So some of you know, that I've been following Elon on this car since 2008/09, and I'm a recent TMC junkie, and some of you are/were surprised that I'm *not* a reservation holder. In fact, I have to give a big shout-out to AndyM for having me as his guest at Thursday night's private opening for Reservation holders. I was, I believe, the only person there that night who was not a reservation holder. And while I got razzed by Troy and George B a bit, everyone was absolutely great. I had a blast. Sitting in the car, even parked, is amazing. And another shout-out to Dave for allowing me to be his rider tomorrow. Well yesterday on the 90 minute long drive down to Silverton and back (would have been great to have the S for that), my wife started asking questions about the Model S. I tried to educate her without overwhelming her. Of course I've been talking about this car off-and-on a fair amount over the last 6 months too. But I took that as a queue. So today we came down with our kids... and some how quickly bought a $5,024.00 Tesla hat! Oh, and they gave me P# 10,608! Welcome! And then Troy got my wife and I, a drive an hour later (and his schedule was full) Dave was in the area, so I reciprocated, and gave him a ride with us today... And look what I got for "free" from the Tesla folks. Of course Troy got one each for the kids too. It will be for the mail and house keys, the fob won't need it... Today's drive was nothing short of beyond my wildest expectations. The car should never be judged until you've had the chance to drive it. Everyone is talking about the "Tesla Smile" It's real. Big hats of to everyone at the Washington Square Tesla store - for a simply fantastic experience. George, you are a genuinely gracious man, positively fun to hang out with, and I loved hearing about how you got your job. You have crafted a great experience here. Thanks Maria, I wanted your job, to get closer to the car, but the car is coming, I'll let you have it. Troy, you rock! And thanks to my wife for joining me. Andy, Dennis, and Dave... let's get that PDX club going now!
