Tracking the Tesla

This was an exciting week to be a Tesla owner.  Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc. and Space X, launched the Falcon Heavy rocket into space.  On board was his own personal cherry red Tesla Roadster, which is now gliding through space complete with manikin spaceman driver!

While space watchers are tracking the Roadster and "Starman" across the solar system, I have been tracking a ship - a ship crossing the Atlantic with our Model S on it.  After getting the status update on the MyTesla account that the car had been made and was on a train from Fremont to Houston, three weeks passed before the next update, that our car had been loaded on a vessel and was on its way to Europe.  As of today, it is most of the way to the Netherlands where it will be rebuilt and re-tested.

I have found lots of others in the Tesla owner (or soon to be owner) community who are tracking their cars across the pond too.  So it's not just me that's super excited!

It's looking like the beginning of March will be the delivery date.
