    Supercharger - Madison, VA

    I always thought the hardest part was getting the utilities to the site and power activated, but it looks like all that is missing is the Tesla hardware. The big green transformer is definitely electrified as I could hear it humming. Pics below from today.

    Experience with in-house Body repair - Owings Mills

    I had a great experience. Their work and communication was excellent. Annie Wolf handled the communication during the repair process and Kris Estrella did a stellar job navigating the challenges with the insurance company that paid for the damages. I live 2 hours away and was having trouble...

    Disappearing Destination Chargers? - Southwest Virginia

    Hey fellow Hokie! I think the ones you mentioned are the only Tesla Destination Chargers that I've seen in the NRV area. Most of the others in Blacksburg are J1772 public chargers. I travel to Blacksburg pretty frequently and I either stay at the Courtyard with the Tesla Destination Chargers...

    It looks like we're going to have a great showing tomorrow! Hopefully the rain holds off. The Sheetz manager is thrilled that we'll be gathering but advised that noon on Saturday can get pretty busy with the lunch crowd. She asked that we not block traffic and suggested the areas in green below...

    Supercharger - Gaithersburg, MD

    Pulled in with 21mi left so we critically needed a charge to get home. All stalls occupied and a line forming. And there's this guy here ICEing 1B. Granted it's one of those 30 minute general parking spots, so I give them the benefit of the doubt, get a bit creative, parallel park, and plug in...

    Need to Charge--Williamsburg, VA... Anyone around?

    Check PlugShare. I have my home charger listed on there and have helped a couple people out over the years. I did a quick search and looks like there are quite a few options in the Williamsburg area.

    Looking for rear facing seat (jump seats) crash test safety data

    Ah, bummer. Have you tinted the rear window?

    Looking for rear facing seat (jump seats) crash test safety data

    Not sure if it's a later model thing, but I have a 2015 and as long as your manually set it to fresh air intake, the jump seats stay cool. There's a label on our jumpseats indicating to do this too.

    @Half Dollar Bill - I like that idea and I'm also hearing several people who will be at the Mid-Atlantic event don't want to miss out the Springfield ribbon cutting. With that, and allowing more time for people to plan to attend, let's go with Sunday, 7/1 at 11am and lunch at 11:30am at Yard...

    Superchargers: Fairfax / Alexandria

    Funny because I've been doing the same thing. Fairfax Corner is right around the corner (no pun intended) from my house so I stop by every now and then. I think the fenced in area is just for the construction work on that new building by the garage, but I could be wrong. I've seen on other...

    VA safety inspection fun

    I used Rosslyn Automotive in Merrifield. The owner was familiar with Teslas so he came out to help the inspection guy. I don't think they checked much and passed me.

    Supercharger - National Harbor, MD

    Oh I missed your post earlier today @Thinkje! Just stopped by. Barriers still in place. I asked security if they would let me in to charge.... It was wishful thinking. :) The exposed wires on Saturday turns out to be for a vacuum. Pics here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/n2wlpSaDLR9aErLa2

    Supercharger - National Harbor, MD

    Stopped by around 2:30 and took some photos and video. The lights are on, on the stalls themselves so they're electrified. But barrier still up. I wonder if they're waiting for the ribbon cutting before they open it up. https://photos.app.goo.gl/FVZaEIa3LInjXLrv1 @jcadman22 - I'm free tomorrow...
