    In a new video promoting this event they confirm that Rivian will be on site with R1T and R1S. (Unknown if this is more than display opportunity). A $50 ticket gets you in the whole weekend. There will be all manner of EVs and related vendors there. If you've never seen Fully Charged' YouTube Channel videos, Robert and Jonny are a hoot. Very informative and well-presented. Sounds like a good education opportunity not only for Rivian preowners but anyone interested in EVs and alternative energy. Here's a link to the website and ticket info. https://fullycharged.show/events/fully-charged-live-north-america/

    Video is too long...where do they talk about Rivian?

    Regardless, I have my tickets to this event, and I'm a local. If anyone else is going to the event & wants to eat some of the world's best BBQ or drink some good local beer, let's sync up.

    About the 3:10 mark they mention an upcoming interview with RJ; the confirmation of Rivian appearing is about at the 12:54 mark.

    Do we have a headcount for all those attending the Fully Charged event? I ran a search but didn't see anything...

    I have not, though there's less of a chance now since l finally got to see the EVs at the Normal event. Plus it will depend upon the timing of an annual family ski trip usually around that time of the year.

    At the Normal event I had asked a couple of Rivian reps about the Fully Charged event and that they are promoting test drives. Responses were not the Rivian EVs. I was also told that Rivian won't be ready to start crash testing until around next April. So I presume test drives won't be available until the crash testing is completed. (I suspect due to liability issues?)

    A short getaway to Texas in the middle of winter could be tempting. So I'm a definite maybe. :):)
