    With all the mountain passes this was by far the longest leg in our journey. We needed to stop in Springfield (Eugene) for 5 freakin hours! And we were parked right next to a fast DC ChaDeMo charger! If we had an adapter our wait would have only been 30 minutes! 10 times faster! We walked about a mile to the local mall where we killed as much time as possible. We left with 20 miles of buffer range and arrived with 21! Again, can’t say enough about the car. And we arrived at the Tesla Tigard mall parking garage 14-50 outlet and plugged in for a few hours while we thanked Brian at the Tesla store and grabbed a bit to eat at Portland Seafood Company. Drove to the hotel about a mile away and I dropped off the family to bring the car back to the 14-50 and left it there overnight for a full max range charge.
