Holy cow! What an incredible experience this must've been.

Founder of Techno Buffalo and Tesla aficionado Jon Rettinger attended the Tesla Model Y event in Hawthorne, CA just like many. However, he had a prior experience that was so incredible that most people can't possibly lay claim to it. Tesla flew him to Finland to check out the Model 3, and his story is truly moving and otherworldly. He shared:

"In life, you generally don't get the opportunity to be surrounded by what you love. When you do, those stories don't generally start by traveling 17 hours to the other side of the globe. But, if there was a reason to travel this far, this is it!"

Rettinger was invited to Finland for an ultimate, 72-hour Model 3 experience (yes, we're super jealous here, and we want to know how he secured such an invitation). At any rate, the past is the past, so now we just want to know what went down.

Well, here you have it. Rettinger has produced a short but sweet video highlighting the event and his takeaways.

What do you think? This is pretty sweet as far as we can tell. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
