For spring break I decided to take my Family up to Vancouver Canada for a couple of days. Never been to Canada. We are leaving this Saturday morning and I have two options either go hwy 101 or highway 5 to Oregon. Just last week Mt Shasta super charger showed 4 stalls, but just check this morning and now it says 16 stalls does anyone know if there are really 16 now? I don't want to show if there is only 4 with a long line during the day.. We plan to spend a night in Roseburg, Oregon and continue the following day all the way up to Seattle. Spend one day in Seattle going to the needle and pike market. We plan to arrive in Vancouver on Monday Afternoon. On the way back we plan to stop in Portland for a day before heading back home.
It’s the first road trip for the Model 3 so I have a little range anxiety, I have the mid-range. I already map the route via abetterouteplaner and it gave me all the stops and times at all the superchargers. Maps, Navigation, LTE, supercharging should work fine in Canada correct? I will have no cell phone service, so I will rely on the navigation in Vancouver.A couple of years I did a cross country road trip to Miami so we are used to road trips. I have the option of taking an ICE vehicle, but I figure if I have free super charging it should save me about $300 and drive the safest car out there. I will be taking a tire repair kit, plus lots of snacks for my kids while charging at superchargers. If anyone has done this route or part of the route or has tips I would really appreciate any info.
