I just returned from a magnificent few days in Santa Ynez wine country. Such beautiful countryside and wonderful wine. This was my first time there in a couple of years. Fortunately, the Buellton SC was only 4 miles from my B&B. We drove up from L.A. and grabbed a charge, only to 190. We didn't feel like waiting any longer as we were anxious to get to the B&B. The following day, I hired a designated driver from http://www.winetastingdd.com. Our driver was Eric, who met us at our B&B, and drove us around in our own car. He was thrilled to be driving his first MS, and even asked me to take pictures of him with it. I was afraid that he would need some time to adapt to it, but he didn't. It was also my very first time that I rode in the back seat. I must admit, I did have some range anxiety, but relaxed when I saw that we would return with at least 70 miles even with a heavy foot. Surprisingly, in the few days that I was there, I did not see a single other MS, except on the way home when I saw 2 others at the SC. Anyway, it was really nice hitting all those country roads and wineries in my MS. The down side was that I did little of the driving myself. The plus side was that I could do most of the drinking.
