    Seems like this should be an annual award like the others (Top Charger 2017, etc.) as there are just more chargers out there nowadays than there were in the past. I put up 35 in 2019, @Big Earl put up 40 in 2020, so far @Limited has 39 in 2021. Is 50 possible in one day....maybe? Depending on...

    I stated a few days ago that I didn't think there was 1000 miles left in my trip to push me over the 100K mark in my car...well, I should never underestimate my ability to increase the distance travelled just to get a few extra chargers. With the combination of stops that I made today I reached...

    Alright, I'm in DC. Leave it to me to turn what should be a 500 mile drive into a 2800 mile one...but I've arrived in time for the fireworks and sight seeing to commence in earnest tomorrow. Although I did do a bit of sight seeing up in Gettysburg today. I've never actually been there before...

    Hmm... What route did you take? I went there from King George and I'll say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. Was a bit dark towards the end though so that made it interesting... The route to Waldorf was straight and boring though....so that might be the difference.

    My Tableau map is looking a bit wonky this morning. Missing dots that I have not been to yet and once again showing places that I have already cleared. Is this something on my end that I can fix?

    I'm convinced that's why there are three SC's at the extreme southern tip of Texas... Because I've been there twice now. The other area of the country that should be expecting a new charger very soon (now that I've cleared it) is Cape Cod. You're welcome.

    Today's challenge was just a whole lot of miles. I even dropped some of the ones in VA that I was going to do just so that I could actually ensure that I could be in DC on time for this weekend. Tomorrow's challenge will be traffic. It's probably going to be another long day...but if I get...

    Catching up before heading out for the day... I must say, as I've ventured over grounds that I've mostly already covered once before that there is a significant convenience difference between the older V2 charger locations and the new V3 locations. I'll take a Wawa over a Mall any day and I...

    Is it safe to leave my model s overnight at the tire shop

    Nowadays you can't turn off the GPS tracker in the car unless you know the owners profile password for the Tesla account...so technically, even if it does "go missing" you can see where it is on the app on the phone and direct the local authorities to the vehicle's new location. Generally you...

    Bah. You need to miss Superchargers the old fashioned way, like I do. Either the Tesla tech turns them on two days after I leave the state (Gainesville, FL), or I just drive right past them w/o checking to see if they are active (Newport News, VA) :)

    Lusk is the first place i ever had to actually wait to use a SC. It was just after the Custer rally ended and I was on the way down to Denver. That's probably why you remember it fondly and those of us that have had to wait in line, for a four stall charger in the middle of no where Wyoming...

    That's not how it works. They spec out a site and obtain all the permits and such for the type of charger that they will be installing months before any of the actual work gets started.
