    DocDog welcome!

    The Red you saw may have been Watt-Ups. He has a red one and that sounds like his area of town or it could be the other one that was on the same trailer as his, delivered to a guy in Clayton.

    Right now the count of known (by me) S's in St. Louis area is:
    The Silver one in Chesterfield owned by a mystery guy.
    Watt-ups's Red one
    FlasherZ's Red one, though it is most often found in Ill.
    The red one owned by the guy in Clayton.

    I am P2359 but a 60kwh. So I'm hoping for delivery in Jan. and making it the 5th (or so) S in St. Louis.

    I'm not sure why I haven't come across this thread sooner, but I'm also a fellow resident of the St Louis area*, and proud reservation holder (#10,074).

    *I live in Belleville, IL, but I work in the Soulard area, and grew up in South City.

    I'd be interested in meeting up with other Tesla fans, either pre- or post-delivery.

    John

    Looking for KC area tesla fans for my parents who have model s and a model x order. Seems they could use some ev support. Is the St. Louis club the only one in the area?

    To the Model S-TL group. Received my invitation to config today. I was surprised to receive it so soon with a P>10k. Time to make the decision on the color. . .

    Have you made the trip from Nixa to St Louis in your Model S? I should have my car in 4-6 weeks and I am trying to make St Louis to the Lake work.

    Not yet, Rick. I'm waiting for the right combination of elements...lack of urgency, an overnight trip, decent weather, etc. which lake & what area?

    Hello People confirming this week and wondering if you could share your road trips starting or ending in this area i.e Southern Illinois and St Louis. That will expand our understanding of how far we can strech our roadtrips and what kind of infrastructure is in place, it was interesting to learn about Normal IL which has good EV charging options as an initiative from the city.

    I've been to both Springfield, IL (210 mi round-trip, no charge) and Indianapolis, IN (charge overnight) from near Carlyle Lake...

    finalized a 85KWh non performance yesterday, hoping to pick it up from STL service center which would be operational by my delivery period march/april and drive home 130miles, wish people around STL started a group or a network, its easy to be lost and unnoticed in this huge forum. I think people like me from rural areas would benifit sharing experiences. Really appreciate and respect the effort people put in building this great resource and community. Hope the meet on saturday goes well, wish I wasn't working.

    There is a St. Louis group, although we hold it in a separate forum.

    http://www.meetup.com/Saint-Louis-Tesla-Enthusiasts/

    There's an event in St. Louis today - I know 130 miles is kinda long. I live near Carlyle Lake, good to see more people from South of I-70!

    EDIT: I should read, you know of the group because you know of the meet-up! Leaving it here for others though!

    Thanks FlasherZ, you are a big help on the forum, I think EV-tripping to STL on a good day should be fun from Carbondale, my challenge would be planning Chicago with 2 kids on board, seriously hoping for Supercharger on I-57 by summer holidays.

    My understanding is March.

    The St. Louis Tesla Enthusiasts Group is actually getting a tour on March 16th.

    I expect with Elon's recent admission that Superchargers should be closer together, we'll probably see one in/around Effingham at some point, but Bloomington/Normal will probably be first.
