    Thanks.

    Yes. Should be fine. Although there might be a stretch where I wish I had an X100D:rolleyes:

    Technically we've owned it for seven days. But we have not yet taken possesion. We're driving out from the East Coast to pick it up in Las Vegas.

    I enjoyed your blog, congrats on the Bowlus! Your Wh/mi numbers are in line with what @jackbowers has posted.

    I am curious about the image you posted showing winds effecting your car. What software is that?

    Yeah, few spots in Missouri & Colorado where it is a bit mountainous - need to keep some possible contingency/backups on hand ;-)

    At some stations you can pull in behind the Superchargers to avoid blocking extra slots (that might have worked at Hayes). The cables will reach across any islands that are less than 5 feet.
