So it's our 1 year anniversary for the Model 3 reveal. That sure went fast didn't it? With all of the negativity that has overtaken this board since the tweetstorm I thought it a good time to bring some positive vibes. Let's all take some time to reminisce about our experience last year. For me I was just hitting the road around this time to drive to the Cleveland store. Through this community I had agreed to pick up 3 "strangers" along the way, 2 from the Buffalo area and 1 from Erie PA. It was a 3 hour journey but our excitement made the time fly. When we pulled up to the Cleveland store we couldn't believe how many people were already lined up. The line already wrapped around the front of the building and covered about a third of the side. We were able to get one of the last parking spots. It was chilly and there was a light drizzle but everyone was smiling and sharing where they were from and their thoughts about Tesla. We were grateful when some employees popped out of the door to hand out coffee and doughnuts. Even with the gloomy weather there was an excitement with the anticipation of officially reserving our spot in line. The line moved pretty quickly and efficiently. I thought the staff did a great job moving things along and keeping everyone happy. After putting my money down I got my first opportunity to sit in a Model S. I wished I could take a test drive but that obviously wasn't possible. At least I got a cookie as a consolation. We lingered around for a while afterwards and I just looked around to take in all the smiling people. Then we went to a nearby restaurant to grab something to eat before the drive back and I just remember everyone constantly checking their phones to see if they got their confirmation email. All in all I had a great time and there was still the anticipation of the actual reveal that night.
