    Tesla Delivery May 11, 2013


    Tesla was on my radar ever since the introduction of the Roadster in 2008. Honestly, it was its performance, acceleration, and speed that that caught my eye, rather than it being electric and good for the environment. It was, however, only irrationally attainable to consider seriously with my teacher income. When I heard the Model S was on the design track, my hopes for a Tesla raised like the ...

    Late in June of 2013, my neighborhood experienced a significant power outage from a vicious storm, lasting almost exactly two days for me, and longer for my neighbors. In total, over half a million customers were without power. As much of my neighborhood was buzzing with the sound of chainsaws and diesel generators, I quietly thought about my Tesla Model S, tucked neatly in its garage, away from falling trees and power lines. It had a full ...

    On my trip to Blaine, WA for the start of BC2BC, I am pausing for a moment (while the Roadster is charging, and an excellent Burgerville lunch is settling) to reflect on how I find myself here. I first started driving an electric car in March of this year, so I’m still pretty new at this. If I turned around right now and drove home, then I would match the longest previous electric trip that I’ve made. Instead, I am now about 100 miles into what ...

    On June 11th, 2013, my wife and I set out on an incredible adventure into the wild heart of British Columbia. Our purpose? Both to explore the vast "outback" of our adopted home and its many natual treasures, and also to test the limits of EV touring in a Model S in a way we believe had not yet been attempted. Our route included the famed Cariboo-Chilcotin Circle Route, with time in WA State added to visit relatives: up Vancouver Island, by ferry ...

  6. Assault on Mt Evans - the Trek Westward



    6/5/2013 For my first long distance trip in Lithie, I decided to attend the Assault on Mt Evans. The trip would be roughly 1700 miles round trip. So, I figured I'd give myself 3 days for the trip out. So after a couple of days of calling around I had all my charge stops booked and I just had to wait for the date.

    Fast forward to yesterday, which already seems like forever ago. Decided to take ...

  7. West Texas Road Trip : Amarillo to Austin - 510 miles (and back) with no EVSE

    My motives
    Once you drive the Tesla, you really want to do all of your driving in your Tesla. Other cars are just not nearly as fun.

    Thus when I needed from Amarillo to Austin, Texas to pick up my daughters at college, I immediately wanted to drive the Tesla. The problem is that this is a 510 mile drive in a car with a 265 mile range. If there were superchargers along the way, there
