Proposal for Inaugural Idaho Rivian Club meetup!

Fellow Idaho Rivian owners & enthusiasts, I'm trying to gauge interest in hosting our first meetup on the Saturday after Thanksgiving - November 25th. I realize that's short notice, but I would love to start connecting with some of you folks in-person! Here's what I'm thinking for anyone in or near the Treasure Valley:

1:00pm, Saturday, 11/25/2023: Meet at the base of Initial Point and drive up to the top for a group photo. From there, we could head down the butte and explore all the trails through the dessert on the way South to Swan Falls Dam. Down by the water, we could stop again for a few photos. We could chat about future club gatherings, outings, trips, and other ideas folks may have.

Additionally... If someone has driven these trails before, let me know if you think there are better things to explore out here!

I realize the proposal above is probably only workable for folks near the Treasure Valley, Mountain Home, and Twin Falls. Perhaps someone in the panhandle and someone in the Eastern part of the state wants to coordinate a similar concurrent gathering in your area?

WHO'S IN??!!

Treasure Valley Collision Repair & PDR

I just got off a call with the Boise Service Center. They mentioned they don't have a Rivian certified collision repair center quite yet here in Idaho. However, they have been sending their loaner fleet and referring clients to McDowells Specialty Repairs for Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) and other types of collision repairs with good success. Just a helpful FYI in case any of you have a need for repairs on your Rivians! https://mcdowellsrepair.com/

Our R1S is due do be delivered before the end of September. What would y'all think about doing a meetup somewhere we could get a really cool group photo with a vista in the background? Initial Point perhaps? Since the survey of the Idaho territory started at this "initial point," it might be a little symbolic for the Idaho Rivian Club to have our "initial" meeting there. The trail up to the top should be simple enough for all R1 - regardless of wheel/tire combo. We could chat about paint-friendly off-road trails, future meetups, and EV events. Bring picnic lunch, your families, a baseball & mitt, and we could all hang out for a bit and get to know each other & see all our trucks! The views are stunning! Does anyone have a drone to take a photo?

Thoughts? Alternative proposed locations?

Here's Initial Point: https://goo.gl/maps/A6BVvtUJUetPJM3Y6

For folks outside the Treasure Valley, maybe a coordinated meetup date? One in the panhandle? One in Eastern Idaho?

People who don't have their R1 yet would be welcome to attend, but we would try to keep the vehicles in the photo R1 specific. (but all attendees would be welcome in the photo!)

Just had our First Mile Drive at the Boise service center! It was AWESOME! And there are a TON of R1T & R1S getting ready to be delivered!! I would estimate at least 20+ R1 vehicles. Obligatory kids in the frunk & gear tunnel pics (it was sunny!):

Would any of the members here be interested in helping to lead the Idaho Chapter of the official Rivian Clubs of America (RCA)? We need to have a Pres. & VP listed on our initial charter application - which is due by August 15, 2023.

One of the goals of the group would be to plan events like "Cars & Coffee" meetups, off-roading outings, camping trips, and other events focused on gathering Idaho Rivian owners together. See examples of the other RCA chapter events here.

As a perk for volunteering to help lead, you will receive 1-year free membership on the yet-to-be-determined dues structure. Here are the newly established RCA bylaws and code of conduct. DM me if interested.

Exciting times at the Boise Service Center!

I was running errands on Friday before lunchtime and swung by the Boise Service Center to see what I could spy. There were several R1S & R1Ts charging out back, and this beauty sitting in a parking space out front! (My first time to see an R1S up close!) Congrats to whomever gets to pick up this lovely limestone example this week!

Inside the warehouse, there were probably another 6-10 R1 vehicles as well as an EDV in Rivian Mobile service livery. Very cool!

I went into the office and had a great chat with Griffin. I told him I was a preorder holder with an Aug/Sept '23 delivery window but that I still had heard NOTHING from Rivian in terms of First Mile Drive, Guide assignment, or R1 Shop access. He grabbed the iPad and set me up with a first drive appointment for this coming Thursday! SWEET!

It's actually happening, people!

First Riv - reserved December 2020 and received delivery May 2022. The most unbelievable vehicle i have ever owned. I got side tracked by the resale value and ended up selling in April of '23 and instantly regretted it. Ended up finding a used LE available in KY and had them ship it out to me sight unseen.
I could not be happier.
Hope you all enjoy the truck and I can't wait to see an R1s in person. I'd love wifey to get one.

Svc Ctr is live now on Five Mile north of Emerald.
I booked my demo drive for this Sat 15 Jul 23.
Check your dashboard log in and see a new 4th logo under your truck preorder logo on the L sidebar.

We don't have our R1T yet (reserved last September) and cannot wait! How long have you had yours and how long was your wait from reservation to delivery? How has it performed thus far? Rick & Carla Finis (Boise)

Our R1S delivery window is coming up soon! (Aug/Sept 2023). That seems to correspond with the opening of the new Boise Rivian Service Center. Can't wait!!
We live in Cascade and took delivery of our R1T in March at the Boise Service Center. No they weren't open. They brought it up from SLC and we agreed to meet at the service center. I even borrowed a screw driver from the electrician that was working in the building to take the plates off of my trade in.

Really enjoy driving the mountain roads. Hwy 55 is real fun. Drove to Warm Lake today for lunch, it just handles great. Hope to meet other owners when they come to Valley county.

That's awesome!! When sleuthing (stalking) around the service center in/around April, I talked to one of the ESI (construction) superintendents there and he mentioned the Rivian reps had made some customer deliveries in the parking lot even though it wasn't opened yet. He wasn't very pleased about it either. LOL!! I'm guessing you were one of the lucky ones that had the privilege of ticking off the ESI superintendent. HA!
