Been having an itch to get a Tesla recently. I'm really tempted to get a Model 3. Just need to do more research in insurance costs.

Anyone else thinking of getting one?

Mr. Money Bag there! wink

Would be nice but in our rural area...would be difficult. I have seen a charging station about 20 miles away...I always wondered if a smaller workplace would let you charge a car up at work without a fee.

You do know that you can charge at home?

Yes...range is the concern in farm country...220 miles is pretty far...my commute is about 60 miles but would nice to charge up while sitting at work...I do not even pass a gas station on my way home/work...but I do pass some Amish wagons (really).

I think they are sharp looking.

The base model 3 is $35,000. That's the one I'm looking at.

60 miles one way? Even if that was the case, that's only 120 miles. You would have 100 miles to spare.

I forgot where you lived..someplace like Michigan? Cold place I remember, but didn't think there was Amish up there.

Still running your old iMacs? Been awhile since I saw you post your set ups

SW Ohio..close to the border...lots of New Order Amish...all of it is fascinating to learn about.

Still using lots of old iMacs both at home in the outbuildings and at work for automated videos.

Old Mac Pro (2008) is running as a server now and currently using an upgraded CMP as my main unit.

SW Ohio? You are closer to me than I thought! Huh...always thought that you were way up north.

Interesting that you use them for automated videos...surprised the camera/software for video hasn't been updated past what the iMacs run.

I have a 2008 iMac and wondering what to use it for. Can't upgrade the OS and I really don't use a desktop anymore.

As far as Tesla goes, I found out about insurance (only goes up $96 every 6 months). Now to see how much CarMax would give for our Honda or my truck to see if there's a next step.

This was the one I was looking at



But insurance for them is crazy. $600 every 6 months on top of what I pay...yeah, doesn't look like I'll be getting one right away.

I saw a black one today at the grocery store....no doubt they are sharp. I am liking the Jeep Gladiator but wish they made a two-door version.

Moved back to OH in 2004....
