    Fixed up all my 2014 trip dates (took a while!!!!), and added Abbotsford (Mt. Lehman Rd) BC and Red Deer County AB from a trip in June this year.

    I asked the driver what he felt was the most advantage this semi gave him (he's driven semi's for years), and his response was interesting: unbelievable difference when maneuvering from zero or very slow speed -- the electric motors have so much torque they can easily move a heavy load at slow...

    Whew. Just updated the docs sheet with both my trip to California in June and all the "x"'s from my various other trips starting in 2014. The trip from Victoria BC to California in June was very interesting. My wife and I were in my 2013 85S, and my son and fiancé were in his 2018 RWD 3. The...

    Getting too used to Autopilot

    You guys! It’s not a bug, it’s a feature, called the “On-Ramp Wiggle”!! Embrace the dance! But seriously, my 2013 S is old, slow, blind, and one-legged (no dual motor) so I don’t have the AP choice, but I’ve driven a friend’s 3 and my son’s 3 on long trips and while I would never go to sleep or...

    Spud's Elektrik Trek

    Bumping this forward, since Postach.io has somehow stopped displaying anything but the title page of this trip and I can't figure out what's wrong. I've ported it over to Polarsteps and anyone who is interested can see the blog here: Polarsteps

    Thx, I thought I already did that. I'm also comfortable with not further educating myself about the vagaries of Google Docs. Only for everyone else's protection given the risk I'll screw something up (a man's got to know his limitations - Dirty Harry).

    I tried editing the google docs SV3 sheet but it was protected, and either I don't have access or don't know Google Docs enough. So, please update my column with having visited the Surrey BC charger in Jan 2019. Thank you! This little game is sure looking professional! You leaders, watch out...

    You may have missed the follow up video where Munro admitted he had to “eat crow” on many of his earlier comments. And one of them, I believe, was the foolhardy design of the doors (“far too expensive” or something like that), which of course we now know WHY they were built like that —...

    My wife is starting to get concerned that *MY* reaction to the Emissions Test Mode was like a 9-yr old's. She hopes my enthusiasm will fade after a while. But I, personally, doubt it.

    You could do the frontier charging in Hyder somewhere, even on a 15A outlet, while sobering up after being Hyderized.

    Supercharger - Victoria, BC

    Plugshare can be edited. Saanich may be technically correct, but Santa’s mailroom (when it’s not on strike) uses Victoria for the entire “Greater Victoria” area. My vote is same as what Tesla calls it.

    Supercharger - Victoria, BC

    And, today they've finished the chargers and are hard at work on the rest of the infrastructure. I didn't take a pic of the guys working (just to the right of the picture that doesn't show outdoors) because they were looking at me strangely enough taking the other pictures.

    I’ll just clear up the mystery about Pandora and Broad in OP: that’s Victoria’s city hall, so generic references to the city name alway map there.

    I thank you for that detailed correction. It gives me hope. Once I recover from Trudeau buying us all a pipeline. All I've been seeing on the news the last two months is the Alberta premier bemoaning the oil industry and demanding federal support, followed by a clip of similar statement(s) by...

    I agree. It's very difficult, especially for those past middle age, but it's reality. And the time to start is not when it's completely obvious one is in a dying industry. (Some here would argue it's already completely obvious...) Another example: I'm pissed at the Canadian federal government...

    Are you referring to "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."? Note the descending order.

    I have to completely disagree about presenting the complete argument. There have been way too many posts with twisted "incomplete" arguments, making the hidden agenda obvious.

    "Nothing"? No, I wouldn't say that. However I think there's a lot of other action happening that likely has more to do with it. I'm not happy about a few of Elon's tweets, but I'm just not willing to judge him either. I haven't (and never will) walked in his shoes. I haven't driven the change...

    I'm a bunch of pages behind, so undoubtedly this has been replied to already. I am sorry you lost money on the situation. However, you said you thought it was "duly considered and announced". The tweet was considering. My understanding of tenses is, that means happening now, not done and...

    This reminds me of the old adage -- "The trouble with management is they're often wrong but never in doubt" Note: this post is mostly for humour and does not point towards the management of any particular company. There is often a grain of truth in it, though, and that grain certainly applies...

    The woman at the podium during the SEC press announcement said (from memory) "return any ill-gotten gains". You're absolutely right... it's BS.
  31. Ugliest1

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Yeah. Or we're going to sic the SEC on you. Since the SEC obviously has nothing better to do.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    I can't remember whether you've explicitly stated untruths, but I know for sure you twist and slither some facts, and ignore others that "put the lie to" whatever your current narrative is. Honest debate and exchange of how one sees facts is one thing; twisting them starts down the slippery...

    I can’t find a good thread for this so please point me there. I think I’ve read posts in this thread that mention seeing semi’s full of Tesla’s being transported somewhere.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Not much chance of that. I'll be lucky if I get to the first century mark. We've postponed our Victoria - Arizona - Texas - Florida - Kentucky etc road trip until... well, let's say until there's different leadership in the country.

    Thank you for doing all this research. I'll copy it to the comments and credit you. I already called out the author for his bias. He freely has admitted in the past he hates EVs, and don't get him started on government incentives. I'll create a PDF for you and PM it.

    Yeah, except they haven’t, specifically writer Steph Willms and Matt Posky. They both write significantly negatively slanted articles about Tesla.

    I just want to give the Nav a shout-out for excellence in re-routing. On our way to Reno down I5 from the border and it re-routed us around the Seattle and Portland traffic. But then south of Salem there must have been an accident because I noticed a sudden re-routing off I5. Red for miles...

    I totally agree. He should have just said no IMO from a selfish stockholder perspective. (That “O” stands for Opinion) But, I don’t walk in his shoes and I’m not willing to judge him for whatever. His emotional bank account with me is still quite high because of all the good. The hit was minor...

    Have to disagree here. Whenever CNBC has a Tesla bull on the commentators still shape their questions and comments in extremely negative ways, and, they have way more BS-artists and trolls on who blatantly lie through their teeth.

    I’ll call BS on this even though you’re new here, Carebear. Morton’s reasons were simple: FUDsters too prolific with their lies and attention to *making things up*, and he didn’t like the high pressure work. I get it, I wouldn’t want to work for Tesla either, but that’s because I’m retired... if...

    I think that’s laying out a Jump to Conclusions mat. Makes more sense that he chose to leave for exactly two reasons, the ones that he stated himself.

    That’s too bad you will personally be bankrupt next week. Not surprising though given your track record. And for that record, you’re totally full of *sugar* on the bankruptcy/irregularities comments. I’ve asked for you to be banned.
  49. Ugliest1

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    When I use the button I clarify why — EXCEPT for those who have proven they are trolling. Those of the troll ilk wouldn’t know what to do with an explanation anyway since they’d just ignore it or pivot to a new topic.
