    What's the situation with the Toronto service center. It doesn't show up on the map. Will they let you charge there?

    Getting my first Tesla taught me to do cat naps. I did a lot of road trips and I learned to sleep while I charged the car. It took me a while but eventually I got so used to it that I could just recline the seat and sleep for 30 min.

    I made to Canada. Not without some trouble, though. Once they peeked on the inside of my car I knew they would ask me to pull over for a search LOL I have no problem them looking through my dirty cloths and fridge. The bigger issue was, I had a client booked there and that is considered...

    Thanks for all the advice on traveling to Canada. I downloaded the app and filled everything out. Set up my entry and I should hopefully be good to go.

    How is driving across the border to Canada these days? I looked at their website and I think I have everything they require (documents). Just wanted to hear from someone who crossed recently.

    I got the last one in NH today. Work has caught up with me and I won't be able to do the last three stations in Maine, though. Next week I hope to make it to Toronto. I will stay in that area for a bit so I should be able to pick up a few. Not sure if it's enough for 1k.

    Some odd thing with the power steering. Certain angles of the steering wheel became 'stiff' and required more force to turn the wheel. It was drivable but I wanted to get it fixed before it got worse.

    Car is fixed and I'm on the road again. Heading toward Maine.

    How often can I max charge?

    Charge to 100% as much as you need taking road trips. Bad weather, a detour, an accident on the road, missing an exit, ... there are many things that can go 'wrong' on a trip suddenly messing up your plans. If you need to charge to 100% on a daily basis, you should look for ways to limit that...

    I'm going to take a little break. I have some small issues with my car and I had to find a service center 8 hours away that had an opening that worked with my travel schedule. Hopefully Tuesday they will get it fixed and then I'm back on track. My next state is NH and Maine. After that I'll try...

    The only first I ever got was Buena Park. I arrived at 1% and as I was driving saw the red pin show up. When I arrived the entire site was still taped off. No one there. I plugged in and got lucky! I remember I was so excited I made a video about it. Then I decided it was way too embarrassing...

    I just looked through the different stats and realized I have visited more new Superchargers this year already than all years combined since I bought my first Tesla early 2014.

    I entered one station wrong yesterday. Just hit the wrong row. The total number is the same, thought. Trying to add a few on Long Island today and tomorrow.

    I just feel it's a massive waste of time and I really don't like driving in this crazy city.

    Yes I was lucky. I arrived late. 9 or 10 pm. It wasn't busy and they just told me to park myself and plug in. Only paid $6 for parking. Not bad considering. Brooklyn 12th street was just super crowded. I arrived at 7 or so and I just saw no way so I decided to just skip it.

    This is from Yesterday. As I mentioned, I might or might not go back to get a few more Manhattan chargers later. Just seems like such a pain. I should be at 957 right now. No way I can catch the others on 1k as I don't have enough new stations around me. But I think by the end of the month.

    Maybe I will give it another try in a few days and drive at night. Not too keen on it.

    After wasting hours and hours in NY and Brooklyn traffic, I have decided skip them all. Not doing that. Every time I visit NY I really want to like it, but end up hating more and more. It's just not my place.

    I just noticed something interesting about the NB and SB Milford CT Superchargers. They SB is labeled 2A and 2B. The NB is labeled 1A and 1B. From a technical side they are actually one station.

    Some of the little joys only people like us can appreciate. When you zoom in on a map to check out a new Supercharger and you realize it is actually 2 very close together. Two for one 👌

    It's been a very long two and a half days. I had some extra time so I thought I'll get as many as I can. One of my challenges is keeping track which one I have visited as I go. The car shows all, tableau is 2 days behind and other than a list I have no visual reference. Anyways, I loves...

    Yes I always give it a try as well and have been lucky a few times. Sometimes the technician is there but haven't officially updated the status.

    I have too many variables to do actual planing. I'm a photographer and have clients across the country. The jobs I have in different places are the major goal posts in terms of place and date. In between I just improvise. Sometimes it works out that there are superchargers in between, other...

    I swear I added Albany and Guilderland as well to the spreadsheet, but it doesn't show up. I had this happen a few times that some of the entries don't seem to stick. Maybe when I had poor internet connection when I added them to the sheet. I'm using mostly the iPhone app.

    I was just commenting on the legal/technical aspect of it. I definitely also use it last as the signage suggests. My point in answering the question was that you won't get a ticket if you use that stall if it's the last and then someone else pulls out from the site making it effectively not the...

    As far as I know, it is perfectly legal to use the spot for charging as a non handicap driver. As I understand in, it is a requirement to have one of the EV charging spot designed to be van accessible, but it is not a handicap parking spot in the traditional way.

    I wish I had more time for YouTube, but I'm still working full time mostly creating social media content. So when I have free time I try to put the cameras and laptops away.

    It takes a while to let go of the life time conditioning that going to a gas station is to fill the car up to full. It is so deeply ingrained in people that they just can't think any other way. My ex, despite having my Model S for years, was never able to wrap her brain around why I never...

    Been there, done that. I was stuck for 24 hours in a snow storm in Texas. Major power outage. I didn't have enough range to drive out of the black out area.
