    I opened the door to grab the charge cable and almost got more than I bargained for. This reinforces my appreciation for Tesla's charger design.

    Yeeeesh! I know that sight a little too well. The list of living things that I will gladly kill is very short: wasps, hornets, yellow jackets - that's about it (& mosquitos:mad:)

    Wasp nest
    When you see one, stick some part of your body in there. You'll end up feeling the same way I do...
    (kill them)

    Apparently, that station doesn't get used very often. If it did, wasps wouldn't build a nest there. They don't seem to build a nest overnight.

    I started my pickup on Tuesday for the first time in about two months. Needed it to tow the trailer to a distributor to help my brother pickup (literally) a ton of fireworks. At the gas station, I found a wasp near the filler neck, and shortly after that, noticed a wasp nest built right by the gas cap. Guess I need to sell it or drive it more often...

    Wow, was that at the Philadelphia navy yard? I saw the exact same there on Friday. I'm bringing in some spray on Monday to take care of it.
