    This was the first day I’ve been able to open up the throttle and go with traffic. It was very nice to see that even around ~75MPH while driving normally in California traffic the car performed *better* than rated range.
    We stopped for charging in Ukiah at the free charger close to City Hall only to find that the parking spot was extremely short (might not have fit my MINI) so as to partially block the exit from the parking lot. Parking control said they were ok with it, but we felt differently, so we drove just a bit further to the Solar Living Institute in Hopland to access their free 14-50 outlets. What a wonderful place for a stop and great/fast charging. Highly recommend stopping and patronizing this establishment!
    With two hours of charging we had more than enough range to make it to Novato.
    Novato has lots of free charging, especially downtown by City Hall. Very nice!
