Dear Capital & Saratoga Region,
I'm not sure if any of you are getting a little cabin fever being stuck in your place of residence... but I sure am! Due to COVID-19 we are still postponing social-interactive gatherings to ensure the safety of our club members, but I believe I have found another way for us to all gather in person this time ( not just in the virtual world ). Like many of you, I bought my Tesla for the thrill of the pure acceleration and performance, and I believe I have found a way for us to share that experience together.
I was initially planning for us to go to Prospect Mountain, but I called today, and the gate is closed and will be for the next few weeks. The roads leading up to the main parking area there are some of the best that I know of, it's about 5.5 miles of pure driving bliss! Since we can't go to Prospect Mountain, one of the other best locations I know of that also ends with a fantastic view is Thacher Park.
We will all be gathering at the Crossgates Supercharger at 2:00pm, and then riding out together in formation to Thacher Park. The drive to Thacher from the supercharger is about 25 minutes, and it is also one that I personally find very engaging and thrilling. Once we arrive at Thacher we can park our cars and enjoy the view. If you want to get out of your cars, you are more than welcome to do so, just ensure to stay 6ft or more away from anyone that you didn't come with in your car.
Since I'm sure many of you live in different areas, I will not have us leave to reconvene at the Crossgates mall Supercharger. You can walk the trails, check out the new visitor center... and there's actually a charging station at the visitor center parking lot!

P.S. Since there doesn't seem to be an exact name/location for where we will be parking here is a pictures for reference. We should be arriving in convoy, but just in case you break off for some reason...
