    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:

    [​IMG]IMG_1723.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    Had some cookies...

    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.

    [​IMG]IMG_1846.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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])

    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.

    [​IMG]IMG_4603 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

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

    [​IMG]IMG_1852.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    We finally spot some fellow Tesla travelers at Atascadero.

    [​IMG]IMG_20170604_092335 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

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

    [​IMG]IMG_1854.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

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

    [​IMG]IMG_1860.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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.

    [​IMG]IMG_4626 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    And a classic car shot in Morro Bay.

    [​IMG]IMG_4629 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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.

    [​IMG]IMG_4655 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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.

    [​IMG]IMG_1916.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

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

    [​IMG]IMG_1924.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

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

    [​IMG]IMG_1927 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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.

    Many of my buddies were hanging out there this trip. That's how the Belgians caught a few good pics. Hoping to catch some "in the wild."

    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.

    [​IMG]IMG_20170606_115541 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    Just saying.

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

    [​IMG]IMG_20170606_121356 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    Great looking Red Roadster.

    [​IMG]IMG_1942.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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...

    [​IMG]IMG_1964.JPG by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

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

    [​IMG]IMG_1968 by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr

    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.
