Well a guess a snow storm was not the best time to try out our first road trip but what the heck.
Loaded up the family about 9am Sunday and drove like a bat out of heck from Central NJ at about 70 mph with temp at 70. Planned on getting to Westchester Tesla with about 150 miles on car grad a quick 30 40 miles and power into RI with miles to spare.
Did not work out as I thought. Pulled in with about 80 miles on car spent almost 4 hours hearing it from the family and charging. Oops did I mention we have a 60 watt. Yeah well family was not that upset ate walked around the mall a few times and go out on the road. This time I was smart drove much more conservatively about 65 on cruise control and NO Heat. Hey life requires a little sacrifice. Pulled in at Mystic Aquarium not that I needed the charge,, had to get coffee, tea & coco for my passengers. Charged for less than an hour at pulled into RI with miles to spare.
After a round of Ice cube jokes from the family and a few test drives, searched around town for a charger, that was fun. Between the hospital that had to prominent ones up front in the public parking lot free access but I guess since it was sol close to the door the 2 IC vehicles could not pass up the opportunity.
RIC (Rhode Island College) had a 2 free charging station with open access sign said 4 hours but I let it sit overnight.
Well on the trip back will pry to push it back to Westchester Tesla to borrow some juice,, defrost and prepare for the final 90 mile trek back home... wish me luck stay tuned...
