    Was surprised this fit...

    Moved a ton of stuff in the S this weekend. Totally blown away by how much I could cram in. Even fit our 85lb dog comfortably around the kids' feet so I could fill the trunk with stuff:

    Mods: I meant to put "Fronk holds two boxes" as the topic but typoed--is there any way for me to fix it or could one of you please?

    Love seeing the Model S being used as 'part of the family', rather than the staged pics. Love love love it.

    Hmm... now there's an idea. Could even use the little cubby space for a water bowl!

    At least until you get roof racks.

    I thought dogs were meant to be put on top of the car.

    If you gave them goggles, they'd enjoy the ride more than being inside.:wink:

    Didn't make him ride in the Fronk or on the roof, but he did get to have the trunk to himself on the way back since we had emptied our other cargo.

    Yep! We named him Kenai, which is apparently Inuit for "bear" and is also the name of a bear in a Disney movie.

    I'm sure I'm showing cultural illiteracy, but lost me on the cheese grater thing!

    Anyway, somehow it suddenly strikes me as really really cool that Telsa has created a car that I drove from San Diego to Big Bear, a change in elevation of 7,200 feet, with four passengers, a dog, and a whole lot of stuff, all on electricity and on a single charge. That just seems too awesome for words!

    ...and I can't explain in words how jealous I am of you! It's great to hear all the cool stuff you are doing with your Sig!

    Thanks for sharing the great pictures! The two boxes are especially helpful -- probably almost everybody has experience with those U-Haul boxes, so that communicates the size really effectively.

    Also pretty neat that the back seat floor is flat so it's totally comfy for the dog, where a conventional car with its drivetrain tunnel wouldn't be.

    Left box, Right edge, on top in the foreground. It is the second row of markings!

    Come on it isn't just TEG that looks at WAY too much detail in pictures posted on this forum. :smile:

    I was just appreciating how many times the boxes had been reused, as evidenced by so many different labels being blacked out and new ones written ... wtg!
