PHEW...NO...it wasn't mine!!! Such a sad thing to see happen--To the R1T AND the flatbed Rivian delivery truck. As if Rivian isn't struggling enough to get these to customers!! Now they are down a pickup and delivery truck. SO SAD!!! :( :crying:

We picked ours up Wednesday. Just got back from our first adventure north of Odessa into the Scablands at Twin Lakes!! SO GREAT!!! Got lots of drone footage that I hope to get uploaded to YT over my crappy slow Hugesnet satellite internet connection. 😝

sounds like you could use a different Elon Musk product. ;)
Yep! Have one ordered already!! 😄 But, our area out here in the middle of nowhere is not yet covered by the satellites. Says it should be available by mid-2022. Fingers crossed!!! :fingerscrossed:

Portland lot has been empty the last 3 weeks. Does anyone know if they are still doing deliveries in Oregon? I figure it’s either supply chain / none have been manufactured for Oregon preorder holders, or they’ve had to pause deliveries here for some reason. I know they had to stop test drives awhile back, but it was never clear as to the reason why other than “it’s a state thing”. I’m curious if whatever impacted their ability to do drives is impacting deliveries as well. (Heavy speculation)

I don't think the lot has been empty that entire time as they were delivering trucks to Bend this week out of Portland (I posted a tweet from the local delivery specialist showing off a Black on Black R1T). So, they are still moving trucks through there - but I don't think it's like it was at the end of March when there were probably a dozen trucks on the lot.

And, the test drive thing (something to do with the DMV) only affected test drives, not deliveries.

Maybe I didn't post the tweet so here it is:

That's comforting, thanks! I've only ever seen 2-3 trucks there and had incorrectly assumed they must be there for service rather than for delivery.

the one time I went by (Mid march) there were 8 or 9 in the lot, 2 or 3 inside and a hauler had pulled up with 2 or 3 more - but that was right during all that end of quarter madness.

Probably both. My truck was in there for service this last week. Unfortunetaly looks like it is going back. They dropped it off and I pulled it into the garage. Then I noticed a ‘Display software error’ and also some fresh scratches. Also to top it off the new wristband key they gave me doesn’t work…. Not a great experience but anyway that is all off topic.

A RB got delivered to Bend last Thursday as well. Surprised my little town has so many Rivian's already. At least six that I'm aware of. 👍🏻

It shouldn't be a surprise. There's a lot of money in Bend.

Hadn't heard of any deliveries in Portland for awhile as I await mine. But 2 trucks sitting on delivery truck in Newberg this morning. Launch green with 20 AT and a El Cap with 20 brights.

Today I saw my second R1T on Bainbridge Island. My kids and I all started yelling with excitement as it drove by. Super exciting they are making it out here.
