    Greetings from the upstate of South Carolina. My MS 60 is scheduled to arrive late September or early October. THe MS will be a big change from my 9 1/2 year old Prius ;)

    I have never actually seen a Tesla on the road anywhere. I may go stake out the supercharger in Greenville, SC, which is about 20 miles from where I live. It was empty the day I visited before.

    I am a retired software developer and blogger. I want to save the planet.

    Greetings from Columbia. My 75D is in transit with arrival in 2-3 weeks. There is no supercharger near me. I am working to get my garage charger installed.

    I have been stalking the two Teslas I have seen in my area.

    Welcome to the forum. Revel in being unique in your town. If you want to see bunches of Teslas come to Houston. I'm also waiting for my car to be built and then delivered.

    Welcome to the Forum! We have had our car for over two years now. Santee is a regular stop for us on our biannual trips North. When Tesla fills in Superchargers in West Virginia we'll probably drive up through Columbia and on to Pittsburgh like we used to in our ICE.

    I have family in WV and have been scoping out the options. The supercharger in Strasburg, VA, seems a strategic location for crossing West Virginia, or Bethesda, MD if on I-95. Personally try to avoid I-95 as it seems to be more a parking lot than a highway.

    That takes me back. When I got my Prius in 2004, I would always park next to another Prius if I found one in a parking lot to make two in a row. I don't think that's going to happen with Tesla for a while.
