Talking Tesla

Mel Herbert, Tom Wolfson and Robert Rosenbloom talk all things Tesla.

Ep 117 - Space Out With Robert And Tom

Notes from Robert:

Hear ye, hear ye,

All Talking Tesla listeners in the LA area, come join me at the Culver City City Council - Boring Co. informational meeting Monday 1/8/18 at 7pm. The Boring Company will present on their proposed plan to dig under the city to begin phase one of an extensive transportation tunnel system from Long Beach to the San Fernando Valley with spurs to downtown LA and more (discussed last week on Ep 116). Come hear from the horse’s mouth! While in Culver City enjoy a great dinner at one of the many eateries. There’s a Supercharger near by too.

If you cant join us, I encourage you to also voice your support either in person or by posting feedback on the city’s website:

I look forward to meeting lots of Elon supporters and advocating for the Boring Co to begin “The Loop” to relieve our stifling traffic and bring more sustainable transport to Los Angeles.

Vandenberg SpaceX Launch Meetup:

I enjoyed watching a Vandenberg launch from 8-miles away from LC-4 at an open lot on the Lompoc Airport property. A large croWd had gathered and cars were lined up on George Miller Drive. An alternate location is a Walmart parking lot near by, a dot marks the spot (34.6663959, -120.4600735):
