Are you going to put together a proposal for a Cleveland Fest?

I'd love to help you organize one, but someone needs to put together a Fest Team and get a location and proposal together.
I like the idea. What's the weather like around Memorial Day (May 26-28)? Columbus Day (October 6-8)? The latter would give you a little bit of extra planning time. You'd be surprised how quickly May comes.

If the two of you could team up, I'm pretty sure more Texas folks will join in.

Fred has been traveling. It took him a couple of weeks to get back to me with a question about an order.

Jason and I would make a serious effort to be there, although it'd be in a Tesla... less of a TDI than tomo's HHR!

I can provide some advice to local planners, but my involvement in the planning will be extremely limited.

Planners could also reach out to Robbie and Jim for their insight.

Should I bring the tow dolly so the Telsa with it's lesser range can be recovered?

Either that, or plot the "supercharger" stations along the route...
