RE: Tesla camp mode

I could have used that camp mode with my SUV while hunting. Laying flat the back seat makes for a good bed and a good airflow would have made me comfortable in that hot and humid August. And yes, get a good nap while taking a break from driving. Wait, I can take a nap right there while the Cybertruck is running.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

There are numerous articles on this but here is one from this morning: Bloomberg Tesla value "While Musk’s skeptics are dubious that Tesla should be worth more than a carmaker that sold almost 30 times as many vehicles last year, Volkswagen’s own Herbert Diess isn’t so dismissive. He’s been arguably the most vocal CEO among traditional carmakers to praise Tesla and point to its role in a radical shakeup of the more than century-old auto industry." As I said, I am not confident enough in it to invest my savings but on the other hand stock price now is based on what you think it will be worth in the future. Right enough people believe that Tesla has more potential than anyone else to create that price. A number of things could bring it down but a lot of good news has been coming out lately. I should be among the shorts, skeptics and bashers as I've already unloaded my Tesla shares. I think it is frothy and I'm waiting for the irrational exuberance to cool down. But Tesla is a disruptor like the Apple, Google, MSFT... and its stocks will be priced at a stiff premium. And signals all over are positive for Tesla with their China and Europe gigafactory. Europe snap up every car that is shipped to the continent. They adjusted their price point to the more price-sensitive China market and the gigafactory has potential to supply the Tesla-thirsty pan Asia.

RE: Tesla camp mode

That's great. With my generator humming I may even be able to get the battery charged up enough to drive back home when we're done camping. Hauling fuel and a generator along to charge my electric truck seems to somewhat defeat the purpose, though. Do you have a Tesla? And did this actually happen to you and did this?

RE: Alaska Highway Campgrounds

Any ideas from the regulars on how to strategize to visit as many National Parks as possible with a travel trailer? And if you can include the best season or month to do it (read so far that winter is impossible and middle of summer have slushy roads/tundra. Thinking off the top of my head: - Limited to the "standard" road system (not counting fly-in parks that have roads, or "boat-in" parks that have roads), I think there's only two (2) national parks that are road accessible: Denali NP and Wrangell-St. Elias NP. - Certainly do-able with a travel trailer, but it's a rough 60 miles from Chitina to McCarthy (the access point to WSE) to get to WSE NP: then one either hikes or flies to access the scenery - One can sort of drive to Kenai Fjords National Park as it involves going to Seward and then either doing local hikes (i.e. Exit Glacier) or taking a water cruise to see parts of the Park or getting dropped of for day (or days) trips. Chugach State Park and Denali State Park are both road accessible, at least to get to trailheads and related facilities. Thanks a ton! Other suggestion I got was to go by ferry, then hire a good 4x4 to drive to the nearest accessible National Park. And on to the next. What do you think? I appreciate your information.

Tesla camp mode

Good news for us campers. This is a software update for existing Tesla models and a definite must for Cybertruck. The unit will maintain air flow and lights while parked while you are sleeping soundly on the fold down backseats. Tesla Camp Mode

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla is not the second most valuable car company on the planet. The 10 most valuable car companies in the world. Toyota Motor Corp. ( TM): $211 billion. Tesla (TSLA): $106 billion Volkswagen AG (VOW.DE): $80 billion. General Motors (GM): $52 billion. Daimler AG (DAI.DE): $49 billion. Honda Motor Co. ( HMC) $42 billion. BMW (BMW.DE) (BMW.MI): $42 billion. Ford Motor Co. ( F): $36 billion. I finally sold my GM stock yesterday. After holding it for 5 years all that I have to show for it is the dividends. No, I did not buy TESLA. I am not quite as optimistic as some people but I do plan to buy one in about a year. It's the stock market. When it comes to production numbers, Toyota and VW are the largest by far. Hyundai #3 and GM #4. And the value changes every time their stock price swing up or down. Apple, Microsoft, Google and Amazon are in those change in rankings every time.

RE: 4 season camping

I don't know how cold the ski areas your daughter will be going but we brought our Coleman Lite to Yosemite and Lake Tahoe for winter camping and we even have to turn off the heater after it "killed" the draft inside the RV and just continue to snuggle under the comforter through the night.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I don't understand the statement about service in MI. I frequently see a Tesla "service van" on my drive in to work in the morning. If it's not servicing Tesla, then what's it doing? I'm also curious about titling out of state. I can buy any other new vehicle across state line and if I understand correctly, it doesn't get titled in the other state first. The original article I think appeared in mlive... and they are like the CNN of mi news, lot of made up stuff. We find it nuts too! Why won't MI allow it's citizens to buy their cars directly without the add-on profit by the dealers? The government must be in their pockets or the puppets of dealers' lobbyists.

RE: Alaska Highway Campgrounds

We were there last summer. No reservation except for Denali. You can always park in a pullover spot on the roads. Plenty of Provincial parks in Canada. We would try to get into campgrounds around 2-3 each day. Do you have access to visit all the Alaska National Parks through it's roadways pulling an RV/trailer?

RE: Trouble with California

I go between Or and CA all the time and go through the "AG" stops all the time. I have been asked a few times if they can "inspect" the inside of my TC for whatever, I just laugh at them and say no. They have no authority for such...in fact 90% of the time the Leo's don't have the authority, but people are intimidated by the request and submit to it, why I have no idea. Know your rights and demand respect from ANYONE, or be a sheep and get trampled on. I'm sorry if I found this incredulous. I don't think you'll even be asked, and you'll just be waived at the border if you have a Oregon license plate. That's within flying distance of any insect and don't need you car to be transported. These nearby states, up to WA have joint-coordinated pest control protocols. Really? you've ridden with my wife and I driving in and out of CA over the last 10 years? I love the drivel of some people who choose there own "truths" over others facts. You can choose your "alternate" reality if you wish, but quit making statements about things that you don't have first hand knowledge of. No, I would not drive to CA with your wife. And unlike you, I don't need the permission nor bring my wife to be able to go to California. As to mine is bigger than yours contest you want to start. Mine is longer. I've been crossing CA, and passed ALL of it's borders for 17 years as called for by my professional responsibilities. On the direct knowledge, that I admit. Mine is 2nd hand knowledge of a border inspector former neighbor as drinking buddy. And I cannot vouch for the accuracy as we are both half drunk, LOL.:S

RE: Trouble with California

That is exactly what I have been saying - the food/Ag Drone has no power to search and his/her only chance to be allowed to search is through the permission of the traveler... a refusal to be searched means that you nor your goods may not enter. If you turn around and drive away then there is absolutely nothing the drone can or should do... Nice weasel out! Isn't that what everyone suggested to the OP and where you lied and scared them sh!tless with psychiatrically paranoid rant that they are "giving up their rights"? You can now raise your pants backup and pretend nothing happened. Actually you can continue on like this guy did. :B This inspector and the LEO are weak and have a hint that they will be walked over like a doormat by the RV owner. He should have taken lessons from Jimmy Malone, that cop played by Sean Connery in The Untochables. Not quite Jim Malone’s “He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue!” More like, you make my life miserable, I’ll return the favor – and more. I imagine this is how Jim would have handled this. Jim Malone: May I inspect your RV for fruits, insect and parasites, sir? Aboy: No, unless you can show me a warrant and probable cause. Jim Malone: I don’t need a warrant, this is not a search for evidence. This is an administrative inspection. My probable cause is that you passed and came from states with confirmed pests and parasite infestation. Aboy: But I consider my RV my home. Jim Malone: Yes, you can consider it a home or whatever you might want to call it, but the law classify it as vehicle of conveyance and ruled by Supreme Court to be covered by vehicle exemption not requiring search warrant for administrative inspection. But you have an option to turn-around from where you came from if you don’t want an inspection. Aboy: Why? I am an American citizen and have the right to travel whenever I want in any state. Jim Malone: Yes, you have the right to travel, but your vehicles do not have the same rights and, again, I have the duty of administrative inspection over your vehicles before you are allowed to enter the state. Aboy: Well, you don’t have the right of seizure of my personal properties. Jim Malone: It’s not a seizure nor sequestration of your properties, the state has the authority of quarantine right at this station should you both decide to proceed to California without me honoring my duty to inspect the inside of your RV. I can see you have a phone so you can call an Uber should you decide to proceed and cross into the stateline? Aboy: Okay, okay… Jim Malone: Not so fast sir. I am an expert on parasite and noticed that your female companion has crabs infestation in her eyebrow and eye lashes, so I have to quarantine her too for total body disinfection. And you should leave your number and contact address. If your female companion happens to have a Las Vegas, Nevada address and yours is Arizona, we have probable cause to suspect that you are engaging in cross-state human trafficking for prostitution which is prohibited by federal law and that prostitution is illegal in California. This is a joke and no reason for the snowflakes and the paranoid to twist their underwear in a fit of rage.:B

Very safe and very convenient. I got more fraud transactions using plastics than my iPhone banking apps. Of course, we are a family of software engineers and fully e and connected.
Yosemite Sam1 01/21/20 10:09am Technology Corner
RE: Trouble with California

You certainly have the right to refuse a search, but then they also have the right to tell you to turn around and go back the way you came... Did you watch the video I posted before you wrote this? Why, what did you see something that we don't at the end of the video? The inspector and the LEO was telling the a**hole couple to turn-around and go back to Arizona. Do you think they got their way? The LEO even warned them.
Yosemite Sam1 01/21/20 10:05am General RVing Issues
RE: Trouble with California

So, no. Refusal to permit a warrantless search does not equal probable cause. However, the officer way deem it so but when it comes to court any charges stemming from the illegal search should be dismissed by the court or upon appeal. Seriously, you want to play lawyer now and speculate on the court decision when you don't even know the difference between "search warrant" (used to look for evidence of illegal activity or crime) and administrative inspection? Your display and pretend-knowledge of law makes me weep -- well, laugh-out-loud mostly.

RE: Another Tesla problem

Glad to hear Tesla making a stand. ALL automakers need to step it up and stop these opportunistic claims. We really need a like button. ?? Other than the shorts, why can't they just make a better product rather than pulling the one ahed down?

RE: Trouble with California

Actually, upon reflection, someone should close this thread before Sam does himself a critical injury... The risk of injury is only to the brains. And it that regard, you are well safe.:B Finally, your failure to address the question at hand while making a potentially accurate and thus funny comment demonstrates that you concede... What's sad is that that it took a British citizen to explain to you your rights under American law. Don't feel bad, I rarely meet people that know their rights here which is unbelievably sad... I left my country to come to the freedom your Constitution and Bill of Rights afford you only to find that so few of you seem to care to maintain those freedoms. What's happening in Virginia right now is a great example... If you really pay attention it's an argument for an Electoral College in every state. Oops, you edited your last post... Too late... All irrelevant, stay on topic!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Was finishing my post on chips and now they all have problems, when my session timed out...so here is the rest of it Anyone saying that their chip is the best, is ignorant or just boosting to those who do NOT understand the magnitude of it all Plus, am of the opinion that Tusk does NOT stress test, nor runs regression testing of his products before he sends it out to his customers...who become test dummies for Tusk's products Tusk has been luck to date and am amazed at his insurance...they lack any over sight of his products Many of you folks are too young to remember this : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_FDIV_bug Our chips did not have this issue, but other issues and solved just like them...ion beam milling... And these types of issues continue to this day, but the general public does not know of them Yeah, the Elon that deliberately made a Space X explode to ensure that astronauts can have a survivable landing in event of fuel explosion may not have done regression, or/and or stress testing. As we joke at work, when you did not fail the first time, it's luck, when still none after the 2nd, 3rd... it's genius.:B
