    I should get delivery of my S in November, and plan on driving it to our winter place outside of Tucson in late December from Northern California. No problem getting across Calif but the stretch from Palm Springs/Blythe to Tucson is beyond the probable range, at any speed. So far my plan is to spend the night at a KOA site in Blythe, do a Range Charge overnight, then carefully (slowly) drive to Tucson. I'm not thrilled going 50mph on I-10, as I'll be a hazard to the 80+mph flow. Any ideas on getting quick charge in western Phoenix area? Will sure be nice if/when they put in a SuperCharger station someplace out there.

    Hopefully the Scottsdale store has 70A HPC (and the requisite adapter cable if you didn't spend the $650 for your own)
    Not a supercharger, but better than 30A public charging stations.

    Think I'll give them a call.

    Call the Scottsdale store and spoke with Jason who said they currently only have a Roadster plug. They are awaiting an adapter, but figure they will probably have it by the time I come down at the end of December.
