I have three long - very long - road trips planned when I get my CT. I think it would be fun to meet up with other CT owners at stops along the trips and to join up for legs. We could travel together in a group, have fun and really turn some heads!

Here are my planned very long trips:
- Winter of 2021/22 starting in CA and traveling to the tip of Florida and back
- Summer of 2022 starting in CA and traveling to Nova Scotia (NE tip of North America) and then to Alaska before heading back to CA
- Winter of 2022/23 starting in CA and traveling to Panama! and back (maybe back :cool: )

Total is about 30,000 miles in my Tri-motor 500-mile range CT.

Anyone interested in meeting up along the way or traveling legs with me?

Anyone else planning long trips?

For years I've been thinking about sailboating up and down the East Coast with the dog....changing latitude only so it is comfortable at night. A little hard for the dog to "go for walks." And I didn't want to do it in the "crusty" version.
Soooo... I am thinking of floating on the Cyber Prairie Schooner instead... Following the thermometer...and the dog is feeling a lot more good about it.

mmmm . . . East coast sounds good. Maybe on the way back from Florida, I’ll swing up the East Coast! Maybe I can catch the cherry blossoms in DC.

People that sail around the world meet up at harbors to visit. We could do something similar with CTs!

- Summer of 2022 starting in CA and traveling to Nova Scotia (NE tip of North America)
Why stop there? The NE tip of North America would be St. Lunaire -Grique or Joe Batt's Arm both in Newfoundland and the latter already has a Tesla Destination charger.

Anyone else planning long trips?
Well I was hoping to make it to Joe Batt's Arm this summer but I'm not sure I'll even be able to get into Canada.

Good point. I could catch a ferry and keep going . . . !

Oh yeah! You got my attention. Check out my avatar photo––I'm into long-distance motorcycle riding. I'm praying my BMW 1200GS will fit in the back of the CYBRTRK. (with the tailgate up). Me and my bike and my dog are planning a lot of rides; lots of camping out; lots of hikes. On a side note, google the "Iron Butt Association." Maybe someone could establish a similar group for CYBERTRKs. Although a member of the IBA, I'm now way too old to care about speed. I'm more into smelling the roses and staying off the Interstates. (I'll be 80 when I take delivery of my CYBRTRK.) 'Gimme the back roads every time. On a further side note, if someone wants a fun trip, Google or go to Wikipedia and type in "Trans-Labrador Highway." This is a great ride. I did it this past summer on my GS1200. There are only a few small towns, so a charge will be a problem, but it'll be a neat challenge for the first CYBRTRK. (I suspect someone has already taken their Tesla on this road, even though, as of last summer, it still had 277 miles of gravel.) Oh, Canada has just recently opened up the Dempster Highway all the way to Tuktoyaktuk. It is all gravel, 560-miles. Not sure about charging up on the way, but hey, a fun trip for an adventurous guy in their new CYBRTRK. Good luck. I'll be doing it on my 1200GS when and if this coronavirus thing is over. If anyone wants info on the Trans-Lab, let me know. Oh, I highly recommend touring Newfoundland.

Mmmm . . . IBA . . . what should we use for long distance CT riding? SSBA? Stainless Steel Butt Association :)

Others have recommended Newfoundland. Looks like I'll need to extend my planned trip!

With the Tri-motor 500+ mile range (hopefully ++ by then) plus fold-out charging solar panels . . . pretty long trips are possible!

Let's join up for a ride and hikes! . . . I'm just a young whippersnapper. I'll be 67 when my CT arrives.

If you cross the TransAmerica Trail on your way east in the Summer of 2022 you may cross paths with our team! Would be great to meet up if schedules align.

Nice website and video! I'd love to join you for part of your trip. Can you make your route available on Google Earth format?

Thanks! Would be great to see you out there. We'll publicize meet-up points closer to the launch date, and we're always looking for suggestions on locations that work well for cybertruck reservation holders or other folks that are interested in driving along or seeing the trucks up close. We purchased the GPS tracks from the TransAmerica Trail folks (we aren't affiliated with them), and they are available for purchase at www.transamtrail.com.
