My brother has a Tesla. I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this but I have wanted an X for as long as they have been out. I watched Elon Musk’sĀ unveiling of the X years ago. The $120,000 price tag, however, has kept that want as just a wish because who has that kind of money to spend?

So Matt has an S and he drove it down from Virginia to Moncks Corner, SC yesterday to enjoy our total solar eclipse family reunion and this thing is pretty awesome except when it needs a charge that takes hours so you shop at the outlet stores and buy amazing kitchen gadgets and then leave to find out that the charging wasn’t really happening because the stations were generic and required a special account and I really feel like swiping a Visa and plugging in a car shouldn’t require a stamp of approval from President Trump.

We never did figure it out but it still has plenty of charge so there is some time to get this done. And he said I could drive it so hopefully that will happen sometime before he leaves after the eclipse tomorrow.

There are better pictures but, of course, they are on Kait’s camera so I’ll get them later but until then, here is one of it being all blurry and stuff.

Also, we got tons of Family pictures that Kait is holding hostage too so that post will have to wait a little longer I guess.
