Event Recap: Finger Lakes Summer Meet & Drive

July 29, 2019 2:49 PM | Joe Moore (Administrator)

Not even if weather was programmable could you ask for a more perfect day for a Meet & Drive event through the Finger Lakes!

We started the day at the Victor Supercharger and left as a caravan of 7 Teslas. Our first destination was the Antique Wireless Museum in Bloomfield, NY - the third largest collection of electronics (and largest collection of radios) in the US after the Henry Ford and Smithsonian! Some notable displays are the Tesla coil that can light up nearby florescent bulbs wirelessly, a working telegraph station, a 250,000 watt Voice of America radio station, and even the world's first cell phone! There are many, many more first-ofs and significant-becauses, but these limited paragraphs just can't do proper justice to them.

    

    


As fascinating and historical as the museum's collection is, it was truly our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides that brought everything to life for us. Their passion for wireless history and technology is contagious.

    


TOCNYS member Morgan W. (on right above) is also a member of the Antique Wireless Association and guide at the museum. He was instrumental in not only making this event possible, but really seeing that everyone who attended was well cared for. This included a Tesla-themed gift bag, ice-cold water, and snacks for all!



Next, we traveled to Lake View Point, just north of Naples where we captured some of the spectacular views of Canandaigua Lake from the south.



After that, we were off to our final destination for the day: Hunt Country Vineyards, with EV chargers, solar power, and geothermal temperature management, quite possibly the greenest winery in the Finger Lakes. Having reserved our spots weeks in advance (a necessity for such a popular location), we were greeted in the parking lot by none other than Suzanne Hunt, representing the 7th generation of the Hunt family to own/run the vineyards.

The group then ordered lunch and split up for wine-tasting or a tour of the facilities.

   

  


By the time lunch was ready, we were well ready for a meal and we had much from the day's activities to discuss! Goodbye until next time!
