    We had talked about this a year or so ago, but nothing happened. Is anyone interested in a McGregor, TX visit to SpaceX development?

    Sure.

    I can't find the original thread, but the impression I got was that a tour was permanently off the table.

    Found this note in the DFW Google Group from July 7, 2014:



    So, maybe it's time to try again...

    I've been toying/vocalizing this idea with the Tesla Road Trip crew for awhile now as well, but haven't done anything towards actually making it happen. I think we would end up having to limit the number of cars and people. If left "unlimited" we would likely overrun Space X and Tesla's charging infrastructure.

    If there are no other SpaceX connections, I have a friend who's been there in LA for 5 years. Had a pretty sweet private tour a few years back.

    Every bit helps. Please see if that connection back to the McGregor facility could make it happen.

    Los Angeles. Hawthorne specifically.

    I don't believe they have any operations in Louisiana.

    I thought jimmyo was talking about Hawthorne as a different option.

    Any movement on this? Got some falcon wing doors I'd love to share with falcon rocket designers.
