Model S Pickup Day – 0745

At LAX waiting to go to the gate from the Admiral’s Club (a civilized way to travel) and thought to update the blog.

So… A few pictures…

Remember, more pictures at my Flickr Set…

As planned, we’re trying to stay electric with the exception of jet fuel…

Our day begins...  The Active E will take us to LAX to pick up the Model S

The Active E is our ride to LAX. My cousin is visiting from out of state and the fee for letting him use the car and stay is to drive us at an ungodly hour to LAX in traffic. Luckily he can use the carpool/HOV lanes to get back home…

A few pictures of the Roadster waiting for its younger sibling…

Los Angeles I-405 traffic… even in the HOV lane.


The view of our Active E being driven back home by my cousin…





Weird to see someone else driving the Active E (aside from the better half, of course…) Perhaps this experience will convince him to go EV? Who knows…
