Planning my first trip outside the LA-SD corridor where I'll need to make charging stops. While the trip to SLO is 250 and theoretically within the range of the MS. It seems like a good idea to do some charging along the way particularly on the return as I am not certain that I'll be able to fully charge overnight. The hotel where we're staying (Madonna Inn) only has 110v. And, I have yet to use a supercharger. Would appreciate any input on the noted options and stops.
OC to SpaceX supercharger in Hawthorne. Just topping off as its only 55 miles from home but that will give me enough to make it the remaining 193 mi. to SLO without range anxiety.
Return Option 1
SLO to Lebec supercharger (137 mi) via Hwy 166 (Is this a good route? Have not been on it. I know there's a mountain pass)
Lebec to OC (138 mi)
Return Option 2
SLO to Santa Barbara (95 mi) Not sure where the best place to charge. Would like to grab lunch while there
SB to OC (150 mi) May have to stop at SpaceX depending on range remaining
