    Does anyone know the blue S with the large roof rack container that I saw during the last 20 miles to the Goodland supercharger heading west December 26th (Saturday)? He had his hazards on, doing probably 40mph, with windows completely fogged up (because he couldn't use the heat), and fighting what was probably a 25-30mph headwind. I just wanted to give him a pat on the back and tell him he was almost there. But more importantly now, did you make it? And what could your watts per mile possibly have been? He had everything going against him.

    Ah, yes.... increase your frontal area by 20%, up goes your drag by the same measure & thus range drops entirely commensurably! MW
