cutting, we still had a great showing and it was great meeting with the awesome Tesla family. Great seeing everyone!

    Here are a few photos from the meetup today:

    If anyone is attending the ribbon-cutting, I could use a lift from the airport just 5 miles north of the Supercharger. As long as the weather holds, I'll be flying in to document the event. Planning on landing at 1:00 and leaving at 5:00. Tesla EVents Let me know via email: john at daviscustomdigital dot com.

    Does anyone remember the Hamilton, NJ ribbon-cutting?

    If your flying in via private plane, they do have a courtesy car at the FBO.
