Well, my family has still not nailed down things so I can get a plane ticket to Chicago in early October, so I'm starting to look at planning for driving the Model S there. The added benefit is I would have my own car there versus taking cabs, but then I also have to think about parking. A straight Google Maps look says the optimum route is 750 miles. If I take the route through which the Superchargers are located in, it bumps up to 775 miles. However, if I actually plan for hitting the Superchargers, I'm looking at 862 miles per EvTripPlanner.com I'm hoping for input on where I may be able to shave the Supercharger penalty and take a slightly different route with the goal of saving overall time. That is the hard part since off the Supercharger grid, it would be hard to save time versus driving an extra 100 miles. Plus, I do not have a CHAdeMO adapter for my Model S. Chances are good that I will end up on the 862 mile journey, but sharing in case I'm missing something. I also hope any Chicago-area owners could help me out where were to plan on charging while I'm there since my family won't have access to an outlet for me to use. So far, the plan is: 1. Home -> Charlotte Supercharger - I only have 120v at home, so I will need to top off before heading out. 2. Charlotte SpC -> HPWC via Plugshare in the Greater Asheville area 3. Stop #2 -> Knoxville SpC - Charlotte SpC -> Knoxville SpC is 333 rated miles with generous weight and speed calls at EvTripPlanner.com, so I must make stop #2 to get some range to Knoxville 4. Knoxville SpC -> London, KY SpC - 151 Rated Miles - Depending on how full I leave Knoxville, I probably could skip this one, but it seems like its right off I-75 North on my way (no detour needed), so why not. 5. London SpC -> Lexington, KY SpC - 101 Rated Miles 6. Lexington SpC -> Cincinnati SpC - 137 Rated Miles If I am reading this right, I will have 8 hours of drive time by the time I reach Cincinnati. I will likely be ready to call it a day (or even sooner than Cincinnati) given charging time making this much longer than 8 hours at that point. The Indianapolis SpC is at a LaQuinta Inn, so that would have been the natural stop though. 7. Cincinnati SpC -> Indianapolis SpC - 155 Rated Miles 8. Indy SpC -> Lafayette, IN SpC - 91 Rated Miles 9. Lafayette SpC -> Country Club Hills, IL SpC - 157 Rated Miles - I would make this stop b/c of not knowing charging situation in Chicago. Otherwise, I would have range to make it the rest of the way. 10. Country Club Hills SpC -> Destination - 28 Rated Miles Trip Planner is much more optimistic (wow, I can't believe I just said that!): 1. Home -> Knoxville SpC w/ -21% battery remaining 2. Knoxville SpC -> Lexington, KY SpC - charge for an hour 3. Lexington SpC -> Indianapolis SpC - charge for an hour 4. Indy SpC -> Country Club Hills, IL SpC - charge for 10 min (I would charge to 90% though) 5. Country Club Hills SpC -> destination What do you all think?
