Finally, after a long wait, the Rivian has arrived! On Friday 13th May, my Compass Yellow was delivered with 12 miles on the odometer. Originally I had ordered Canyon Red with Ocean Coast interior but due to some issues that were out of our control, I decided to settle for one of the several color choices given to me by my guide.

I am sure many people can relate to waiting more than a year for their order to be fulfilled. But now that it is here, I couldn't be happier! At the First Drive event, they only had a few colors available but they did have a display of parts in each possible color. The yellow looks great and I'm sure it will make an impression wherever I go.

My interior choice ended up being LA Silver with FE interior which is scheduled for delivery at the end of this month. However, there are a few things I found out about the delivery process. Firstly, no Rivian charger will be delivered with the truck; it ships 1-2 weeks after taking delivery. Secondly, accessories will also be shipped after delivery usually 1-2 days later. Lastly, if you didn't get a LE truck then there is no ‘magic band’ for you; it will be sold on the Gear Store at a later date. Delivery and walk around can take over an hour or longer depending on your needs.

Big Kahuna has recently taken delivery of his Glacier White with Green Interior and he got his charger 2 days after confirming his SD silver with his guide. He also mentioned that his RT1 is currently on a train from Normal and should reach San Diego in 10 days.

For those who are still waiting for their Rivian, hang in there! It's worth the wait as you'll soon find out once yours arrives!
