After a few Rivian-less months when I sold my R1T earlier this year, I picked up my R1S in Denver 6 days ago, drove it back to Santa Fe, then to Flagstaff, then Las Vegas, then home. 1,775 miles.

At pickup:

Then on to the tint shop— 20% on the fronts, 30% all around, 70% on the windshield and roof, then PPF on the front (full hood, front quarter panels, mirrors)

R1S beats the pants off of R1T for solo road tripping. Almost every charging break I would take a walk, then climb in the back and lay down and close my eyes for 20 minutes. So cozy! I’ve slept back here 3 nights so far.

Clara found a friend camping in the forest at Overland Expo:

Got her dirty blasting down a desert road at 60mph:

And Supercharging worked great! (other than the fact that it sent a notification about the charge session to my ex-wife. Oh well, she was going to find out about my new truck and give me shit for it sooner or later…)

Congrats on your new rig! What adapter are you using to access the superchargers? The glow of that friendly red R1S seems brighter than Canyon Red.

Hey, wasn't that R1S supposed to be hers? 😂

Congrats on the new car, hope your life situation gets/is better.
