Hello all:
I am anxiously awaiting my Model 3 - and waited 20 hours at the Tyco Rd store and overnight to be the first reserve at that location. Now I just have to nurse my 16 year old, 2001 Volvo S60 for a few more months and hopefully not sink anymore money in her.
Cheers

I was in line at that store too, about 15th or so. It was a chilly and breezy wait!
..... and it was a little dangerous too .... the line was along that narrow service road along the side of the building, which was further narrowed by the trailer parked waiting to deliver a few Model S's - and it seemed like there must have been a drug distribution ring at the other end of the dead end road - as there should have been virtually no traffic, but it was in fact very busy between 2 am and 5 am. lol

Haha, yea I had forgotten about that. It was nice when the sun came out and we someone brought their Roadster for us to look at. Met a lot of great people that day and really started to get excited about being a part of the EV community.

Did you attend the You You Xue meet in Glen Allen?
I didn’t, but now I wish I did! I’d really like to sit in one before I buy it, but know I’ll love the car either way. I see it as an easy transition from my current A3.

Ok, I thought it may have been you in the Volvo with a vanity plate clearly intended for use on an EV that parked next to me.

Thanks for the intro. I made my reservation that day too, but didn't decide to do it until after work. So I got in right before the store's closing time.

Would anyone be interested in staying in touch as a DC- or NoVa-area mini group? I think it would be great to exchange good/free charging locations, or other local tips. In addition, it would be great to know when the first of us gets the invitation to configure.

If you’re in the Ashburn area, there’s a new owner showing off his car at the Harris Teeter in Brambleton. He was planning to be there through noon.

I’ve also heard that there’s a similar meet up at the Fair Oaks mall at 1pm. That’s the only detail I have.
