    I know, right? My nap time gets screwed up regularly when I hunt SuperChargers. Especially in Arizona.

    You are basically correct. Cell towers know both universal time and location from GPS, and therefore can compute (or ask a central server) what time zone they are located in. But phones these days can be communicating with up to five or six towers at the same time, and who knows what algorithm...

    Agreed. And if they have room to put the day of week on the screen, why not the time zone? Driving across country, crossing time zone lines is traumatic for me. I don't know when I've crossed the line, I don't know which time zone the car is displaying, or the motel I'm talking to is in, or the...

    Supercharger - Superior, CO

    Here's more detailed pics of the Superior Service Center after the Marshall fire. This is the west and south wall. Much of the wall covering has been burned, the steel structure remains. The exit door seems undamaged. That's tough glass. Some (but not all) windows broken. A line of...

    Tesla Gigafactory

    I think his point is that there are not enough batteries available to be recycled yet to keep up with expanding demand, whereas there are enough steel cars being recycled that very little "new steel" is required, rather like new lead-acid batteries are mostly made of recycled lead.

    Well, at least I stopped in to see @ThisIsTrue on the way back from Telluride. I know you live somewhere close to him, maybe I'll find out some day. Randy's drive isn't 370 feet, but yes, he has a little ice. Give it some time, there are a couple more SC permits in Denver - perhaps building out...

    I've been feeling shame for not re-clearing my home state after two new SCs opened up 1 and 3(!) months ago. So I examined the weather reports, ignored the predictions of snow everywhere for the next five days, and set out. It turned out that the predictions were very much off - almost no active...

    I'm feeling a bonding moment, having hit those two about a week ago. No fog, but some snow on the ground.

    I found a few SCs that I didn't record during my recent trip. The charging record at tesla.com turns out to be incredibly useful.

    Yeah - I took those SCs right from under your nose! I was in Cranbury for an evening, visited a company in Middlesex, and got 5 SCs within 20 miles of you. Experienced the joy of spending 45 minutes driving around the block to get into the Holland Tunnel. Good times. Every time I see someone...

    Model S Photo Gallery

    These desaturated colors seem to be the "new cool". I personally like them, but a friend says they look like primer.

    Tesla's page shows no Service Centers in South Carolina; the closest is probably in Charlotte, just across the border in North Carolina. My daughter and her husband both work at a BMW dealership in Florence SC. I've been encouraging them to offer to run a SvC there for Tesla.

    Finished an East Coast trip Friday; visited SC for my daughter's birthday, then visited three cousins, drove to the tip of Long Island, ferry to New London, then back to Denver via I-80. I think my total was 102 in two weeks (including one first visit).
