Sorry y'all, post edited...I got out over my skis a bit.

There's a very important hearing this coming Tuesday in Austin. It would be a big help if the Rivian community could come out to show support at the hearing. Time should be finalized tomorrow & I'll post more details then.

Rivian is bringing an R1T to Austin next week, and they'd love to see some preorder holders come out.

It will be here Monday & Tuesday as a show & tell for legislators (similar to what we saw in GA), and @RivianPolicyGuy joined here to be able to gauge interest & communicate with anyone interested in coming out.

I'd love to be there as well & meet you guys in person, but I'll be traveling. Y'all have fun & take lots of pics/videos for me!
I'll fly in from Portland if they require a reservation-holder to take legislators for a test ride. I'm thinking at least 30 miles per test will be needed to show off the Rivian's abilities. As I've said before, no need to thank me, it's just who I am, and the right thing to do! 😇

I'm in San Antonio and would love to drive up and see it.

If you don't task a friend or family member with sneaking some photos of the interior, I'll fly to TX so we can discuss in person :)

It better be the truck with the Texas sticker or no state sticker. It wouldn't go over well with Texas officials if they brought one with another state sticker on it! Hopefully I can make it over there. I assume somewhere near the capitol building? Just let us know the times each day that it will be available.

I live in Atlanta and work just minutes from the capital. I really wish Rivian had taken a proactive approach when they were in Atlanta. I would have come out in a heart beat to advocate. I found out about their presence days later through this forum!

Anyway, it would have made very little difference given the very strong presence dealerships have in the state legislature.

Skyote, I forgot to add that you might want to forward a list of any passengers you’d like to have dropped off at some random point during their test ride, whenever that event takes place. 😉

I'm not planning to be in TX (hill country) until late June early July. Someone take a load of pictures!
