    Tesla Electric Road Trip

    At first I thought the big Volvo SUV in the background of the above pic was ICEing us, but he/she was plugged in to the J1772. We are not alone. It was fun sitting in a Model X and telling a potential buyer that almost all of the things I worried about owning a Tesla did not come true.

    Tesla Electric Road Trip

    Yes, we just returned from one in Stevenson, WA USA (Skamania Lodge). We met a really nice bunch of people that we hope to see again. The Tesla employees were great. There were over 15 Teslas in attendance. The highlight for me was moving my car so Bonnie could charge her Roadster. Go to a...

    2012 Signature Model S, Factory Custom Brown - SOLD

    Brown is not my favorite car color, but I have seen this one in my home town and it is really special. Lot's of wow factor there. Should be an easy sale Rob.

    Just Got Rear Ended- Need Some Advice

    What is it about 85D's. Mine got rear ended while I was sitting in it. Best advice I got was to go to a Tesla Certified Body Shop. :mad:

    TACC Tuning?

    I'm not sure if it was an update or something my SC did on a recent visit, but my #6 follow distance is now the old #7. The new #7 gives more distance to the followed vehicle than ever before and therefore more time to react at higher speeds. I also get a smoother acceleration on resume. I...

    Man Down!

    There seems to be a theme here, the lady who banged into me (pic above) was especially apologetic because it was a new Tesla. While I don't think I was a complete jerk, I certainly was not as much of a "Tesla Gentleman" as Pete. I will do better next time. :smile:

    Man Down!

    "Make sure you stick with a Tesla certified shop, and check things such as parking sensors, etc." Great advice. My body shop guy just returned from Fremont training. Made me feel better knowing the person I was talking to had seen what is behind the bumper of my car before and knew what to...

    Man Down!

    What a hassle! Here is my 3 month old 85D. Parked in Egypt to avoid dings and she backed right into me. No one hurt, we are lucky.

    Poll: How Actively Are You Promoting Your Referral Code?

    Yesterday a van started following me around town. I'm new Tesla owner so it took me a while to figure out that he just wanted to talk Tesla. He pulled up behind me when I stopped and I had him sit behind the wheel if he promised not to drive off. :smile: He had a real interest in the car so...

    Great for visitors to Walla Walla 55 miles East. And with Pendleton 37 miles South we are not in the Tesla SC boondocks anymore. :smile:

    85D owners would you have bought a 90 non-D and saved the $2000

    No. I would rather have the AWD for Northwest USA winter driving.

    Model S 85D, 3,000 Miles, 90% charge = 242-244 Rated Miles

    Supercharger — Baker City, OR

    Here are the cones Rocky_H mentioned. It is a crowded busy parking lot. No need to move the cones, just back in between them. A great way to keep the Supercharger from being ICEd

    Washington Owners - How long did it take you to get your license plates?

    Late April Seattle delivery took almost a month. The title came just yesterday.

    Tesla moments

    Today was the perfect day to try out the turn signal pass maneuver. I came up behind a cement truck going 55, cruise set to 60. The 85D cruise light turned blue, ahh I'm tracking him, my speed matches his...time to pass, but wait! There is an old white Ford pickup in the left lane right...

    Lots of issues with new delivered S

    I read these trouble threads so that I will be aware of something that could be going wrong. Thanks to those that post them, but so far my 85D 78,8-- with 2,500 miles has been trouble free. I hope saying this does not bring the Service Devils down on me. :wink:

    I'm a new owner, so it was really enjoyable to talk to all the Tesla owners at the Grand Opening. A great time. Now I'm ready for Baker City and Boise Supercharger openings.

    I got a call from Tesla yesterday changing the time to 1:00 PM to coincide with a speaker's schedule. Don't recall GM or Ford ever calling me up. Cool. :biggrin:
