Now that our memories from West Coast/Canada trip are firmly stashed away, we are looking at a new trip for 2015, encompassing Utah Parks and beyond.
The idea originated this May when we were on the road, thinking about driving San Diego to Denver to visit family, with a stop in Moab to see the Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef parks. And back through New Mexico and Arizona.
Last week, things started getting out of hand. Steve said, why not head to Lake Superior (where there is no fast charging). Heck, we have dual chargers onboard, and we used them successfully in Canada. There's something about the Model S that starts spinning crazy dreams about heading out and never stopping.
We are not sure that crossing the Rockies in May is advisable if there is too much snow. Or, crossing the plains in late May or early June. Should we delay? Any advice would be appreciated.
I've tried searching for threads I remembered which contained specifics of where to stay, etc. But I will ask again, because I can't find all of them, and wish to consolidate all the information in this thread.
This morning, we wrote down what EVTripPlanner.com predicted for miles and rated miles and elevations between the charging sites. The trip one-way will be 2,300 miles. The legs: San Diego to Las Vegas. Two week stay in Moab. One week visiting family in Denver. 3 day stay near Mt. Rushmore. Stay somewhere in between M.R. and Green Bay. HPWC overnight at Aloft Hotel. Drive to family cottage in upper Michigan and tour around.
Return home? Keep going to east coast? Are we crazy??
