    Inertia Reel Fail

    I had this great idea (kinda like, "hold my beer and watch this") of using a medical gas hose retractor to hold the power cable when plugging in BadA** at home.



    Well, as it went, the power cable was much heavier than the gas hose would be, and it was a no-go. Back to square one. Here, hold my beer.

    You can lose a lot of beers that way.

    Did I mention that my wife now wants an "X" - I am all for that. She wants to wait until the supercharging stations get built in the DFW-HOU-SAT region (that's where our long jaunts will be). But I caught her scanning the Teslamotors.com site and then with a smirk and a smile states "I really like this X thing"

    We may be a two Tesla family sooner than I thought.

    Excellent question. It acutally varies from the point that I zip tie (or wire) it to the garage door support. I suppose I could whittle it down to a few pounds, but then it would dangle just off the floor which is what I am achieving with the inertia reel. I exmined one of the hoses here at work and they are far more lighter than I thought the cord would be ...

    ... I will weight the cord the next time I release it from the door support.

    You know the drill. Reserve immediately, pretending you'll defer when the time comes, and then don't actually defer.

    My wife's already got a Model x res and my mom (after riding around in my dad's Model S) made herself a Model X reservation. This doesn't seem to be all that uncommon... which totally makes sense and is awesome!

    My co-worker asked me yesterday where he could get some of the same Kool-Aid that I'd been drinking. This was after telling him the extra hoops Texas is making us jump through to become owners.
