Off to a Great Start

You know it's early when you get to the @united club and they're not open yet. #travel #vacation #itsallgood

I don’t feel like I’ve been up for 2 hours, but I have. It’s just before 4:30am, and arriving at the United Club before it opened was definitely a first; that’s when you know it’s early.

I was going to drive myself to the airport, but figured since I had enough points on one of my travel cards, I got myself free black car service to and from the airport, and boy I was that a good choice. I was picked up promptly at 3:30am this morning by a black Tesla Model S… and it was one one of– no, it was the best ride to the airport I’ve had in a long time. I couldn’t think of a better way to kickstart this trip. I tried to think of a funny electricity-themed title for this post, but nothing came to mind. Why don’t you post a comment with some suggestions?

After having test-driven a Tesla a few months back, it’s really opened my mind to the idea of the possibility of daily driving an electric car. The ride experience was very smooth, and I loved the feel of the acceleration! The driver was quick to get up to the speed limit, which I always enjoy, of course. Maybe when I turn 40 a Tesla model S can be my midlife crisis car. I know I’ll feel better about owning one when charging stations are more accessible.

Either way, although it’s not obvious in the picture I’m excited and can’t wait for my upcoming cruise. More to come here on the blog, but also be sure to follow me over on Periscope for some fun in-the-moment live streams from the beautiful Oasis of the Seas.
