We were approached by a member of the Ozark Rotary Club to share our story about our Tesla. Now, we have never turned down an opportunity to share the technology of our Model S and this time was no different.
After we were introduced to a crowd of about 30 or so we recognized several people who have already had a ride and knew all about our Tesla. There were many who had never heard of a Tesla and some interest was piqued. We shared our story from how it all started to offering rides. No takers.
Several people had questions which we happily answered and when it was over we again offered rides. Again, no takers. We felt we had done what we were asked to do and left.
Imagine our surprise when we headed toward our car and it was quickly surrounded by those who wanted an up close look. Referral codes were passed out, more questions were asked, there was a genuine interest.
October is the last month for cruise-ins. It's a great Saturday evening we really enjoy. At first we weren't sure we were welcome since our Tesla isn't rebuilt or modified and it isn't old ... but we were pleasantly surprised.
Last Saturday we attended a new cruise-in, Wiregrass Cars and Coffee and were quickly approached by the organizer who was thrilled to see a Tesla in person ... we even had a chance to take him for a ride!
This is our second summer of cruise-ins and we're still not tired of attending them. People seem to really want to see a Tesla up close and personal and when we offer them a chance to sit it in the ohhhs and ahhhs, make it all worth it and some even get a chance to go for a ride.
I have finally realized what it takes to survive in today's chaotic world. Simplify.
