EVs in a charging desert

My wife and I have been car free for years but are moving to a more remote location and are looking at cars.

At this point we're heavily considering EVs, despite planning on living in a charging desert. We did an extended test drive in a model Y a month ago.

The trickiest leg we'll probably travel will be from Farmington, NM to Page, AZ - 230 miles without any L3 chargers, with the nearest L2 charger adding a 50 mile detour. If only there were a SC in Kayenta. Doing that in winter is likely to be rough.

Anyway, this is just a bit of a ramble/intro.

I feel your pain. I bought a used M3 and I didn't have supercharging set up, so I had to get from Chicago to middle Missouri on Level 2. It was awful. lol, but worth it!
