Minty fresh!

sentabo | August 16, 2018

My groin feels better already.

grins.va | August 16, 2018

Yay! Looks good again. Wish Mike83 would follow your lead.

1BadNerd | August 16, 2018

Smells like a new Model 3 in here.

And, I hope that isn’t a groin smell.

Nooo, I skipped a day and this is what happens? Damn comprehensive final that stands between me and a Masters degree, it's infringing on my forum time.

@PhillyGal
Baby, masters, cracking the Century Club.....
You don't like to sleep or you've made a Dorian Gray-like arrangement?

PhillyGal | August 17, 2018

@HalfDollarBill - The century club took should have happened last year! This final should have happened 5 months ago. Better late than never I guess.

Much like having 3 jobs (and a boyfriend, and a sorority) in college, I sleep plenty but what the heck is a TV?

Pleasanton_Ca | August 18, 2018

Bump, Saturday 5:45 AM ...
:-)

TeslaTap.com | August 18, 2018

@Pleasanton - That's just too early :)

NKYTA | August 18, 2018

Especially on a Saturday!!

Pleasanton_Ca | August 19, 2018

Yep, somebody scheduled a meeting early yesterday and that was the only time that worked...
:-)

NKYTA | August 19, 2018

And yet you seem to be up again this morning. ;-)

barrykmd | August 19, 2018

NKYTA's up early, too.

Bighorn | August 19, 2018

He’s got to get up before NYKTA

Took a last minute overnight trip to Gainesville and back. Saw twice as many Model 3's as X/S combined.

Trinity has arrived bump!
Super excited.
NKYTA has a sister.

Still Grinning ;-)

sentabo | August 20, 2018

Hey, that was quicker than you thought! Congrats!

Pleasanton_Ca | August 20, 2018

Always been an early raiser (waking up too). Getting up early for fishing and hunting, also the older I get the less sleep I get.....

Pleasanton_Ca | August 20, 2018

hmmm, (Early Riser)…
☺☺

NKYTA | August 20, 2018

@sentabo, pretty much came out of left field...bit of a scramble to get the CU loan last week!

@Pleasanton, early raisers tend to win pots, nothing wrong with that. ;-)

Welcome the family, Trinity!

Shesmyne2 | August 21, 2018

Thanks PG! She's quite a ride.
Hope the munchkin is being nice for you.

Still Grinning ;-)

akikiki | August 21, 2018

SamO. We've seen and logged the tag numbers and colors of more than 1,000 Tesla's on Oahu as of today. ...and still no Supercharger.

Run4Waffles | August 22, 2018

Congratulations on bringing Trinity home!!!

AWESOME!!!! :-)

TeslaTap.com | August 22, 2018

@akikiki - Only 1,000 in Oahu? Here in California, Tesla is likely delivering 1,000-2,000 a week to owners. I estimate Californians are taking 40-50% of Tesla's US output. Almost seems like Tesla vehicles are taking over the roads here!

PhillyGal | August 22, 2018

@Shesmyne - Munchkin is still a tiny human that requires a lot of effort, but less so than when a mushy newborn. (What's this, you're awoke in your crib but are playing happily with your feet? Win!) So yeah, he's being nice these days.

akikiki | August 22, 2018

TT, yes, we've heard that about CA. Need I remind you, that Oahu is less than 45 miles long and 30 miles wide.

lilbean | August 22, 2018

Does O’ahu need a supercharger? It’s so relaxing on the islands, maybe the cars wants to charge more slowly. :)

akikiki | August 22, 2018

Uh-huh, but yeah.

TeslaTap.com | August 22, 2018

@akikiki - I'm sure it would be nice to get some that free Supercharger power! The electric rates in Maui are very high 24/7 and I assume Oahu is no different.

SamO | August 22, 2018

Just bring your car on the boat @akikiki. Low cost of $870. Less than 8 tanks of gas.

That being said, ownership in Hawaii deserves some Supercharging. Especially the city dwellers without parking/charging. Is this a critical mass issue? What is the demand of ownership? Have you spoken to anyone on the Supercharging Team?

Tesla's current map shows Superchargers in:

Honolulu and Kailua on Oahu in 2018 and

Kula, Maui in 2018

Hope springs eternal.

SamO, Yes, we met with the SC Team. They have been on the ground here working. Gave them some ideas. Also talked with visiting Tesla VIP for our area. Biggest obstacle is property/space. Yes, the city dewellers are having the hardest times. Even some of the newest high rises are going up with reduced parking and no EV infrastructure.

SC Map said the same thing for Honolulu and Kailua in 2017. It came and went.

:)

SamO | August 24, 2018

@akikiki,

On my visit to the Big Island last month, it just so happened that there were 4 EV chargers + 1 Tesla Wall Connector in the condo with less than 70 units. None were occupied, but I managed to spot 3 model X and 1 S on the road.

Having Superchargers made ownership a quantum leap easier, especially before I had garage charging. I think the planned Superchargers will only boost sales of S/3/X so my hope, as always, is for more and bigger Superchargers for everyone.

#DriveFree

akikiki | August 24, 2018

SamO, I agree with you. Superchargers for everyone.

I am lucky. I have always charged at home and free (mula solar panels). But those of us that can, are concerned about our Tesla friends that can not. We have been lobbying Tesla for superchargers since a few months after they were first announced.

@akikiki, hope you weathered the rains!

My hometown of Madison WI got slaughtered with just 10”, almost a years worth in one day!
