I am looking at making a drive from Dallas to northern Michigan next month as we're still not comfortable on a plane at this time. There are two routes and a gap in super chargers either way. The way I am leaning towards is up through Oklahoma. Typically in my ICE I would take US75 to US69 to I44. That would be 335 miles to the first SC in Joplin MO. There are a few destination chargers along US69, but I hate to make an already brutally long drive that much longer as we sit for over an hour at a destination charger. Also worried about counting on one of those and finding it full or out of order. The out of the way route would be to go a bit west to Tulsa, but that is still 253 miles to the SC and ABRP says to stay below 62 MPH in my LR AWD, again lengthening the drive. On the way back it would be even worse as I can assume leaving at 100% charge on the way there, would take a long time to get there on the way back. The last thing I want is to run into some snafu, I'd never be able to convince the family to take the 3 on a long road trip again. So, what's the longest anyone has dared to go? Would you try 253 freeway miles in an LR AWD? Anyone drive this route - what was your solution?
