    http://www.visitcuster.com/6th-Annual-Sound-of-Silence-Tesla-Rally This is rapidly becoming THE meet-up for any Tesla owner to attend. Long-time road-trippers and new owners all have fun. It's all the easier now that Custer has their own supercharger. The town hospitality is still a...

    Just another four year owner story

    I wanted to do a different kind of write-up for my four year anniversary and decided to focus on service. I’ve been back to the Service Center 15 times since my purchase of an S85. About a quarter of the visits were for Annual Service though there were other items identified and fixed during...

    East Coast Supercharger Celebration Road Trip Idea

    With all the new charger sites opening in the MD/VA/PA/WV vicinity, what about if we string a few of them together for a ribbon-cutting celebration sometime in the next couple weeks? Right now, Breezewood PA and Grasonville MD are open. Martinsburg WV could come online soon and I know there...

    I’ve been doing Tesla and electric car presentations at the elementary and high school I graduated from in northeast PA for the last two years. The schools have graciously asked for a return trip this year and I’m posting this message to solicit volunteers from the owner community. Grades 1-5...

    Mount Washington Questions

    We're planning a New England trip in June and want to visit Mount Washington with the car. I've got an MS85 with 19" tires. We have a dog, though, so here's my questions: Do I need to fully charge in Lincoln if I want to drop the "family" off at the cog railway that they'll take to the top...

    Anyone done Ogallala NE to Lusk WY?

    Just doing some pre-planning for the Sound of Silence rally. I know the Nebraska route is currently in-process. I expect it'll be done before May, though, and I was looking to use it on the way out but am looking at my stop-overs. I was wondering if anyone has made Ogallala to Lusk in one leg...

    Three years in ……..

    December 8th will be our three year anniversary. A most happy anniversary at that! Ownership came to be through a confluence of events. We were happy Jeep owners but our second one was on its last legs after 150K+ miles so we were already new car shopping. We weren’t happy with the 20 mpg...

    It can't be just me (sighting temp tags) :)

    It doesn't matter what mood I'm in, but seeing an MS or MX with temp tags is an automatic pick-me-up. I saw three on my way to work this morning in northern VA and the feeling just kept getting better with each subsequent one I spotted. That's an anomaly for me which is why today stuck out in...

    Things I Didn’t Do

    Three years ago I led a rather ordinary life. In most respects, I probably still do today; but there are differences – changes – that relate to the automobile we have. In relatively short order, we went from realizing we need a new car to deciding on a hybrid/electric to picking the options on...

    Tesla Electric Road Trip - Stonehaus Winery - Crossville TN - 8/19 - 4-6PM

    We decided to make it a real road trip and come down from VA for the event. We're going to make it a multi-day trip and we'll be travelling with our 6 month old Newfoundland puppy (only in behavior because at 60 pounds even we've stopped referring to him as a puppy). We're planning to do the...

    Needed - Nikola Tesla birthday card designed by your child

    My apologies if you see this message in a few places as we’re aiming for saturation. Do you have a child that’s a budding greeting card artist? Are they interested in creating a birthday card to be signed by other owners and enthusiasts and then sent to Tesla? If those answers are “Yes” then...

    Cautionary Tale - Distracted Driving

    This one could have ended much worse. We were recently on our way to visit family. We were driving through Ohio with about 10 miles/10 minutes to go until getting to the Dayton supercharger. We had about 40 miles left on the battery so plenty to spare. The nav was active and we don't have...

    She's Met Her Hero

    She's Met My Hero It's a bit of a back-story but the vanity plate wasn't my original plate. After about a year of driving I realized I wanted to upgrade to something EV-related and went back-and-forth over choices. I was going to do "4Q OPEC" but then an opportunity came up to do a...

    Solowheel Personal Commuter

    I saw someone using this in Reston VA the other day. At first I was confused at what I was looking at. Then I was intrigued. Home - SOLOWHEEL 10 mph and 10 mile range make it useful. Much of the battery detail seems similar to what would be discussed with an electric car. It didn't occur to...

    High School STEM Talk on Model S

    I volunteered to talk about the MS at the high school where I graduated. Besides a sense of pride in being an owner, the high school is located in the electron desert of northeast Pennsylvania and I figured it could be a neat experience for the kids. The high school has a large foreign student...

    Old Meets New

    We saw this painting by E. Martin Hennings at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis and it really spoke to us. First, the gas dispensers look a little like a side-view of a supercharger. It's interesting that the horses have the widest color diversity compared to the automobiles. Not that...
