There are a couple places within a 250-mile range that I'd love to take road trips to for 1-week vacations, but no convenient charging stations nearby. For example, I'd love to take my Model S to Wildwood, NJ. It's around 90 miles from the Delaware supercharger, so I'd definitely need to top off in town. They're very old-fashioned though, and I wouldn't be surprised if they've never seen an electric car before. Does anyone have any experience explaining to mom-and-pop shops that you'd like to plug into their external outlets while you park your car? It seems to me that they'd be taking a big leap of faith on how much you're costing them, and there isn't a convient system in place for them to charge you even if they wanted to. How do you explain it?
