Sparky brought his one-day old Model 3 to yesterday's EV Gathering,
and we got lots of pictures, including the standard 18" wheels with the
aerodynamic wheel covers on, and with the covers off. The M3 is
easier for me to get into, and out of, when the seat is all the way down.
In the excitement, I forgot to try the rear seats. With two stalks and
3-way roller buttons on the smaller steering wheel, to compliment
the nice landscape display screen, sufficiently satisfactory control
should be possible, even though some functions currently require
interaction with the screen. The rear-view mirror, when parked,
seems to be just a mirror, but it could have other functions.
Enjoyed by all, Thanks Tom.

Robert picked up his Midnight Metallic Blue Model 3 Saturday afternoon,
so we are likely to see two Model 3's at the next Gathering at the
Hometown Buffet in Santa Ana on Jan 20, 2018.

Put me down for Sunday Mar 4 potluck. Most probably just me, but I will extend invitation to my Riverside friend, who possibly could arrange to attend with me. I think she would enjoy the group.

I have been following the progress of Elon's Next Big Thing, the Falcon 9 Heavy, 3X Falcon 9s strapped together. This week this "BFR" has been raised to vertical several times at the Cape, but the static test firing of all 27 engines was scrubbed yesterday, Friday, reportedly because of a faulty hold-down clamp. Largest rocket since Saturn 5 Moon rocket. Stay tuned. You can check progress at several sites:

Looks like we have the beginning of a good time. :)
I'll post more in few weeks. Hoping to see some old faces, and some new ones. All EVers welcome. An award will go to the EV with the highest odo ... don't know yet what that award will be, but it will be of great 'value'. 8-)
