    Green Drive Expo rolls into Madison, Wisconsin July 17 & 18 for it's fifth year of fun!

    We've been dispelling myths and sharing information about green vehicles for five years now, and it's people like you that make Green Drive Expo great. We we look forward to seeing you there!

    There have always been CleanMPG folks there, so it's a good time to hang out and compare notes in person. Some have already registered, and it's time for you to register, too. The whole weekend has kind of a family reunion feeling and for many it's an annual tradition.

    So what's happening this year?

    Chelsea Sexton from Who Killed the Electric car will be the featured speaker this year and she'll share her views on where green vehicles are headed.

    There will be special vehicles to drive at this year's event like the
    - Toyota PHEV
    - Ford Escape PHEV
    - Enginer PHEV


    You'll see cars like the EV1, X-prize participant vehicles, Teslas, find out about how to use your ScanGauge and get it updated, and repair hybrid batteries.

    There will be plenty for the public to see and do, but for those of you who sign up as members this year we'll have plenty more!

    Fun things like the MPG Challenge, Owners Showcase, cruise-in night, reserved time to drive the Prius PHEV, awards, door prizes, private technical and user sessions.

    With your $75 registration you get:
    - Green Drive Expo T-Shirt
    - Green Drive Expo Goodie Bag
    - Reserved space to show your green vehicle in the Green Drive Expo "Owners Showcase"
    - Eligibility to win awards in the Green Drive Expo "Owners Showcase"
    - Eligibility for special members-only door prizes
    - You and your children (under age 16) receive free admission to the Dane County Fair
    - Full access to the members' hospitality area
    - Invitation to compete in the Green Drive Expo MPG Challenge on Friday, July 16
    - Green Drive Expo Member-only "How-To" sessions on Sunday morning
    - Invitations to the Green Drive Expo members-only gatherings during the weekend
    - And, of course, you'll also receive the satisfaction of knowing you're helping make the Green Drive Expo event possible!

    Come join us in celebrating five years of hybrid car (and hypermiling) camaraderie!

    It's been fun to see familiar and new faces show up on the GDE registration list.

    Not sure why the thread is so silent since I keep getting calls and email.

    That said, there are a few of you looking for info on where to camp, does the hotel take dogs, etc.

    First, I know of few of last years campers on opting for less mosquitoes and instead staying at the onsite hotel.

    For those of you still camping (you know who you are) let me know, or post on this thread which camp sties you'll be at so others can join you there.

    As far as dogs, yes the hotel allows pets. You can call them directly and discuss it if you have detailed questions. 608-284-1234

    Teslas. They are privately owned vehicles, but the guys are showing up on Friday night so there will be plenty of time to talk with the guys about them and see them up close.

    For now I'm not sharing who all is going to be in the MPG Challenge. Competing will be fun, and there is always an opportunity for anyone to come in and win it. Forget about those other guys and do it for the fun of it!

    Thanks for all the enthusiasm! Keep the questions coming!
