    Hello All! - Welcome to @TeslaRoadTrip 2015 - "Reach the Beach" !!

    @TeslaRoadTrip 2015 – “Reach the Beach”
    April 17-19, 2015 - Salisbury, MD


    @TeslaRoadTrip 2015, our second annual East Coast Tesla gathering is well into the planning stages! Last year, over 50 Teslas came to Washington DC from as far away as Boston, Miami, and Chicago for "All Superchargers Lead to DC". This year we expect to accommodate many more cars with six Supercharger stalls and additional charging located nearby.

    Model S and Roadster owners will get together, talk about all things Tesla, take a scenic drive and have some fun on the beach in Ocean City, MD. We also plan to have a reception Friday night and an event dinner Saturday evening.

    The same team that put together last year’s event (along with a few new members) are currently hard at work hashing out the details to make this event fun and memorable. This year, we’ve decided to have “Reach the Beach” in the spring to make it easier for people to attend and enjoy the fairer weather.

    Please see wiki post below to register for the event and get more information.

    We look forward to seeing you April 17-19 in Salisbury, MD for @TeslaRoadTrip 2015 - "Reach the Beach”

    Drive Your Tesla on the Boardwalk!

    SPECIAL Boardwalk Drive Event for Reach the Beach!


    We have some exciting news to share. @TeslaRoadTrip 2015 has been granted unprecedented access to park a row of Teslas to display along a nearly 300 yard stretch of Ocean City's famous boardwalk. While the town of Ocean City has hosted many car events, we are told that @TeslaRoadTrip will be the first group ever to display cars in this coveted area between the beach and boardwalk.

    On the afternoon of Saturday, April 18th we'll have our cars parked on the concrete “tramway” adjacent to the wooden planks, just a few steps from Fun City Arcade, Fisher's Popcorn and other popular "OC" establishments. This is the beachfront's center of activity with lots of people walking around and is an awesome spot for photos!

    Afterwards, we plan to parade north on the boardwalk itself -- complete with police escort -- then out to the street where we will head to Salisbury to freshen up before dinner.

    We are thrilled about this new addition to the Reach the Beach event and Ocean City's unique welcome for us. If you haven't done so already, register now and guarantee your spot on the boardwalk. This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity and space is limited.

    More information and registration at www.teslaroadtrip.org.

    P.S. Please help us spread the word. Forward this to your Tesla driving friends and share on social media.

    It was a great event last year. I'm glad it is in the spring this year though. Looking forward to it.

    Count me in.

    Unlike last year, this is far enough from home that I will need to charge somewhere near Salisbury.

    Glad they have a SC. in Salisbury. I used to do this trip ( centreville to chincoteague island) without it! Good news is Chincoteague has 8 - 250 VAC 50 AMP at the Robert N Reed Waterfront. (Shore Power connection) and 30 AMP. You will need a CS6365P adapter Shore power to NEMA 14-50 to get the 40 AMPS to a Tesla Model S.

    i added this location to plug share last year. And have done this trip 3 times. So looking forward to it. Also Maddox Campground has 50AMP service too.

    This sounds awesome. I may be filming a movie in April, but hopefully I can do it!

    Looks like we are in! Both cars if it will work. We go to O.C. often and are so happy about the Salibury SC.

    O.C. seems surprisingly bereft of charging options. You will see spots on the way on your apps. We know of EVGo in Queenstown with a 1772 (3.3kw, ugh) and a Chademo. Also a guy has installed a 14-50 at his store at the bottom of O.C. Hope we can find some more.

    Can't wait for Spring!

    Count me in too. I know Salisbury somewhat. We have 2 airplanes based there although I haven't been up that way in almost 4 years.
