    END: Portofino Hotel, 260 Portofino Way, Redondo Beach, CA 90277

    CURRENT RECORD TIMES
    SPEED:

    The current plan is to leave Los Angeles and casually drive to the "Reach The Beach" event in MD. We will leave that event and head for New York. Indulge in some actual pizza, load the frunk up with real NY food :) and head out the following day.

    Good Luck Jim. Subscribed to Twitter to follow "live"... Test out Periscope from Twitter as well as Meerkat (which looks like you've already done.)

    Thanks Dennis! I have... Does Periscope allow Android users? Maybe Im old but my complaint with periscope was the texts blocking the video... or I may have been doing something wrong.

    I'm on iOS... Periscope is owned by Twitter, and it had better reviews... I loaded both on my phone, and have only started to play with it...

    Set up was easier on Periscope for me... Though more seem to use Meerkat right now

    Going to let tesla plan it but I'll put the route on Twitter feed asap as soon as we load it. U r in MD though so doubt we will be that low but just might. I'll plug it in reverse and see how close it gets to u

    For those not following on Twitter, our good friend NoMoGas is now in the longest stretch between Superchargers in Missouri with 7mph headwinds.
