    To all who organized Teslive - Thank you for being so generous with your time and talents (and probably a few of your own $$, too) and putting together such a great conference. I know some names were read off at the opening session, but I'd sure appreciate a published list so all here can know who to thank.

    With great admiration and appreciation for your efforts, and with great expectations already for next year,

    Cattledog (and Cattlepup, by proxy)

    Seconded...what an effort and a major success off the bat (...sort of like the Model S). Can't wait for 2014!!

    I'll second that sentiment, Cattledog! I have some insight into how much effort went into the planning and execution of TESLIVE, and I'm really pleased to have taken part. Great event, great people! Can't wait for next year!

    Someone needs to reset the clock for next year! I'll start my planning now.

    Thanks for the Livestream.

    From personal experience in helping to organize an event such as this (for something utterly different)...

    If you have an idea of how much work this might be, then multiply that by a factor of at least 20. Then you might be in the ballpark.

    The TESLIVE organizers did a fantastic job. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole EVent. Major kudos to the team!

    A great big thank you from me too. I had a blast and appreciated all of your hard work. I also thought the event was awesomely organized. The factory tour, the vendors, the sessions, the party, the carpooling, and of course Elon Musk's q&a were all amazing. Thank you!!!

    Thanks to all the organizers of Teslive. I had a wonderful weekend meeting nice people and seeing some really cool cars and accessories. I also learned a lot from the discussion sessions and from talking with others at lunch. The scheduled delivery date for my MS is a week from today at the factory. The Tesla psychosis has started...

    Thank you to all who were involved in the event, especially the organizers. The best way I can say thanks...

    Where do I sign up for 2014? We're (Francis, Disco, and I) already planning a supercharger-supported journey for next year.

    I concur, had a great time and really appreciate all the efforts from the organizers.
    There were 8 Canadians there after toto arrived (kudos to him for driving from Montreal)
    Hopefully next year there will be an even larger Canuk contingent!

    Glad you guys enjoyed the event! (I'm still recovering :) ) Thanks for having enough faith in us to come.

    We're collecting a preliminary 2014 list here: TESLIVE 2014 - Info List

    DONE! Signed up! Great event and looking forward to next year! Would love to coordinate with Refuel and BC2BC. Next year we'll have such an amazing supercharger infrastructure I would bet we'll see a whole more bunch of Model S owners!

    Kudos to everyone who organized Teslive 2013. Great fun and very nice to put faces (and names) to online handles. Feels like the early day of Apple. Highlights were the factory tour, Elon's remarks, and the Sunday drive. All well done. Thank you and am looking forward to 2014.
