Just over 1 year ago, Tesla’s entire fleet of vehicles accumulated its first billion electric miles. Only 3 months ago, Tesla hit the 2 billion mark and now the automaker just surpassed 2.5 billion miles. To get to the next billion a little quicker, Tesla is embarking on a 3-month road trip around the world to showcase the “uncompromised capabilities of Model S and Model X to new communities of enthusiasts.” more…

Only 2 dates in Canada and I'm away on vacation for the Ontario date. My wife would like to have a go in the car at one of these events rather than book a test drive.

I RSVP'd for my some-what local stop, Skamania Lodge - about 1 1/2 hours east of here. :)

@MelindaV,

I just tried to RSVP and don't get any screen change or any confirmation...Did you get any sort of confirmation back to ensure they've received your RSVP?

UPDATE: Disregard....made multiple attempts and finally got one to take....you DO receive a "Confirmation" email from Tesla with enclosed date, location and information for those interested!

Perth is part of Australia. When is the roadshow coming to visit us?

Model S's have now driven Perth to Brisbane return (13000+ kms) and Perth to Broome return (4700+ kms). Undoubtedly, some of the most EV unfriendly routes in the world. The two gentlemen who have completed these trips are true EV pioneers.

I'm headed to the Reno Gigafactory party on the 29th from Southern California... Taking the long way there... Going up to Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver before we head down to Reno... It's a lot more fun drive than just driving to Reno.

Planning a Model3OwnersClub West Coast meetup with @MelindaV hopefully while we're around Portland.

If you're enroute and want to have the opportunity to say "hi" and talk Tesla, EV, sustainable energy, but NOT PokemonGo ;).

We're following I-5, Superchargers and the WCEH.

Best way to track me is via Twitter.

You could let people track you on an app called Glympse for those of us on the east ish coast. Then we can vicariously travel along with you.

I'm familiar with Glympse...

I tend to work on Twitter for realtime.

I tend to post on my blog for your reading pleasure... Will probably do it a few weeks after the trip.

See last year's trip cross-country.

Wish I could be there but can't. Please take photos and video of Model 3 test drives. Our members here and viewers would love to see any progress!

Thanks!

I fully intend to... Twiter is always best to catch me real-time (especially at events)... I might Periscope, I wonder what the coverage for mobile services will be at the party. Tesla usually provides wi-fi as well, but I've had it overwhelmed at a few of the events.

I did hit a snag in that I got sent two emails for the "lottery" and not my invite, but have sent emails to the "right" departments for help.

So, we'll see.

Live coverage is OK but quality video uploaded afterwards is preferred :) We can even feature it for on (with credit of course) on our show.

My shaky hands and mobile device and no professional camera tend to make my video shoots "ok" quality. So, we'll have to see about video.

I just got back home from the Tesla Electric Roadtrip event at Skamania Lodge in the Columbia River Gorge. Tesla had a Model S and X there from the Portland store and think I heard one of the staff say they were expecting 80 people. Just as a guess, I'd say there were at least 35-45 owner cars with about ⅓ being Xs and one Roadster that came up from NorCal.
Hopefully, next Tesla event I am at is a Model 3 test-drive event!
