Hang Out Thread

This is the official BS hang out thread :) There are times you just want to talk, or say what is up, or just connect with other X owners on a level other than just the X. We used to do this on Silvers Referral thread, but that got flagged away, and I miss my space to BS with others and have some fun.

So come and enjoy and share your fun times with us all.

If there are several that think this is wasting space, please speak up and we can discuss removing it too. I don't want to create a problem with others that feel it should not be here, but as there are not 20 new posts each day on this X side (at least not yet) I didn't see the harm of having a hang out post.

Again, please if you think this should disappear, I will delete it. I just miss having places to not detract from others posts but yet connect with other owners and have fun :)

Some Kind of first at the Super Charger in Twin Falls ID yesterday. The SC is located at a Visitors Center and the parking lot is full of tour buses and cars with funny license plates. I was there to pickup two grand daughters to shuttle them to grandmas house. The car is on the charger, the model 3 for this trip, while I chat with my daughter. A guy comes over to the row of chargers, looking at several of them and taking a real close look at the connection to the charging port. He then walks over to ask if it is a special gas being uploaded. I agreed that it was a special fuel for Teslas. He then begins to rip on me, Tesla in general and Elon Musk for not making all electrical connections for all cars universal and generally screwing the world for the sake of proprietary profit taking.

There is not much else that can be said in the face of such logic.....

Congrats Jim, as I've said to many new owners once you get it home and you manage to fall asleep you will get out of bed go to the garage look at it then go back to bed, you've been warned .. Enjoy

@jimglas - and to add to Trig's advice... your clocks throughout your entire universe just went to molasses mode. If you work for a living forget getting anything productive done for 9 days. The next 9 days will be much much worse than Christmas for a 5 year old. ENJOY!

jlmuinonen | July 19, 2018

At least it is summer....I don't mind the clock ticking by slowly in the summer vs. during the depths of our snowy winter. Especially this summer. The weather has been amazing so far. We live on a lake so I love dock time in the summer.

jimglas | July 19, 2018

thanks!
Like waiting on a baby thats 2 weeks overdue

Hah! When I got my first MS it snowed 18 inches during delivery. When I finally got it into my garage, I made a pot of coffee and say in it for 3 hrs configuring it... This is what I told my wife :)

Took a while to get it up my driveway because the street was unplowed, but my driveway was cleaned off already. The car had 21's with pilot sport tires on them :)

Triggerplz | July 20, 2018

@Silver wow you had it bad.. I know you meant you "sat" in it

Silver2K | July 21, 2018

Maybe i meant "say"! Don't be fresh!

Triggerplz | July 23, 2018

Man - not much going on around here :) I check out for a week plus and come back to...nothing, absolutely nothing. :)

TabascoGuy | July 26, 2018

Sorry Burdogg, I think the forum is suffering from spam lag...

burdogg | July 26, 2018

hm, no spam recently? Must be tied to me somehow than :)

bob | July 26, 2018

burdogg could you please write us a lullaby thread? We miss them.

Triggerplz | July 26, 2018

Silver2K | July 29, 2018

Triggerplz | July 29, 2018

Tuna fish or Sardines :-)

Tropopause | July 29, 2018

You guys think you have problems. My wife is out of the country for two months. I am bored! The only upside is I get to play with the P100D driving solo. I beat a brand new ZR1 Corvette, also a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Hellcat over the course of the weekend. But I'm lonely!

Triggerplz | July 29, 2018

@Tropopause I'm sending you an all expense paid weekend to the bunny ranch make sure you bring a few "raincoats" what happens in Nevada stays in Nevada Enjoy. :-)

Vawlkus | July 30, 2018

What is this bunny ranch you keep bringing up Trigger?

Triggerplz | July 30, 2018

@Vawlkus The Bunny Ranch is a legal brothel in Nevada 6 miles east of Carson City

Tropopause | July 30, 2018

I heard the bunny ranch offers a great steak dinner at an amazingly low price.

Triggerplz | July 30, 2018

@Trop and they also have an all you eat buffet
@Vawlkus HBO had a series about it called Cathouse

Deenobrown | July 30, 2018

Does anyone know how long my battery will last without charging if I leave my Model x parked outside with about 200 miles of range?

bob | July 30, 2018

@ Deenobrown - Best thing is to power off the vehicle and turn off remote access. Also turn off the 105 degree safety feature (especially if it’ll be parked in direct sunlight). Vampire drain should be minimize with those settings. I’d guess you’d only loose about 5 miles a day if the vehicle is stored in a moderate climate (not summer in Florida / Arizona or winter in Wisconsin)

Triggerplz | July 31, 2018

@Bob Deeno started a thread with that comment

burdogg | July 31, 2018

ok bob - I did it - here is your lullaby post (sorry, didn't start a thread, so this will have to suffice :)
https://forums.tesla.com/forum/forums/looking-buy-model-x-have-some-ques...

You asked, I delivered, finally :) Have a great nap.

burdogg | July 31, 2018

Looks like it is time for a cleanup to the Hang Out thread - don't want this turning into the mens locker room talk :)

Triggerplz | July 31, 2018

What's wrong with a men locker room sometimes a little smelly but other than that it's all good, I'm in my basement which is the Man Cave right now..

Triggerplz | July 31, 2018

Damnn it Bob Its all your fault:-) thank goodness Burdogg only posted the lullaby link

Tropopause | July 31, 2018

Burdogg, I guess that means I can’t ask Trig if there’s a destination charger at the bunny ranch?!?

Triggerplz | July 31, 2018
Tropopause | July 31, 2018

Maybe we should go back to talking about tuna fish and sardines.

Triggerplz | July 31, 2018

We might as well since Burdogg has popped up from the missing and making threats :-)

jjgunn | July 31, 2018

Bunny Ranch and Model XXX..... I'll have Dennis Hof install a couple wall chargers at 100 amps. Wonder if Bishop will approve?

Triggerplz | July 31, 2018

Just have him put some Superchargers out there it best to be on a full charge of energy when entering the bunny ranch

Silver2K | August 1, 2018

Will they use the snake technology at the bunny ranch?

bob | August 1, 2018

my bad.... I'll own it. sorry.

burdogg | August 1, 2018

Everyone needed a nap bob - so nothing wrong with that :)

Triggerplz | August 1, 2018

@Silver using the snake might charge the wrong thing up

jlmuinonen | August 2, 2018

My limited experience Nevada brothels involves only being shown the door when they said that women weren't allowed in....I am a mining engineer. At the time I was working as a student in Elko, NV. There aren't that many female mining engineers. LOL Me and guys just went back to the casino. We were students...the guys couldn't have afforded to be in there anyways ;) But in other more relevant news, our MX arrived at the service center. Unless there are issues with the pre-delivery inspection (happening now) we will pick it up Saturday!

Triggerplz | August 2, 2018

They didn't allow women in, wow that's not fair
