    Alas, that was where my lovely bride went to school. I just hung out with the drinkers and wrote snarky stuff for the paper.

    I'd love to get one if I could get someone smart like you guys to do the install. I'd happily pay extra as penance for being lazy and incompetent.

    RED, WHITE, GREEN,BLACK and the new BLUE. We will do a number of installs at Road Trip 2016.

    Good times! Great people! I don't own a Model S yet, but I'm renting one to bring down this year. It will give me a full 3 day test drive experience, including AutoPilot.

    Prior to the boardwalk display, I recorded this video in 2015. I was a guest of Jeffrey Cadman, one of the organizers this year and I rode with him in his Model S.

    It's great to see the videos and pics of friends from last year's awesome event! The planners have amp'ed it up a bit to make this year's Kingsmill event even more awesome.

    Cool. Registered, paid, and room reserved. Got to do it quick to get my #88 again.

    We're still trying to locate an area that has a parking lot big enough and can use a drone for the shot.... Stay tuned.

    Although its not officially part of the event, I plan on staying overnight in Norfolk on Sunday and on Monday will be driving down to Kill Devil Hills, NC on the outer banks to visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial. I've wanted to visit the site ever since I was a boy and now is the perfect time! Plan to spend part/all of the day down there enjoying the sites and exploring (maybe a hang gliding lesson on the sand dunes!) then head back to Norfolk in the afternoon/evening.

    It's 80 miles one way, so easily doable round trip from the Norfolk Supercharger. If you're interested, let me know via PM and we'll "officially" put something together!

    You might be able to get access to one of the big satellite parking lots for Busch Gardens across Pocahontas from the brewery. They don't use them that early in the year.

    We are in talks with them already - unfortunately they are instituting a no-drone policy as we speak. Still may be good for non-arial group shot.

    I have a Rav4EV which has a Tesla battery, motor, and onboard charger. I am looking forward to the event.

    Ah. The only other really big parking lot I can think of belongs to the school and I've no idea if one can even negotiate with them.

    Arron, Just to give you a heads up their is a 40 amp charger at 8863 Caratoke Hwy about a mile or so after you come off the Wright Memorial bridge ( Main Land Side ).
    I used it last September on the way back home. Should you decide to take a run down to the Cape HATTEARS LIGHT HOUSE the Inn on Pamlico Sound has a Tesla destination charger.
    If you go down say hello to Steve Nelson the owner of the Inn. The Inn is one of the better places to stop for dinner, just make sure you make reservations.
