    Was so great to meet you guys and I've really been enjoying the trip tweets. Oh... and that Sig Red is just painfully gorgeous...

    You're great ambassadors for the brand!

    Naturally you're welcome to use/have any of the pics I posted on the other thread of your Cranberry stop-- or if you have a upload site that can take uncompressed (and un-watermarked) photos, I'm happy to give them to you.

    Enjoy the ride and savor the adventure-- so envious!!

    Awesome pics, be nice to see them at higher resolution!

    Wish I'd had the vacation time left this year to participate as it appears you had some awesome road trip adventures!

    I've only made it as far as St Louis from Raleigh on the SC network over the Memorial Day weekend earlier this year, we were on a compressed schedule so between driving and charging we spent about 36 hours en-route with no layovers for each of the outbound and return trips. During daylight hours, got to play a lot of soccer with wife and son in various parking lots along the way!

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Here are a few more photos I took this morning. Aaron stopped to take a photo and it was soooo quiet.

    We are currently in Beaver, UT. They had a power outage here last night. Came back on at 7:30 AM.

    There will be 13 cars in the caravan by the time we reach Bonnie's BBQ. And yes, we are having tons of fun!

    And looking forward to the recap during the event too. One question I have is whether any cars in the caravan are 60's, and if that has been holding things up for the 85s?

    All are 85s, and one of them has over 90,000 miles.

    Living vicariously through your tweets. Have a great time and hope the hail was kind to the cars.

    Did that Roadster make the entire trip? Wow those Road/Driving pictures are looking amazing. Is that blacked out from Virgina?

    It was a lot of fun meeting up with you on your trip, hopefully next year I will be able to go to TMC connect as well. Here are the photos/video I took at Mauston Supercharger

    It just dawned on me that so many of you are there at Bonnie's tonight. Does anyone need a place to stay tonight? We are not going to be at Bonnie's but have a spare bedroom and can plug you into our charger. From Bonnie's its about 30 minutes (In Sacramento proper)...

    Great seeing everyone in Green River and at the Beaver Supercharger Queue.

    All stalls filled at Green River, but just pretend, because two stalls were down due to a bad Supercharger Cabinet. At least this was an overnight for the group and with some cooperation, all the cars were shuffled through the two working Supercharger Stalls:

    Because St George is not done yet, and the need for a near 100% charge in Beaver to make it to Las Vegas, there was some queueing in Beaver, UT. It was all good natured and with the good weather it was an opportunity for some nice chats. It also gave me some time to break out the quad-copter and get some pics and video of the scene. That's my sig red queued up on the right and me in the shadows behind it operating the quad-copter.

    Fantastic to see these trip postings. Wish we could have fit the trip into our schedule.
    What do you use for the decals? I assume they come off without impacting the paint finish?
