There is nothing more fun to do in a Tesla than take it on long roadtrips...

Two weeks ago, the first phase of our "https://goo.gl/vnxwRR']A Trip in Three Phases...[/URL]" and Phase 1 (https://goo.gl/vnxwRR']http://pascual.co/ActiveE/2017/06/a...tesla-owners-club-2017-leadership-conference/[/URL]) ended at a hotel across the street from Tesla's Fremont Factory.

The traffic was horrendous... It was bumper-to-bumper Teslas... ;)

Though the traffic loosened up for my panoramic shot.:cool:

Also I ran into this guy taking some pictures at the Computer History Museum.

Just kidding, we meant to hang out for the afternoon and I was taking @TrevP to the airport (as you would've read if you were on the Off-Topic section.)...

Even though we were at Fremont representing the Tesla Owners Club of Orange County, and Tesla was having the VIP Factory Tour event at the same time. We did get to spot some Model 3s...

Even though I was requested to STOP taking photos.

Not as great as the shots taken by @TrevP and our friends from Belgium, but I'm proud of OUR shots of the Model 3...

Our one brush with video was from afar... Still, that close to a Model 3 in action!


Remember the whole phase 1 of this trip is posted here "https://goo.gl/vnxwRR']A Trip in Three Phases...[/URL]" (https://goo.gl/vnxwRR']http://pascual.co/ActiveE/2017/06/a...tesla-owners-club-2017-leadership-conference/[/URL])

Looking forward the the next phases!!!
Wait no longer... This one is more a game of EV Bingo and spotting...

Phase 2 of this trip in Three Phases (http://pascual.co/ActiveE/2017/06/a-trip-in-three-phases-phase-2-bmw-active-e-electronaut-reunion-4-in-morro-bay/) involved traveling to Morro Bay for a reunion of the West Coast Active E folks. So, It's interesting to see what EVs we've all moved to from the BMWi Active E program.

This was a weird drive for us because this Trip in Three Phases has us using Fremont as a base. We're normally Southern California based and we've done this Morro Bay drive from that direction, and not going South.

We find ourselves alone at the Gilroy Supercharger for this early morning drive.

We finally spot some fellow Tesla travelers at Atascadero.

The Rock at Morro Bay was Sunny today. Quite unlike the last reunion.

And it was quite uneventful, but we've finally met up with EVeryone.

Looks like more of us left BMW, and quite a bit ended up with Teslas. All S in this group as I didn't see any X.

Getting ready for the photo.

And a classic car shot in Morro Bay.

We lost some folks, but gained some Bolt EVs for this shot. Wondering how many of those cars will be replaced my Model 3s in the next reunion.

And then we're back North.

We were going to check out Monterey, but decided there was too much traffic. Next time.

And Gilroy on a Summer Sunday Early Evening is a lot more full than this morning.

We did catch this sunset view of the Tesla Fremont Factory.

We used the hotel's Level 2 as it was a destination charger.

and went range charge... Looks like 252 is now the car's maximum.

Remember to get to phase 2 of this trip in Three Phases (http://pascual.co/ActiveE/2017/06/a-trip-in-three-phases-phase-2-bmw-active-e-electronaut-reunion-4-in-morro-bay/) on this link.

Phase 3 of this Trip in Three Phases (http://pascual.co/ActiveE/2017/06/a-trip-in-three-phases-phase-3-the-tesla-2017-annual-meeting/) is dominated by this year's Tesla Annual Meeting.

Lots of Tesla Spotting for EV Bingo in the Annual Meeting. But it was quite different to find someone who I suspect has this plate holding for his Model 3.

Just saying.

I'm sure this X's owner is a Star Wars fan...

Great looking Red Roadster.

The man of the hour. We had better seats, but worse pictures of Elon this year vs. last year's trip. I thought we were third row, turned out we were fourth row. I think last year we used a real camera with a zoom and this year, it was our mobile phone cameras...

And lastly, this car used submarine mode to get to the mainland for this meeting!

So that's our Phase 3 of this Trip in Three Phases (http://pascual.co/ActiveE/2017/06/a-trip-in-three-phases-phase-3-the-tesla-2017-annual-meeting/) all focused on the Tesla Annual Meeting.
