Last Tuesday I was able to attend the Tesla Shareholders Meeting for the first time. It was an incredible experience and I feel blessed I got to meet so many great folks in real life.
Hitting a pole with our Tesla Model S ended up costing around $5,800. The two quotes that we got were very different: from our insurance company ($2,600) and from a Tesla certified body shop ($6,200).
Last Saturday our family spent a really nice morning attending the Earth Day EV Ride & Drive in Palo Alto. I heard about it through the Tesla Owners Silicon Valley group and decided to volunteer some of my time to share with people the wonders of having an electric vehicle.

To say goodbye to 2018, which has been our first year of life, we've put together a recap with some of our favorite articles, pictures, and videos of this year.

Thank you for sharing so much amazing content with the community.
