Tesla should put the pickup/acceptance at the airport. Fly in, pick up your truck and don’t need a paid ride for a factory tour.

vehicle pre-programmed for the factory destination. Home programmed too with charging waypoints and sight options along the way.

Do they leave the pen in the truck for you to sign with it?

I fly into AUS a lot.
But I've never seen that view from Sydney.

Fortunately I have a friend who works for the crime lab. I asked him to lighten up the image and enhance it.

Amazing what a good photo filter will do now a days.
Where in that building is my CT?

The great wall of China can't actually be seen from space because it's make of natural stone and conforms to the land.

With modern satellites, my house is visible from space. Heck you can zoom into certain parts of LA and see your big head from space.
I can date the photos on my house by the car parked on the driveway

(edit, corrected typo)

Yes, but from someone sitting in space like in the ISS cupola, all you can see is the tourist facilities. Not the wall itself, it's too narrow, natural colored and shaped. Even in that photo the wall itself is barely a pixel.

I thought the picture illustrated needing to know where to look to see, compared to sticking out akin to some 14th century map next to the kraken. I need to describe my intentions more than I do.

I have come to a conclusion, after reading your spouse plays guitar, I originally thought @Crissa was the wild one of her and her souse. I now believe the spouse is the cool cat and Crissa is the pragmatic one. (Said with affection and a smile)

Yeah, my spouse is all sorts of awesome.

She plays the guitar, but her first love is all kinds of flute from concert to the ney; she rides a Ducati (and has ridden motorcycles since self-teaching thirty years ago); she's worked as a cellular network engineer who had the keys to the city; she's worked on a NASA mission, including having her code aboard a spacecraft and chairing the anomaly review board; she's an artist who's made half of our furniture and most of her coats; and she works as a software engineer building the backbones of virtual reality right now, the one that actually has been in the black for nearly fifteen years.

Oh, and she grew up doing historical re-enacting so she apprenticed as a blacksmith as a child, was a teen knife and tomahawk champ one year, and is a dang good hunter, fisher, and forager. We always have wild mushrooms and spices curing..

She is so many kinds of awesome it's hard to count. But yes, I'm the organized practical one and she's the throw herself at a project she'll figure it out when she gets there ^-^
