Harris Ranch
This will be my third time at Harris Ranch this week.  It's an excellent stop with comfortable places to sit, good food, great beer and a fast charger. Danielle's Supercharger Dance Sizzlin' California Beef

On the road again!  This time we are doing a quick tour of California.  We are driving up the 5 to Napa Valley and then going to take Highway 1 down the coast.  It promises to be a beautiful drive and being that we are in California, electrons will be freel...

Road Trippin
We drove 2800.4 miles, using 976.8 kWh at an average of 349 Wh/mi over six days. In my previous vehicle this would have meant about $622 in gasoline.  We paid about 41 dollars for electricity during our trip.  All of the superchargers were free.  One of the...

Brewtus Returns to his Birthplace
The last couple portions of our trip were pretty uneventful.  Which for me is good, but for you all means boring.  We stopped in Indio, California to buffer our charge (again at a Nissan dealership) and have dinner.  We lost track of time and were almost fu...

Last Supercharge!
Quartzsite was our fifteenth and last supercharger before we hit home.  With eight stalls it was the biggest we had seen yet.  I wasn't impressed with the Carl's Jr location though, so instead we broke into our survival salsa.  At this point, I think it's s...

Phoenix Sun
We dropped almost 4500 feet coming into Phoenix, getting far beyond "ideal range".  Beyond that the temperature also went up to 72 degrees.  We were both shedding layers at this point and Brewtus was so happy he didn't know what to do with himself.  Another...

Trip Recovery
I woke up this morning still somewhat grumpy.  New Mexico had soured me and I was ready to get to our destination.  We woke up just about fully charged and headed out towards Flagstaff.  There wasn't much to look at along the drive - vastly different from t...

(Un)lucky Number Thirteen
We left Farmington with the plan to stop for a partial charge at Gallup and then get to Flagstaff before the night's end.  The Flagstaff Supercharger is at a Courtyard Marriott.  Originally I was kind of annoyed at having so many Superchargers in hotel park...

Back on Route
We left the RV park in Dolores and had to make the choice to go through Durango where there were known charging options, or go the route our Navigation was suggesting, straight to the Farmington Supercharger.  The 'straight' route was about 85 miles distanc...

Plan B
The superchargers thus far have taken most of the decision making out of our trip.  Without supercharging, road trips in an EV can be incredibly tenuous depending on your resources and decision making skills.  It can be fatiguing constantly watching your ra...
