I got up early (before the sun), had a hotel breakfast, a cup of coffee and headed to the car. The other Tesla was already gone. I got on I-40 going west with a huge sky of dark clouds i front of me, and the sun not quite up behind me.
The speed limit is 75 in Texas, so I flew to Tucumcari and the next Superchargers to find that same silver car from the hotel. Glenn and Kathleen Miller from Carlsbad, California were there ahead of me. We talked about (what else ?) our cars, while Glenn practically polished the front of the car. No road bugs on that car ! It looks like it was just washed after every charge !! He loaned me a spray bottle of water and some paper towels so I could at least clean off my dirty windshield.
Thank you ! It’s a great idea to travel with cleaning products. Glenn, as soon as I arrived in Albuquerque I unpacked the car and within a couple of hours it was washed and almost as clean as yours..
We talked about my first trip to Maine and how I used nothing but KOA Kampgrounds to charge. I gave them a card of the rug I made to commemorate the trip. I knew it would never be like that again.
They were charged before me so off they went to the next stop, Santa Rosa, NM. Not too far away, but it’s nice to have a cushion especially when driving 80 mph up hills in wind.
When I arrived they were there charging. They said that they once made a latch-hook rug with yarn, so we compared notes on rug hooking. They drove off in their clean car to use the Superchargers in Albuquerque. I still haven’t done that yet.. maybe next week sometime.. Nice to meet you Millers. Have a good trip.
I left Santa Rosa with plenty of extra juice in the car, and was home 20 minutes before navigation said I would be..
Dana was on the front steps waiting and Ginger gave me a big lick hello.
This trip was fun again. I do like meeting Tesla people at the chargers and hearing stories.. Everyone seems to love their car. Not everyone has the albums of photos that I do, and I don’t know of anyone who has made a rug, but maybe…
Here is a link to my photos of the car from 2015…
Shana Tova ! Happy New Year !
