Finally got a smart car

Super excited to have purchased a Tesla Model Y. And to be honest I didn’t purchase it because it was electric, I did it for the autopilot.

The electric was one of the main reason I have been hesitant for years. I haven’t been ready to change everything I have known about driving. I really just wanted the safety of the car, and myself, paying attention to the road.

I am not sure why other carmakers don’t understand this, it the software that brings a lot of people to this car, but then we stay for the hardware.

And I have to say, it’s a lot of fun to drive. The acceleration is something I have only felt in high sports cars. So it is a good thing all the safety features are there.

Autopilot is awesome! It takes some getting used to, but once you and the car learn each other it is very helpful. Make sure to keep a hand on the wheel or you will lose it till your next drive.

So far I am really loving this car. The only drawback is not having CarPlay, but I am sure I will get use to it.

We got a puppy!

Merchandise and Support

Somehow having more time on our hands has made it harder to keep up with the blog. Started to put together some shirts to support the blog and local non-profits. The above shirt goes to the Taylor Park Foundation.

What day is it?

So the running day-by-day stay-at-home post got lost in the “what day is it today?” I think it is now 19 days? I hope everyone is doing okay out there. So far everyone is healthy here.

Couple of updates after the break.
