Hi. Hope things the right forum. I just bought new Rivian 21 inch wheels and so I’m selling my 4 Rivian 20 inch All Terrain Tires with 18,500 miles on them. Still lots of tread, some cupping which makes it a tad loud. Selling all 4 for $1000. Need to pick up in OC. Connect if interested

Thanks
Pete

Random question - I’m in Palm Springs snowbirding for the next 4 or 5 weeks. Unfortunately we drove the wife’s Volvo down from Denver instead of my R1T. But, would love to check out the even event if possible, especially since it’s so close. Any chance somebody is planning on attending and has an open passenger seat? Would love to ride along on one of the organized trail runs.

Special Request of the RCA Family

Here at Rivian Clubs of America we are working hard to create a wonderful community of people who, with their families, go out into the world, have fun, experience nature and make the world a better place. Over the past year there has been a tremendous growth around the country of Member Rivian Clubs with owners having a great time getting together and experiencing that sense of community.
It is in the sense of that community that I would like to reach out to all of our wonderful participants and ask for help. Help for a community member and her daughter. Many of us know Kendra as RivianMom and she has been instrumental not only in creating a thriving Kansas City RC, but has been integral in creating graphics for events for clubs around the country.


Recently Kendra and I have found another connection that we share. We are both Kidney Donors. In 2000 I donated a kidney to my father, and while he has since passed a few years ago, we had extra time together. It is a tough but rewarding experience and one that I would not trade.
Kendra, Olina’s mom is an organ donor herself. Kendra donated a kidney to her oldest daughter in 2016.

Which brings us to my ask of this awesome community:


Within the last month Kendra’s youngest daughter Olina has been diagnosed with the final stages of End Stage Renal Disease. Kendra, and her husband John live in Kansas City with their four children.
Olina was put on the list for a transplant on January 10th and the family is taking a very active approach looking for a live donor as they await a deceased donor from the list. Finding a live donor is critical to avoid dialysis. While the rest of the immediate family cannot donate, you can help.


We at the RCA wanted to lend a hand and reach out to everyone to not only spread the word, but seek a live donor from our ranks. We are partnering with the University of Kansas Health System who have provided some information that we will link to here. If after watching the video and reading about the Living Kidney Donation system at the University of Kansas Health System, you want to talk to the RN that will be helping to match Olina with a donor, you can reach out to Samantha Brennen, RN, BSN directly for further information about how to save a life.
We are asking that you take part in the Kidney Chain Program developed at the University of Kansas to make sure that the donation has the best chance of success. When I donated a kidney to my father I was a good match, 4 out of 6 proteins that they use to determine the likelihood of the recipients body accepting or rejecting the transplant. Kendra was a 6 out of 6 with her daughter the first time around.
Often when you are next up on the list you are receiving a donated kidney from someone who has just passed away and donated their organs, however with that system there is no time to wait for the right match. This is where being part of a larger group of people wanting to donate really helps out. With the Kidney Chain Program, even if you are not a match for Olina, you may be a match for another recipient who may have a person willing to donate, but they too are not a match, but because each recipient has a person who is willing to donate and save a life, the potential for a match increases the longer the chain becomes. With this decision, you will not only be helping to save Olina’s life, but you are potentially helping to save several other people simultaneously. Who knows, there might even be another RCA community member who needs a kidney right now…

I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for taking time out of your busy day to consider this act of love and community. If you do decide to become a donor you will join the ranks of the Awesome One Kidney Club!

Hi everyone, I'm a Launch Edition R1T owner (delivered May 2022) and have thoroughly enjoyed it for almost 19k miles. As a lifelong "car guy" who has owned a wide variety of vehicles it really is one of the best I've had. Looking forward to meeting others here.
