    I ever-so-willingly caught the Tesla bug after the Wired article on Elon and Tesla came out in 2010, and have been reading TMC ever since, at times avidly. Even though I didn't have funds to invest, I've been invested inwardly and silently. The adventures of Musk Industries and the sometimes-dizzying journey of TSLA are fascinating, as is the challenge of interpreting what is witnessed. In that regard, I gratefully acknowledge the appreciable insights shared by all TMC members, and in particular DaveT, Bonnie, Techmaven, FluxCap, TSLAopt, the one and only Julian - who paints intriguing landscapes exposing previously unimagined (by me) frontiers; and I miss Capital Oppressor.

    I really enjoyed being with hundreds of Model 3 enthusiasts for 4 hours in line outside the Park Meadows Mall on a Rocky Mountain spring morning (freezing temps and snow :rolleyes:) to reserve three Model 3s...one for a sister in NC, another for a nephew near Atlanta. No, I didn't bribe my sales rep...since we were all allowed only 2 reservations at the store, I placed mine online that evening.

    I joined so I wouldn't be an unknown "guest" statistic anymore. Hey, I have a Tesla reserved now! Hello everybody.

    Welcome, steve3! Four hours in freezing snow? You're a better man than I am! I waited less than three hours and I had to wear sunscreen and a hat. ;)

    Thanks for the welcomes. I don't seem to be able to edit a post. Is that a capability that is enabled after a certain number of posts, as I'm not seeing an edit button anywhere?
