Maybe get a "caravan" together.
That would be one heck of a MPG challenge.
2100 miles for me...one way.
I was there in 2007.

Willie,
InsightFest 2014 will be a little less public-education focused and a bit more Insight-community focused.

It is really meant for us Insight owners to get into the nitty gritty of our cars and really geek out on our Insight stuff. Kinda of like the hangout at Mike D's in the fall. (Though nothing could be as awesome and as low-cost as Mike's. Free camping on the lawn? Breakfast cooked by his lovely wife? Priceless!)

Yes, we are part of the larger Green Drive Expo Reunion, but we can organize our own schedule/events throughout the weekend. For better or worse, there will be more things offered than you will be able to participate in.

The gathering in NY in 2006 was the best, in my opinion. Some commercialism, but enough things going on to really keep you active. MPG run, autocross, drag timing, and show and tell.

A "West Coast Wagon Train" would be awesome.

I've earmarked this thread.

This is terribly tempting. All my friends seem to be contemplating it. Heck, if Russ can make it all the way from CN, surely I can get er done. Putting it on my calendar, planning..............

Jim,
You've gotta come! Your brand of commentary always makes me crack a smile.
I promise not to lose any bolts from you car this time.

Now if we could just get DogBite trailered here for display. :)

Maybe JimE will let me take Dog bite? :evil: He can drive a gen 2 for a change. :cool:
Not on your life. Trailer at best. Not putting those miles on a 2409 mile car. Friendship only goes so far;)

I'll do my usual and throw in a free pcb from my collection for an attendee name drawn out of a hat at the event.

OBDIIC&C, IMAC&C, IMA BOOST, CURRENT HACK, or SIMPLE CYCLER etc your choice.

If the organiser can let me know the name, address, pcb reqd of the winner after the event.

Have a good one :)

I'm looking to go, it will be a matter of scheduling it around other things that I don't have the dates for yet. I went to three years of Green Drive Expo and I'm looking to meet everyone again for this event.

Count me in. I just saw this thread a moment ago and wouldn't miss it for the world. On another note, if the left coast and right coast ever have another Insight weekend can we have it on different weekends? Love to attend both. JMHO.
