    Would any of the organizers for Teslive 2014 care to share thoughts about timing and venue. Some of us (nerds) try to arrange vacations in the summer around kids' schedules, airfares, work, etc. and the more advanced notice we have the better. Thank you.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Bonnie and everyone else gets to see the "final" Model X beta at Teslive.

    Bonnie has regretfully stepped down from the TESLIVE steering committee. She is confident information on a 2014 conference will be posted in due time.

    (She is also enjoying posting in the third person.)

    Seconded.

    I had such a fantastic time in California this year, I'm considering it as a family vacation next year (around Teslive). The kids would get disneyland, my wife would get Santana Row, and I'd get Teslaland. But, I'll need to start to make plans early in 2014.

    A few of us are trying to drive there from the east coast using the super chargers. Dates would be appreciated. Hopefully it falls over summer camp for the kids.

    It's always good to look ahead for planning and organising etc.

    And it's maybe too early yet, but could it be possible to organise a TESLIVE event in Europe (in a few years time)?

    I'd be happy to block out June or July if I knew which ;) Maybe I should just block out them both now. Since I'm not getting my X until 2015, TESLIVE is the highlight of my motoring year!

    I think we should expand to an alternate location in flyover country. Maybe St Louis or somewhere nearby. We could have a video feed on a big screen at the hotel from all the events, lectures, select break out groups, and even hot tub to hot tub. :smile:

    LOL. By alternate, I meant secondary (satellite?) location. Saving the travel distance. More of a center of the country type deal. Vegas is too close to Cali.

    You sure there isn't a Texas law against holding conferences representing non-dealer represented companies?:wink:

    LOL. Probably, but an estimated 90% of Texans are scofflaws anyway.

    I'd second that! My daughter and son-in-law live there, and I'm looking forward to the Supercharger rollout so I can make the trip from the Toronto area.
