August normally means driving a rented car somewhere, not at home. This time it was the 2nd leg of the USA coast to coast trip, an auto gear Nissan Altima, paying for fuel, smelling the fumes, the slow reaction to the gas pedal, the breaking with no regeneration, the noise, the vibrations, the oquard user interface, the clock manual setting when traversing yet another timezone, all part of that hopufelly soon to be dead package: the old dinassoric way of driving an ICE petrol car.
Did I miss our Tesla Model S 85D? Tremendously. I wish we could have brought it with us to the USA trip! But we are back, now here on the road with Tesla!
