    As you can see from my post count I lurk more than post but over the past 2+ years I have gotten to know a lot of owners and wannabees. We sort of came together last year with the possible license denial for the Service Center and Sales Office and I frequently see some of the same folks on various threads. I visit the site daily, am an owner, TSLA investor and plan 2 M3 reservations. Are we at a point where we could do something like Florida (on a much smaller scale) and have a sticky site for Tennessee Tesla? I would be happy to coordinate this as I am mostly retired and have done this type thing in the past. Can we guage the interest? Chipper? Todd? David? dhanson865? One celebrity unamed? If you don't want to be identified PM me. BillB

    Thank you CSFTN. I am so sorry you have a charging desert out there. I had an interesting trip to Jackson in early 15 stayed near the Casey Jones attraction and charged overnight. Went back home in a blinding snowstorm and basically followed a big rig. Averaged 285 wh/m at about 65. I'll try to keep track of interest in a thread. If we can get 15 or so I think it might be a start. Billb

    Doug has approved a "Tennessee Tesla" thread sticky here if we can get sufficient interest. What I hope is we can get a number of owners and keep the thread up for all kind of Tennessee issues.

    Hey Bobby served some time in Knoxville at UTK. Just kidding for our Bama friend above. I can understand his interest in a Tennessee thread! Thanks for joining in. Are any of you planning an M3 reservation? I'm thinking about two by 2018 my S will be 5 years old and I seriously want autopilot.

    If you accept 'foreigners', I'm available!! Longtime Tennessee resident retired in Las Vegas. Have tons of friends and family in Memphis who continually pester me with, "when are you coming to visit so we can see your Tesla"! ( They don't give a crap about me!)

    EMDOC I am so jealous of your Sig P85 red. I love my P85 but I feel like tech is passing me by.

    Just a couple of quick thoughts for TN. It looks like the SC build out for Memphis will be I-40 to Little Rock then I-30. This is in line with opening up Dallas. I think Tesla has concentrated on Atlanta and Dallas and the I-95 corridor. Atlanta also needs a route to St Louis. I suspect a SC north of Nashville and in Paducah. Also one west of Nashville in the Jackson area . The Nashville SC at the Service Center is not part of the overall planning IMO it was just property that was available. I dont have much hope for I-65 from the south in the near future. Chatt. and Knox. were the beneficiaries of building out I-75 out of Atlanta. There is every possibility that SCs will be built in TN at several location and no one will know. Lets keep our eyes out.
