    Last year, my wife and I drove her sensible Ford Focus to Lombard, IL for the Thanksgiving holiday, from our home in Plymouth, MN. No matter what, I knew we were returning there in our Model S in 2013. I was pleased to see the Rockford, IL supercharger come online in September, and anxious about something in Wisconsin for the middle, but I knew Livewire could make it. After my summer camping trip to Wildcat Mountain State Park, I had acquainted myself with ...

  3. A spooky Halloween in Fargo

    Shortly after my family and I completed our trip to Wildcat Mountain State Park, which was just past the rated range of our 60kWh Model S, I decided that seeing my close friend in Fargo was a realistic 227 mile drive from Plymouth, MN. For those of you who live a safe distance from Fargo, it is a cold and windy place, which makes range a lot harder to judge. After a few false starts for planning recreational activities that did not involve driving, ...

    Well, It's been 3 Days since I've taken delivery. I can honestly say that, as excruciating as the wait was, it simply magnified my Tesla experience. The entire process from order to delivery has been excellent. Sure, there were a few bumps in the road that I would probably attest to TM being a fairly new company, but overall, it's been great. My favorite part of the purchase process was (aside from the car) the fact that I didn't have to deal with a typical ...
  5. Elon's Model S Fire Blog: Dazzling Display of Awesome

    04 October 2013

    As a longtime car nut, engineer, and Tesla fanatic, I've come to have the highest admiration for that Elon dude. He does it again here--decimating Tesla fire hysteria with machine gun bursts of awesome, yet via a sonorous symphony of scientific literacy-driven evidence and logic.

  6. Water, water everywhere....and a power update.

    Continuing the story of our journey to go off-grid that started over here.

    Solar Hot Water

    Our local utility provider is pretty adamant that water heating contributes to approximately 28% of household power usage; that seems a little high to me but I'm guessing that they don't take into account households with electric vehicles. In any case, we got the option to apply for, and were granted, a $1,000 rebate for an additional solar ...

    This summer, I took two road trips with my Model S. Both were a lot of fun and full of learning experiences.

    Trip 1: North and East
    My wife is an adoring and faithful fan of some Canadian Celtic band called Great Big Sea. We went to their concert in Saint Paul in March, and then, apparently, her big moment as a fan came. My wife works in theater. It's been her life-long dream to meet this band. So, when news of their show in Bayfield, ...
