Recently I had to take ‘Scarlett’ in for a check up. Primarily, I just wanted to have an unfortunate scratch taken care of. It happened to be a crisp, fall Friday and I had a few errands to run. I needed a loaner car for the day. There just happened to be a couple. One of them caught my eye though… A midnight blue Tesla roadster. I had heard that the service centers were now incorporating them as loaner vehicles. It seemed too good to to be true. Continue reading

OMSI After Dark Event

20130926-084414.jpg

Last night Tesla Trips was invited to be a vendor at the monthly “OMSI After Dark Series.” An excellent event that was quite busy last night. There were over 20 local breweries and many other local vendors as well. The next one is on October 30th and costumes are recommended for the Halloween theme. Tickets are only $25, which includes a tasting glass and tokens for tasters. It’s one of my personal favorite brewing events. Plus now that the Oregon Zoo no longer does their annual brew fest, I can safely say OMSI’s is my favorite in Portland.

Story Musgrave is a retired NASA astronaut and while he may be referring to the his adventures in space. I’m referring to how long it has taken to get here and how much farther we have to go. We are taking a moment to celebrate today’s news. Tesla Trips was finally recognized by the City of Portland as an Executive Sedan company. We first applied to the City of Portland in April and have been waiting very patiently. We are all very thankful for their decision and we welcome the opportunity to serve this great city!

Hood and Columbia River Gorge EV Itinerary from Travel Oregon. Continue reading
