    If it was up to me, and I wanted the contest to be 'fair', then I'd make it run from place X to place Y, then back to place X. This would remove any benefit of a downhill-only trip.
    Just my two cents.

    So that means that Colorado is Oz. I agree with that! :biggrin:

    After doing some conservative driving the last couple of charges (45-50mph), I got my projected range to 325 miles. Planning a trip from Tampa to the Kennedy Space Center tomorrow. Let's aee what's still left when I get back. Round trip is about 250 miles.

    Looks like my earlier post deleted. My son and I are going for it in FL- 400+ miles from our house down the center of the state to Alligator Alley and back up to Lake Okechobee. Started at 12:22 am. Check our progress on Twitter at dmetcalf. Mods, feel free to repost pics- just hard to do while on the road : ).



    Mod Note: It didn't get deleted Dave, you got given your own thread once we realized your were underway! :smile:
