So we've learned that we simply can't take our Model S to our house in Alpine. Even with the stop in Folsom (minimum lost time = 1 hour), if you then drive normally you arrive with almost no range. Dinner plans? Better be at Squaw with their new charger or you're going to have to walk. Genuine range anxiety, in other words. So the Mercedes wagon will always get the call. Also means a Model X won't figure in our plans, when it's time to replace the truck.
It's surprising that all the various mentions of another supercharger on route 80 east of Sacramento haven't led to a station yet. Numerically the traffic on 80 is several times that of 50. We can't be the only owners suggesting this? It's doubly a shame given how much we like the car.
