    Keep your eyes out the MN fleet is growing. That being said outside of our meetups I have only seen 1 ever on the road here but I think I am on the opposite side of the cities from where most are.

    I've now seen four other than mine:

    * One in Apple Valley at a soccer tournament (April)
    * One parked in my parking garage (license plate Tesla1) before I got mine (May)
    * One other person picking up their Tesla at the same time as me at the service center in Eden Prairie (June)
    * One passing in the other direction this weekend in Wayzata (June)

    Until 2 weeks ago I never saw one, then suddenly saw 3: Near Lake Calhoun, near Mall of America, Excelsior Blvd near Hwy 100.

    I'll have to keep my eyes open. I spend a lot of time in St. Louis Park between Lake Calhoun and 169 on Minnetonka or Excelsior.

    Pretty good article, very fun quotes.
    Off by a fair amount on the number in MN.
    We are at least 80 now I expect:)

    Todd told me it's 75 within the Service Center's geography, which includes the Dakotas, Western Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska.

    Lived there for seven years (near Lake of the Isles); great to hear the fleet is growing there. Still lots of friends up there (that I am trying to get to buy Teslas).
