    It might be more accepted in Co to park in multiple spots. The outback near us is always packed, parking in multiple spots would certainly upset someone, so I just drop the family off at the door and park in the back 40 away from any and everything :biggrin:.

    Pulled in to the car wash[1] last week and noticed this in my rear-camera:

    We chatted afterward, and his car is even earlier than my May 2013 S... his is late 2012. There are 3 of us around my home area now... I ended up with a white one behind me this morning.


    [1] Cue comments about the dangers of car washes.... hasn't been an issue for me and this ain't the thread...

    I'd never intentionally park like that... begging to get keyed. Between a tight spot and the risk of getting ding'd, or doing that and asking to get vandalized, I'll take my risk with dings.

    Of course, if there's a 3rd option to park further away I'd take that... but that's not always an option depending on the location.

    Got a chance to drive over the new segment of the Bay Bridge last week, following this guy. The bridge sure is pretty. The commuter-lane stickers all over the tesla -- not so much.

    No pic 'cause I was on the phone but about 50 miles to Mitchell, SD from Murdo, on the Westbound side was a Sig Red (we were heading East in our Blue) about 10 minutes ago (3:30pm CDT, May 5th) forgot to train my wife (who is driving this leg) on how to flash the lights to say "hi". Anyone here?

    No pic, again, 'cause we were "orienting" ourselves and heading into Chicago from Aurora...

    The nice red Model S that slowed down to greet us in the fast lane and zoomed off yesterday. We were the blue S from California in the #2 lane going at the speed limit (55) not sure where we were headed next, so being efficient with our consumption.

    I see Model Esses regularly enough around here in the Northern VA & Rockville MD areas that I don't post here much any more...

    However on Tuesday I was at work in Rockville turning from Halpine Rd. in to the small shopping center (where yummy Armands Pizza is located) when I saw a gray car out of the corner of my eye exiting the Congressional Plaza shopping center on the other side of Halpine. It was either a Lotus or a Roadster. I stole enough of an additional glance over my shoulder to recognize the Tesla Shield emblem on the front.

    They are rare enough that I felt it warranted posting[1]. I gave him a thumbs up thru the open pano roof of my Blue Ess... he returned a headlight flash.

    Nice ride my man...


    [1]Thus breaking the premise of the thread title, sorry

    I saw my first MS in the wild today as I was going to pick up my CPO MS. I have seen them parked in the area before but never on the go. I saw it as a good sign as I was getting ready to drive away in my MS.

    This is a first. Spotted one on the other side of a guard rail, WB M-59 west of Ryan. I noticed it when the nose was visible near the gap.

    Ahh, but what you were really reporting was that the roadster owner had spotted a blue model S with the driver's arm hanging out the pano roof so it's all good!

    I work in Manhattan and I'm starting to see loads of MS with New Jersey plates make the commute. Easy run for any MS.

    I see quite a few here in Austin. I saw 4 today. Black P85D, Black 60, Silver P85, and a nice burgundy colored Model S, not sure of the version though.
