    Rivian videos as posted on Rivian Stories or their YouTube channel.

    The more I look at these videos the more impatient I get to get my R1S. The practical approach taken by Rivian is the real value add. I was taught 'Patience is a virtue' ....boy oh boy....it's put to the test now ! It's easier if forced to be patient than a choice. .
