Blanding SC direct to Holbrook SC - has anyone done this in S85? Any range anxiety?

    I will be driving back to Phoenix from a trip to Ft Collins next month and would like to return thru Moab and Blanding to the Holbrook SC. Anyone make this trip without going thru Gallup?

    EVtripplaner.com says 224miles and 205 range miles between Blanding and Holbrook- at 70F no wind... Watch your speed, especially if there are strong headwinds and you'll make it after a range charge in Blanding.
    I'd start the trip at 5 under the speed limit and enjoy the scenery. once you are pretty sure you'll make it you can speed up.

    I did, but can’t remember the details. It’s mostly reservation land, so speed limit of 60 or 65 saving energy.

    We did Flagstaff to Blanding - 243 miles which is a little bit longer than Holbrook to Blanding. 2015 S85D.
    Needed to go slow for a bit. Yes, some range anxiety, but made it. Hotel in Tuba city has a 240 destination charger if you want to kill some time and get more juice, but it is just faster to go a little slower - 65 mph.

    Kayenta would really be a welcome addition in that area.
