Hello my TMC friends.

I wanted to share a post about taking my family on a 2824-mile road trip entirely using my Model S earlier this month:

http://tesla.dauger.com/roadtrip1608/

We visited National Parks (it is the centenary) and numerous points of interest in Utah, Arizona, and Colorado, like Monument Valley, Arches, Bryce, Zion, Antelope Canyon, Mesa Verde, Meteor Crater, and Canyonlands. I documented everything, including the planning and the execution of the trip, including the car and our family along the entire trip. We had a great time! The car and the charging infrastructure (both Supercharger and Destination Charging) performed flawlessly. Please enjoy!

I really liked Kai's Power tools when I used Photoshop.

Great blog!

Thanks very much! I was one of the two original programmers who wrote KPT v1 and v2 while working for Kai. We had a great team way back when. The other programmer got his Roadster and Model S before I bought my S, and lurks on these TMC boards too.

Great log, and an impressive use of Google Maps' customization feature. What a wonderful trip that must have been.

I totally missed that you were part of Kai's. We're mostly Lightroom with only a bit of Photoshop and recently have been using Affinity much more than Photoshop. Loved Kai's though.

I've updated my log of the trip with scans of the AAA map, a more extended introduction, a few more pictures, and other elements.

Before and immediately after the trip, most people I talk to can't imagine how I could do it, particularly "how do you know where to charge?". I am trying to use the pictures and the details so that the reader feels the reality of the trip, and therefore proving this all-electric solution works in the real world.

Now that my site is complete, I'm thinking about giving Tesla a call about this trip, to suggest that showing a beautiful scenic slower-paced trip like this (rather than race through harsh winter storms in 2014; that did not look fun) is a better way to convince the public to look forward to our all-electric future.
