I finally took my Tesla on its first autopilot road trip over 200 miles day before yesterday. Went from Lincoln CA to Danville CA in the rain, visited my grandpa to give him a Google Home Mini for his late 89th bday present (he loves it!! Tony Bennett and Sinatra playing non-stop haha) then I did my first ever supercharging session in San Ramon before heading home. It was initially charging at 310 mph but slowed down as other cars plugged in. I was still thrilled with the speed though because my home charger is 33 mph. Hit 680 at about 3:30pm, had some traffic and rain, but things got flowing once I hit the 80. The car rerouted me through Woodland to 99 and back road to Lincoln in order to avoid 5pm Sacramento traffic. I was so thrilled with how the car performed and the fact that I had ZERO STRESS and ZERO ROAD RAGE during 5 hours of driving makes this car worth every penny!!! I ran formation with a few Teslas in each direction, so if any of you saw a red Model 3 with all black windows, might have been me! The trip definitely helped me get to know the car better and I'm not nervous about longer distances anymore. I'm also stoked that I still have 935 free supercharger miles left. Has me thinking about where I want to take the Tesla next!! Love this amazing machine!!
