First Accident - Part 2: Sourcing Parts

For years we’ve heard about the long road to recovery many Tesla owners face for even the slightest damage.  Waiting for the insurance companies to work their magic after "crash weekend" was going to be the first step to that process and I was eager to hear my phone ringing.

First Accident - Part 1: Dashcam's Big Day

The moment every dashcam waits for, perched atop a windshield with varying degrees of elegance, is to save its owner from an insurance claim against them.  Alas, my Thinkware camera's moment finally arrived when my car was ambushed from behind by a minivan.

DASHCAM REVIEW: Thinkware F770 vs Blackvue DR650GW

They’re in every store, every restaurant, most workplaces, monitoring traffic, stashed on buses and trains, tucked up under your neighbor’s gutters, watching you work out at the gym and lurking in some places you wouldn’t even expect and their sole purpose is to record what you’re doing.  Estimates vary, but the average American is captured on camera about 100 times a day.  With all those lenses aimed your direction, you’d be wrong to assume you could count on any of them to protect your interests or property, even assuming you could obtain the recording without a subpoena.  Given the value of our cars, the political climate and the litigious nature of modern society, many Tesla owners have shrugged their shoulders and joined in the camera arms race.  Do it right and you’ll have at least one camera you can count on to be your witness-- but only if you choose wisely.

Here's the Pudding: "Franklin Park" Supercharger?

I had a number of people question my "confirmed" proclamation on a previous post regarding the Wexford Supercharger.  They said the white cabinets could be "anything," despite my assurances they weren't some kind of new vending machine installation for your MTOs.  Well I've been doing this a long time...

As one of our sharp-eyed local Tesla owners put it, "That looks familiar."  ANOTHER Supercharger location found and under construction in western Pennsylvania and-- you guessed it-- it's at ANOTHER Sheetz.  Elon, you gonna come get your MTO n'at??

Hermitage / West Middlesex Supercharger CONFIRMED!

Hot on the heels of the DuBois / Falls Creek Supercharger getting turned on and our own unofficial charge at an unopened Supercharger near Corning, NY... we now have yet ANOTHER new Supercharger that was spotted by my very own father near Hermitage, PA.  Wanna guess who is hosting the latest Tesla Supercharger?

DuBois / Falls Creek Supercharger CONFIRMED!

Not content to wait for others to claim the glory, Darren and Joseph mounted up and headed for the hinterlands of Pennsylvania to see if the rumors of a DuBois Supercharger were true.  Here's what they found...

RIP to the PA Supercharger Desert?

The well-publicized cooperative agreement between Sheetz and Tesla is finally bearing some long-awaited fruit!  We already knew about Breezewood, but now there's another Sheetz Supercharger rumored to be just days away from completion:  Falls Creek.

Model 3 Catching a Midnight Snack

One of our local Facebook group members stopped at a Supercharger near St. Louis and caught a Model 3 munching electrons in the middle of the night.

Never Again

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh is getting dragged into a debate that we didn't ask for, but for which the city is uniquely equipped. For me, it's about pollution, not politics.
