    Looking for input on how long it took and how taxing the drive was. I am considering doing it at Thanksgiving this year. I'm not looking for any speed records just a nice cruise at 70 mph over 2 days hopefully.
    Tthanks

    Roughly 1350 miles without stopping would take about 19 hours, but you will need 11 SpC stops at an average of 35 minutes each? adding 6.4 hours but if your stoping to charge while having a meals then subtract 6 meals & 1 overnight sleep charge so that leaves you with sitting around charging 4x's adding 2 hours basically (this is how I explain long trips to my kids)...2 long days is doable but I would add a second night, Vegas is always good.

    If you spend the night in Vegas most of the major hotel valets will charge your car & you can skip the SpC, I stay at the Palazzo & you simply hand valet your car & they handle charging, just tell them you are leaving early in the morning & give the guy a nice tip, check plugshare for info on the other hotels.
